Shively is a city in Jefferson County, Kentucky, United States, and a suburb of Louisville within the Louisville Metro government. As of the 2010 census, the city’s population was 15,264, reflecting an increase of 107 (+0.7%) from 15,157 in 2000.
Following the settlement of Louisville at the Falls of the Ohio in 1778, farms spread out into the nearby countryside. Early landowners included Col. William Pope, Maj. Abner Field, and the Shivelys, Christian William and Jacob. Christian opened a mill and tavern on the section of his 1,000-acre (400 ha) tract near Mill Creek and the road—later incorporated as the Louisville and Nashville Turnpike—connecting Louisville to the Salt River.This became the focus of a settlement known as the “Shively precinct”. He donated the land for a church in 1816 that is now known as Parkview Methodist.
A stagecoach stop was opened in 1831. The Elizabethtown and Paducah Railroad arrived in the 1870s.
Shortly before the Civil War, the area became popular among German immigrants, mostly from Bavaria, and they erected St. Helen’s Catholic Church in 1897. The community was commonly known as “St. Helen’s” for the next few years, but the post office (est. 1902) could not adopt it owing to another community with that name in Lee County.
A streetcar line was extended to the area in 1904.
Shively is centered on the junction of US 60 and the Dixie Highway (US 31W) near. Its modern boundaries are roughly Millers and Bernheim Lane to the north (Louisville’s Algonquin neighborhood); Louisville’s Seventh Street to the east; I-264 and St. Dennis to the west; and Rockford Lane and Pleasure Ridge Park to the south. Shively is 5 miles (8 km) southwest of downtown Louisville.
According to the United States Census Bureau, Shively has a total area of 4.6 square miles (11.9 km2), of which 0.01 square miles (0.02 km2), or 1.73%, are water.

Who Else Wants To “Sell My House Fast In Shively 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 Shively Kentucky
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 Shively KY” 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 Shively 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.
