It is finally that time to make the big move. After living in a home for many years, this may be an even bigger move. It is important to take the time and carefully prepare your home for the local market so it will sell fast and for more money. There is a lot that goes into getting a home ready to sell.

Follow these five quick tips to help achieve your Louisville real estate goals:


1. Price Below Market Value

Listing your home below market value by 5-10% may not sound like a sure way to sell your home for more, but this can be highly effective! Drive in more buyers and create an urgency to active buyers who know the market. Doing so, can increase the odds of countless showings and hopefully a bidding war of multiple offers.


2. Brighten Up the Home

When listing a home for sale in Louisville, we always recommend to our clients to make sure they bring in as much light as possible. Clean the inside and outside of all the windows and always open up all blinds before any showing. Also, make sure there are no burnt out light bulbs.


3 Declutter & Depersonalize 

Take down portraits/picture frames, trophies, awards and pack them away. Also, go through closets and start packing clothes that are out of season. It is a good idea to get at least half of your belongings out of the closets so there is not any clutter.


4. Landscaping

Freshen up the front of your home by investing a little time and money into the front of your house. Focusing on the landscaping is highly recommended and can always make a big difference through the spring and summer months.

5. Paint

Don't let the color of your walls be the focal point of a room. Chances are you have a painted the rooms in your house many times. Depending on the current color of the walls, you may want to think about re-painting. Neutral colors are highly recommended when it comes to selling a home. It is easier for a buyer to focus on the true features of the home and picture their own belonging in the home.
