August 2011 Louisville Home Sale numbers – Best in 4 years

Louisville Home Owners can slowly start to breath a collective sigh of relief! It’s very possible the downhill slide of falling Louisville home prices has hit bottom. It now appears Louisville Home Buyers are starting to jump off the fence and into a realtor’s car looking at homes (sure glad I tanked up with gas)! You have to go back to August 2007 to see more homes sold in the month of August! For skeptics among you I’ve included the raw data for the past 4 years of August. That’s good news for Louisville homeowners who have their homes on…

It’s in the cloud.. .really!

Get ready for things to change again! You may remember the last time it happened! Apple had just introduced the ipad and for many a newspaper or magazine was too simple. Now get ready for icloud., Apple reviled details of iCloud today. What is it? Well simply put, imagine being able to get on your home or work computer from anywhere in the world. It’s really as simple as that. The information that’s normally stored on your hard drive (documents, pictures, music, books, backups, calendars, etc.), will be accessible from anywhere. Many of us have already been using a form…

Selling Louisville Real Estate gets a little tougher!

Louisville home sale numbers from April 2011 compared to April 2010 are down 17% and homes going under contract are down 44%. But don’t let the numbers fool you; remember tax credits last year artificially accelerated home sales. This year we’re looking at terrible weather, rising gas prices and an economy that still hasn’t stabilized. Yet despite the numbers, mother nature and uncertainty, homes are still going under contract and being sold. There are more people out now looking for homes than in past months but they are looking for bargains and are not afraid to wait until they find…

Louisville Kentucky home sales numbers update

New Louisville Kentucky home sales numbers for March 2011 show some promising signs. The number of homes sold last month was down 10% from March 2011. Ok, you may be saying “down 10%… that’s promising”? Heck yes… remember March 2010 saw large numbers of first time and move up home buyers in the market skewing home sales up for the first 6 months of 2010. The number of homes going under contract was also positive for home sellers. Even with snow, cold temperatures and rain for a majority of March home buyers were still out looking at homes and asking…

From our “You’ve got to be kidding” department

Did you know there was a magazine indexing iPhone apps? Oh yes just what you may have been waiting to see! 947 apps all under one cover for the one low price of $19.99. Wait Nineteen dollars and ninety-nine cents? Are they kidding? The cost of 20 of those iPhone apps? Has anyone at the publishing company heard of the Internet? Remember Google? One click and hundreds of apps. Yet this magazine has already had 5 editions and appears to be raking in the bucks…but who is buying these magazines?

Tonight was anything BUT a good night for the Fox network.

How do you screw up an internationally televised concert? Ask Fox or the producers of this year’s Super Bowl! Maybe it was just my TV or my house, but did anyone else hear the atrocious audio mix called the half time show on Fox tonight? Someone owes the BlackEyedPeas and their fans an apology! Sure it’s no easy task coordinating a concert in the middle of the Super Bowl, but you would think someone would have rehearsed, set levels and set memory points on the mixers. Maybe I’m just making something out of nothing but “Tonight’s going to be a…

Can you believe it… Positive News for Louisville Home Sales!

Tonight there is some encouraging news for Louisville homeowners. New Louisville home sales numbers for January 2011 show the number of homes going under contract up some 14% over January of 2010. Not impressed, oh but you should be. Remember we had a first time and a move up buyers tax credit in effect last year. Add to that January weather was terrible! I can personally tell you it’s no fun slipping and sliding into and out of driveways and walkways. So 14% is a respectable number for homes going under contract. The rest of the news for Louisville homeowners…

All You Can Eat Lobster….I’m there!!!

One of my favorite foods in the entire world is Lobster! I can just about eat my weight in the Crustaceans in one sitting. I’ve even mastered a unique way to get the meat out of a tail without having to do any cutting. So combine an all you can eat lobster event with a fundraiser for one of my favorite Louisville organizations, Actors Theater, and you have a win – win! That’s the background and why I’m thrilled this Saturday is the annual 2011 Lobster Feast. This year the theme is Pop Goes The Sixties and so we’ve been…
