Legally agents aren't allowed to 'steer' you towards purchasing or not purchasing on any specific area or block. The best thing to do is drive through the area to check it out. You can also check out the community stats. You can do some research on the community of West Hempstead itself on the website listed below. If you would like more information about any properties or would like to schedule an appointment to see any, please email or give me a call.
Happy house hunting.

If unfamiliar with the area, do take the time and revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors, etc., then determine if your comfort level can be reached. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
Agents cannot answer your question..... by law anything that could be perceived as 'Steering" i.e. away or into
a certain neighborhood for any reason is illegal. Once you have narrowed down an area of interest you need to
do your own research, on the internet, the schools on their sites, talk to some of the potential future neighbors and ask them what they like about their neighborhood ... or not, and drive through the area at different times or days and get a feel for it and decide if this is the right neighborhood for YOU. Remember that taste and needs are so very different for each person.... Make sure yourself that it is a good fit for YOU!
Good Luck to you!
