Good evening:

Sorry to hear of your loss and hope I can assist you with your relocation. Buckroe Beach is a large beach oriented area within the City of Hampton which contains a great variety of housing possibilities from small single family detached homes to large beach front estates. There also are condos if you would consider an attached home.
If you wish my assistance you may either call me at 757-812-0399 or email me at

YES YES YES YES! Not only has it flooded but my brother & sister-in-law took pictures of all the water inside their apartment and moved out before their lease was up just to get their stuff out of there before it was to happen again. Since they took pictures they were not challenged by the rental agency about breaking their lease. There are certain apartments on the property that definitely experience flooding over by the playground and fitness center area where the grounds seem softer or lower. ... more

People move for different reasons, such as financial, closer to employment, closer to family, downsizing/upsizing, climate, etc., maybe ask a neighbor(s) why they are selling/moving....

As previoulsy stated, this is a question that unfortunately a Realtor can't fully answer. Your idea of a "safe neighborhood for children" may be completely different than my idea or the next person. I wouldn't want to steer you toward or away from a particular neighborhood based on my personal experiences or bias. There are a lot of resouces available, however, to help you make that decision. One thing I highly recommend doing is checking out the unfamiliar area at various times of the day and days of the week. A quiet neighborhood during the day may look completely different on a Saturday night. I also recommend asking neighbors about the neigborhood. If you are uncomfortable knocking on their doors, I can accompany you to accomplish this. You'd be surprised how much good (and bad) information you can find out by asking around. Another resource that you should take a look at is the "Sex Offender and Crimes against Minors Registry":

If a registered offender does turn up in your neighborhood, you may want to ask your agent to confirm that they still actually live there. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. I cover the entire Peninsula area, including Hampton, and I'd be happy to any additional questions.
