How is Five Points area in Hamilton?

Asked by Dstanca, 08550 Thu Oct 1, 2009

We are looking at a place that is near Five Points in's near Our Lady of Sorrows Elementary school.

We're not concerned about the schools since we don't have kids. We're more concerned with the area as a whole: how safe it is, how the resale situation is, what the reputation is, etc.

We live in Mercer County so we're somewhat familiar with the area - we just don't know that specific area.

We're first time home buyers so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It is always good to spend some time in an unfamiliar area. Go out to lunch, talk with neighbors, stop by the police department, etc. We all have different views of what we like or dislike.

How did your search end up. A lot of times it is easier and more rewarding to take a drive and either visit some of the properties with an agent or cruise around the neighborhood. A lot of times all of these areas are very subjective to each individual.

the neighborhoods across the street from our lady of sorrows are fine. There is no crime and a real sense of community, houses are older and many have tons of character. Both of these things you wont find in a new development. Only bad parts of Hamilton are those bordering Trenton (same can be said of lawrenceville) neighborhood is quiet and convenient to everything, drive through any weekend and you'll see families outside playing. Is it West Windsor or Robbinsville no, but then it doesn't cost nearly as much either. Don't stress 90% of Hamilton is fine. Good luck in your search.
