Visit a neighborhood several times to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, 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.

Due to Federal law, real estate agents are careful not to discuss the racial makeup of neighborhoods as it could be seen as 'steering' a potential client towards or away from a specific neighborhood. The fines for such illegal activity are $10,000.

Your best bet would be to talk to a local agent about your specific needs.
