"Can you recommend this Silver Spring neighborhood?" sounds like an innocent question and it's also a frequent one, especially if you are new to the Silver Spring area. I can't answer that question, however. Whether one likes a particular neighborhood or not is a very personal choice. What may be the right fit for some may not be the case for others.
I cannot steer you to or away from a particular neighborhood, nor do I want to. But I can assist you in your decision making process by providing neighborhood sales statistics, showing you homes in different communities and pointing you to the right resources, ie. the police department for crime statistics and www.greatschools.org for school ratings. I also suggest driving through the area(s) of interest during different times of the day while paying attention to how well the community is maintained.
I can research and show you homes in a particular area if you have narrowed it down to one but I cannot make that choice for you. Instead of relying upon a Realtor's®, neighbor's, friend's, colleague's ... recommendation let the following be your guides: price-range, preferred home-style, proximity to public transportation, schools, neighborhood amenities, proximity to shopping and your gut feeling. Do you have concerns or can you see yourself happily living there?
Can I recommend moving to Silver Spring, MD in general? Yes, most definitely because I love everything Silver Spring has to offer - its location, special events Downtown, the diverse housing styles and the many public parks, just to name a few. Can I recommend a particular subdivision? No, only you know which one is the right one for you!
I would be happy to explore the many different Silver Spring neighborhoods with you until you've found the one you want to call home!
