I didn’t see that coming! Jefferson County home sales up 9% in October? Are you kidding me?
After a year where sales trailed the previous year, it was expected to follow through into the Holidays. But Louisville home buyers weren’t having any of that.
There were 905 homes sold in Louisville during October 2014 compared to just 830 a year ago. That’s good for a 9.04% improvement, the biggest of the year!
Following are the stats for each month of the past two years.
Jefferson County Home Sales
2013 2014 Jan 589 540 Feb 581 579 Mar 757 709 Apr 920 815 May 1022 934 Jun 1009 1073 Jul 1060 1020 Aug 1128 1143 Sep 964 854 Oct 830 905
So maybe 2014 won’t turn out as down as previously thought. There’s simply no way for us to catch the complete total for 2013 of 10,409 where we sit at 8,572. We’d have to average 918 homes sold during the final two months of the year to pull that out.
But after the first five months of the year, this outcome is much better than expected.
