Will be relocating to the area due to fiancee's new job and will be looking for housing and a job for me. We're in early 30's, no children but would like a single home in a 'smaller' neighborhood? Close enough to the city to travel for work but far enough that I don't feel like I'm living in the city. Can't spend too much on a house as I don't have a job yet in my marketing field. Any feedback would be appreciated! Will be visiting weekend of May 7th to look around....Tx!

Lots of small towns around Louisville. I live in Mt. Washington and I definitely feel the separation from the 'big' city. It takes about 10 minutes straight up Bardstown Rd to get to the Gene Snyder (I-265) (there's almost nothing along that stretch of Bardstown Rd). After that I can be in downtown Louisville within about 15 minutes or just about anywhere else worthwhile in that time. I don't worry about leaving the car unlocked or sweat it if I forget to lock the house and I love this area for that. The prices are reasonable too. You can buy a 3 bed, 2 bath, house less than a decade old in the $130's here. You can spend a lot more too but I'm amazed at how much there is to choose from out here for under $200k.

Most of the other small towns that really feel like 'towns' are farther out along the interstates. If you don't mind that I recommend looking along the I-64 and I-71 corridor rather than the I-65 corridor.

Thanks, that's very helpful! We will have to drive around the area when we go down for our visit and I'll have to do a little more researching on what might be available!

You're welcome. Take a look at a map and if you want to know anything about the towns or neighborhoods around here this forum is a terrific place to get the local perspective on them.

So do you actually want to live in Louisville, or outside it?

I'm a big fan of the Jeffersontown area...close enough to downtown (20 minutes...i drive to work everyday)...yet far enough to feel like a true suburb. I'm a physician and I feel safe coming home at 2 am.. I know of a few homes on the market in the 200-220K price range in this area...mostly 3 bedroom/2 bath.. let me know if you are interested. Good luck with your search.

I'm not sure if we want to live in Louisville or outside of it. Will be driving down this weekend to drive through neighborhoods to see what we like. I've heard Old Oldham might be nice - we will be looking for a house probably starting next week or so.

It is great you are coming. However, without a good realtor, it is impossible to give the entire metro area a fair shake in just one weekend, but I suppose you know this. You couldn't even cover Louisville's Indiana suburbs in that amount of time (and I bet you didn't even consider these areas but a few may be worth looking at in addition to the majority of the population which resides on the KY side. )
