House Hunting in Winter? YES!

House Hunting in Winter?  YES!

It’s cold, the wind is blowing and maybe there are snowflakes or two. It’s sooooo easy to just hibernate inside. But, if you are considering buying a house in the next few months, NOW is the best time to go.

House hunting in winter, Louisville Realtor Bruce Moore

Why?? Well, most people are focused on the Holidays or just don’t want to venture outside in the cold (just like you). That means you can pretty much have your pick of available houses! And, if you are looking to buy a house in hot neighborhoods like the Highlands, St. Matthews or Nulu in Louisville, this could mean the difference between you getting that house and losing out.

So come on! Let’s go house hunting in Winter and find you the perfect home.

Are Real Estate Agents Salesmen or Consultants?

Are Real Estate Agents Salesmen or Consultants?

I stopped by Kingsley Meats in Louisville last night to pick up some seafood for dinner and noticed a table set up with a young gentleman sitting behind it who was asking people as they walked in the door if they would like to fill out a form to win a $100 Gift Certificate, no obligation.

I said, sure why not!   While I was filling out the form, he started a very canned sales presentation that included the dreaded “one answer trap” question that I hate so much.   You know, when a salesman asks you a question that there is only one answer for like “Do you like to save money”?   The question is not only a trap but it is also super insulting in my opinion.

I just glared at him and he went on with his sales pitch (This one was for the Louisville Courier Journal newspaper) and I cringed as I filled out the form because he continued asking more of these types of questions.  Eventually I walked away and felt like I had just been conned.

I noticed that other people’s reaction was the same way as he hit them up with the same sort of canned presentation.   I watched and listened and noticed how people walking in the store were in a good mood but their mood turned sour after having to listen to him.

How is this related to Real Estate Sales?    Well it is not really.  Except that many Realtors use this tactic to gain new clients.  Realtors should be your consultant working alongside you to make sure you make good sound decisions based on professional knowledge.  Sure, real estate agents have to make commissions but not based on forced sales.

After all, as a Realtor, I am hoping to  eventually sell that house you are buying so I have a vested interest in your happiness with my services.

Which Home Remodels Give You the Most Value?

This is a great graphic showing the value of various home remodeling projects. Interestingly, replacing the front door and adding a deck to your house give you the greatest return on your investment.

Prepare your house for winter!

Like it or not, winter is coming. Is your house ready?  There are some simple things you can do to prepare for a more comfortable and affordable cold season.

Have your chimney cleaned – Very important! A dirty chimney is not only inefficient, it can be a major fire hazard.

Prepare your house for winter, Bruce Moore Realtor

Check the furnace – All furnaces should be cleaned and inspected once a year by a professional. A clean furnace is more efficient not to mention safe.

Seal the windows and doors –  Keep the cold air out by sealing all doors and windows with weatherstripping.

Use your blinds – They’re not just for decoration, you know. When the sun shines on your windows, raise the blinds. Lower them after dark to keep the warmer air in.

Reverse your ceiling fans – Warm air rises so setting your blades to push the air down will make a room feel more comfortable.

Just a few things you can do to save money and be more comfortable in your home this year.

15 Ways to Prepare Your House for Winter

How to Prepare you House for Winter

Should you buy a Condo?

Most people think of a condo as a patio home or an apartment. In reality, however, a condo can take any physical form. The term ‘condominium’ refers to a type of ownership, not the building. That being said, a condo can actually be a house. Confused yet?

Condo, Louisville Realtor Bruce Moore
When you buy a single family house, you own the property, the building, the whole shebang.  Something breaks, you have to fix it.

With a condo, what you own and control varies according to the condominium rules. Generally, you own from the outside walls in. Which means, you are usually free to change the paint and carpet inside your unit but you cannot paint the outside of the building. The flip-side of that is that you also are not responsible for fixing the roof if it leaks.

Most condominium complexes charge a monthly maintenance fee. This is what pays for the roof leak and also repair and maintenance of the common areas which can include anything from a swimming pool to a park and sidewalks.

So, if you prefer to skip mowing the lawn and repairing the driveway, condo ownership may be right for you. Just make sure to read the bylaws very carefully to see what rights you have.

Home buyers willing to pay more than asking price?

Have ya heard?  According to an Inman News article, home buyers are now willing to pay more than the house’s asking price. That’s great news if you’re in the market to buy a house!

What’s more, “1 in 4 buyers would pay seller’s closing costs”.

Sell a home,Louisville Realtor, Bruce Moore

The reason?  People are ready and willing to buy a house but the inventory of available houses is still very low. There simply are not as many homes for sale as there are buyers.

What does this mean for you?  If you’ve been thinking about selling your house, now is the perfect time! The combination of still-low mortgage rates, fewer homes on the market and more buyers out there ready to buy means a faster sale and higher price for you!

Call me to sell your home quickly!
