Smile Help! Relocating to Corbin/London from Michigan

Ok, so... it's been a year since I last wrote about relocating to KY. Our retirement plans didn't go as expected. We are now hoping to relocate to Corbin or London, from Michigan. Hopefully, in about 6 months.

We're going to be looking for a manufactured home that's already on land. Maybe on a 1/2-1 acre property. We just need land that's already established and all hooked up for the home.

Does anyone know where we can start? We don't want to be in a park situation, but we have no idea how much land is going for down there or where to start. We could buy a brand new manuf. home, but then we'd have to find the land. <sigh> Any ideas where to start? Who to contact that might help us? It's so hard, when you live in another state.

Thanks,
Cat

Can I ask why Corbin or London? If you have family there or have been there and liked it I understand. If you look at areas like Dry Ridge, however, you can find what you're looking for and still be close enough to Cincinnati, OH to enjoy all it has to offer.

Corbin is a wonderful town. It has the SE REgional Hospital for Ky. ..lots of doctors and medical facilities for the retiree. Housing is cheaper than most places. People are much friendlier than in London has been my experience. Corbin is much larger and has national chain stores like JC PEnny, and Belk, Lowes, etc for shopping. If you move to London you will have to come to Corbin to shop anyway. Corbin has a regional University located there- A campus of Eastern Ky university. It is a progressive town.

LOL, Corbin is no different than any other small town-it's full of cliques and snobbery. Progressive? Corbin is as white as my bread that's sitting on the kitchen counter. Not that London is far more diverse, it's just that i wouldn't use the term "progressive" to describe this region.

It's been a while since I've been on this forum but I saw your post... I have lived in East Bernstadt a few miles north of London for the past 3 years in a very nice, quiet and safe subdivision... No issues ever... Anyway, I've had to move to Lexington due to my commute so my home is for sale if you are interested. It is nearly 4000sq ft., 1.5 acres, built in 2007- very nice home and area... If you have any interest please pm or email me...

I can provide additional details about the area as well.

It would be wonderful to see some recent pictures of Corbin. We haven't been there in years! Can't wait 'til the Spring, so we can go back.

Has anybody seen any pics of Corbin/London on here?
