With consumer confidence high and mortgage rates low, our local home-buying market is hot! Here are some essential tips to get prepared and stay ahead of the pack as multiple offers and quick sales will rule the summer.
The first step in the home-buying process is getting pre-approved with a top lender. That way, you’ll be all set to make a strong, serious offer when you find the right property. Contact HomeServices Lending for great rates and service!
Be the first to know
With homes selling quickly, you’ll want to be the first to know about new listings as they hit the market. Rector Hayden’s top local home search website – RectorHayden.com – is updated at the top of every hour, as is our mobile home-search app. You can save searches and receive alerts for homes that match your criteria!
Do smart searches
It’s easy to do your home search, no matter where you are or how you like to get your information. Download the Rector Hayden Home Search app for iPhone, iPad and Android to get access to every home for sale on our Central Kentucky MLS. Our mobile app allows you to search based on plenty of different criteria. Use our app and find homes that fit within two different commute times (ex: close to work and close to school!).
Get to know your ideal location
As you narrow things down, visit your preferred neighborhoods and talk with neighbors and local businesses. To learn more about current issues and any concerns, contact the local neighborhood association.

Make your first offer your best offer
It’s a seller’s market. You’ll want to discuss with your Rector Hayden Agent how to tailor your offer to appeal best to a seller. An experienced agent can make all the difference in your negotiations!
