However, redistricting is much different than busing, and to me, the chance of redistricting is much easier to plan for as a parent, whereas the cross-county busing plans with several clusters of possible schools leaves much more to the unknown.
VERY GOOD!!!! EXCELLENT SUMMATION.

Sure, Germantown (extending up through Paristown) is ideal for that price range. On the upper end of that range, the side streets off of Frankfort Avenue would be a good consideration. Since someone always encourages the suburbs (not necessarily exurbans, since some of these folks have never lived in a city per se), I'll balance that and suggest that gas prices/commuting, foreclosures, and higher crime than in the city make some suburbs less attractive than the area from Audobon to Germantown to Paristown (skip the Highlands--too expensive) to Crescent Hill. Trust someone who thinks you'd make a good neighbor, not someone who wants to just make a buck and cause more sprawl in the process.

Your thoughts were very appreciated until you wrote too much. I appreciated all your input until you with obvious malice wrote "Trust..." Why the anger? You must be angry because a sensible person would not broadly blast without evidence of your argument. Even if you wanted to debate integrity, this was not the thread nor the sub-forum to discuss your personal grievences. People reading threads in this sub-forum want information about Louisville and its Metropolitan Statistical Area.

I will happily discuss your points elsewhere as is and where appropriate. I will openly and genuinely honor your thoughts.

My first post here, so bear w/me. I live off of Southern Parkway, in a modest little home. My son attended Male High, which is at the TOP of my list for good schools.
Most of the neighbors here are cool-heck-a few are even nice (just kidding!)...eveyone is friendly and willing to lend a hand now & then.
I'm looking to sell my home in the near future (for medical reasons) and hope to get between 99,000 and 110,000. I have a very large lot and 2 1/2 car garage but a pretty small house.
I think there are lots of homes in this area that could go for 100,000 or less. It's really going to depend on the market and your personal "must-haves" and what you might be willing to compromise on/can do without.
You need a savy real estate agent and patience. I hope you don't exclude some good deals just to get in Manual's area. There are lots of good schools here!
I wish you & your sons a great life in Louisville!
