Lee Taylor answered:
Are those really your two main reasons? Everything else doesn't matter as much as those two conditions?

I think I need to state: don't rely on the representations of anyone on this website, especially me

Actuarial people figure this stuff out everday - call a few insurance brokers. Those people live to quote policies.

Define "Atlanta."

Cities like McDonough or Douglasville or Hoschton are kinda sorta like Goldsboro in size and development and "threat level" from terrorists and you know stuff like bombs and all that kinda stuff and some people call them part of "Atlanta."

Are you more worried about street crime?

Well, Trulia's got a very creative beta Crime heat maps research site. Check the web reference.

So, I live in the city of Decatur - about 5 minutes from the CDC and Emory University over in Atlanta, and about 5 minutes from East Lake, Druid Hills and Kirkwood in Atlanta.

All are policed differently.

This morning, in Decatur we have about 25 crossing guards posted at every major intersection by about 730am with "safe streets" walking paths to and from every school - we have walking paths to parks and pools and we have an epicenter with 30+ restaurants. We have MARTA in the middle of it. MARTA has a visible police force and Decatur has probably 6-8 police personnel on the streets 24/7.

We host a 50,000+ attendee Literary Festival every year. Folks are building apartment buildings on the grounds of my office property now. Restaurants keep opening up. Tourists come here everyday - the bridge and tunnel crowd every weekend.

Sounds about as close to as you can get nowadays to TV's Mayberry, NC.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

I would recommend to rent a place until you built up your credit. You also need to study an area you would like to live.

Your question on the Olde Whitehall area of Charlotte is a centrally located place in the southwestern end of Charlotte. it has easy access to highways and major roads as well as shopping and getting just about anything you need.

In terms of answering your question about it beign loud, party area nd the crime rate...well that is a differnet story for a Realtor to answer. We are bound by Fair housing laws and a code of Ethics which preclude us from steering soemone toward a specific neighborhood or away from a specific neghborhood based on race, color, religion, famil status, national origin and handicap. A violation of this can cause a Realtor to lose their liscence forever and face federal charges.

What we can do as Realors is help you find information to help with your descsion and direct you to various website links or suggest where to look to find out the information so you can make a descsion that is best for you...beucase in addition to what the Fair Housing law states one person interpretation of what is safe and loud party area may not be what anotehr one thinks....

for the cirme date I always recommend my clients go to the Charlotte mecklenburg police website. it is From there click on the link on the top toolbar for for your safety and the sublink for crime mapping. Follow the directions and put in the address fo any house you are interested in and it will pull up the cirmes in that area by distance.

Another thing I have done in the past when i moved to places i was unfamiliar with was go through the neighborhood at differnet times of the day and see what it was like and get out and talk to neighbors and see what they think of the neighborhood...

I hope this hleps you and I wish you the best of luck with your move.

Duong Nguyen answered:
Here are the tips to help you find your answers:
Dallas VA Hospital is served by DART Blue line and Bus Route 444.
Trace along the public transportation routes for areas that match your rental or home price budget.
Ask a realtor to help you locate one.
The rule of thumb is the higher the rent or home price, the better the area in terms of good school or low crime. Of course, there are some exceptions here and there.
Good luck!

Irina Bennett answered:
Many buyers I worked with ask the same question. Since, I do not live in all of the neighborhoods I get questions about, so I can not give the up to date info on all of the areas of the Triangle, so I suggest my clients to call local police department (not 911) and ask for the print out of the latest (usually 30 days) activity report for the area of their interest.
I hope it will help you to find out all the info you are looking for.

Margie Salame answered:
Hi Desmondra,
Typically you can call or visit the records department of the nearest police department and obtain the crime statistics for the zip code or neighborhood that you have in mind. You should also be able to go online and find the department of highway patrol's website for the Sex Offender Registry. As a former police officer, I understand the importance of buying a home in a community in which you feel safe. That said, I would still take precautionary measures such as always keeping windows and doors locked, trimming shrubs so they don't afford criminals a hiding spot, and keep a light on in the front and back yards at night. Crime can happen anywhere and you want to take all the measures that you can to reduce the odds of becoming a victim. Last but not least, please guard your personal information very carefully and avoid posting such on social networking sites. Never post and avoid telling others, except a trusted relative or friend, when you are going to be gone from home for an extended period of time. I hope this helps. Best wishes to you. ... more

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
As Realtors we are by law not allowed to give town or neighborhood information about good or bad, as it could be perceived as steering, i.e. guiding clients in or out of certain areas, and that is against the law.
Therefore in order to assist our clients we can only direct them to websites that provide the kind of information they are looking for, encourage them to also visit the local police dept. for further input, and yes I suggest to all my buyers once they have narrowed down an area, neighborhood or town, to drive
through it at different days and times, to get themselves a good feeling for it and to see for themselves
if it fits their needs and life style, and once a home has been identified, buyers should feel free to
knock on some potential future neighbors' doors and ask them what they like about that particular area.

Realtors will be the best resource for what is near and what is not, market value, insights on floor plan
and so much more to make a final decision to make an offer on a home.

By the way the link above is for a public record of the last sale of the home, if you check the link
it says SOLD, this home currently is not on the market for sale. If you are a serious buyer, or at least
thinking that you would like to explore your options, I strongly suggest you work with a local Realtor
who not only will understand your needs, likes and dislikes and find and show you the homes that
fit into your guide lines, arrange showings, give you advice as to upgrades, comparable properties
provide a market evaluation once you are ready to make an offer, negotiate the best price and terms on your behalf, and thereafter guide you with experience and expertise through the entire buying process, paying attention to every detail up to a smooth and successful closing.

If you need the recommendation for a local Realtor in Florence S.C. get back to me and I gladly
send one your way.
Good Luck to you
