It's always a little scary moving to a new area, I have lived and sold Real Estate in the Auburn area for way more years than I would like to admit. I have raised my three children here and I have no regrets. I will always live in the area.
Auburn is like any other city in the US, It does have crime, there is no way to avoid what the crime rate is, but you can do your best to avoid being a statistic by doing a little research first.
I would go online and check out the different schools and see how they are rated, you can check with the authorities and ask them what areas seem to have more crime. I would go online and just check out the different neighborhoods and see what is appealing to you and what fits you and research those neighborhoods.
I live close to Lake Land Hiils but not in Lake Land just a little suburb of Auburn and I wouldn't change a thing, I have great neighbors and everyone looks out for each other.
You can go to this web site and check out the areas that you are interested in. http://www.kingpiercecountyrealestate.com
If you have any other questions, I would be happy to answer them.
Answering a question like that is a tough one since what one person thinks is a high crime rate, another might not. I would encourage you to look at facts and figures and then draw your own conclusions. On my website, http://www.TheLizJohnsonGroup.com I have several links to sites that you should be able to find that info on. I could also email you a community report but I would need your email address. If you're interested in the latter, just complete the new contact form submission. Or you can also check out http://www.LakeTappsPropertyValues.com for more info. Hope this helps!
I am located in Auburn and while the statistics may show a higher degree of crime here, I can assure you there are some very nice areas in this city. Just like any town in the United States, there are pockets of good and bad here. The key is finding somebody who is well versed in the nature of the local neighborhoods, somebody who can steer you in the right direction as you would be relying on their knowledge of the area in order to find something you would feel safe and secure in. Please don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com and I would be more than happy to give you some guidance on the city and surrounding areas. Cheers!
They do seem high which surprises me a little. I don't work in Auburn, but more to the North - make sure to look at traffic, too, when you are deciding where to live. You should come out and visit and look at some other reas and find something that you really like here:) If you are interested in Seattle neighborhoods or other suburbs a bit North, I can answer questions on those for you as well. Good luck! Moving to the Seattle area is exciting!!!!
If you need the name of a top realtor in that area, let me know and I will be glad to refer you to a professional realtor who is an expert on that area.
