Looking at the statistics further from the Greater Louisville MLS, compared to August 2020, the data shows that homes continue to sell at a fast pace. There is still some uncertainty about how the real estate market will be affected long term. However, with the median sale price up 2.2% compared to last year and the average days on market is down -46.4%. Things are still looking pretty good for the Louisville real estate market.

Homes on average right now are selling within 15 days on market. Over the years we have seen a great increase in home prices around the Louisville area. Right now may still be a great time for homeowners that are thinking about selling because of the continued lack of listings but it looks like that could be shifting soon. The only question is when and how soon?
