Thanks for posting your question. First, as a Realtor, I cannot mention anything regarding the quality of a specific area, but I can refer you to two great websites for information. First, for crime statistics, look to http://www.crimereports.com.
For information about local schools, try http://www.greatschools.com.
Both websites will help by providing important information about the neighborhood. For more intricate information about the property, talk to one of the neighbors to get a sense of what it is like to live in the area including noise, traffic patterns along Senter and lifestyle.
As for housing, the home was built by Braddock and Logan, a very reputable developer, so from just a housing standpoint, I like the structure and know the quality of the building. The property is currently for list at $518K and is valued closer to $530k based on the comps. The property was previously a foreclosure home sold in 2010 to the current owners by the bank. Based on the pictures, the home is a cute one and there are open houses this weekend.
If I were your realtor, I would suggest moving quickly on this one, and I would discuss several strategies for a strong, quick offer--so make those "talking points" between you and your Realtor if you like this home.
Good luck! This one one is cute!
