Louisville Housing Market Report 2020

Looking at the statistics further from the Greater Louisville MLS, compared to October 2019, the data shows that homes continue to sell at a fast pace. There is still a lot of uncertainty about how the real estate market will be affected long term. However, with the median sale price up 12.29% compared to last year and the average days on market is down 5.7%. Things are still looking pretty good for the Louisville real estate market. 


October 2020 Louisville Housing Statistics

  • Median Sale Price: $216,500 (Up +12.29% from October 2019)
  • List To Sale Price Ratio: 98.51% (Up +0.20% from October 2019)
  • Days on the Market: 23 Days (Down -5.7% from October 2019)
  • Total Sold Listings: 1,201 (Up +7.1% October 2019)

Homes on average right now are selling within 23 days on market. Over the years we have seen a great increase in home prices around the Louisville area. Right now may still 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?
