Since real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods, you should check out demographics/ area statistics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached. Research the area(s) online, visit in person more than once, and at different times of day, look at anything of importance to you, possibly chat with locals, etc., then make a determination....
