As a realtor working with someone who is 500 miles away, I can email you all kinds of information in which you can easily determine the answers to any questions you have. I can provide you with information on crime, schools, neighborhoods, home values, potential for appreciation, things you need to know about future development in the area, etc. I just cannot steer you toward a particular area or away from a particular area, and I cannot say which are good schools and which are not so good schools. But if I put the information in front of you, you can easily make that decision on your own. I can do just about as much with you 500 miles away as if you were in the car with me. My website @ http://www.ISellUnion.com
has a wealth of information about the area, which may also be of some help to you. If you're looking for an agent to assist you I'll be glad to help!
