Lots. Most of Louisville is blue collar, and near the East End is where a lot of their workplaces are located. You have to go look around though; there aren't vast neighborhoods of nothing but blue-collared workers though. ... more

If you are speaking about Liberty Elementary off of 42 I believe it is closing after this school year. It has outlived its usefulness I read.

Two reasons for me, it has the amenities of a very large city but the feel of a small town.

And it is a melting pot, I love the people.

Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time
I answer questions about financing real estate based on my decades of experience dealing with mortgage underwriters. This answer is my personal opinion, has not been reviewed or approved by the company I work for. I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.

Yes Camp Taylor is a great place to live. Sits right next to one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Louisville (Audubon Park). Pretty centrally located so you can get to airport, downtown, east end etc quickly. Joe Creason park sits right there and the Louisville zoo about 2 miles away. The prices are great there. Not overpriced like some areas of town. If you have the right agent, you can get a nice house for not too much money in Camp Taylor. And the homes hold their value in Camp Taylor. Avg appreciation rate is 6.68% annually in Camp Taylor. Below is a link that will give you more information on the area, schools, crime, etc. And when you are ready to move into the area, call me and I will work diligently to find you the perfect house anywhere you choose to live!

Mack McCoy answered:
Probably not.

For that to happen, you would both have to either own the house outright, or be able to assume the loan on the other house.

All the best,

It is possible Fred, couple of different ways, the mortgage could be very old, had a credit score and closed all other debts over time, under that scenario probably still has a credit score but it falls below the threshold. Many people tell me they do not have a credit score, what they mean is it is below what is required to be approved for a loan. Although I have seen a few credit reports over the last year that truly did not have a score.

Another way is the property was bought subject to an existing mortgage and never was assumed, and my last idea is the existing mortgage was private money from the previous owner. Did I win?

Louise, there are some drawbacks to selling your property in it's current "as is" condition, though this is always an option. First, you have to evaluate whether or not the property will qualify for financing in it's current condition. If the electric or roof are deficient, you will be severely reducing the buyers that can qualify for your house to potential cash buyers or buyers with a much larger down payment. Pricing the property properly is always the key, and I do agree that getting several opinions will help you be comfortable that you are in the right range. But, make sure that the agents can substantiate the values that they are giving you with actual properties that are listed have recently sold. Don't fall into the trap of hiring the agent that gives you the highest price, because that is the number you wanted to hear! ... more
