    Does anyone know anything about this part of Norfolk?

    Advertisements
    Is this one of those houses that is cheap only because the area is bad?

    If you go to the map, then the satellite image, it shows it being right by the beach. To me, the beach is always a good neighoborhood, but then again something must be making this house so affordable, kwim?

    Any ideas?

    I don't know much about Norfolk, but I would guess that is in Ocean View, which isn't a very good area...

    Yeah, the map shows it being between East Ocean View and Cottage Park, but definitely closer to East Ocean View.

    I wish I had a list of which Norfolk neigborhoods were good, so-so, and bad.

    OV is not the Best area. But there are some areas around OV that can be decent. I used to live in Willobuy. To me its typical Norflk area. I grew up in that area. Its really best if you look at it yourself and drive around. Good Luck

    OV is not that great. Some parts are pretty bad. IMO I wouldn't live anyplace in Norfolk.

    I agree that some of the areas of OV are nice,the majority isn't. And this may be stereotypical to some & maybe I am making an assumption but the majority of the nicer areas are those with the newer houses. IMO that is an older house & you do have a good chance of it not being in the better parts. If anyone does live in one of the older homes & takes offense to my comments, then I do apologize in advance. However my opinion is based simply on the little bit of experience that I did have with that area.

    I hope that helps some! For me personally, I would go ther ein person, talk to some of the neighbors, check the police department statistics, etc.
