The neighborhood in predominately hispanic, low incoming working people. It is not illegal to state the demographic makeup, it is illegal to discriminate on the best of race. If a realtor become evasive chose another area.

By law no real estate agent can answer a question like that. I suggest you spend some time in any neighborhood and do your own research to see if that is someplace you'd like to live. I am sure there is much information on the internet to help you.

Dear Homy,

I will again repeat, it is illegal for agent to comment on the racial, religious, etc. of any specific neighborhood. Please check the link below from the US goverment and also trulia also has a "Stat and Trends" tab you can utilize on your own.

Good luck.

The National Association of Realtors, state, and federal laws prohibit the offering of any information on the racial, ethnic, or religious composition of a neighborhood or to place restrictions on listing, showing, or providing information on the availability of homes for any of these reasons.

Hi Homy,

As Anna mentioned, by law Real Estate agents have to strictly stay away from this type of question. Also because "kind of people" can be very subjective, only you can form an opinion by actually spending some time in the said neighborhood (driving by, walking...).
If your question is related to crime then you should go to the local police station.

Not too sure if we answered your question. If not you may want to rephrase it.

Do your own homework first--Visit a neighborhood several times to get a sense of “belonging”. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached. Again, drive around at different times of day and check out all that is of importance to you.
