River Ridge Real Estate

 River ridge is going to extend from Harahan to Kenner along the Mississippi River. The area is much like Harahan except River Ridge is not a city but an area of Jefferson Parish. The lots are going to get bigger along with the homes. There are many large homes on large treed lots. the prices are going to range from 140k to a milloion and more. There are not a lot of defined subdivions except for Paradise Manor. Hazel Park is the local publis school. John Curtis school is located in River Ridge. The area features an easy commute via Earhart extension, Jefferson highway, or Airline highway. The area is beginning to have a number of teardowns where the lots are a little larger. The country feel near the city with ever increasing land values. Primarily a residential area with businesses along Jefferson Highway. There is finally several good places to eat because Elmwood Shopping area is so close. The creeks apartments are a big drawn to the area, very large complex  near Elmwood.
 

 I do a lot of my business in this area because I live in Harahan. I have seen most of the homes that were for sale in the area so I know when a great buy comes along. People rarely overpay for properties in this area and nver when they have me for their agent. I know the areas that are prone to flood and the little tidbits that will payoff for you. These areas don't usually have a lot of the nicer homes availiable because people tend to be a little more settled in the area.
