I'm considering moving to Louisville and think that the Middletown area has a lot of things that suit me and my lifestyle. Would any current or former residents care to share their opinions on the area?

I'm moving from Nashville. I'm in my late 20s and want to rent for about a year before buying. I'll be working downtown. I'm not a party person, so being close to the bars/nightlife isn't a priority to me. I want to be close to shopping and in the suburbs, which is why I'm thinking Middletown might be a good fit for me.

We live on the Anchorage side of Middletown and you are correct that the area is very nice in regards to accessibility of shopping and dining options. Traffic, especially on Shelbyville Road gets real bad in a late afternoon but that's to be expected anywhere. There are houses in just about any price range could be looking for. There is a new apartment complex going up just across from the Target/Walmart shopping center which is supposed to open early this summer. I'm not sure about the pricing but it looks very nice and certainly is a great area for what you are looking for. Another area you might want to consider is Lyndon, it's a little closer in which is nice and much closer to the malls. While it's just as busy as Middletown many parts of it don't feel quite as busy.

There is more affordable housing in the East End than many people think. Surrounded by the newer high income developments are smaller 3 (sometimes 2) bedroom homes built from the 1940s to 1970s. Most of them are in the $125k range though you see some closer to $100 sometimes. Apartment prices range from pretty cheap to very expensive, again the older ones with less amenities are cheaper.

NE Louisville is nice due to the access to lots of jobs, easier access to downtown vs other outlying areas, shopping, and there are also some really nice parks. I-71 is a nice back door route to get downtown with a lot less traffic than any other route.
