3 Things To Prioritize When Selling Your House


>>Price Your House Right

When inventory is low, like it is in the current market, it’s common to think buyers will pay whatever we ask when setting a listing price, but that’s not always true. Even in a sellers’ market, listing your house for the right price will maximize the number of buyers that see your house. This creates the best environment for bidding wars, which are more likely to increase the final sale price. A real estate professional is the best person to help you set the best price for your house.

>>Keep Your Emotions in Check

Today, homeowners are living in their houses for a longer period of time. Since 1985, the average time a homeowner owned their home, or their tenure, has increased from 5 to 10 years. This is several years longer than what used to be the historical norm.

Where Do Experts Say the Housing Market Is Heading?

As we enter the middle of 2021, many are wondering if we’ll see big changes in the housing market during the second half of this year. Here’s a look at what some experts have to say about key factors that will drive the industry and the economy forward in the months to come.

realtor.com: “. . . homes continue to sell quickly in what’s normally the fastest-moving time of the year. This is in contrast with 2020 when homes sold slower in the spring and fastest in September and October. While we expect fall to be competitive, this year’s seasonal pattern is likely to be more normal, with homes selling fastest from roughly now until mid-summer.”

Buying a Home Is Still Affordable

There are three main factors that go into determining how affordable homes are for buyers:

>>Mortgage Rates

>>Mortgage Payments as a Percentage of Income

>>Home Prices

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) produces a Housing Affordability Index. It takes these three factors into account and determines an overall affordability score for housing. According to the index, homes are more affordable now than they’ve been at any point since the housing crash when distressed properties (foreclosures and short sales) dominated the market. Those properties were sold at large discounts not seen before in the housing market for almost one hundred years.

Buying a home really is still affordable, while this market takes patience to find the right home, and the home that we can get an accepted offer on, homes are still affordable for most buyers. There are a number of reasons for why homes are so affordable but they primarily surround, Mortgage Rates being near historic lows, even today! Mortgage payments due to the low interest rates are a lower percentage of income as wages rise. And home prices, while home prices are going up, it just means that the homebuyer will gain equity much faster than they would previously! Now is a great time to buy a home, because the experts and myself do not see home prices slipping any time soon. Home prices are only going to continue to rise meaning you must act now before you are priced out. If you are ready to make your move give David Hittle with United Real Estate Louisville a call today 502-489-1135


Tax Season is Here!

Tax Returns are In! What better use for your hard earned tax refund than to use it to buy a home?

Your tax refund could just be the boost you need to help with the down payment or closing costs on your new home, and with homeownership come tax benefits too!

So don't waste your tax refund on something that won't make you wealthier, use it for something that will increase your net-worth and provide for a more stable future!

If you are preparing to purchase a home, whether it is your first, or your fifth I can help you navigate through the process and make sure that you are getting the best deal possible.

Give me a call! 502-489-1135


How Misunderstandings about Affordability Could Cost You

There’s a lot of discussion about affordability as home prices continue to appreciate rapidly. Even though the most recent index on affordability from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows homes are more affordable today than the historical average, some still have concerns about whether or not it’s truly affordable to buy a home right now.

When addressing this topic, there are various measures of affordability to consider. However, very few of the indexes compare the affordability of owning a home to renting one.

Message from David Hittle, Realtor United Real Estate Louisville:

This week one of my clients finally received an accepted offer and will be moving in to their Dream Home this week. The struggle is real!! Making an offer, getting countered, almost getting rejected, and eventually getting through repairs, appraisals and closing all in about 40 days. It is a fast moving market, and everyone must be on their toes!

The experts predict that home prices will continue to rise, which means waiting to buy may cost you in the long run. Actually getting into a home today means you get to take advantage of the equity that is building in your home every single month!

Here in Louisville the average home gained just over $3,000 between March and April and average selling price rose over $8,000 between March and April. Homeowners are gaining value in their homes with an annual average last year of 9%. While interest rates remain low, and home buyer’s are slamming the market we remain in a RED HOT Seller’s Market.  


If you or someone you know needs a Realtor – I would be honored to help just call me 502-489-1135

Looking to Buy a Brand New Home? I would love to set up an appointment with my favorite builder for you! Why spend the money on an older home, with its issues, and its problems when you could buy a brand new, customizable home, and receive a 1 year home warranty, a 7 year structural warranty, and the peace of mind, knowing that when you sell that home, it is a 2020 built home! Give me a Call Today: 502-489-1135


This week the Mortgage Interest Rates as published by Freddie Mac fell to 2.95%, down 0.05 percentage points from last week’s 3.00%, they are closing in on last year’s 3.15%. 2.65% is the lowest ever seen since recording started back in 1971 and was obtained the first week of January 2021.


This week in the Louisville and Lexington Kentucky area there were 3,251 (+23) homes & condos for sale, with the average days on market sitting at 29.80 (+/-0.00 Days). We are now at 0.95 (-0.01 Months) months of inventory, making this a “Seller’s Market” which is under the six months needed to have a “Balanced Market”. Builder’s are accelerating their building of brand new homes, but with lumber prices on the rise, it is making it harder for smaller builder’s to be able to afford. Bigger builder’s will have to come to the rescue, if we are ever to catch up with home buyer demand.


The Average Sale Price for April 2021 was $257,630 (Up $3,464 from March 2021), with Median Selling Price being $223,500 (Up $8,500 from March 2021). These numbers are up from last year’s $235,494 and $200,000 respectively. Year over year both average sale price and median selling price were up vs. last year.


If you are in need of a Real Estate Professional someone with the heart of a teacher, rather than a heart of a salesperson I’m the Realtor for you!


If you ever have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me, I’d love to hear from you and hear about your pla
