Message from David Hittle, Realtor United Real Estate Louisville:

Another week has passed and ever closer to the end of the this year. It has been a doozy for sure! However it has been a great year for Real Estate and if you keep up with the information I provide you daily, and weekly, you know that!

This Monday I will be listing a new investment property. It is in the Iroquois Park Neighborhood, tucked away on a quiet street. It will list for $74,900 but has an AVM of $162,000. For the right investor this home may turn into a gold mine of opportunity!

I hope that you enjoy my newsletters, remember one will not be sent next week as I will be out of the office and out of the state. Taking a little time to recoup from this wild year, you can still visit my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/shopkentuckyhomes for the daily updates you are used to.

Looking to Buy a Brand New Home? I would love to set up an appointment with my favorite builder for you! Why spend the money on an older home, with its issues, and its problems when you could buy a brand new, customizable home, and receive a 1 year home warranty, a 7 year structural warranty, and the peace of mind, knowing that when you sell that home, it is a 2020 built home! Give me a Call Today: 502-489-1135

This week the Mortgage Interest Rates as published by Freddie Mac jumped to 2.84%, up six-tenths of a point from last week’s 2.78%, but better than last year’s 3.75%. 2.78% was the 12th record low interest rate this year and is the lowest ever seen since recording started back in 1971. If you are paying more than 4% on your mortgage, contact me today! A refinance may be the way to go for you, if you plan to stay in your home for a while.

 

This week in Louisville and Lexington Kentucky there were 3,932 (+15) homes & condos for sale, with the average days on market sitting at 38.80 (+0.3 Days). We are now at 1.58 (-0.04 Months) months of inventory, making this a “Seller’s Market” which is under the six months needed to have a “Balanced Market”. Builder’s Are Starting to Catch Up with Inventory Levels, Slowly But Surely!

 

The Average Sale Price for September 2020 was $261,407 (Down $7,952 from August 2020), with Median Selling Price being $220,000 (Down $5,000 from August 2020). These numbers are up from last year’s $223,942 and $190,975 respectively. As you can see average home sales prices went down from August to September, and, the Median Selling Price also fell by $5,000 between August and September. This is a sign that home prices may be settling out for the year.
