I suggest you strike up a conversation with a taxi driver,they know the area very well,also keep an eye on the court reports,you'll see certain neighborhoods keep popping up.I hope this helps.

I've been an agent for 14 years here in the Mid Cape area and I always recommend a couple of strategies for my buyers. Drive by the area at different times of day and days of week-you can get a good "snapshot" of type of neighborhood you're looking at. Check with local police-they can give you specific info on a particular area. Also check out http://www.crimereports.com that has a lot of info for consumers. Rule of thumb, as in anything else "if it sounds too good to be true..."

I live on the Cape and mostly agree with Walt. I know the Gen. Patton area and it might be considered a little rough around the edges...Just driving around the different neighborhoods can be very enlightening...Good luck with your search and maybe check other towns ,lots of nice places,Hyannis can be a little busy sometimes...

The best way to determine where you would or would not like to live in these areas is to come see for yourself. Buyers experience different concepts and desires when they look for themselves. there is now way for a realtor to tell you what you can experience yourself. Come on down!

It's difficult to immagine a bad area in the Cape. One very valid concern, as you are probably aware, it traffic during the high season. There are areas that could be very difficult to get in and out of. This should be an awareness as well as road noise. As you travel further out on the Cape traffic tends to thin out. Your target area is in possibly the most congested location.

We have been going there for 50 years. Even though there have been major changes, the appeal is still fantastic.

Good luck,
