I found out I'm getting my promotion and we were excited to learn that we'd be coming to Louisville. My wife got her undergrad in violin performance and she's an artist, so it looks like Louisville/KY is a good area for us to enjoy the arts and entertainment when I'm not working.

We're looking for a house to rent that has a 2 car garage and is at least 1900 square feet in a safe neighborhood. She'll be home with our two young daughters, so that's my first priority. Where should we look?

Since this will just be a year rental, we'd also be amenable to true city living...i.e. high-rise apartment, but haven't looked at those yet. Any advice on or links to home finding services would also be appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

-Where you are working?

Near the Gene Snyder Freeway and The National Turnpike intersection.

-How much you are willing to spend on housing?

$1,200 to 1,500/mo. Would go up to $2,000 if the home is outstanding. (But we've been happy with the places we've seen on Craigslist in the lower price range.)

-How long of a commute you're willing to tolerate?

25 minutes, maximum.

-Schools aren't important right now.

-Community amenities important to you

Close to groceries
Safe parks/things for young kids to do
Fitness Center nearby

-Pie or cake?

Both, with ice cream. Please.

Since your work is so far west... I say live as far northeast as you can stand (25 min away). Probably the Highlands is close enough to your work.

I know of a beautiful home to rent in Oldham County Ky, about 20 to 25 min commute to downtown Lousiville. Excellent schools. The home is for sale or rent. Absolutely gorgeous and great area to live, excellent schools and wonderful neighbors! Ready to move in.
