My wife and I are due for a transfer and Louisville is one of the locations on our list. I don't know a lot about the city as I have only visited briefly. So, we are looking for some quick assistance to narrow our list of transfer options. I am hoping all of you can help.

We are in our early 30s, have one kid, and expect another. We want to live in an area with great schools, a real community feel, and be no more than a 45 min commute of downtown. Ideally, we would like 2,500 sq ft or more in a 4BR/2BA house with character. Think something unique, either new or very old. I don't need a huge yard, but room enough to kick a soccer ball or throw a football would be nice. Our budget is no more than $450K.

Can you guys point me in the right direction to start my internet search so we can see if we like the looks of the housing/area? Thanks.

Welcome to Louisville. It's a great place to raise a family. Right now the public school system isn't the greatest from what the news is reporting, but there are private schools or if you choose to live out of the Louisville area the schools are better from what I hear.

If you choose to live in the Louisville area, the Highlands/Bardstown Rd or Crescent Hill/Clifton/Frankfort Avenue is just minutes from downtown. Within 15-20 minutes you'll be downtown depending on traffic and you won't need to take the highways. The price ranges for a home in those areas are less than you mentioned. Depending what your looking for, it would be half of that amount. The farther east you go, the more expensive it would be and it could range up to and more of the amount you mentioned. But the commute to downtown is longer. They've built some really nice new areas outside of Louisville/Jefferson County. One area is like the Highlands or based upon it is called, Norton Commons. It has anything and everything you need for your daily living out there and it is very high scale living. Hopefully I've helped a bit.
