Hamburg Dream Home at the Homeplace 

St. Jude’s 2022 Dream Home is once again located in Hamburg for 2022. 

Located on Buttermilk Rd, this year’s home features  3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,600 estimated square ft., vaulted ceilings with wood details in primary bedroom, open concept first floors with hardwood floors throughout, and a gourmet kitchen. 

The Home Place has become one of the Hamburg area’s favorite subdivisions, with ranch-style homes and 2-story houses, featuring proximity to local stores, excellent schools, and the interstate.

Tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays through October 9, and the 2022 giveaway is scheduled for Oct 13. 

The first St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway was held in Shreveport, LA, organized by Dr. Donald Mack, a pediatric physician from Shreveport. Mack had relied on St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to treat young patients with catastrophic diseases and was the first doctor to send an out-of-state patient to St. Jude.

St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis is an internationally recognized Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases have ranked it as one of the best pediatric cancer hospitals in the country. 

Market Cooling? 

Home sales were down 14 percent in August from a year ago as sales topped out at 1,419 in 2022 compared to 1,646 in August 2021.

Rusty Underwood, president of Bluegrass Realtors® says  “After two unprecedented years in real estate where prices and appreciation exploded, some buyers hit pause in their home search as a result of increasing rates, inflation and decreased purchasing power.”

Despite the slowdown in transactions, median prices still rose in August. Prices jumped to a new all-time monthly high reaching $249,900, up 11 percent over last year when the median was $225,000, and coming in at the third highest month ever behind June and July of this year. Single-family home prices increased 8 percent to $250,000 while townhouse/condo prices jumped 17 percent, reaching $210,000.
