Hi,

I am set to move to the Louisville area in the next 3-4 weeks from Atlanta, GA. I received a great job offer I couldn't turn down, and now the move begins. I am moving with my fiance and 3 tiny dogs (<12 lbs each), and we have been searching desperately for a house to rent close to downtown. Most apartment complexes only allow a limit of 2 dogs (regardless of size), so many of them have been checked off our list.

Here's my problem. Immediately following my last day at my current job, I will have approximately 6-7 days to go to Louisville and find a home. We've been doing our research on craigslist, rentalhouses.com, and the various local Louisville classifieds. We have found some we like, but the variety is pretty slim as we are trying to find a duplex/house east of I-65 (Highlands, Germantown, St. Matthews), about 1000 sq ft. in the $700-$900/month range.

I guess my question is, are there a lot of rental homes in Louisville not listed online? Any suggestions about how to handle relocating in such a short time period would be more than appreciated. Thanks!

Go to the Courier-Journal (local newspaper) and search there. I'm a local Realtor and I can tell you there isn't a really good database of rentals anywhere. WWW.Courier-Journal.com classifieds is as good as anything you're going to find. The dogs are going to be an issue. As a landlord myself (sorry, I don't have anything vacant), most property owners are leary of that many pets. If you offer a higher damage deposit, you may put someone in a good mood and get a positive result.

If you want to stay close to downtown AND keep your budget at that price point, you may have a hard time in most areas such as Highlands, etc.

I'd personally suggest you check out Southern Indiana. You can get some much cheaper there and have a quick commute to work - Just take the 2nd street bridge straight into downtown, bypassing the interstates completely!

Getting ready to move up there this coming week. We ended up driving up last weekend, and finding a 3 br house in the Cherokee Triangle for under $1000/month. Thanks for everyone's help!

Glad you found somewhere. Cherokee Triangle is a great neighborhood and Cherokee Park is at your disposal, which you all and your dogs will enjoy. Welcome to Louisville.
