Hi everyone.

My Husband and I currently live in Northwood, near AH. We are looking to buy a new home. Is Monte Vista a safe neighborhood? How does it compare to AH, TH, Northwood?

How about BelMeade?

Thanks!

They all have thier ups and downs. Different styles, different people. They are all safe. I would say about the same across the board.

I know a lot of folks there and they love it. I also helped a young single girl buy a great home in there that wasn't even on the market and she feels very safe

I have lived in Northwood, TH and MV and now back to Northwood.

The only time I have ever been robbed was in MV. Schools are poor. Everyone i know pays tuition elsewhere.

Thanks for your honesty. WilGar.

I found a crime map on trulia. MV is in the green to yellow regarding crime, meaning low to medium while all of northwood is green, meaning low crime. Also, the homes are sitting on the market for a long time at MV. I did see the schools had poor rankings.

SOME of the homes in MV are sitting for a long time. There are a lot that are being snatched up pretty quickly. The problem with looking on sites like Realtor.com and the like is that when a house goes under contract, it disappears from the web, so you only see the ones in there still for sale, and not the ones that sell quickly. MV always sells pretty well. As do the tri-cities.

Most people in the area send their kids to private schools. Lots move there because of it's proximity to some great ones.

There are great private schools for boys in Monte Vista: San Antonio Academy and St. Anthony's.

Keystone is also there.

One plus is that some of the houses are actually bigger than what can be had in AH and Northwood. Terrel Hills has big houses too!!!!
