There are online sites were you can search for sex offenders in the area. In Columbus GA, here's a start.

what I am most curious about is how much this home, 3 BR/2 BA is renting for $850/month. Wow. In my neck of that woods, that will get you a 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment. Real estate truly is local.

For this property, see the property management website http://www.columbusgarentals.com/rentals.html?uid=18351857. It says the rent is $875/mo, with $850 deposit.

Good luck to you.

Neighborhood
Real Estate Agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a Real Estate Agent. Visiting the area and making your own determinations about what is best for you is the way to go.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)

Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a Real Estate Agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include:

If you are interested in SEX OFFENDERS, then you know how to do the research:
Realtors cannot comment on that, nor Crime, nor Race, nor Religion...
If we comment at all, we can be accused of STEERING and lose our license.
