Greenwich, NY is a very nice town. They have a Hannaford, video store, Kmart, McDonalds etc. They have a great sense of community, and everyone comes out for the farmer's markets etc. There are some very nice houses for sale as well. I hope this helps. ... more

Waitsburg schools are outstanding and the pace of life is easy. There is a wide range of housing available and there should be more in the near future. A 3/2 modular should be in the $130k to $180k range depending on in-city or more rural. An older home 3/2 or 3/3 should be available from $150k to $450k depending on quality of amenities and location. My family (no children) moved here just over a year ago and we love it. Bring on the kids!

Reba,
This is not a question a Realtor or for that matter anyone can answer for you.

The ceiling tile could possibly contain asbestos. To know for sure you will need to have them tested. Use an asbestos inspector licensed by Texas Department of State Health Services. In the meantime, it's best to leave the material undisturbed. ... more

Wrong source!
Realtors are not allowed to comment on Crime, Race, Religion, eyc.
Whether we comment negatively or positively, we can be accused of "steering" which could mean our license.
You should contact your local police for information.

Jo Shaner answered:
Germantown is desirable for most folks, but before you put all your eggs into one basket, you may be happier to get an assessment of your needs. We have several other areas that might be equally appealing.

Let say you are wanting a 5 year or less 4 BR 2.5 bath with a 3 car garage for $300k.........it does not exist in G'town. That order would start at $450k and there are only 2 right now. Get my drift.

However, it is not to say, that Collierville, Lakeland, Arlington, or E. Memphis might have what you are looking for. Also, what your wish list might be.

Furthermore, enlist a savvy agent, because areas can be very deceptive. You may think you are in Germantown because of a street name, such as Germantown Road or Germantown Parkway. Very little of either streets are actually in Germantown -go figure.

Strange....

I go to Lake Merritt quite frequently since my folks live in a high rise directly across the Lake. I have never thought nor seen it as "dirty". The City takes very good care of it and have made improvements by the addition of running paths, gardens, parks, lights. There are so many people taking advantage of this place as evidenced by the number of folks walking, jogging, boating.

It's a fabulous place to be. Take time to enjoy it....dine at Lake Chalet, or take a gondola ride.

Ellen Lynch answered:
Oakland already IS Brooklyn! The area from lower Park Blvd to lower San Antonio is on the old maps as Brooklyn. It tried to succeed from Oakland a long time ago. If you look on property records, and do some research about Oakland, particularly through The Cultural Heritage Survey,,, headed by City of Oakland's own historical expert Betty Marvin bmarvin@oaklandnet.com , you can learn a lot about Brooklyn, in Oakland.

Many of us were part of the Brooklyn Neighborhood Preservation group, that planted trees, worked on neighborhood issues, etc. and, that group will be starting up again!

Many of us still call our area of Oakland, Brooklyn! As someone born and raised in New York, (along with a lot of Oaklanders), I love this! I've lived here, in the Brooklyn area of Oakland for thirty five years.

Our area, just east of lower Park Blvd, has always been culturally diverse, with lots of community-involved folks. Now we have a few cafes and the great Champa Garden restaurant.

Oakland is still the most diverse city in the entire country!
