This is a question we are asked often – what is the neighborhood like? And we can’t answer that. This is a “Do not pass go, do not collect $200” question. There are a few reasons why…..
- It’s illegal since this can be considered steering which is against federal Fair Housing Laws (go here to read up on what Fair Housing laws are and your rights).
- What I think is an awesome neighborhood might not stack up to your criteria of what makes an awesome neighborhood, a place you feel safe or where you wish to raise a family.
- I can’t tell you what makes you feel safe. You’re the only person that knows your feelings and experiences.
There are a few places that you can get facts and unbiased opinions though. The local police/sheriff’s departments and a couple different websites. Talk to officers and ask where they raise their families, areas that they see a lot of criminal activity occur.
We want to help you any way that we can – legally and ethically.
