Anchorage, KY - A Great Place to Call Home   Anchorage is located in eastern Jefferson County and is a park- like community of approximately 3000 people and 850 residences. Here historic homes, country estates, and smaller homes can be found side by side. Typically the homes are situated on larger lots, and range in price from $200,000 to over $1,000,000. Although Anchorage is situated only 20 miles from downtown Louisville, it has retained its historical character and charm. To preserve the character of the town, an Anchorage Historic District was created and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The boundaries of the district have since been extended to include most of the town. The heavily shaded city with mature oak trees and magnolias provide a noticeable cool...

If you are still following along, I hope you are learning a few things about the process to buying a home.  In my last article, I discussed strategies to keep your home search efficient and stress-free.  If you missed it, you can view it here. Now we will talk about negotiating the best deal for you. There are many rules you need to follow along the way to getting the best deal on a home. 1. Always be open and honest with your agent about what you want and like in a home.  Your agent should always have your best interest at heart and will help make that dream a reality, but his or or her third party negotiation on your behalf will put just enough distance between your emotions and the seller's desire for a higher price. 2. If an owner or agent representing an owner is present when you a...

Louisville experiences below freezing temperatures every winter, but the current arctic blast is unusual in how long it is sticking around! We haven't seen a cold streak this long in the last eight years. Louisville's daily highs will be below freezing for at least the rest of this week if not longer.  The cold can cause a big spike in your utility bills! One of the easiest and fastest ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home is weatherstripping. It may be hard to believe, but those small cracks and openings around doors and windows really can make a big difference in the cost of heating and cooling your home. Many don't realize a 1/8" space between the exterior door and its threshold is almost the same as having a two inch square hole in your wall! And that is just the front...
