Would you rather come home to a ranch on miles of rolling green pasture or live it up in a condo with a skyline view and easy access to clubs and restaurants? Either way, your ideal living arrangements can be found in Northern Kentucky.
“The thing that’s really fun about Northern Kentucky is, if you drive 20 minutes in any direction, you can have it all,” says Joy Amann, COO of Huff Realty.
Over the past 15 years, job availability in Northern Kentucky has grown by almost 90 percent, fueled by low taxes, two interstate highways, an international airport and a strong workforce, according to the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
And, executive vice president of the Northern Kentucky Homebuilders Association Dan Dressman points out, most people decide where to live based on the locations of their jobs. As the region’s population and average personal income continue to grow, so do its housing, nightlife, dining and shopping options. Along the way, many types of communities in the region are being revitalized.
