By the way, we haven't mentioned to you yet, so in case you don't know, Plainview is in the Town of Oyster Bay.

Do some homework of your own first--a real estate professional is prohibited by law of enticing a buyer to purchase, or not for that matter, in specific neighborhoods. Drive through neighborhoods more than once and at different times of day to get a sense of belonging and see if your comfort level can be reached--after all opinions are just thant and what may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another. Check out the public records for the town for any information regarding any concerns you may have.

There is very little that a realtor can tell you legally about one area vs. another, so you may want to do some investigating yourself. There are some nice homes and nice sections either way, so you have to choose the house you like the best. Also, you may want to look into the statistics of the elementary school you will be in, which you can find on various websites. The mlsli website is easy to navigate for that, and there is probably a lot of school district information on the Newsday website as well.
I have worked with various realtors in Plainview, and have done financing on numerous homes in the area. If you would like to contact me to ask any questions in reference to financing, please give me a call. Although my main office is in Stamford, CT, I am from LI.

This is something you can research with the town office...I believe there were only 1 or 2 streets affected years ago and are no longer considered an issue...public knowledge/public information.

Plainview is a lovely place to live.

Let me know if you would like assistance. 631-425-6150
