It is not difficult. They have street lights and cross walk areas where the traffic must stop for a red light.

The only way to search for ANY type of home is to hire a REALTOR as your Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to create a search in the local MLS that has the most updated listings. FYI -- the listings you find here on Trulia or other sites like Zillow or Realtor.com are usually under contract. (If you're searching in the Denver metro area). We're in a HOT sellers market. Trulia NEVER shows a home as being under contract. For example, I sold a home in December and it's still showing as active today.
If you're not working with anyone yet, I'd be happy to help!
