When home buyers start looking in new neighborhoods or cities, their first questions are often about the demographics of the area. Where do residents work? How are the schools? How many people live here? Is it a diverse community?

The best answers to these questions usually come from unbiased third-party sources - not necessarily real estate agents or neighbors. We've collected a few sources of info to help you learn about the neighborhoods you're considering.

DataUSA

DataUSAAt the city level, DataUSA is a great source of info. From the political makeup of a town to home values and poverty levels to education and employment, they provide a ton of data. You'll even find out info on the area's elected officials and election results. IN their own words, "Data USA tells millions of stories about America. Through advanced data analytics and visualization, it tells stories about: places in America—towns, cities and states; occupations, from teachers to welders to web developers; industries--where they are thriving, where they are declining and their interconnectedness to each other; and education and skills, from where is the best place to live if you’re a computer science major to the key skills needed to be an accountant."
