If you're bound and determined to move into Oldham County, then I would endorse Lagrange and Crestwood, over all others. Both are decent little communities.

I prefer Crestwood, it is a top notch area and located near to major city amenities.

You have had many opinions expressed here on this blog. Many very good and very objective observations have been made. Now, in my opinion, you need to list what you want in a home and then contact the real estate professional of your choice. Here is a fact.. let everyone say what they want, but when a real estate pro is involved, there is much less chance for a bad purchase than without. You will note that I said, "real estate pro." Interview several Realtors. Hire a realtor the same way you would any contractor. Get references, get a realtor's resume, etc. And whatever you do, don't just hire a realtor who works for a brand name. There are good realtors in small companies, and bad realtors in large companies just like there are bad realtors in small and good in large. Vote for the person, not the party...

Update: We have now been living here in Buckner for 2 months, and LOVE it here. The area is quiet, people nice, not much traffic, and we are right in between Crestwood and LaGrange. Very convenient and nice homes.

Thanks for the update, Madrigar! I just sent you a direct message with some questions. I'd love to hear more about your neighborhood, the schools, etc.

Thanks!

Are you there yet? If so, where did you wind up living? Any advice for someone who is now in your shoes?

Thanks!

Springtimegirl~

Unfortunately, we weren't able to sell our house in Michigan so we are still here. We had it on the market for a little over a year and decided to just take it off for now. Who knows what we'll end up doing. Right now my husband goes back and forth between Michigan and Indiana every other week for his job. Like I said, I don't know if we'll ever move to that area at the rate we're going. So much is up in the air right now.

Are you moving to the area soon? What is your situation?

Have you thought about renting? We are also planning to move to either Oldham or Shelby county (leaving NC). Our house in NC has been on the market 4 years. We're going to try to rent it and then rent something here until we can sell/buy. These comments have been helpful to us too as we're trying to decide where in Oldham we'd best like to live. Found a house we love in Croftboro Farms. Anyone have advise about that subdivision?

I know Croftboro pretty well. It's a good 20-25 yr old area. Good area to raise a child, open space 1 plus acre lots. Home prices holding pretty steady.
