Louisville Kentucky Home - What Exactly Is A Single Family Home?

By Family Realty, LLC

So you’re planning on buying your first Louisville Kentucky Home and are considering purchasing a single family home.

Although single family homes and townhomes are both referred to as homes, the reality is that a true single family home is a property that is detached from other homes, doesn’t share any space or common areas, and many times a single family home will sit on more land.

Single Family Home Advantages

When you purchase a single family home you will enjoy several advantages including the following:

  • More space inside the home.
  • Privacy – You won’t have to share your walls with neighbors.
  • More lot space – Your family will enjoy a larger front and back yard than you would if you purchase a condo or townhome.
  • Extra parking space – As the owner of a single family home you will have more space for parking your vehicles, boat, RV or other recreational vehicles.

How To Get Started With Buying A Single Family Home

To get started with buying a Louisville Kentucky Home do the following:

  1. Define the home you want – Talk with your spouse or partner and define the exact home you’re searching for including: bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, location and school district.
  2. Check your credit score – Pull your 3-in-1 credit score to verify it’s accuracy and remove any negative items from any of your three credit reports.
  3. Get pre-approved for a mortgage loan – Contact your local mortgage broker or lender to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan.
  4. Hire a qualified Louisville Realtor – Interview at least 3 Realtor’s in Louisville so you can hire someone who is experienced buying local Real Estate.
  5. Start searching for homes in Louisville – Besides searching for homes in Louisville you should also be ready to act fast when your agent alerts you that new listings have become available because they could go quickly
