Louisville zip code among the 'hottest' in the country

Louisville ZIP code 40205, which includes all or parts of such upscale neighborhoods as Seneca Gardens and the Highlands, has been cited as one of America’s “hottest ZIP codes.”

The recognition comes from Realtor.com’s economic data team, which, for the first time, has released an analysis of the country’s “hottest ZIP codes midyear” and has put the local 40205 area in the 25th position.

The ranking is based on how quickly properties are selling and how frequently homes for sale are viewed on listings in each ZIP code.
