I haven't lived in MD very long and we are looking to purchase a home here. We've been looking in Columbia, Ellicott city and surrounding areas. We think we found a house that we might put an offer on this week. It's located in Long Reach, I think in the neighborhood of Phelps Luck. It's off Tamar Stonecutter just outside of Kendall Ridge. The elementary is Waterloo, middle is Mayfield high is long reach. Our LO will not be in school for quite a few years he's 2 months today OMG!! but it's still very important for us to be in a good school system area, aafe neighborhood, erc. So, I would like to know your honest opinions of this area, neighborhood, schools, crime, etc, harsh truths please : we moved here from out of state several months ago and don't know many people so it's a little stressful making such a huge purchase without having background knowledge on neighborhoods. I'd appreciate any feedback. Thank you!!!
