The most expensive homes sold in Jefferson County (June 22-28)

Kentucky is among the states that spend the least on home improvements.

That’s according to a recent study conducted by Contractor Growth Network, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based company that offers digital marketing for contractors. The study analyzed home improvement expenditures compared to the median household income across every state, as reported in the Consensus Business Builder between December 2021 to December 2022.

The Bluegrass State was No. 6 on the list of states that spend the least. The commonwealth, with a total population of 4.5 million, has a median household income of $55,454, and each household spends $2,845 on home improvements, totaling 5.1% of the median household income.

And while states like Kentucky, New Mexico, Arkansas, West Virginia and Mississippi aren’t spending as much — the home improvement market is expected to grow. Home improvement market sales totaled $558.3 billion in 2022 and it’s projected to reach $621.3 billion by 2025, Contractor Growth Network said.

Renovations are certainly something people consider when planning to list their homes. In our latest most expensive home sales list, a few of the properties have seen significant updates, as is visible in historical photos on the Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator’s website. Of course, there’s a couple of newer construction homes, too.

As always, we’re only considering single-family homes in this gallery. In order to ensure an apples-to-apples comparison, I left off vacant lot sales, multi-home purchases, apartment complexes and duplexes.
