To give you some insight where to get your info...
a) as far as the water quality is concerned - each village usually has a once a year water quality report, so contact them and ask for a copy of it.....
b) once you are decided to buy a property during the inspection process you can have the water quality checked..... once you live there, most villages will come out from time to time to check the water quality, plus you can always install a good water filtration system, there are many different ones in the market
c) what is close to where you intend to buy, once you narrow down a village, subdivision, or neighborhood, put one of the addresses into google, and then add shopping center etc. and see what pops up, usually when you search for a hotel on google map, it also shows other information around the area.....
and if and when --- and I hope you will use the expert services of an experienced Buyers Agent,
their services are usually FREE to you, and paid by the Sellers, so why in the world would you
want to make decisions on a big expense in your life without the guidance of an Expert, protecting
your interests every step of the way, from getting you pre-approved and finding you the right hoem for YOU....
That Realtor then will also be able to find you what is close, and even drive you by if need be.
