Katie and Boyd love raising their kids in Middletown, Kentucky, Louisville suburb. But, they want to experience the hustle and bustle of the big city and decided to split the difference and buy a vacation home in downtown Louisville, just a 20 minute drive from their home in the suburbs. With a budget of $250,000, they're looking for a loft style condo with 2 bed/2bath, an open and updated kitchen and outdoor space. They want a place that's located near the entertainment district and ball field, but within walking distance of the marina where they can dock their boat. Realtor, Stephanie Mattingly, starts off by showing them a 1 bed/1bath condo in Bycks Lofts, a former department store. Listed for $240,000, this place is a block away from the entertainment district. While Katie and Boyd like the exposed duct work, upgraded kitchen and bath and quiet outdoor patio, they are concerned that there are no windows to the outside and that it's a bit small at 1,000 square feet. Tthe HOA is low at $250 per month, but it doesn't have any amenities. Listed for $255,000, second condo is a 2 bed/2bath unit in a brand new building on Main Street. At 1,067, this place is a bit bigger than the first one. The HOA is a bit higher at $288 per month, but it also has a fitness center and party room. Katie and Boyd love the floor to ceiling windows, open floor plan, balcony and roof top deck. But, they're concerned about the noise of Main Street. Listed for $270,000, their third option is a 2 bed/2 bath condo at 1,215 square fet in a former hotel called the Henry Clay. With an HOA of $297 per month, it is a private theatre and ballroom. Katie and Boyd like the hardwood floors, loft space and large rooftop terrace. But, the open floor plan is awkward. With three great options, which one will they choose?
