You need to understand that realtors and lenders are prohibited from discussing crime, school quality, demographics, religion, etc. because it violates Federal and State Fair Housing laws.

Therefore, you will need to do your own research. As a former realtor I always advised clients to visit or call the local police departments, use the Census Bureau's website - http://www.census.gov, visit the local schools and have the Parent Teacher organization contact you, visit local parks / playgrounds and speak to local residents and be at the local elementary schools during morning or afternoon drop off / pick up when parents are dropping off or picking up their children. Parents LOVE to talk about their school, neighborhood, etc. They will give you the latest information regarding crime and everything else you need to know.

I don't recommend any of the websites that realtors suggest (listed in Sheryl's reply below). These websites get information from either the Census Bureau or other public websites. They are not accurate but just to serve as a guideline. Realtors recommend them because they are so nervous about violating Fair Housing laws and losing their license. So to realtors, this is an easy out.

Hello Gene, if you figure out what cities or zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs?

Hello bobinbaywood, you may have set it up wrong? If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing costs assistance programs?

Scott Godzyk answered:
If your agent does not know how to post a listing as part of their marketing plan, they should ask their broker for training. They can easily sign up for a free account and post your listing to their account. As well there are many more sites it should be posted as well as using an Active Rain blog for marketing your home. ... more

Hard flooring, whether hardwood, laminate, vinyl planking, or tile is preferable to carpet. Carpeting is harder to keep clean and is unsanitary.

Remodeling can be a great way to maintain your property, especially if it's been a long time since the last remodel. Kitchens and baths are key area buyers look and key updates can make all the difference. One sink versus two in the same bathroom may not add value; however, the remodel may help keep your home current with the market in the area. ... more

It is better to get your fixed costs as low as possible in retirement. Better to have no mortgage.
