The nationally accepted scale is as follows: six month supply or more is a buyers market, a 5 to 6 month supply of homes is a neutral market anything under of five months supply is said to be a sellers market. The current absorption rate for the Louisville area is a 3.36 month supply, a firm sellers market! In fact just a year ago we were talking about a firm sellers market and the absorption rate was a 4.82 month supply of homes.

What does this mean to you? Let's start with sellers, if you are considering putting your home on the market this year now is the time to do it. Typically you'll get more money and sell faster if you're on the market sooner than later this year. Naturally you have to be concerned about finding your next...
