Louisville Real Estate Update (June 2015 – May 2016)
Home prices moved higher in every MLS area analyzed during this article. This is what you would expect for May with the Summer months approaching.
It’s also what you should find whenever competition for the available properties increases, which is also exactly what we’re facing right now with incredibly low inventory levels.
Areas and neighborhoods with homes priced between $150,000 and $200,000 saw incredible sales activity during May. This is a very sought after price range and with limited options, homes sold very quickly.
As prices move higher the Days on Market metric increases but really not by much. If you hear someone talk about how fast the the Louisville real estate market is… they’re not lying.
Very strong month for both metrics in Jeffersontown and the surrounding areas. Prices bounded higher due to increased competition but that didn’t stop home sales from besting the previous year. Strong!
Home prices are moving in the right direction with a strong number in May. But for the third straight month home sales lag behind last year’s totals. Area 8 (Middletown and surrounding areas) home values haven’t improved over the course of the year like most of Louisville, in fact they’re down.
Areas where homes are higher priced haven’t performed as well lately. Here we see our Prospect MLS area fall behind the previous year in home sales during May. Prices are improving but not at the same rate as other locations in Louisville.
While home sales are blazing in South Oldham, North Oldham isn’t realizing the same experience. Not a horrible month but as you can see in the chart, behind the mark set last May. Values are also flat in Area 20.
Home sales were terrific during May in our South Oldham MLS area. Prices continue to be a mixed bag, jumping up then dropping. For the year there is only modest improvement in this area’s home values.
