This Louisville real estate chart shows all the home sales for Jefferson County by month for the past 6 years. It’s important to remember to compare a month’s performance with the same month of the previous year, not the month that we just finished.
Sales in June 2014 beat the previous year 1,069 to 1,009. I bet you didn’t see that coming?!
For the month of July, we came up a bit short when 1,004 Louisville homes were sold for the month, compared to 1,102 homes that were sold during July 2013. That’s a decrease of 8.9%.
For the year, 2014 is 5.5% behind the sales totals for the previous year. It’s not impossible to surpass it but highly unlikely.
This is the official Louisville Real Estate Chart for home sales according to GLAR data but I produce other great charts, such as the Housing Reports that you can access via the masthead, that shows specific areas in Louisville as defined by MLS areas.
I also cover the Louisville real estate scene for Insider Louisville where most recently I wrote a piece about Elite Homes and how Louisville new construction has changed over the years.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on any real estate topic. Cheers!
