We are considering relocating from the Chicago area to Louisville. After looking at many real estate sites, I'm wondering why Louisville has so darn many HOAs. I've lived in an HOA community and HATED it!

Isn't that a pain? It is the one reason we never moved to the Louisville area since we let in '79. And to make it worse, the real estate agencies are under contract to the HOA's. Problem is, most cities we visited had them.

Huh? Not really. Not compared to the coast, or especially, Florida. You need to look more in the urban city, especially the Highlands, St Matthews, and Crescent Hill. Great housing stock, better home appreciation, and no HOAs whatsoever.

Aren't those areas pretty pricey? We're looking at <250K.

We have next to zero HOAs in Illinois, even in expensive neighborhoods.

We moved into a great place in Deer Park(Highlands) for under what you are looking to spend. Crescent Hill is a little less, but not for long. The Highlands and Crescent Hill are the antithesis of HOA neighborhoods! You might have a house with pink trim and across the street will be a purple and blue house. All very nice. If you are looking to move here, you will be doing yourself a disservice not checking out those areas. You can get something to 250.

Why move that far out? Louisville isn't Chicago; it offers many of the amenities of a big city like Chicago, but with lower traffic, crime, prices, and all the bad that comes with the big city. It has its issues, but what you need is a really good realtor. remember getting you a realtor costs you all of nothing. The seller pays for the realtor, and that cost is built into the price you are paying for the home, so it is built in.

You can easily find a nice, 3 bedroom home for under 250k in parts of the upper highlands or the outskirts of crescent hill.

I would look into getting Tre Pryor or someone from Ky Select Properties

HOA_- Gestapos movement came with the sprawl and new construction - got the " security" gates up- and the commandos showed up to run them. Never could figure out if the criminals were inside or outside- as they treat the homeowners as though they were in a HUGE corrections facility.
NEVER EVER - will I live under that again - I just bought my last home -and I can die here in peace. Save that extra money --get a yard man- pool guy- maint. man- and be HAPPY
