Greater Louisville

The Months of Inventory is 17.1% lower than this time last year. This is the amount of time it would take to sell all the properties that are currently listed in the area. On June 24, 2012, it would have taken approximately 7.0 months to sell every listed property in the area; on June 23, 2013 it was recorded to only take 5.8 months.

The amount of Unsold Residential Inventory is also down 11.5% from last year. As of June, 23 2013 there were 6,794 residential homes listed for sale in the Greater Louisville area. This time last year there were 7,679. This gives buyers less to choose from and become more competitive with each other to get the home they want.

On average homes are selling for prices 7.7% higher than last year, and it less time – 19 days less than in 2012.

Average Sales Price – 2012: $181,173 vs. 2013: $195,150
