Community of Louisville, KY

Louisville offers all of the amenities of a major city: shopping, dining, lounges, museums, and the exciting energy of city-living. There’s no mistaking that it’s a much different experience than living in the suburbs and sprawl. But for all of its city qualities, Louisville still manages to partly feel like a small town. And that is mainly due to the awesome people who keep this a close-knit community instead of turning cold. Whether you’ve lived here your whole life or just a few months, you won’t be able to go to the mall without running into someone you know and it will begin to feel like everyone you meet knows someone you know. With a ton of families, parks, and people who look out for each other, it’s a great place to raise a family. And with a ton of excitement, things to do, culture, and growth potential, it’s a great place for singles. Living in Louisville literally has the best of both worlds.

One of the joys to living in Louisville is that along with everything that it has to offer, it’s still an incredibly affordable city to live in. Based on the national index, Louisville’s cost of living is 7.8 points less than the national average. That’s because across the board, life is cheaper here including everything from groceries to utilities and healthcare. But housing is probably the biggest of all. The median home value in Louisville is $139,400, which is an astounding 23.2 percent lower than the national index.
