Im not sure why a realtor would possibly know salaries of different professions. Perhaps look it up on job/salary websites like Glassdoor?

If you need a realtor to find a house to live in then we could certainly help on that end. 561-771-4457 ... more

Solomon Greene answered:

Peachtree Corners is a charming area in West Gwinnett County. Centrally located between the two areas of interest, it is the county's newest city, is bustling with planned and new developments and is also convenient to the interstates, the City of Norcross (where there are lots events planned through out the year) and more. You didn't ask about schools. Norcross High School is not my favorite, but there are plenty of other school choices nearby.

Read more about Peachtree Corners at the link below and please call with questions.

I have a 3 y old daughter, we found Davie to be close enough to the beach and with nice daycare Christian Academy.
I lived in Weston, I loved too, Plantation is a good area as well, Cooper city has great schools.
So, not at the beach but the areas 20 or 30 minutes away will be a good choice.
Hope helps, feel free to contact me for local advice.

Andrew Carpenter answered:
I'm not sure if that is a question. If you would like help finding a new apartment I would be happy to help you. My service costs nothing to you, I find you a property that you are happy with and the landlord pays me because I brought you in as a tenant. I search and filter out the best results for you to look over. Then I schedule showings and drive you around to apartments to find the one that best suits you.
If you need help with something specific to your landlord and situation I would be happy to help you with that too.

If you are in Sacramento now, just search for rentals in your price range then drive those neighborhoods to see if YOU feel safe there. No one here is going to be able to tell you where you are going to feel safe. ... more

DB, Home Buyer in Fontana, CA
Mon Dec 12, 2016
DB answered:
I've lived in North Fontana for 7 years now and I really don't even notice it's there. It does not smell and there's no trash floating near the facility. I'd bet that most residents don't even know there's a landfill in Fontana. The Northern part of Fontana is growing like crazy and is still affordable. There's something like 30,000 homes planned in the next 10 years and they're all extremely nice developments so far. If you're considering moving I'd focus on communities above Baseline and no further East than Alder - more specifically check out Citrus Heights, Shady Trails and Bella Strada as some of the nicer communities. ... more

Keller Pest…, Real Estate Pro in

Keller Pest Control answered:
You are all wrong in your answer. While its important to get it resolved as soon as possible. Its more important to not be responsible for what could be as much as 1000.00 to 4000.00 cost. Also if not done correctly they will not be eliminated and can easily travel from one apartment to another. Contact your landlord in writing and date the certified letter, require signature from him. Talk to the other tenants to find out who else has them. Getting resolution quickly is not the best answer. Getting it done right and a professional can usually determine how long they have been there based on amount and size of Bed Bugs. It will be important to know how long you have been in the apartment More times than not the landlord will be liable for treatment and possibly damages. Contact a bed bug attorney and get a second opinion from a reputable pest control operator Make sure its a company that deals with bed bugs regularly. Do not use the landlords pest service for the second opinion and inspection You must allow his company to inspect but remember they are working for the landlord not you. Check the laws in your state and contact Government housing resources. You need to be aware if you live in an apartment they can be coming from next door. Its critical to determine the source of the infestation Be quick but don't be in a hurry to get it done. ... more

Michael Ross, Real Estate Pro in Seattle, WA
Sun Dec 4, 2016
Michael Ross answered:
Gentrification is a complex and specific topic. I think you're asking whether Belltown is pricey, upscale, etc. I'm going to answer both ways though:

Belltown was never really a economically depressed, low-income area. It is right in downtown Seattle and has luxury, high-rise condo buildings that were built in the 1980s (so it's been a place for luxury living for at least 30+ years). There are areas of Seattle in which gentrification is in full-swing and is causing property prices to rise dramatically and is displacing long-term residents--Central District, First Hill, Columbia City, and other neighborhoods

From at least the early 1980s to now, Belltown continues to be a popular area for residential living and has seen a number of new, architecturally-cool buildings go up in recent years. There are no houses in Belltown--it's all condo living. A person that lived in Belltown could walk to work just about anywhere in downtown or South Lake Union. They could actually shop on foot for some seafood at the famous Pike Place Market and could walk a few blocks from home to catch a Broadway-quality show. It is truly urban living and the prices reflect that. In a recent rental survey, Belltown was one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Seattle with a one br median rent of $2,595.

What kind of people live there? inside the buildings, people who can afford that kind of housing payment. In terms of age & other demographics, it is perhaps a much more diverse neighborhood than many in Seattle; old and young, many different backgrounds. Outside of the buildings are quite a few homeless people or transients. If you want city living, with all it's pros and cons, Belltown is the place to be.

In my 5 years in Las Vegas I have found that pretty much everywhere around the city is progressive. We have so many different races, sexual orientations, and backgrounds in this city that people aren't usually picked out for being different. ... more
