Home to The Kentucky Derby, a mile-long bridge across the Ohio River, the Louisville Slugger, and numerous stadiums including Slugger Field, KFC Yum! Center, and Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the city of Louisville, Kentucky has once again been labeled as one of the top ten most affordable big cities in the U.S. by popular news-sources.
Largely influenced by recent ratings by Forbes on affordability, Entrepreneur.com on enterprise, and CNNMoney/Fortune on high chances of advancement, The Simple Dollar rated Louisville as fifth on their list of Top 10 Most Affordable Big Cities In The U.S.
The Simple Dollar appraises Louisville for its apartment pricing, which amounts to $135 less than the average one-bedroom apartment in the States. Houses also meet a cozy $168,600 median in Louisville. The city has much to be commended on and hosts a plethora of sites and attractions including its steamboat and balloon races, along with its annual Derby Kickoff, which brings in over one hundred military aircraft to perform before the Nation’s largest firework display.
Whether you’re new to Louisville or have lived here your entire life, accolades such as this one reinforce why we all have come to call Kentucky home. I have lived in Anchorage for many, many years, but have experienced various neighborhoods all over the city and in surrounding counties through individual custom home projects. Although Louisville is bursting with beautiful architecture, nothing can compete with the dream home you’ve envisioned in your mind. If you’re ready to talk about building a custom home in one of Louisville’s affordable neighborhoods, I invite you to contact me to get the conversation started. With more than 40 years in the custom home business, I can help you become a permanent part of this emerging city.
