Hi, I am putting this in many areas in KY and TN.......these areas seem to be the more inexpensive areas to live for now.......! I am looking for the impossible it seems here. I need a place that is affordable for myself, maybe $400/month for a studio or a place that I can rent w/o employment until I can settled and buy myself a home for $80,000 or less. There has got to be areas in KY, and TN that I can live this inexpensively. Ideally w/o being in the middle of nowhere.....I need to work for several years yet, and would look for something full or part time when I get there along with a house. With out moving out in the middle of nowhere, and having a college nearby or a prosperous downtown would be a real plus for me. I don't need much, just a nice library, maybe a superwalmart for shopping, a park or two!
Any suggestions or ideas would be helpful.

Not a native of KY, so I can't give any particulars - sorry. Just a single female who is researching Louisville, KY, as an area to retire to when the time comes, so I read the KY Board.

However, on the Retirement Board, there are two threads by kate 45 and wisteria that may give you some food for thought. From reading the posts, these two ladies are considering moving to new locations alone, which sounds like what you may be doing.

Hope this helps!

Retiring on VERY limited budget..where to live? by kate45

Look at Realtor.com for homes.

Moderator cut: linking to competitors sites is not allowed

We did and found what we were looking for. Been here 6 months now and love it. Good luck.
