Louisville Home Sales in April Skyrocket


Louisville has more than the Kentucky Derby to celebrate on this first Saturday in May! Louisville home sales jumped through the roof in April 2013 compared to one year before and skyrocketed to the moon when compared to April 2011.

As of the beginning of May we have...
