What's new in Louisville Real Estate sales for 2011?

by Bob Sokoler

Louisville area Home owners received a belated holiday gift today. According to a new report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), pending home sales rose 3.5% in November. That's great news and it confirms we're seeing a gradual recovery that should continue into 2011. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist says "If we add 2 million jobs as expected in 2011, and mortgage rates rise only moderately, we should see existing-home sales rise to a higher, sustainable volume. So more good news for 2011. As for Louisville Home prices, The new Federal Reserve report shows Louisville housing prices have actually notched up .46 percent in many areas of Louisville. The nation media and some local media outlets continue to report the gloom and doom for many cities around the United Stated, but if you read past the headlines the information is more positive for Louisville Real Estate Sales. Read thought the Federal Reserve report to look at the actual numbers for Louisville. As for 2011 we think it's going to be a good year to buy and even sell Louisville Real Estate. Look at our video above to see what we're planning to do for our listings in 2011. We hope you enjoy our blogs we love creating them for you!

Who is Louisville's best builder? by Bob Sokoler

by Bob Sokoler

Who is Ed Devore and why is his company “MD Customs Homes” one of Louisville’s most successful builders? Simple it’s his attention to details, low prices, integrity and willingness to make the customer happy. Let’s face it when it comes to building a home there are a lot of builders out there but only a handful worth using. I can personally tell you that it’s a joy working with Louisville Builders like Rocky & Joe Pusateri of “Elite Homes”, Phillip Hill Homes, Ball Homes and Ed Devore of MD Custom Homes. As a Louisville Realtor who sells more than 100 pieces of Louisville Real Estate, I’ve seen the good and bad in builders. There is only one thing better than seeing the smile on the face of a new home owner, that’s seeing that same smile 5 or 10 years later still proud of the home build by a good Louisville Builder. What I love about Ed Devore and builders like him… they get “it”. By that I mean understanding that when a person makes an investment in a home they want to have confidence that the builder will stand behind their work year after year. Watch our video about Ed Devore and we think you’ll agree that when it comes to building a Louisville Home, Ed is the type of guy you want calling the shots. We hope you enjoy our blogs we love creating them for you!
