also with Augusta, being a military town, a good guide is to check out the area to see if there are military families living in the area, the military has A list of areas , and establishments which are listed as "OFF LIMITS" for military personnel ...this could be businesses, apartments or housing areas this is done to protect the troops from danger, i.e. bad or illegals businesses, or high crime areas. with this being said, as always there can be a home or street in any neighborhood which can be quiet and safe...if possible get out and visit the area during different times of the day and night, especially on weekends to see what the area is really like
Off Limit Topics Include:
â€¢ Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
â€¢ Environmental Concerns
â€¢ Household Income
â€¢ 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.
