Louisville Fixer Upper: Fit or Flop?

Ask the right questions before biting the bullet.

by MIKE HALL, Owner/ Broker/ Agent

Louisville Fixer Upper

Louisville homes are a hot commodity these days. While Louisville waits for sellers to list their homes, hungry buyers are left to consider fixer uppers. The following list will help you evaluate whether or not all that elbow grease is really worth it.

Does the selling price account for how much work needs to be done? How tricked out are the homes in the neighborhood? Are they priced similarly? Louisville neighborhood comps are a window into just how much you should be paying. One of our agents would be happy to help you determine the price point.

When you love the bones of the home, it’s easier to imagine it with upgrades. Can you picture this room after you take out that wall? Can you see past the ugly kitchen into your custom chef’s haven?

What would it take to make this house move-in ready? Does it need a little TLC or a full renovation? The home’s price plus the cost of renovation should put you near neighborhood values.

Fixer uppers require flexibility. Can you handle a renovation? Do you want to? Do you plan to live in the house while you renovate? Be honest with yourself about what you can manage.

Purchasing a Louisville fixer upper is a big decision, but you don’t have to do it alone. Contact Red Edge Realty to help run the comps and evaluate the market. We can even recommend a few contractors. Let Red Edge help you find your perfect fit.


Louisville Ranks Among the Top

And the locals already know why

by MIKE HALL, Owner/ Broker/ Agent


Louisville ranked 43rd of the best 100 places to live by U.S. News and World Report. Up from No. 45 last year, Louisville’s low commute time (23.7 minutes), great home values, and low unemployment rate (4.4 percent) sealed its ranking near the top.

Mild seasonal temperatures make Louisville’s attractions even more appealing. No secret to the locals, standouts were Louisville’s art scene, NCAA sporting attractions, and an emphasis on unique local industries including everyone’s favorite — bourbon.
