Mandatory Rental Property Registry Begins March 1

If you or your clients own rental properties in the Louisville Metro area, an incoming new requirement may affect your business. 

Beginning March 1, 2017, all rental properties in the Louisville Metro area must be registered with the Louisville Metro Government. This registration includes current rental property street addresses and owner contact information for each property. Failure to register a property may incur fines of up to $100 per day per rental unit. 

It looks like the registration process is relatively painless, but you will need an account with Develop Louisville in order to register your properties. 

Get all the info you need here to be ready for the March 1 deadline!


Agent Spotlight: Michael Dooley

Our agent spotlight series continues with longtime Compass agent and just all-around good guy Michael Dooley. Michael joined Compass Realtors in 2011 and quickly became part of the family. 

Michael's service-oriented approach to his job makes him an invaluable member of the team. "My favorite part of this job is helping families find their dream homes, or helping someone buy a run-down piece of property and make it new again." 

Mike's own dream home is a secluded, wooded home with several acres and an infinity pool that he'd probably never leave (if he could). Currently, Mike resides with his beloved cat and enjoys traveling in his free time. But fortunately for us, Mike truly loves his job and logs some serious hours helping his clients find exactly what they want.

Mike grew his client base by following one rule: "Follow up on EVERY lead and call EVERYONE back. Even if it doesn't seem like the right client for you, you never know where something will lead. Ninety percent of life is showing up and trying your best."

We're very thankful every day to work with Mike, and look forward to many more successful years together! View Mike's listings here and call to schedule a showing today!
