Home Prices

Are Home Prices Dropping in Louisville? Statistically, we see home prices decrease during the fall and winter months. We saw home prices peak in July at $275,000. Currently, for October, the median sale price was $255,000.

Housing Inventory

What is Happening in the Market?  Looking at the statistics further from the Greater Louisville MLS, cthe data shows that homes continue to sell quickly at 36 days on market. However, this is slightly up compared to last year when the average DOM was 31. There are still a lot of questions about how the real estate market will look going into the winter months. For the first time in 10+ years, we didn't see growth in the median sale price when compared to the prior year. The median sale price fell even to last October (2022) at $255,000.

Showing Activity

Activity and showings overall for the year is slightly up from last year. The most recent report shows an +0.7% increase in showings compared to this time last year. Statistically, we see spring and summer as strong months for Buyer activity, so it is no surprise to see activity decrease into the winter months. The 12-month average is up 0.7%.
