Jefferson County home sales continue to impress! Looks like early markers weren’t kidding around.
Home sales were higher in each of the past 4 months year-over-year and it appears this trend will continue into the Spring.
During March, 805 homes were sold in Jefferson County, up 12.6% over the 715 homes sold in March 2014.
Most Louisville MLS areas are improving. Quantity count is greatest in the largest areas, but what’s interesting is how much one area jumped in 2015 while the others grew only slightly or dipped a bit.
Which area? Why it’s which makes sense so areas Area 8: Middletown, Hurstbourne, Douglass Hills and part of Anchorage!
Check out this new chart I’m unveiling today. I hope to make it a staple of this monthly piece for Louisville Homes Blog. (If I forget, just let me know.)
So Areas 5 and 6 both were lower this year but Area 8 more than made up the difference.
So now, let’s look back and see how Jefferson County home sales this March, compared to previous years.
Jefferson County Home Sales in March
2005 997 2006 991 2007 949 2008 725 2009 579 2010 694 2011 648 2012 681 2013 757 2014 715 2015 805
Since the housing recession ended, we are moving higher, yet still not up to the pre-recession levels, at least for the month of March. Other months have performed better but as long as I see improvement, I will take heart that Louisville real estate is in good shape.
