What To Look For in a Realtor

Ready to find a realtor in Louisville? Here are 4 simple tips to finding the realtor that can help you find your dream home.

1) Good Chemistry is magic! You'll be spending a lot of time with your realtor, discussing finances, as well as your family's wants and needs. You need to feel comfortable with this person. Trust your instinct.

2) Examine your needs. Whether you're buying or selling, you don't need the "top" realtor, but you need to find one that has expertise in area you need.

3) Proven track record and credentials. Check professional credentials, talk to past clients, and select a realtor that understands mortgages and the Louisville neighborhoods you're interested in.

4) Customer service. Make sure your realtor has a track record of great service for their clients. Price is nice, but you should also have a great experience with the realtor you choose.

Showing Your Home to Sell in Louisville

It's been your Louisville home for years. It was your first home, maybe you raised your kids there, and the memories are in every corner of the house. But now it's time to sell it and move on to your next home. How do you do it?

The first thing to remember is that the first impression a buyer has of your home is the most important. So, you'll want to make sure that the house is prepped:

  • Make sure the front entrance is clean
  • Is the front door faded? Maybe it needs painted...or replaced.
  • Clean and paint any trim or shutters that may need refreshing

Take a look at your home from the buyer's point of view...

  • Are the windows and floor clean?
  • Replace any faded wallpaper
  • Repair worn woodwork
  • Steam clean the carpet
  • Repair loose knobs, latches, broken light switches, and other minor repairs
  • How does the caulking look in the bathroom and kitchen?
