Finding the right neighborhood is something that I am currently struggling with. Right now, I am in the process of moving from one state to the next and the biggest challenge that I am dealing with is finding out which neighborhoods are safe – are you have a similar problem? Well, I can help you, for I have experience now.
One thing that you need to do is make sure that you research. There are a ton of different websites out there that are designed to tell you everything about the specific neighborhood. For example, there are tons of stats of the types of people that live there – how safe it is, what goes on there and those have been a HUGE help for me.
Another thing, make sure that you touch base with some real estate agents. You tell them what you need and want and they will be upfront and honest with you!
