Ted, Home Buyer in Cedar Rapids, IA

I am looking for a home in Cedar Rapids and am wondering what parts of town are "less-desirable" than others.?

Asked by Ted, Cedar Rapids, IA Fri Mar 30, 2012

I'm an average blue-collar single guy working in the NW side of town. One example I know of a "less desirable" neighborhood is Wellington Heights. My budget is up to $140k.

Help the community by answering this question:


i happen to have a home that i am getting ready to put on the market, but yet have to find a n agent to work with, but my home is on a cul - de - sac and is in a QUIET neighborhood.

Ted, your question is honest because it isn't right for potential buyers (particularly first home buyers) NOT to know. That is what this forum ought to be for. Another thing is to watch for Real Estate Agents because their bottom line is to encourage you to spend as much as you can to assist in their own income to pay for their own over-priced homogenized location. Remember, "less desirable" comes across the entire board and you really do not want to limit yourself or become paranoid because of a non-law-abiding others who have nothing to do with the those who are law-abiding. It is as simple as that.
