http://www.batonrougehomeappraisal.com/ – Greenwell Springs Central LA Appraisers: Bellingrath Lakes Sudivision 2010 Price Trends Wrap Up!
Overall, there were nine (9) 2010 sales which brought the median sales price higher than 2009’s $304,400 and higher than 2008’s $294,500.

There is one (1) foreclosure noted on Lake Stream Drive. And, that unfinished home that sat vacant for about 1 year or more was sold in 2010 for $148,000, an MLS sale, and is being finished. NOTE: If you are considering purchasing a home in Bellingrath Lakes and don’t want to pay too much, I would advise one to order a “Pre-Purchase Appraisal” from Accurate Valuations Group as there are at least two (2) current listings in Bellingrath Lakes well above market support.
