Default Wanting to buy some land in Lexington, Ky.

I currently live in southern california and I really do hate it here. It's too hot, I hate the earthquakes and the land and homes are too exspensive. So I would like to move where the land is cheaper. But I'm questioning where to go. My big question is about the weather in Lexington. I've read that the humidity is so bad, you can't even go outside.

If so, where is it that the humidity is low and safe to raise a family and good jobs?

I'm not looking to stay on the west side. Looking towards the southern states (not deep south).

There isn't much land in Lexington/Fayette County, if you are talking about having acres that is. You may find that you have more choices and cheaper prices in surrounding counties.

We have humidity, but I don't think it really slows anybody down a lot. We just complain about it and go on.

LEXpert: Yes I am looking for acreage. Everything I've found so far is coming up on the outskirts of Lexington.

I have land for sale in Woodford County (7+ acres) about 15-20 minutes west of downtown Lexington. It has a beautiful view and fenced in. Around great "horse country" Check it out on Justice Real Estate's website. I just returned form Northern Georgia. Humidity is around 90% and temps were over 100 degrees 4 out of the 7 days spent there. Lexington is much more tolerable than Tennesee to the south and other southern states other than the coastal areas.

Land + acres within 20 miles of Downtown Lex is very expensive. However there are quite a few averaged sized houses/ yards scattered around that are fairly cheap.
