in Central Kentucky for September 2010 fell 35%, while the National
Association of REALTORS® posted a 19% decrease in sales for the nation.
Central Kentucky real estate market statistics for the prior three
months are very similar, as we are still seeing the effects of the end
of the homebuyer tax credit earlier this year.
In spite of this, sales in the Bluegrass for the first nine months of
2010 are only down 1% compared to the same time period in 2009.
More importantly, however, is the fact that median sales prices for Bluegrass homes rose 4% for September 2010 versus September 2009.
This figure dropped 2.4% for the U.S. as a whole for the same time
period. Milestone Realty Consultants Principal Broker Judy Craft says,
“This once again illustrates that even though sales are slowing, Central
Kentucky home prices and values remain very stable.”
Pending sales dropped 36% in September 2010 vs. September 2009.
The active number of listings or inventory on the market for Central
Kentucky in September was 6,897 which is up 11% compared to September
