Hey guys,

I'm looking to get my first house and I found a pretty good deal on a house on west street in Pottstown. I was just wandering if it's a good area? I don't have any kids, I just don't want to buy the property and have to sit on it for a while. It's right on the corner of west and hale street. I know it's about 6 or so blocks from the "bad" part just hoping to get some info on the area. Thanks guys!

couple things to think about and look at

real estate taxes are really high in pottstown

north of wilson better than south

basically nw of the pottstown ymca

take a look at crimemapping.com i think thats the name, and also theres a facebook page called crime in pottstown or something

the ymca is very nice i love it

i think you are literally a block from the really bad streets at hale and west
