Sellers who are “upside down” often try to sell their house by themselves through various FSBO methods.

But this year I know some property owners who can't give theirs away. This should help the local economy to keep some prices down. A barrel of oil closed yesterday at $118 and gasoline is at $3.65 in Shelbyville today.  The time for buying from the local farmers is here! We should all consider going to the local farmers market instead of the grocery giants.

Thanks to the warmer weather the market is moving. Signs are going up and so are the buyer's interest.  Shelby county Ky has cheaper fuel prices than all other areas near Louisville, $3.19 a gallon. That sounds so ridiculous since it was a dollar chaeper last year. Where or where does the extra money go? Buying in Simpsonville is a benefit for fuel prices if you drive slower.  Not too many people are slowing down even with the high fuel prices, has anyone else noticed this?Adam BordersKW East
