Real Estate Market Report January 2014

2013 was a great year for real estate in Lafayette and Acadiana and it looks like 2014 is off to a similar start.

Real estate market report for Lafayette January 2014

As we can see, home sales for January this year are on par with those of January last year. Pending sales, however, are lower now than they were at this time in 2013. In Lafayette parish, there are currently 464 home sales pending compared to 582 last year and in Acadiana, the number is 714 compared to 834 in February 2013.

Another factor worth noting is the fact that our inventory of homes for sale has been slipping since the beginning of the year. There are less homes on the market now than there has been for the last 14 months.

Homes for sale in Lafayette, LA and Acadiana

I think the dip in inventory might have something to do with the unusually cold winter we are having this year in South Louisiana. If you are thinking about selling your home, don’t wait much longer. Inventory will be going up very soon as warmer weather settles in, which means more competition for your home on the market.

2013: A Record Year for Keller Williams Realty!

2013 was a record year for Keller Williams and 2014 promises to be just as extraordinary. Training Magazine recently named Keller Williams #2 on its worldwide Training 125. The highest ranking real estate franchise on the list! In addition, Keller Williams Realty will share over $2.6 million in profits with KW associates for January 2014. That is the best profit sharing January in the history of KW by over 20%! In 2013, the company shared over $78,000,000 with its associates as we became the #1 company in the US and then in North America by agent count. In Lafayette alone, Keller Williams shared over $260,000 of profits with us last year. All of this as KW turned 30!

Keller Williams is looking to hire and train a select group of motivated Realtors. If you are looking to build a career in real estate, or looking to take your existing career to the next level, there is no better place to start that than the #1 Real Estate Brokerage in North America. No experience necessary; We will train you!

Unparalleled for its focus on the agents, its cutting edge technology, its training that is above excellent, and its caring & sharing culture (including sharing of the profits!), it is no surprise that KW is the largest and fastest growing real estate company in North America with over 93,000 agents and 700 offices around the world.
