Pensacola is a college town so it's surprisingly diverse for a "small, southern" city. There's a few well known local gay bars and one club. University of West Florida is located here and has an active gay student population/community (Bachelors to Phd programs so good age diversity as well). The community is still small, but is growing. ... more

Whenever an offer is made on a home it must include an Airport Disclosure Form. This will tell you in advance what the patterns will be, if it is Public/ Military, and also rates the noise level.This is easily found by using a parcel id #. Some areas will be heavier traffic at different times of the day.I really like for my clients who are concerned with neigborhoods for any reason to just go to the home at various times of the day and night to see if for yourself.

Hi Bo,

The best way to research noise is to go yourself if possible (best option) :) or have a trusted friend (who would know you well enough to know what you consider to be "too much noise" -- as that is VERY different for each individual, depending on where you've been used to living and the noise in that environment :) and get their opinion. Go at rush hour times, if possible, to hear the most "street noise" and check the train schedule and/or ask neighbors about railroad noise if the property is close to a railroad. (I did not see a property address referenced, but this would be applicable to any property you are considering purchasing.)

The best way to research crime is to go to: and put in the street address of the property you are considering. You can also get to the local law enforcement websites from there. That site will have the most current information.

Good luck to you in your property search, and feel free to contact me or visit my website if you have additional questions.

Since real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods, consider contacting/visiting the local authories and ask all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand; if unfamiliar with the area, do visit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with neighbors/locals, etc. ... more
