Buying or Selling Louisville Real Estate? Use This Checklist
LOUISVILLE, KY – It doesn’t matter if you plan on buying or selling Louisville Real Estate, using a checklist is the key to success in insuring that you are able to accomplish your goals.
In today’s post we will provide you with a simple checklist that you can use to successfully buy or sell Louisville Real Estate.
- Verify your credit – Get a 3-in-1 credit report online to make sure that you don’t have any inaccurate or negative items on your credit report.
- Pay down your old debts – Before buying a home it’s best to pay down old debts like: credit cards, student loans or non-secure debts because this will also lower your debt-to-income ratio and help you to get a better mortgage loan.
- Contact a lender – Contact at least five lenders or mortgage brokers so you can get the best mortgage interest rate for a loan.
- Develop home search criteria – Think about what you are searching for in a home including: location, bedrooms, bathrooms and square footage since this will help your agent find the right home for you.
- Connect with an agent – Last of all, but most important, contact the Family Realty team today to start searching for homes in Louisville and the surrounding area.
Clean - Take the time to clean your home thoroughly from top to bottom, or have it professionally cleaned, because, a dirty home may cause buyers to wonder what else might be wrong with your home.
De-clutter – Go through each room in your home and remove the clutter or items which you have accumulated over the years but may not be currently using now. If you have children it’s best to invest in totes or baskets so you can easily clear their toys or personal affects at a moment’s notice before showing your home.
Stage – Once your home is clean and de-cluttered you should then stage each room in your home with minimal pieces of furniture or personal affects to emphasize the size of your home and remove your personal stamp from your house.
