Home Construction For Sale Bea Metts

It’s no secret that Louisville has a booming housing market. Record sales in 2016 have continued into this year.

Many experts had anticipated a downturn or correction in the market due to low inventory but, surprisingly, numbers have stayed about the same while prices have increased due to demand. Since this time last year, the price for a new home have gone up approximately 4.8 percent. While this is not a huge increase, it is evidence that the demand for new housing is still present. Many homeowners are reluctant to sell their home at this time because finding a new home that meets their requirements and budget is so difficult in this climate. It truly is a seller’s market.
