'Good' ? Its all relative! For ANY area, walk around and talk to the neighbors and ask them...do they like living there ? Does it feel like a community ? Is it near employment centers ? That kind of thing...

I appraised a brand new home where the guy who bought it (and now giving it back to the bank) said if he knew the neighborhood before he bought he would have never have bought a home there. He bought based on a new house and low interest rates, not investigating the area.

And a couple of the highest priced neighborhoods in LA are the worst communities as far as livability - everyone is suing their neighbor over this or that - no one knows or talks to any of their neighbors.

If this is your new home maybe for many years to come, its worth your time to see why (or why not) people like living there. And again, this goes for any neighborhood.
