Ok... I read the thread about what info. to include when asking about relocating and I believe I answered them all!

My husband and I might be relocating to the Louisville area with his company. He works for G&K Services and they are located on Maple St with a zip code of 40210. I was wondering if you could just point me in the right direction of which areas of the city or suburbs that we should look into. I would like for DH's commute to work to be about 20-25 minutes or less. We have a 10 month old daughter and I am a stay-at-home mom, so we would like a family friendly neighborhood with sidewalks, parks, and shopping close by (I don't want to have to drive more than about 20 minutes to get to the grocery store). I have not yet researched school districts as we have quite a while before she gets to that stage and we are looking to rent at first so we can familiarize ourselves with the area before deciding where to buy.

Also, would you kindly suggest where I can look for houses to rent. I have looked at remax and craigslist, but I'm a little leery of using the latter. We are looking to spend $1000/mo. or less, is this realistic?

Thank you for any help. We just found out today that this is a possibility and if it happens, it will happen relatively quickly so I'm trying to get started researching asap. Oh, and I like pie

I would head out towards Harrison Co. Indiana. Anywhere from Corydon in. It will be a sometimes tuff crossing of the bridge, but generally a good ride and would meet the rest of your needs.

i'm sure this will get ripped by a lot of people on here...but the best website i found to search for homes (to buy at least) was semonin.com. they have great map features that most don't...it was very helpful to me.

good luck on your move.

Spence, why should you get ripped? Semonin.com is a very good local site.
In fact, it was actually better than remax.com until the April 2009 release of the new version from remax which includes listings from more than 95% of all MLS's in the US and more.

Competition is America's greatest asset. The ability to choose what suits us best is why our nation is so economically dominate.

Your hubby is working in an industrial area in the "hood." Not a bad place to work, but not a nice place to live. I disagree with going all the way out to Harrison County, IN. If you want more suburban, look on the North Side of New Albany, IN or Floyds Knobs, IN.

That said, I would look in the city itself for rentals for now. I would live somewhere off Bardstown Rd or Frankfort Ave, near to the Zorn Ave exit on I-71 or the Grinstead or Canons exit of I-64.


Why are you leary of craigslist? it is BY FAR the best way to find rentals in Louisville unless you are willing to drive around streets you like, calling the for rent signs that sit in front yards.

Let me give you some ideas:

Beautiful 2BR/ 2Bath House w/ Fenced yard (http://louisville.craigslist.org/apa/1193666152.html - broken link)

Cherokee Triangle-very clean, refinished hardwood floors (http://louisville.craigslist.org/apa/1168709405.html - broken link)
