It Remains an Excellent Time to Trade-UpA protracted inventory shortage continues to drive a very strong Spring seller's market for entry-level to mid-priced homes. Higher-end homes are moving more slowly and inventory is returning to historical levels. This makes it a great time to trade-up! Historically low mortgage rates are still providing an added affordability boost.
The Greater Louisville Association of Realtors President noted that, "The local market is still strong despite the fact that the current inventory of homes for sale is roughly 30% compared to 10 years ago. There is very strong competition for starter and move-up homes, and more normal levels of inventory for higher end homes." Overall Louisville area home inventory ticked up slightly in March to 3,475 active listings or a 2.3 month supply of homes. The average sale price of $211,000 was up 8% on continued limited inventory. The number of homes sold accelerated, while average days on the market remained steady.
