Crestwood Kentucky landed 53rd on the CNN/Money’s top 100 places to live in 2005 only to disappeared off the list like a whack-o-mole. I can’t say why it hasn’t shown up again but it has many features that make it a terrific community.

Initially I found it intimidating comparing our little town to affluent Crestwood. They have great schools, newly expanded roads, beautiful rolling verdant hills. Oh yeah, and a prison, horrible traffic on 71 during rush hour, and annoyingly high...

Remember the idyllic town of white picket fences and friendly neighbors from the Andy Griffith Show? I tell my brothers and sisters that live in Oldham County that Mt. Washington is like a “little Mayberry”. We may not be all smiling faces and “howdy Andy” but it turns out I've been selling my community short.

The recession started in December 2007 so I ran the numbers on five of the metro area’s most populous counties to see how our market is weathering the storm.

Louisville has historically been stable, avoiding the effervescent fevers and crashes that other parts of the country sometimes suffer.

But this downturn is different. It’s broader and deeper than the pullbacks of recent memory. It’s no surprise that our market is getting battered with the...

One of my clients asked me about the value of his above-ground pool. He bought a 'fixer' in an east end subdivision and wants to know if he should keep the pool or get rid of it.

I couldn't find enough sales in his subdivision to make a graphical study so I searched the MLS to identify a couple of similarly priced subdivisions that did.

In the course of my efforts I learned that the above-ground pool mecca of our metro area is Hillview and the areas directly to the...
