Forecast for the Baton Rouge Real Estate Market


View Larger Map

There's some good news just off the press:  Baton Rouge is one of the top ten "Hottest Real Estate Markets in 2009" according to Housing Predictor,  This independent market forecaster defines "Hottest Markets" as "areas of the country where there is stronger employment, prospects of growth and promises of prosperity.  They represent exceptions in a cascade of deflationary housing markets that are projected to appreciate despite an economy that has years to fully turn around."  Now, that's some really good news for the Baton Rouge metropolitan area!

Baton Rouge shares this honor with cities in Texas Wyoming, Mississippi, Utah, North and South Dakota, and Idaho.

Additionally it was announced this week that Census 2010 is creating 1200 new jobs in the Capital City.
