I would be happy to send you a school and community report of this area. This would give you some insight into the crime rates, schools, and other interesting community features. My clients have often found these reports very helpful when wanting to learn about a community!
I am very experienced in this area, and would be happy to tell you a little bit more about which specific areas I'd recommend, and what type of home you can expect to get there. With the current lower prices, lower interest rates, and the Home Buyer Tax Credit (of $8000) expiring next month, now is a great time to get going right away.
Please feel free to contact me directly for more information, and be sure to ask me for the School and Community Report I mentioned!
