Louisville Real Estate Update (March 2016 – February 2017)
Not stellar but very strong month for Louisville real estate considering our almost complete lack of housing inventory. Almost matched last year’s record numbers with very little in the cupboard.
A few areas saw prices decline but that’s somewhat normal in Winter months. Expect those to rebound further in March.

February was not kind to Area 2 with both metrics falling steeply. Prices do tend to decline during the Winter and last February was unusually strong so maybe it’s not as bad as it looks.
Area 3 does fairly well this month as higher priced homes didn’t take the hit that the super low have, which helps this MLS area. Price trend just keeps moving up.
If they had more homes available to sell, this area would sell them. Prices are struggling to keep pace.
Looks at that price trend line! Price just continue to rise and sales are on pace with last year’s record.
Very strong month for Area 8 with both metrics performing well in February.
Similar to Area 2, we see some major price correction here even as sales continue their 4th straight month of beating the previous year.
Oldham County home sales really have a great deal of potential, especially if there were some sub $300k options available to buyers. Maybe with land prices developers just can’t make the numbers work.
About time prices move higher here in South Oldham but it comes at the expense of even lower sales. Just 20 unites in an entire month is not going to win any awards.

Not the best month for sales activity but not horrible either. Prices are moving lower but I expect they will rebound in March and start climbing yet again.
Selling your home in 2017 will not be very difficult unless it’s a total fixer. There are still lots of buyers looking to make a move. If you would like to know what your home is worth, please contact me. I’m always happy to help!
