Thanks to everyone for your comments. I see what you mean about N. KY and think I'll narrow my search to the Ohio area. While Hyde Park and Oakley have a lot going on, it seems that a lot of the houses are older and have either a 1 car garage or no garage at all. Moving a bit outside of this area might be the best thing for me. I think I can tolerate a 30 minute commute.

What do people think about Green Township, Westwood, Anderson Township, or Union Township? There seem to be a lot of homes in this area in my price range.

Thank you for your time in reading this post!

I was born and raised in Ft. Thomas, KY and live in Pleasant Ridge now. Ft. Thomas is a great little community, very family-oriented with EXCELLENT schools. It's just across the river from downtown, and jumping on 471 could probably get you to Cinci Children's in 10 minutes or so.

On this side of the river, you'd want to be in the nicer areas of North Avondale, Walnut Hills, Clifton or definitely Hyde Park, Oakley, Pleasant Ridge.

If you like the suburb feel, I'd suggest Mariemont too. You may not find the 4 bedroom in the 250k range, but if you either go on the out-skirts a bit into Madison Place, or lower your house size expectations, that would be a great commute. I go all the way downtown to the river from Madison Place and during rush-hour it takes me 20 minutes. 10-15 other times. Again, that's all the way down to 3rd street.
