Look at the jump in closed sales for Harvey!  While I don’t know the details on every single transaction, I would project that the large increase was due to the expected expiration on November 30th of the tax credit for first time home buyers that has been extended and expanded. 

Update to 2009 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit

Should sales continue at the same pace (which is possible given the 58 pending sales), Harvey would be the shining star of West Bank real estate and the only seller’s market in the area, despite the fact that the number of sales is down almost 17% from the same time last year.

The average home sale price in Harvey for October was $158,129, bringing the year to date average to $163,373, UP 5.9% from the 2008 average and the only increase in home values that we are seeing on the West Bank of New Orleans. 

While this is good news, it’s important to remember that if you purchased your home during 2005-2007 you may only be at a break even point or experiencing a loss of equity.  Before deciding to sell, it’s important to know what’s going on in your neighborhood.  Get this week's free Harvey LA market snapshot
