Today, I’m at the law offices of Borders and Borders Attorneys, speaking with Harry Borders.  Harry has been practicing law for over 20 years and is a frequent instructor of continuing education classes for Realtors at the Greater Louisville Association of Realtors, so I thought he would be the perfect person to talk to about property surveys in the Louisville market.

Greg:    All right Harry I appreciate you sitting down with me today. I have a couple questions about a topic that's interested me for awhile, and that's surveys, primarily for residential properties. I'm not as concerned about commercial properties. But do you see surveys being of interest to buyers? Should it be of interest? Do you find that buyers maybe should get a little bit more involved in surveys than ...

Harry:    It's one of the most overlooked areas in a residential contract. Contract will give the buyer the right to have a survey, but honestly, I would say 1 in 100 buyers get a survey...

Welcome everyone to the Louisville Real Estate Podcast for July 22, 2015. This is the Louisville Home Remodeling edition. I'm Greg Fleischaker, licensed with Kentucky Select Properties, here to help you make a wise and informed decision in your next real estate transaction.

Today I'm at the offices of Ben Tyler, one of Louisville's most highly sought after and successful home remodelers. Ben has been in the home remodeling business since the early '80s, so I thought he would be the perfect person to talk to about home remodeling in the Louisville market. Is that right, early '80s

Ben:    Early '80s it is.

Greg:    How did you get in to the remodeling business?

Ben:    I graduated from college not knowing exactly what I wanted to do. I had a degree in Economics and Business Administration, and ended up coaching soccer and doing a little school teaching for about a year. A couple fellas bought a building over on Douglas Boulevard and they were going to remodel it and convert it to condos, it was a six-plex. They asked me if I would want to be involved in it. I'd had a little interest in carpentry, so I thought, "Shoot, why not, I'm not doing anything else right now that's incredibly important." I had enrolled in law school, and when they asked me to do that, I decided I wouldn't go to law school and I put that off for awhile, so we ...

Welcome everyone to the Louisville Real Estate Podcast for July 15th, 2015. This is the flood insurance edition. I'm Greg Fleischaker, licensed with Kentucky Select Properties, here to help you make a wise and informed decision in your next real estate transaction.

Today I'm at the law offices of Borders and Borders attorneys, and I'm speaking with Harry Borders. Harry has been practicing law for over 20 years, and is a frequent instructor of continuing education classes for realtors at the Greater Louisville Association of Realtor. I thought he would be the perfect person to talk to about Louisville flood insurance. Let's start at the beginning. What is flood insurance?

Harry:    Flood insurance is a very heavily subsidized insurance product that is run by FIMA of the federal government, and it is designed to help folks to be able to afford to live and work in the flood zone. In the 1970s, the federal government, in their infinite wisdom, decided to encourage people to build in the flood zones...

Welcome everyone to the Louisville Real Estate Podcast for July 8, 2015. This is the Louisville Real Estate Brokerage edition. I'm Greg Fleischaker, licensed with Kentucky Select Properties, here to help you make a wise and informed decision in your next real estate transaction. Today I'm visiting with Jay Gulick, a high school soccer teammate from years past who also just happens to be the managing broker at Kentucky Select Properties where I have my sales license. Jay has been at Kentucky Select since 2005 and I know he takes great pride in the fact that his company is the top selling, 100% locally owned and independent real estate company in the Louisville market, selling more than 246 million dollars worth of homes last year, 2014.

Jay might be a little biased in this conversation but that is exactly why I want to talk to him about brokerages and consumers' choice of working with local brokerages when buying or selling a home. On some level every agent you work with is going to be into brokerage but there're different sizes, there are different styles of how you can set a brokerage up. I wanted to talk to Jay about Kentucky Select in particular and how he chose to set it up or how it was set up when he got here, how it's set up now and some of the advantages and benefits of working with Kentucky Select in his mind. Jay, to you. Do you want to introduce Kentucky Select, kind of give consumers a quick idea of how you're structured?

Welcome everyone to the Louisville Real Estate pod cast for July 1, 2015. This is the home pricing addition. I'm Greg Fleischaker, licensed with Kentucky Select Properties, here to help you make a wise and informed decision in your next real estate transaction.

Today I'm visiting with Jay Gulick, a friend from high school who also happens to be the managing broker at Kentucky Select Properties, where he has overseen hundreds, or more likely thousands of real estate transactions. I though he would be the perfect person to sit down with and discuss how to properly price a home to sell in our local market.

All right Jay, not only are you the managing broker of Kentucky Select but your an active sales man as well. When your getting ready to put a home on the market how do you approach the issue of pricing a home?
