Louisville Beats Nation in Home Sales

If you’ve been anywhere near a TV, radio or magazine (and who hasn’t?) then you’ve probably heard how “down” the real estate market is, right? To be exact, sales nationally fell 3.8% in June. Ouch. That’s a quite hit.

But, what about home sales here in Louisville?

Joe Simms, president of the Greater Louisville Association of Realtors, said yesterday that from January through June, 229 more property sales closed in the area, representing a 3.1 percent increase.

That’s not too shabby. And by comparison is downright beautiful!

Now, not every homeowner is experiencing the rewarding sensation of a house sold, after all there are 10,711 listings on our MLS right now. But take solace in the knowledge that Louisville is doing better than other parts of the country. Remember, every house sells. It’s only a matter of time.
