If you are not too familiar with the area--visit the neighborhood several times and at different times of day to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from steeringâ€”enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached--then go from there.
I live in the neighborhood and it is really a slippery slope answering your question as a Realtor. Just FYI, I have been here for over 10 years, I have a 6 yr old and 9 yr old. They have a lot of friends in the neighborhood.
