It's a mixed bag for Louisville Home Buyers and Sellers

Louisville Real EstateThe new numbers for Louisville Home Sales from the Greater Louisville
Association of Realtors points to an interesting mixed bag of results!
The number of homes sold (and closed) for the month of November
increased more than 15 % over the same month a year ago. But, the number of homes
going under contract were almost the same as a year ago.  On the surface
that may indicate a slowing in home sales momentum generated this year
by a recovering economy,  but look a little closer and you'll see at
least 5 other factors contributing to numbers.

1) November was an election month where much of the attention of many Americans was
focused on who would be in charge of this country over the next 4 years.

2) Talk of the fiscal cliff has home buyers, sellers and even  renters wondering what the next few weeks let alone the next 4 years will look like.

3) Talk of lower interest rates in the next few months (below 3 percent) has been building steam.

4) Concern over income tax hikes when the current tax laws expire also have home buyers concerned over less spendable income.   

Sellers have already come down in price and less willing to make
repairs along with fewer homes on the market than in past years making
selection harder.

A lot of the concern over the economy will
hopefully go away this month if our elected leaders can put self
interests aside and address concerns. If that happens we're already
seeing signs of a good 2013 for home sellers and buyers.

1)  The number of days on the market has dropped from 86 in November 2011 to 80 last month.   

2) Most experts agree that interest rates will remain low for...
