Look on the Pierce County website for crime info, they are broken up over the county site and police department sites.
I would never live off S Tac Way ever! When we were house hunting we saw a few houses around there and no way. Just closed on our house in Spanaway today. It's hard to find areas around here that arent too bad, there are some you just have to know where to find them. We got a great deal on a fannie mae foreclosure. Are you guys working with an agent and lender yet? Mine were great, would be happy to give you their info.
We put a bid on a home in spanaway but it's a short sale takin forever. I am so worried about the gas for the kids goin to lakes and the husband commuting everyday. How much did u pay?I am also worried about bah coverin mortgage and expenses
we got a 5 bedroom for 209,000, our payments are lower than our rent now and lower than our bah by about $200 a month. It's dirty and needs to be cleaned, painted inside and replace the carpets but it was a great deal. We had offered on another place just outside McChord off Spanaway loop and it was 189, 4 bedrooms but we just wanted to be a little further from post. There are still alot of good deals out there, I think the key is working with a good agent and lender. We had worked with another agent an lender prior and they both were horrible. We got a much lower interest rate with our current lender. What areas are you looking in? Have you seen alot of places already? Do you know what type of house you want that will fit your families needs? I can keep my eyes open for you, I got really good at finding properties.
