    NOTE: Housing information varies significantly from street to street and month to month in large part due to fluctuating market conditions, desirability and demand for each home.  When it comes to moving into a new home, generalities are not enough which is why I highly encourage anyone interested in finding out specifics about the area to contact a local real estate expert who will customize a home search to suit your needs.  To find out more about my services, follow this link to my website www.lindsaywalls.com
