J'Town Condo Development Offers Upgrades in Louisville, KY - 07/31/09 09:16 AM
In Louisville, KY, there is a condo development in Jeffersontown, or J'Town, that is brand new and is located on just off of Six Mile Lane. Even in the middle of a down market, one of the worst that J'Town has seen, this development at Magnolia Place, has continued to generate some sales and fill out its building. Besides offering a quality product and a more than reasonable price, one of the methods of attracting buyers, when other developments are really struggling, has been to offer upgrades not often found in units at a comparable price. For instance, buyers can opt (0 comments)
The Steroid Era of Real Estate - 07/30/09 10:26 AM
When observing the local real estate market, most analysts and reporters consistently compare this year's data to last year's data, or this month's data to last month's data. This is a particular pet peeve of mine for many reasons, of which I will share a few. First, the time period is too small. Would you really take much notice if a "professional" told you that we are in a Buyer's Market because we sold fewer homes today than we did yesterday? Of course not. Obviously, that time period is too small to be useful. I maintain that months are too small as (0 comments)
The Highlands Restaurant Scene Still Hard to Beat in Louisville, KY - 07/29/09 12:35 PM
The Highlands of Louisville Ky is awash in top notch dining and has been for years. There appears to be little momentum to change that basic characteristic. As a matter of fact, Louisville is often rated in the top five cities in the nation for the ratio of fine dining when compared to the number of citizens, and much of that is due to the restaurants present in the Highlands. Bardstown Road serves as the major corridor of the Highlands, and so it should be no surprise to find the bulk of fine restaurants on that street. This quick post is (0 comments)
Condo Market in Jeffersontown (J'Town) Kentucky - Mid Year Report for 2009 - 07/28/09 09:45 AM
The J'Town Condo Market is probably doing better than most people think. As we continue in a depressed market, with a glut of condos in downtown Louisville, most people assume that condo sales are down across the city. However, this is simply not the case, as I will illustrate with statistics drawn from the J'town part of our city. Since the beginning of the year, over 40 units have sold, just in Area 7 of Louisville, which is basically Jeffersontown, also known as J'Town, with part of Fern Creek thrown in. Looking at those 40 units a bit closer, we see (2 comments)
Home Marketing Advice for Home Sellers in St. Matthews Kentucky - 07/27/09 11:27 AM
Selling your house in the St Matthews neighborhood of Louisville, KY shouldn't be as hard as many home sellers try to make it. St. Matthews historically has been one of the better selling parts of town, and this year is no different, which should play right into the hands of anyone looking to sell. But please remember, it is all relative. St. Matthews may be selling better than other parts of town, but every neighborhood is down when compared to just a few years ago. And St. Matthews is no different. All I am saying is that it is stronger than (2 comments)
Real Estate Advice for FSBOs in St. Matthews Neighborhood Of Louisville Ky - 07/24/09 09:21 AM
Selling your house FSBO in the St Matthews neighborhood of Louisville, KY shouldn't be as hard as many home sellers try to make it. St. Matthews historically has been one of the better selling parts of town, and this year is no different, which should play right into the hands of anyone looking to sell, either with representation, or without. Many homeowners mistakenly believe that if they live in a good neighborhood, like St. Matthews, that all they have to do is place a generic for sale sign out front, and that buyer will line up ready to buy their home.

St. Matthews Restaurant Scene on the move in Louisville, KY - 07/23/09 10:25 AM
The number and quality of restaurants in the St. Matthews neighborhood of Louisville Ky has been growing dramatically in the last few years, and things don't appear to be slowing down. Which is great news for those of us who live and eat in the St. Matthews area. There have traditionally been a fair number of higher end restaurants available, which are quite well known throughout the city, such as Del Frisco's steak house and Equus, both located right in the middle of St. Matthews, close to where the old Sear's building used to be. Within the last few years, Havana (0 comments)
New Construction in Louisville's J'Town Neighborhood! - 07/21/09 09:24 AM
There's new construction in the J'Town neighborhood of the Louisville real estate market. That came as a bit of a surprise to me. I've been aware of new homes popping up occassionally, but yesterday I drove by a new development of entry level priced condos right off of Six Mile Lane. I am not the listing agent, so don't think that I am simply using a blog post to drive business to myself. i am simply trying to let people know about these new entry level condos that appear to be quite nice. I could see that they were all brick (0 comments)
Louisville Kentucky Real Estate Agent Greg Fleischaker's Yard Signs Measure Twice As Large As Most Other Signs! - 07/18/09 08:48 PM
Have you ever looked at a Louisville KY real estate yard sign? I mean really look at it? Slow down the next time you drive by one, and thing about what you are looking at. What are the signs selling? Are they selling the real estate company, the individual agent, the fact that the home is being sold FSBO, or are they actually marketing the property? Unless you are looking at one of my signs, the answer is most likely that the sign is there to market the agent or the brokerage. The agent may have their picture on there, the (2 comments)

Louisville Highlands Real Estate Blog - February Real Estate Sales Numbers Down. Way Down. - 07/16/09 01:27 PM
Late last year, I was able to write about a few parts of town where home values were still rising, even in our current bad market. Or maybe there were some areas that were about even with the previous year. One of the areas I spoke about was The Highlands on Louisville's East side. However, looking at February's numbers, I really can't give any good news, except that February is over! In all of 2008, the median sales price in Area 2 of Jefferson County, which covers the Highlands and Germantown, was $150,000, which compared pretty well with 2007's median sales (0 comments)
