Louisville is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the 29th-most populous city in the United States. It is one of two cities in Kentucky designated as first-class, the other being the state’s second-largest city of Lexington. Louisville is the historical seat and, since 2003, the nominal seat of Jefferson County.
Louisville was founded in 1778 by George Rogers Clark and is named after King Louis XVI of France, making Louisville one of the oldest cities west of the Appalachian Mountains. Sited beside the Falls of the Ohio, the only major obstruction to river traffic between the upper Ohio River and the Gulf of Mexico, the settlement first grew as a portage site. It was the founding city of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, which grew into a 6,000-mile (9,700 km) system across 13 states. Today, the city is known as the home of the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Fried Chicken, the University of Louisville and its Louisville Cardinals athletic teams, Louisville Slugger baseball bats, and three of Kentucky’s six Fortune 500 companies. Its main airport is also the site of United Parcel Service’s worldwide air hub.
Since 2003, Louisville’s borders have been the same as those of Jefferson County because of a city-county merger. The official name of this consolidated city-county government is the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government, abbreviated to Louisville Metro. Despite the merger and renaming, the term “Jefferson County” continues to be used in some contexts in reference to Louisville Metro, particularly including the incorporated cities outside the “balance” which make up Louisville proper. The city’s total consolidated population as of the 2014 census estimate was 760,026. However, the balance total of 612,780 excludes other incorporated places and semi-autonomous towns within the county and is the population listed in most sources and national rankings.
The Louisville-Jefferson County, KY-IN Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), sometimes also referred to as Kentuckiana, includes Louisville-Jefferson County and 12 surrounding counties, seven in Kentucky and five in Southern Indiana. As of 2014, the MSA had a population of 1,269,702, ranking 43rd nationally.
Who Else Wants To “Sell My House Fast In Louisville Kentucky?”
Selling a house through a real estate agent is pretty common… but it’s not for everyone. For some folks it costs too much money and takes too much time to sell through an agent. Yes, you might get a higher price selling on the market (although you might not), people are learning that it’s not always worth the cost or the time.
With an agent, you’ll pay to fix up your house, then you’ll wait months while they try to find a buyer (and you’ll pay bills the whole time), then you’ll pay a commission when it’s all said and done.
But there is another option, and that’s what we do at Covenant Properties…
We buy houses directly from homeowners. We don’t list houses (like an agent does), which means you don’t need to fix up the house first, you don’t need to wait (we’re ready to buy right away), and there are no commissions or fees to pay.

Pros and Cons to Each of the Top 3 Ways of Selling a House
We’re here to help you make an informed decision. That’s why we’ve put together this quick guide for you to help you determine if Covenant Properties might be a fit for your situation.
Selling a house using an agent:
Selling using an agent is the most expensive way to sell a house, however depending on your situation, it might be the way you want to sell. If your house is in great condition, you have no urgency to sell, and you do not want to market and show the property yourself, this might be best route to take.
Pros: You don’t have to market the property yourself. You also have someone else handling most of the paperwork for you. Additionally, you will usually get close to full market value.
Cons: This process takes longer, (about 3-12 months depending on location and market conditions) and is the most costly way to sell. You should expect to have costs about 10% to 15% after commissions, any buyer concessions, escrow fees, closing costs, and holding costs. (Taxes, insurance, mortgage interest).
Timeline: You should expect to sell the property in about 3 – 12 months, depending on the market.
Selling a house yourself (FSBO):
Selling FSBO takes work and time, but can save you some money. If you’re not in a rush, are familiar with the process of selling real estate, and your house is in great shape this might be a good choice for you. If your selling your house to a retail buyer, expect that people will be nit picky about your house, especially in Louisville, KY.
Pros: You’ll save money. This is one of the less expensive ways to sell a house, and is generally about 3% to 8% cheaper than selling using a real estate agent depending on how long it takes you to sell.
Cons: FSBO’s typically take the longest to sell. You should expect 3 – 12 months depending on your market. Additionally, if you’re not familiar with the real estate process, or not very good with people or marketing, this might not be the best route to take.
Timeline: Expect to sell your house within 3 to 12 months depending on the market.
Selling to a Cash House Buyer:
If your property is in need of some work, you need to sell quickly, or just want an easy transaction selling to a “we buy houses in Louisville” company is the way to go. Selling to a cash buyer is by far the easiest way to sell a property. Cash buyers are experienced, and can usually close quickly, without inspections and appraisals. Additionally, cash house buyers are not like retail buyers. Retail buyers are pickier, and require inspections, appraisals (sometimes 2 appraisals) and more time. Important to note that cash house buyers rarely can pay full market value for your property.
Pros: Selling to a cash home buyer company in Louisville can get you a faster close using cash. No waiting on banks. Less inspections and no appraisals. No back end fees, and sell “as-is” without putting one penny into fixing the place up.
Cons: Cash house buyers can rarely pay full retail value.
Timeline: Expect a 7 to 30 day close, or really whenever you’d like to close.
Each way of selling has its advantages and drawbacks. The important thing to do is to assess your situation and determine what route is best for you to take.
