A Lack Of Inventory Greets The New Year
Louisville's home inventory dropped again in January to 3,475 active listings or a 2.3 month supply of homes. The average sale price of $215,000 was up 10% as competition for entry-level homes continued. Days on the market increased slightly to 65 days, and the number of homes sold was flat on persistent short supply.
The GLAR President commented that, "2017 turned out to be a year of continued low inventory for starter homes and normalizing conditions for mid-priced and higher end homes. We will likely see 30 year mortgage rates move towards 5%, but that should not have a big impact on affordability for buyers in the greater Louisville area."
