Hello Daveesha,

Real Estate law prevents brokers to comments on various topics. We can however send you a list of specials with "walk scores" and descriptions attached. Please visit the site below and one of our free locators will help you immediately.

Hi Daveesha,
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.

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:

You will need to do some research on your own on that one, as Realtors we can't answer that question. Check with the local police or sheriff department for crime statistics. You can also go to http://www.crimereports.com to check a single address. Also http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/…eighborhoods/crime-rates can be helpful. Good luck.

Most places in the city of Atlanta are not as safe as the Atlanta Metro Areas which surround Atlanta. Because of the city even in the nice areas theft is a problem. This can be avoided by staying somewhere with a security gate & guard and not leaving items in your car but still more risky than Atllanta metro. the best ares in Atlanta metro are Roswell, Alpharetta, Douglasville, Snellville, Duluth, Stockbridge, Fairburn- Fayetteville, Cobb County, Gwinnett County. These are the best areas in my opinion.
