Desirable, Crime, Safety and such are actually answers that you have to find on your own becuase of certian guidelines that Real Estate Brokers have to follow. We are not allowed to describe what is desirable or crime/ saftey in an area or bad things happen to us, such as loosing our Real Estate license.
What we can do is help you find the information that you would need in order to make your decision on your own based off of facts.
I would contact police departments in the area to obtain lists of crime rate/ types of crimes commited.
Here is a link to greatschools.net that provides information on school districts and $$ spent per student
Good luck to you and I hope it all works out great!
