Location, location, location! River Ridge has always been a great community. Many buyers look in River Ridge. It can be looked at as a small town since there is dining, shopping, etc. within a short distance including schools. My daughter and her family have just built a home in River Ridge. There are different areas which include higher priced homes and lower priced homes, just depends on your price range. When you find a home you are interested in, there is a neighborhood check that can be done. From what I'm seeing now, prices may drop slightly before they go up again. If you are not working with a Realtor, send me an email and I will be happy to forward more info to you for the River Ridge area.
