I love lists! Can you tell? Some of LHB’s most popular posts are from my Top 10 Lists articles. Today, I’m talking about a recently released Forbes.com list of Best Bang-For-The-Buck Cities for 2009.

Of interest to real estate enthusiasts is the full rankings which shows Louisville’s strong suit to be low real estate taxes. Forbes puts us at 17th best in the country in that category. Future job forecasts look pretty good too at 21. Our current unemployment numbers, however, aren’t as promising with a ranking of 66. The list only includes the 100 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas.
