Mr. Millard,

What an interesting question. This is an important variable that should be answered to a buyer's satisfaction BEFORE they make a purchase decision. How do you discover the answer?

First, your question covers quite a large geographic area, with many communities, and differing socio-economic data.. Start out by checking census bureau data. Searching the internet will certainly uncover many comments and evaluations, some objective, some subjective. Check out the schools, crime reports using unbiased resources. Read reviews and comments from the public with a grain of salt - who knows who those folks really are? They could have agendas promoting either a positive or negative point of view.

If you are looking for a home in any of these areas, your best bet is to spend time in each of them. Visit the neighborhood delis and fast food markets, as well as the grocery stores, and small shops, diners, eateries. Talk to the patrons and the folks who work there. Once you think you've found an area or two that meets your criteria, focus your home finding efforts there. And, once you've found a home or two that you are seriously considering, be sure to take the time to talk to the neighbors. They will provide you with a wealth of information, and if they don't, or, they aren't friendly and respectful, well, maybe you should consider looking for a different property to purchase.

If you are seeking a home in any of these areas, I wish you good luck! Just remember that you must do your own due diligence before making such an important purchase. ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THESE EVALUATIONS. I encourage all my clients to do their research first. I can then help them find homes in their targeted areas of interest. It will speed and enhance the entire process.

If you are looking for a home in these areas, then I wish you good luck!
