I always recommend that a buyer have representation from an agent. Realtors work with negotiations all the time and know what is reasonable, what areas you can negotiate for a little more. They can look in on the transaction with a neutral set of eyes, it is easy to miss things in the excitement of buying a new home. There will be many excellent reasons given by realtors in response to your question. Feel free to contact any of them that reply or I can make a few recommendations for you if you wish.

Let me also say that sometimes a builder will try to discourage people from obtaining representation, by stating that you will have to pay the commission. Any reputable builder will be familiar with working with clients who have buyers agents. Personally if they tell me this I would find a different builder.

Good luck!

Hi Ezrideolg,
The first thing you should know is that by law real estate agents are not allowed to discuss what areas are "safe" and what areas may not be considered "safe." This is to prevent discrimination. The best thing to do is check out City of Norwalk Police Dept. records for crime in each neighborhood. You can also spend some time in any neighborhood and speak with homeowners. Real esate agents are your resource to assist in seeing all homes on the market, determining which homes are priced correctly or overpriced and assisting in securing top home inspectors, attorneys, mortgage brokers and other professionals to help with your purchase. Any real estate agent that offers opinions about which neighborhoods are "safe" is violating the Fair Housing Act. Best, Mark ... more

It's all about the school districts, the crime rate and the makeup of the neighborhood. Check out the ratings of those elements in the specific area.

The best way I can help you is to tell you to research the area. You can check out the schools by googling them, reviewing them on the county school website and checking the crime rate with the county sherriff or local police station. It is very difficult for a Realtor to answer the question is this area safe? because situations change, people move in and out, and we are required to be as unbiased as possible about every home we show. You are doing the right thing to be asking, and I believe you are determined to find a great place for you and your daughter. Keep it up. I would suggest finding a great Realtor in the area to help you located the right rental for you and your family. If you would like the contact information and name of a Rental Agent in the area, just send me a message on Trulia or email me directly at I would be happy to help you find help.

Hi Billy,

Each part of Los Angeles is very very different. If there is a specific area in Los Angeles you are referring to, I would suggest you contact the local police department and ask about that zip code or just do a google search about crime in that zip code.

Please let me know if you have any other real estate related needs or questions!

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.

Hello Patti!

It can either be one person, or all persons living in the home who meet the 55 and over requirement; it really depends on the By-laws of the community. Here in Desert Hot Springs we have homes that qualify both examples.

You usually find that the behind gates communities tend to be more supportive of all residents being 55+, while more open communities that are senior tend the other way. I hope this helps you; I would hope that you have a Realtor like myself who knows the community well help you find the right home in a Senior community or otherwise. Have a great evening!

Thank you for asking the question as it is imperative to know the proper steps. The very first is to connect with a lender.

If you'd send me an email where I can forward you the booklet, it will be beneficial for you no matter whom you hire to work with you.

Sarah Moore answered:
When looking in areas, what is most important to you? Just the travel to Buckhead? Are school systems important? Do you want a single family home or are you looking for a condo/townhome? This is a pretty open ended question and having a conversation with a Buyer's Agent would benefit you. A 30 minute consultation could help you save hours down the line. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about purchasing in Metro Atlanta,

Hi Lauren,
Depends on where in Long Beach you're considering and the size. It's good to invest in real estate, best to invest in 2+2 units and with as little deferred maintenance as possible. Is that likely to happen for 100k or less? No. Why hold for 7 years specifically? ... more

Hi Murphy Law

East Arlington, which borders Cambridge and is an easy 15/20 minute bus ride to Harvard, is an excellent option for you as it meets all of your criteria. There will also be some good properties to consider in Cambridge. You will get more for your money in Arlington than Cambridge. Both Arlington and Cambridge are among the top markets in the country right now and you can't go wrong parking your investment dollars in either one.

We can discuss this further if you wish and go over the market and buying process in detail.

Tyler Willis answered:
Because REALTORS are not considered professionals in the knowledge of crime rate we cannot legally speak on statistics. I would recommend contacting the local police. Whenever I show homes to clients I like to make sure that we see a number of homes in the same location. That way a person can get a pretty good feel for the neighborhood and see what their comfort level may be.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me anytime.

Gene Riemenschneider answered:
Best is a really subjective question and is the one that gets agents into trouble. A lot of it depends on your lifestyle, values and the things you want to find in a community. Brentwood is in my opinion the best community for me. There is a quality of life in a city that is healthy financial. decent schools and good police force. Lots of things to do for my family. Best of all it is affordable compared to other communities in central county.

Other people feel it is too expensive compared to Oakley or Antioch. There are people in Central County who feel East County is too far away for them. It is very subjective.

Please contract me if you have any questions. I am a Brentwood Broker.
