How do you find info. about your a city's crime rate, neighborhood, flooding, etc...?
I am in the process of finding a house, but i also need to know information about the area or city such as crime rate, the kind of neighborhood, if the land that the house is on is prone to flooding, average age of people living in the neighborhood or complex, school systems, facts like these.
Does anyone know where to find information on this stuff?? I wouldnt want to get a house in a neighborhood that has a high crime rate, high flooding, bad schools, and other problematic statistics.........i am getting married soon, and plan to have kids someday, we would like to get a place in a nice neighborhood, and not something that will have flooded basements everytime it rains or when the snow melts if you know what i mean.
thanks in advance........
