In today’s fast paced world, the cliché stating “Home is Where the Heart Is,” has never been truer. There are inexpensive and convenient ways to improve your home in every aspect.

These days’ appearance is everything when you are trying to sell anything, and this is especially true when selling your Louisville home. When you hear Realtors talk about ‘staging’ your home, this means getting everything ready to make a great first impression for prospective buyers when they begin to walk through the door.
Here are the top 12 tips to stage your home for fantastic first impressions.
• The number one rule for nearly all homes: paint. Even a fresh coat of a neutral shade will brighten the interior of any home, giving it a clean and fresh feeling to those seeing it for the first time.
• Green is in! When performing upgrades or modifications, use environmentally friendly labor resources and materials. This adds a great selling point to any property listing.
• Up-cycle what you can to save on money, as well as staying within the ‘green’ theme. Hardwood floors can be re-purposed to furniture or fencing, old counter tops can be made into shelves, and doors can be re-purposed into just about anything to compliment the home's style and offerings.
• Allude to more space. For a small space, paint the same color as the adjoining room. For example, painting a small kitchen and open dining room the same color will make the area appear larger than it really is. Another example of giving the impression of bigger spaces is by hanging curtains that are the same color as the walls. This gives the interior a modern and seamless look.
• Avoid overcrowding. That large overstuffed furniture may be comfortable to sit in, but if placed in a small room; it can appear cramped. Make the most of the space with size appropriate...
Let’s explore one of the most popular cities within a city, St. Matthews and discover what it has to offer people searching the listings of homes for sale in St. Matthews or those thinking about relocating to the Louisville area. Since Jefferson County KY has merged with the city of Louisville, Louisville Metro is in the top 18 largest metropolitan areas of the United States. This sprawling city is truly a melting pot of cultures located on the Ohio River and the residents of St. Matthews enjoy the best of a small city and a large metro city simultaneously.
The city of St. Matthews grew up around the intersecting points of Breckinridge Lane, Westport Road, and Shelbyville Road directly along the railroad. The area was originally farmland owned by farmers Monohan, Brown, Nanz, Rudy, and Oeschner. These are the same names you will find on streets, parks, and monuments throughout the city of Louisville. In the early 20th century, St. Matthews saw residential growth from the use of the automobile and transit traffic. In 1937, the Ohio River rose to dangerous levels, flooding much of the city. Many residents fled the flood plain in search of a drier area to raise their families. Many of these fled southeast from the downtown area into the area that is present day St. Matthews.
In the new millennium, St. Matthews is a bustling mini-city that only continues to develop. The railroad still goes through the neighborhood, and it is still used for cargo transit today. St. Matthews is both residential and commercial; hosting...
