Some of these questions a real estate agent can answer for you, but sometimes you want to see the information yourself. I recommend a website called Neighborhood Scout...you can enter the address and it will tell you all sorts of information about the area. You can compare crime rates of the neighborhood vs. the rest of the state, get school ratings, and see appreciation rates. You can also search but items such as the Best School Districts or the neighborhoods with the most families.
Some of the information is free, but some you must pay for. At the time of this blog, the pricing is all the way from $39.99 for a monthly plan to $19.99 a month for 6 months. But it's a great tool, especially if you are moving here from out-of-town or an area you are not familiar with.
