River Park – 14.28%

Avg Home Price – $86,004

Located just inside of Man O War and bounded by Appian Way and Armstrong Mill. This neighborhood was built in the 70’s/80’s and is comprised mostly of single family ranch homes.  The typical home is 3 bed 1 bath with a brick exterior and a large lot.  I believe that this neighborhood is appreciating due to investors “flipping” homes in the area.  Here is a video of a flip I sold just around the corner in Tatesbrook: Renovating Lexington – Tatesbrook Flip Project

Woodhill – 13.9%

Avg Home Price – $51,891

Woodhill is located at the corner of Richmond Road and New Circle, bounded by Palumbo. Similar to river park the neighborhood was built in the 70’s/80’s and is comprised of mainly 3 bed 1 bath ranch homes with brick exteriors.  Also, there are several apartment complex’s and townhouses.   I believe that this neighborhood is appreciating due to it’s location.  It is close to downtown, Hamburg and there is new construction occurring nearby which creates upward pressure on pricing.

Lakewood – 11.74%

Avg Home Price -$1,017,269

Several parcels in Lakewood are waterfront and back to the reservoir. Making them some of the few water front homes in Lexington.  This is reflected in home prices as you will be unlikely to call Lakewood home for less than $1 Million.  I believe these homes are appreciating as they are an enclave of newer construction in the 40502.  Built in the late 80’s to early 90’s, they offer modern floor plans that other homes nearby don’t share.

Kenwick – 10.72%

Avg Home Price – $192,387

Located close to downtown, Kenwick is one of Lexington’s first neighborhoods and has a lot to offer. First, it has a great proximity to downtown and the quickly developing S. Ashland/National Ave.  area. (Think Blue Door Smoke House, Local’s, National Provisions, & Crossfit Maximus)  There has been a good amount of investor activity recently and this is one of the more reasonably priced neighborhoods close to downtown.
