Home Buying in Louisville sign

I see many new Louisville home buyers get overwhelmed - and sidetracked - by the sight of their dream home. This high-energy excitement sometimes takes the wheel. While everything may look great on a surface level, below are a few important things to consider before making an offer on a Louisville home.

  1. Could you shovel that driveway multiple times each Louisville winter?
  2. Do the rooms feel and look well-insulated?
  3. Have you double checked the home inspection?
  4. How noisy does it sound in the yard?
  5. Have any new renovations been made to potentially hide a bigger problem?
  6. Are the schools in the area rated well? Check out Louisville’s schools here. http://www.greatschools.org/kentucky/louisville/
  7. Are the appliances semi-updated?
  8. Would the new commute to work be less than 30 minutes wherever you are in Louisville?
  9. Have you checked http://www.familywatchdog.us/showmap.asp for any possible nearby sex offenders?
  10. Have you calculated your mortgage, closing costs, average monthly utilities, property tax, and homeowners insurance?
