We just moved into the area and would like to buy in about a year. We're hoping for a 3 bed/2 bath with at least a half acre of land, preferably between that and about 5 acres. We don't want to be in a really fancy area, but we'd also prefer to be away from violence as much as possible. Since we're about a year out, I don't want to contact a realtor yet, but I'd like to look around and get a feel for area/pricing.
Any suggestions?

What areas do you want to commute to? Any children in public schools?

The first and biggest question, what's your ideal budget?

That being said, I ALWAYS recommend Southern Indiana for a nice home & land, way more bang for your buck and still very close to Louisville,KY. A few towns are listed below, all still within easy distance of the "city" and you get a lot more, plus couldn't be safer areas

Corydon, IN
Sellersburg, IN
Lanesville, IN
Georgetown, IN
Floyds Knobs, IN
Memphis, IN

We don't mind commuting, my husband works in Lexington now, but out of a Louisville office. I homeschool our kids, I'd still prefer a safe neighborhood, but school quality isn't our top concern. I'll look at Indiana, too.

Will he need to be close to both Louisville and Lexington in the future?

Sorry for the delay. He will need to be able to get to either one. We want to stay under 200k, hence the "large yard" comment, incase an acreage is just not in the bidget.

Again, I highly recommend Southern Indiana. I listed a few towns earlier in the thread, and for your budget, it's definitely the most bang for your buck. You will have no problem finding a nice home, with some land.

Plus it's still an easy drive to Louisville from all the towns I listed
