Therefore you must do it on your own, by visiting websites, once you narrowed down some neighborhoods,
check their own websites if available, stop by the local police dept. and once you narrowed down a few homes, then feel free to contact some of the neighbors and ask them what they like about their neighborhood.... Better
get informed ahead of time than have regrets later on.... and I always say, areas do change over time, but
asking questions will help you make the initial yes or no decision on various areas. Also drive through the neighborhoods you zero in on, at different times of the day and week, and get a feel for it, and see if it meets your needs, remember everybody's needs are different, one buyer needs a park nearby another one wants a shopping mall or the highway for the commute nearby..... Likes and dislikes are very very personal issues.
Good Luck a happy 2012
