I know that most towns have a good side and a bad side of town, but when you are looking online for a place to relocate to, how can you tell the difference?

Thank you for your time and help,
Oneida

You can't officially, but by looking at the price per square foot, you can get a pretty fair area. Obviously asking on this blog is a good step too.

Not necessarily, Northside. My house was $74,000 and you couldn't ask for a better neighborhood. You can't really tell anything online. The best and only way to find out about a house, neighborhood and town is to go and see it personally.

Just remember, it is unlawful for a Realtor to steer people to or from neighborhoods. We can't always answer your questions. Forums such as C-D are excellent places to seek answers.

Never, ever buy a property without a close personal inspection of the area. If you begin to suspect problems, check it out. Go to a local grocery store, drug store, etc and interview shoppers. They'll tell you..

You're right. Looks can be deceiving but for the most part (especially here in Jacksonville, homes that are $125K and under tend to be close to/in the hood.
