    Bloomington Indiana! What can you tell me about it.

    It looks as though my oldest son may have to relocate to Bloomington for his job.
    Where are some great, safe inexpensive neighborhoods & towns no more than 20-30 minutes from Bloomington.
    Are any of you real estate agents in that area, or if not, can you suggest an honest one we can work with?
    we are thinking of any where along the N end of Bloomington(for ease/expediency) of him coming home or us traveling down to visit, it would be closer for us, but any town that is safe and has the"right house" would of course do.
    We will know in around 2-2.5 months for sure, unless he decides he doesn't want to go, and can find work here in Mi.

    Typical college town. Old hippies run it. a lot of tree hugging. Real estate is expensive in Bloomington, but the price is more reasonable in the hinterlands. Crime is on the rise, but certianly not as bad as a metro city like Indy 40 miles away.

    Sounds like a target rich area.

    Thanks guys.

    The area they(company he works for) are looking at is around the Monroe Co.airport if that helps.

    He has a Mi. CPL, but doesn't carry much if at all I'm afraid.
    Hopefully he won't have to learn the hard way.
