October 2011 Louisville Home Sales – UP!

Ford employees transferring to Louisville may be playing a small part in keeping Louisville homes sales moving upward! The number of Louisville Homes going under contract in September 2011 was up 4.8% over September 2010. Additionally the number of homes that sold and closed during the same period was up 15%.

The Real Estate Sky is NOT Falling!

Despite record temperatures and fear of a faltering economy, Louisville Homes going under contract for the month of July 2011 actually increased almost 11 percent from the year before (see data below).

Weather played a key roll in slowing home sales in February. Yet despite snow, ice and freezing temperatures, 7% more Louisville homes went under contract during February 2011 than the year before. Sure it’s not a big increase, but hopefully it’s a sign of good things to come. Remember last year at this time we had the 1st time home buyers $8000 tax credit and the $6500 move up buyer credit. Additionally during the month of February 2011 interest rates inched upwards for several weeks … [Read more...]
