You might check at Kingswood on Westport Road. I know there sign says rents starting at $525.

Also, often individuals with rentals often post on Craigslist too!

Best of luck to you!

This house appears as a rent to own at

The site states that the ad was posted more than 2 months ago. There is a button to click on for interested parties to make inquiries. I suggest you do that. This property was last listed on the MLS in 2011 for 151 days. The asking price was $164,000 when the listing was cancelled.

Call if you have any questions.

Jude Birch answered:
Appraisals are not absolute and have several "parts". You might want to examine the report quite carefully and look specifically at the section on current market value. Compare that section to the realtors analysis - and if the realtor is someone you trust, call and talk about this . . . you want to know what is the current average time on market for properties sold and to weigh the condition of your own home against the market place (the competition - others for sale right now). Also, depending on when you bought the house - the appraisal might be outdated . . . for a purchase right now, a bank would order an appraisal for a buyer and the "comps" would have to be within the last 3 to 6 months only! Unclear about where you are in the process - are you considering selling the house and having this work done ahead of time? or have you listed and sold and now have a low appraisal? ... more

And you are asking US, because you do not believe your Realtor?

But, you are going to believe us Reators?

If the Home is not LISTED; how are you going to BUY it?

I think you are asking for a difficult task because of your price range. Many home owners are staying away from section 8 because of poor maintenance by the tenants. I will keep you posted if I can across any property in your price range. ... more

If your home is being sold by Fannie Mae, the HomePath Renovation Loan could be a solution. Otherwise, FHA's 203-k loan could help. Both allow for monies to be held in escrow to complete the work. ... more

If she is attending UofL, staying on campus should be just as safe as any other campus. To be honest, it's not unusual for there to be bad neighborhoods near any large college campuses in metro areas. College students tend to drive down property values and with low property values, you often get the non-college bad element.

Here is a crime map of Metro Louisville:

You may think by looking at it that maybe there is much heavier crime in the city, but bear in mind that as you get farther from the city that there are other police departments that don't contribute to this site.

I don't see where it's bad for a family with kids. However, judging by what's for sale in that area, I don't see any huge price advantage than other places in the county that might have even more amenities for a family.

Call me if you'd like to talk more about what you are looking for, 396-8195.
