Is this a good neighborhood?

We aren't purposely avoiding the question, but some details about a neighborhood violate the Fair Housing Act, which was enacted in 1968 to eliminate housing discrimination. The law protects against discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability or family status. In particular, it prohibits any real estate professional from steering prospective homebuyers or renters toward or away from a community based on any of the classes under federal protection. 

However, here are some ideas about what you can do:

1) Visit the places your'e interested in at different times of the day. 

2) Stop and chat with residents in the area.

3) Ask people in the groups you want to be involved with once you move-- be that your co-workers, a political group, church body, or school teachers.
