Key Points


  1. Home sales have definitely picked-up in this area of Louisville.  Through the first 3 months of the year, the number of homes sold was off by 40%.  That number is down to 8% now.  We are seeing the trickle-up effects of existing homeowners being able to trade-up once first time home buyers jump into the market.  The $8000 tax credit is certainly making a difference.    
  2. For sellers, this is an indication that you can sell your Louisville home if you have a Louisville real estate agent who understands how to help you prepare, price, and promote your home.
  3. Buyers should take note that selection is great.  As word spreads that buyers are actually taking advantage of the low interest rates, tax credits, etc, more sellers are putting their homes on the market.  If you want to live in this part of Louisville, you should certainly be able to find a home that meets your needs.  When you find a home that you really want, make a strong offer based on a comparative market analysis.  Homes are selling 3-5% below list price.  Low-balling someone with an offer of 90% or worse may well cost you the home.
