louisville kentucky real estate houseThis week's statistics are in from the REALTOR Direct Newsletter. Here's how they shape up:
LISTINGS:Residential (Single Family & Condo)
Sept. 24 – 30679

Last year318
As you can see, relative to last year, listings are up and sales are down. This would indicate a softening of the real estate market, and a strengthening of the buyer's market that is already there.

The primary water source is a lake known as Guist Creek and persons have voiced concerns over taste and odor. The Shelbyville Municipal Water Company has been doing their testing regularly, and results for bacteria has been coming back negative.

louisville buyers agentsBuy Louisville KY real estate NOW! There. I’ve said it. I can’t be more blunt or urgent in my recommendation.

homes for sale shelbyville kyIts like I’ve said, you can find everything from Opera & the orchestra all the way to tractor pulls in the Louisville KY metro area.

That being said, its Tractor Pull time!!

At the Shelby County Fairgrounds in Shelbyville Kentucky, there is going to be a Tractor Pull September 29, 2007.  Its a Diesel Hot Rod Association sanctioned event.  You should be able to see a lot of local competitors in the event as well as some pros that are on the tour.

real estate louisville kyThe Federal Reserve cut interest rates much more sharply than expected. Most analysts believed 1/4 point was the most likely avenue for them to move – but in a stunning shocker, they cut it a full 1/2 point. The benchmark interest rate plunged from 5.25 to 4.75 percent.

The move was made to help buoy up the lagging housing market in many parts of the country as a result of over valuation and the subprime lending market that has been taking a beating, and to help stimulate the economy. The stock market moved up 335 points as a result of the news.

So, what does that mean to persons interested in Louisville KY Real Estate? Remember, Alan Greenspan just announecd his prediction that in a few short years, that interest rates will have reached double…
