Today’s piece is the basic Louisville Home Selling Guide—the grand overview. It outlines the basics of selling your home in Louisville and what you need to do to get prepared for it.

1. Why are you selling?

Examine the reasons why you want to sell your Louisville home. You should only put your home up for sale if you are firmly motivated to sell it.

If you have any vague doubts lingering about buying a new home and leaving your existing one, get those worked out first.

2. Look at other home options

If you are selling your Louisville home to move to a new neighborhood, make sure that you have to do your homework first. You may find that the price of moving simply isn’t worth your time or effort.

You may also find that you can’t find another house that you’d like to live in that’s better than the one you are in now. It’s always best to explore all your options before making a final decision one way or another.

3. Select a Louisville Realtor

Talk to a Louisville Realtor that you feel will be able to market your home efficiently and get it sold fast. Selling your home in today’s digital age isn’t the same as it used to be when all the listings were actually in giant books!

4. Prepare your home

If you have decided to list your Louisville home you’ll have to be prepared for the sale. Look for any repairs that need to be done and any outpoints that a potential buyer would see when entering your home.

In most cases, small fix-ups may be necessary to sell your house faster and get a higher price.

5. Get ready for financing

Get in touch with your current lender to learn the exact amount that still needs to be paid off on your home and how much equity it has built up. At that point, you can approach different lenders and look for the best mortgage deal.
