I am looking to relocate possibly to Louisville, I'm a single mom with 2 kids, my eldest son is on the autism spectrum but high functioning to a point (he cannot handle public school large classrooms). Right now both kids go to a private school with a low child to teacher ratio and almost an open learning environment, they have the typical needed classes science, math, reading, writing, etc, also music, art, shop, animal center, and good field trips to places like the biosphere, weather station, Bisbee mine, etc. I like they are actually doing teachable field trips. is there anything remotely like that there?

Right now for work I clean houses under my own LLC, so I can work anywhere for anyone. In Tucson AZ I can charge $35hr, typical personal house cleaner here gets $25-$45hr, how much do personal house cleaners make there?

Housing, 3bd 2ba under 180k

neighborhood environment: Low Violence, Close to parks. I like the older style homes. I am looking at a house near 22nd and West Hill st on Gaulbert Avenue is that an okay neighborhood?

-Community amenities important to me: Close to parks, Grocery stores, pet shops, - we have 2 dogs, 2 ball pythons, 7 rats, and 8 tarantulas... i need a good pet shop near by, not just petco if i can help it.

Pie.

Homes around there go for around $45,000 and under. Many under $25,000. And for a reason: it's not known to be a safe area. Shootings can be a common occurrence in that area. If you're looking to spend $180K and under you're going to want to look in areas that have less crime. For that amount of money you could find better neighborhoods in Shively, Valley Station or Pleasure Ridge Park. Or, move to Floyd or Clark County and for $150,000 and under be in some very safe neighborhoods with no violence.

Agree - southern Indiana is going to be the best bet for this budget and safety aspect. New Albany would likely be the best.

There are alot of homes under 180k in good areas, even near downtown. Irish Hill would be good for the OP if she likes older homes. Ditto Phoenix Hill or Paristown

West of 9th street has too many dangerous streets to consider. It's not all bad, but too dice with lids.
