We are officially relocating in late June or mid-July. I have a little time in june to look at some of the areas we have previewed on-line. Any new construction home suggestions? (under 250K)

Anyone have any info on ball homes subdivisions Flatrock Ridge, or Cedar Meadows near McNeely Park. These seem to be new subdivisions with new homes.

We want to be close to shopping and dining.

Also the Mrs probably won't be able to transfer....anyone know of HR related opportunities or employers to check online?

My wife is an HR pro. She wondered if your the Mrs. is looking for admin or clerical? She has quite a list. PM me, please about "MRS".

Regarding home, do you know where your work will be located? Will you go to the same site every day? Buy your home as close to work as practical. Also, if you have children, you'll need to investigate the schools. There are several threads on this site about the area schools.

You may PM me on either matter.

I would strongly encourage you to consider living in one of the outer-counties, Bullitt, Shelby, Taylorsville and obviously Oldham County. If you have children, then I would tell you to investigate the schools systems from top to bottom. I think in all my years of moving around the world, this county is the worst. Schools systems are in disaray, parents are fuming over the new school assignment procedure. The mayor and police are at odds with various issues. Trust me think everything through before you make a decision about Jefferson County.

Flatrock Ridge is a very nice subdivision and is connected to Polo Fields which is an ever bigger neighborhood. You can find some houses in either of these subdivisions for 250k or under. You'll probably have a better chance in Flatrock Ridge. These neighborhoods are located in Jefferson County, but they are very close to the Shelby County line, and you are out in the "country" more, but still 5-10 min. away from grocery stores, restaurants, ect. I personally really enjoy living in this area.

I would look in Crestwood or the East side mainly HWY 22 (Old Brownsboro Rd) area. There are some new construction neighborhoods in both areas. HWY 22 is Jeff county but the elementary schools are great (Chancey and Norton). Crestwood is ideal if you want a little more rural but within minutes of everything. We live off of Hwy 22 but are jumping the county line next year in Oldham. Many people are fine with Jeff county for middle schools but they are going downhill and the huge lack of $$ in the city government isn't helping. Oldham county is consistently the best district in the state (well not including Anchorage but who can afford it?).
