I don't know about Louisville, but I have some friends who
live in Lexington, which would probably be pretty close in
amount. One pays $750 a month for a two bedroom apartment in a decent
part of town. She has two roommates. The other pays $950 for
a two bedroom apartment in a nicer, newer area. It's just she
and her husband there. I have no idea about their utilities.
I'm about 45 miles from Lexington, and our phone, cable, gas,
water/sewer, electric, and trash pickup runs about $350 a
month. I'm in a rural area, and I know that we pay less than
most places. (My house payment is more than $100 less than
the friend with two roommates.)
I did have friends in Louisville years ago. They both worked
IN Louisville, but they had an apartment just outside the
metro area, and it was much less expensive.
