I have some questions about Louisville.
I hear the economy there is pretty decent compared to the rest of the US + home prices are pretty cheap I see.
Would it make sense to move there?
I would say yes.

If you can find a job that pays the bills why not?

Seriously, you should tell a little about you and what you want in a city. Just because economic and job conditions are favorable dont mean you should move. I've been learning that lesson for about 5 years now in Northern VA.

Well for starters, my desired city is Portland OR.
Portlands cost of living is a bit high, and Louisvilles low COL kinda intrigued me especially when I saw a house for sale for 50 grand and I was like WOW in a major city like this?
I like the weird funky kinds of towns if thats enough of a help on what it is about me.
As far as just chasing a good economy without thinking about the types of people you want to surround yourself in can backfire. Never chase the current winners as they say because they are only hot RIGHT NOW, but not within the next 2-3 yrs.
FL was that and so was LV but both those places collapsed. KYs cheapness with Louisville seems somewhat desirable tho and for the type of city it is too.
