Current Market Statistics for Louisville, KY

Here is a look at the current Louisville, KY real estate market statistics, plus a comparison to the same time-frame last year. I used the month of April because most of the pending home sales from April should have posted to the system. It is possible that a number of homes are still pending and will not post for some time.

Looking at the numbers, the pace of selling has slowed slightly, but the average sales price has risen overall. This is not a major market fluctuation. Our challenges in the Louisville market remain an unusually high inventory of unsold homes, plus lenders have tightened underwriting requirements removing a significant amount of capital available to purchase a home.

I recommend all persons interested in buying a home take advantage of this market. Improve your credit score, get professional financial guidance, and save your money. There are numerous viable loan options still on the table for a majority of buyers.
