Hi everyone. Very good chance my family will be moving to the Louisville area, and, like so many before me, I am requesting information on the area from those of us with the insider knowledge. Here's the answers to the required questions.....

-Where you are working --- the federal building at 600 MLK avenue

-How much you are willing to spend on housing --- $200k-$250k

-How long of a commute you're willing to tolerate --- up to 45 minutes

-If you have kids: Private school or public school? --- 4 elementary age kids, and I'm fine with public, if they're good schools

-What type of neighborhood environment you are looking for: small town feeling? small city excitement? suburbia delight? --- doesn't matter as long as it's a safe environment to raise 4 children

-Community amenities important to you --- not really

-Pie or cake? --- I would do a backflip for a good key lime pie.


Thanks, folks.

-Where you are working --- the federal building at 600 MLK avenue

-How much you are willing to spend on housing --- $200k-$250k Should be several great opportunities-

How long of a commute you're willing to tolerate --- up to 45 minutes
Anywhere up I-71 should be good.

-If you have kids: Private school or public school? --- 4 elementary age kids, and I'm fine with public, if they're good schools blanket recommendation for public schools is Oldham County

-What type of neighborhood environment you are looking for: small town feeling? small city excitement? suburbia delight? --- doesn't matter as long as it's a safe environment to raise 4 children Again most Oldham County locations work well.

-Community amenities important to you --- not really No comment required

-Pie or cake? --- I would do a backflip for a good key lime pie.
Mom's in LaGrange (maybe) or for sure Homemade Pie & Ice Cream Kitchens (several in Louisville)
Thanks, folks.
I simply like Oldham County for your criteria. Southern Indiana will accomplish a lot of its specifications as well.

Not much to add, but I'd second the post above. Oldham County comes to mind first and foremost, but I have to wonder if you might not get more house in Southern Indiana (New Albany, Clarksville, Jeffersonville, etc.). I think your money may go farther here in Southern Indiana, but I may be wrong. I happen to live in Clarksville and enjoy it, and frankly your tolerance for a commute can open up a lot of towns in Southern Indiana for you (Corydon is a town that I have always liked).

Anyway, welcome to the area if you happen to come this way.

tomocox, evercleancleaningservices,

Thanks for your comments and recommendations. I'll look into Oldham Co. and Southern Indiana.
