Mary, I lived in PRP for 5 years before recently moving. The values seem stable and I really enjoyed the general atmosphere. You can find out EVERYTHING about schools, shopping, churches, dining and much more by going to www.LouisvilleMarket.com and entering the 40258 zip code. You will also see homes listed and recently sold in the area complete with their MLS listing and photos.
For crime information, you can search http://louisvilleky.gov/MetroPolice/ and clicking USE METRO WATCH.
I have sold many houses in that area and would love the opportunity to work with you.
