We have recently seen a resurgence of interest in the Point, but are in need of some new blood to hit the market, since the existing homes have not fit what buyers are looking for. Sellers willing to part with their homes for at or under $200,000 should consider going on the market as quickly as they can.
Home prices in Algiers Point
After a rally in 2010, average prices dropped again in 2011, ending the year down to $180,823. There is interest in the neighborhood, but so many of the homes have deferred maintenance or partially complete renovations that buyers are choosing to wait it out. Spending a few dollars to prepare your home for sale would be well advised in any market, but particularly in the Point right now.
