The best website for information about Towns and Cities is

The site collects information from all sorts of statistical reviews, including US Census Bureau and other US Government Agencies and aggregates all that into an easy to use page listing for any given town, city or zip code.

The best way to find information, is by visiting the area more than once and at different times of day; chat with locals, drive around, possibly dine at a local eatery, check out shops, etc.; also check with the local police department regarding any safety question; research online, etc.

As Egen stated, agents can be a resource to direct you to other sources of information.
For instance, If you ask about crime stats, I can''t give the to you but I can direct you to the county website that does have that information.

If you need to know if a community is child friendly, I can't directly provide that information but I can give you a link to eNeighborhoods that will provide average age of owners and number of occupants per house.

All of these, as Egen stated, are resources to which you can be directed that agents can provide.

If you are looking for information on property in the Clearwater, Palm Harbor, Safety Harbor and Dunedin areas on the Gulf Coast of Florida, I will be able to send you the resouces you need.

Search for homes from the same database I use:

The quick Google for local neighborhood information. The National Census, Real Estate Agents websites, and County/City data will assist you as well.

Hi, I love the website and, they both have great in-depth reports for any area. Homefair has a side by side comparison feature for any area as well.

Actually we(on our MLS in Rockland) do have neighborhood information availble to us. Please consult with your Realtor®

On another note I take offense to the answer below about commissions(illegal to discuss) especially over an internet format. Not very professional!

Hi: There is a lot of information you can find on the internet about your desired towns. But there is also a lot of information that I can provide as a a Realtor. One of the most important pieces of information I can provide is a list of homes that match your search criteria & a method to analyze which one is the best deal. That's what you really need my help with. If you're curious as to how that works, please call me at my office: 914-273-9688. I look forward to speaking with you soon. Have a great day. Sincerely, Michael F. Levy, Principal Broker, Grand Lux Realty. BTW, we're looking for more agents & offer a 70% commission split with no fees. If you know anybody who might be interested, I'll pay you up to $1,000 each for your agent recruits.
