Good Afternoon Lulu,

As my fellow Realtors stated below, New Springville/Heartland Village are very conventiently located to Public Transportation, Shopping, Expressways, Bridges, etc.......

I would recommend "googling" the address or SI Crime Stats to get the statistics of crime in the area and make a determination if it is a safe neighborhood for you. I took the liberty of doing so and it seemed that you had to pay a fee for some of them (around $9.99) this $10 investment will give you peace of mind to purchase a $180k home.

I have not personally toured this unit but from the pictures looks very well maintained. The price determination would be based on the market and the buyers and sellers dictate that value.

If you would like to set up an appointment to see the home I would be happy to assist you. I can be reached at 718-612-4924

Best Regards and Good Luck,

Judith McKenna

In order to determine a fair offer, review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests and go from there. When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
