"Know Before You Go...." It is extremely important to exercise due diligence and use the following links and resources to investigate potential neighborhoods, to ensure they are suitable for you and your family. Checking out neighborhood statistics on-line is fine, but it's best to actually drive through a neighborhood during peak hours and lull times to get a feel for the overall atmosphere.
Your Realtor can only provide you the resources. How a neighborhood may work for you, relies completely on your personal research.
