I would say to look on the southside of town. It would be hard finding a home in that price range however.

There are some areas of smaller/ older (1970s) era homes outside of New Circle on the South End of town. You might want to look in the Boston Rd area. Further in, the area around Beacon Hill Drive is still pretty nice

How about the Grassy Creek/Hidden Springs area outside MOW near Boston Rd? Another area that may work is Blueberry Hill. The roads out there are Yale/Temple and other Ivy League sachools. It is on the SE side onf Nicholasville Rd and Wilson-Downing. The houses can be small, but check out Southhampton/Northhampton. A little farther east is Belleau Woods. FYI On lbar.com, Richmond Rd. to Nicholasville Rd is Area 3, Nicholasville Rd to Leestown Rd is area 4. Good Luck!!

Everyone keeps on mentioning "area 3 vs area 4" on LBAR and I can't figure out how to search by area number. Anyone mind cluing me in?

I recently discovered that you can't search on LBAR by area. You use to be able to, but they have changed that since I last went in on the public side. On the agent side of the site you can search by just about anything!

Go to The Lexington Bluegrass Multiple Listing Service .
Click on Find Properties.
Click on the little window with the magnifying glass next to "Areas"
Check off Fayette County SW 4 and click on OK.
Then check off the other parameters you want and click on submit.
If you have over 100 hits it will ask you to put in more parameters to get fewer hits.

It works similarly if you are looking to check off subdivisions, which is my particular addiction.

That is the difference. Micahgirl linked to lbarmls.com. You can only search by county if you use lbar.com. The lbar.com one is really limited in choosing search criteria. It use to be that the page you see on lbarmls.com was the same one on lbar.com. That is what they have changed over the past couple years!!

Default Lexington Area

I want to relocate between Waynesboro, VA where my son lives and Lexington where I will be close enough to drive to a major lake like Smith Mountain and be close to major shopping as well. I currently live in N VA and health issues have forced me into retiring early. Other considerations would
be lower cost of living, and housing. Can you purchase a Ranch style
home in a nice safe livable area for 250K? What are some of the area's
we should check out? Any help would be appreciated!

Question More info please!

I may be relocating to Lexington this fall and will be working at the VA medical center. I am interested in a brick rancher or condo with garage for under $220K. I prefer 3 bedrooms, 2 & 1/2 baths, formal living and dining rooms. Top priorities are safe and convenient. Any neighborhoods that would fit the bill?Also gas heat is a must! Can someone please explain the property taxes in Lexington to me?

Absolutely! It's one of my favorite older areas of Lexington. Would have moved in that area myself years ago except didn't want to change my kid's school. The homes are well priced with many of them having much charm and the area is close to everything.

Also, Stonewall was mentioned. You can't touch a house in the Stonewall area for low 100,000s.
