Big month in a few areas, particularly Areas 7, 8, 20 and 21. To generalize the month, sales were about on par with March 2011 and home prices were mixed depending on area. No big real estate recovery, not just yet.

Monthly Reports: Period Ending March 2012
After looking at the data, it appears to me that some of it was entered for the wrong period. Unfortunately, the system is reliant upon Realtors timely service and I would wager that some was misplaced. In any event, values move up but overall still trending downward. Sales in this area were down for the month compared to last year.
Finally a strong month for this area with home values moving the trend upward after months of stead decline. Couple this with 8 straight months of beating the previous year, it appears that Area 7 might be turning the corner.
HUGE sales month in Area 21. I dug deeper to see if I could find the reason behind it but the homes sold are all over the board: different neighborhoods, price ranges, ages, etc. I just looks like people are loving Oldham County! Prices hold steady despite big jump in sales.
