We're seniors who live 25 miles from Bloomington on wooded acres and are planning to move closer to urbania for shopping and medical convenience. Although our roots are primarily near Bloomington, we love Evansville and find that we can buy much more house (for the dollar) as we house shop Evansville and even Owensboro. That's important to us since we would like to avoid embarking upon any sizable home mortgages moving forward as a result of our age and financial status. Also, we have one relative who lives in Evansville and have been there many times.

Our target price for a new home is approx $200K. I would love to get feedback about the comparisons and opportunities between Evansville and Owensboro from you folks - even though Hoosiers and Kentuckians have a tendency to verbally pound one another, given the opportunity (grin).

Curious about comparisons of State Taxes, Cost of Living, Medical Facilities, etc.

Thanks for your help.
