Default Areas in Anne Arundel County to veer away from

I'm looking for a house in Anne Arundel County (Pasadena). Is there any areas that you recommend staying clear from when looking to purchase a home.

I heard Green Haven is one of the less ideal places in Pasadena to purchase a home in. Does anyone have any other places they recommend not purchasing a home in?

Specifically I'm looking for a home in the Pasadena Areaa
Thanks for your help,
Dan

A very rough rule of thumb in the 'dena. if it feeds into Chesapeake Bay MS/HS its probably a pretty good area. If it feeds into Northeast HS, then it might not be so great. Certainly not written in stone, just a very general rule of thumb.

Thanks, agree too, that's why I'm trying to stay away from the GreenHaven/Rivera Beach/Northeast area.

What do you think of Chelsea beach? I've seen a couple of good deals over there and there seems to be multiple listings. That always makes me wary. But I checked it out and the house was nice and the area didn't seem bad at first glance....

Default Pasadena

Live in Pasadena for 30+ years, shoot me an Direct Message and I'll tell you all you want to know. Moving currently from Pasadena to Pasadena (different area), house will be for sale soon. I will agree with the previous post Chesapeake good, Northeast ok. Areas need Ft. Smallwood Park can be sketchy too even though they go to Chesapeake.

There is a reason new homes in Green Haven are $350k and still not selling.

If you can find house that falls within the bodkin elementary school lines that would be a great place. Great schools almost always means a great location.
