Louisville Has Too Many Realtors

It’s been a blessing to be asked to appear on our local news stations over the years. Today was another such day. We covered several topics including the historically low number of listings and how there are too many Realtors for that low amount.

Here’s a screenshot of me appearing on the NBC local affiliate Wave3 news to talk about local real estate.

Today’s topic was the disturbingly low level of housing inventory in our market. It’s so low that it’s clear many real estate agents will be out of a job before year’s end.

Here’s an excerpt from the Wave3 news story quoting me. They called it: Too Many Realtors, Not Enough Houses.

“Because the variables are the way they are, inventory is so incredibly low, that the Realtors themselves, the real estate professionals, are having a very hard time staying in business,” Louisville realtor Tre Pryor, the editor of Louisville Homes Blog, said. “I would wager a large group of Realtors is going to go out of business this year.”

Given the cyclical nature of things, this situation should improve itself if free markets are allowed to function. The question is just how long will it take for things to return to “normal.”

I’ve also kept links for past interviews if you’re interested. And like always, if you have any questions about Louisville’s local real estate market, please contact me. I’m always happy to help!
