Louisville Home Sales Start strong for 2012

Yea, Yea, Yea you may say it’s too early to tell if the housing market has really recovered. I’ll put my neck on the line out right now and tell you the worst of the home sale slump is behind us. Unless there’s a major shift in consumer interest in homes because of some future unknown event Louisville home sales in 2012 are back on track for much of our area. Here’s why: Home sales for January 2012 are up 12.5% over a year ago. The number of homes going under contract are up 14.2% over January of last year as well. The median home sales price remained constant at $125,000 between the same 2 months. The number of homes on the market as of February 1, 2012 as of this writing was 7,550. That’s one of the lowest numbers in years. Additionally we are watching buyer activity online reaching new records. Specifically we’re seeing more people return to home sale websites than ever before. Our phones are ringing off the hook and we sold 18 homes in January a month that in past years averaged 6-8 homes sold. We finished 2011 far ahead of what we had anticipated selling 130 homes and making us the number 1 full service realtor in Louisville for total volume. We re so busy we’ve added 4 agents to our team to handle the requests for showings of our homes.Add everything up and the forecast for Louisville Home Sales in 2012 is good. If you’re a buyer now is the time to contact us to target your search and get out with us to see homes. For Sellers, it’s time to call to set an appointment with us to review a CMA, stage your home and get it listed.
