Why winter is a good time to find houses for sale in Southern Indiana, Northern Kentucky, and Louisville Ky

I was talking with a home buyer today about why winter is a good time to find houses for sale in Southern Indiana, Northern Kentucky, and Louisville Ky real estate markets. And I thought I'd share those reasons with you today. The biggest reason to shop for a home for sale in Louisville or across the river in Southern Indiana or up the road in Northern Kentucky is the lack of competition from other home buyers. In Louisville Kentucky, about half as many houses sold in the winter months compared to the number of homes sold in the summer months on average over the past five years. In a typical real estate market year, about 1200 houses sell in the summer months, and 600 houses sell in the winter months in Louisville. The market is similar for Southern Indiana and northern Kentucky real estate.  Why is that important?

Advice to sell your house faster (1) Stage furniture (2) Update paint, carpet, lights (3) lights on, music on, cookies out

If possible, turn on all the lights before each showing and have light jazz music playing. If you are able, try to have the house smelling like baked goods.
