Things that will sell your Hardin County house

As complicated as real estate is, there are really only two things that will sell your Hardin County Kentucky house, price and exposure.
"Two things, but what about everything else? Aren't condition, location, and supply/demand important?". They are important but those should be factored into the price. For the amenities (beds/bath, finished basement, etc), square footage, supply/demand, and location, your house has a selling (value) range. The condition is what will determine where your house will sell within that range. If you have deferred maintenance, poor curb appeal, and/or a cluttered home then you could be at the bottom of your home's value range. If you want to sell in the shortest time and receive the most money for your home near Fort Knox Kentucky then you should hire an appraiser. An appraiser will cost roughly $250 but will save you time and money.

Exposure is the other thing that will get your house sold. Even if your house is priced way too low, it still won't sell if no one knows about it. On the other hand your home could have the best exposure available and if it's priced too high it won't sell either. The MLS is the most important exposure tool available, the internet is a close second. 84% of home buyers use the internet during their home search.

So if you're asking yourself "Why isn't my home selling?" take a look at your price and evaluate your exposure.
