Choosing a Louisville Home Inspector

It’s without a doubt one of the single most important pieces in the home buying process, and something that typically makes both buyers and sellers a little bit nervous. The home inspection period exists in a real estate transaction for the protection of all interested parties. After all, you probably wouldn’t buy a home after learning that it needs $20,000 worth of repairs, but you’d be happy to spend $450 in order to save you from making that mistake. There are a lot of home inspectors out there, but trust me when I say that they are not all created equally. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a Louisville home inspector for your real estate purchase. Continue reading “Choosing a Louisville Home Inspector”

A Blast From the Past: Missing Louisville Restaurants

Louisville’s restaurant scene has become quite impressive over the years. With a multitude of renowned chefs and a focus on local, farm-to-table dining, Louisville has popped up on the radar for foodies everywhere. While we acknowledge growth and improvement, I would like to also acknowledge a few of the fallen restaurants along the way. Here’s to a few places that were delicious while they lasted!

Kaelin’s Restaurant | Speed Ave & Newburg Rd | Highlands

KaelinsPatioKaelin’s Restaurant pioneered the cheeseburger. That would be the FIRST cheeseburger. Everyone in Louisville knows that this place made one of Louisville’s best cheeseburgers. What a total bummer that it’s closed! One more time I would like to order the fried green tomatoes appetizer and KaelinsWavesave one to put on my cheeseburger. Hopefully soon, you can at least enjoy their patio again. The recently occupying Mulligan’s has also closed, but the famous sign is still intact. I also noticed that the space next door gives a little tip of the hat to the olden days with its name, Kaelin’s Coffeehouse. Continue reading “A Blast From the Past: Missing Louisville Restaurants”

374 Crescent Spring Drive: THE Condo Life

The Louisville condo market is interesting. Actually, I’m pretty sure that you could say this about pretty much any city in the U.S. There are always buyers for condos, but the number of buyers is much smaller than that of a single family residence. Still, condos offer a low maintenance lifestyle that most single family homes cannot offer, as well as amenities that are more affordable and less of a hassle. Some developments have a very self-contained feel to them, offering a desirable neighborhood layout, plenty of parking, a convenient location, and fantastic amenities. Crescent Spring, located in the Clifton area of the 40206 zip code, is one of these developments I speak of. Crescent Spring offers its residentsĀ THEĀ condo life.
