My wife works for LE and we built a house in Northville, Lyon Twp, based on her knowledge of the area. If you don't have kids in school, Plymouth, or other areas would most likely be okay if you check the area.

Romulus is good if you want land and freedom..... no city bs. Very nice homes with land south of romulus. Time to travel from southern romulus to livonia via middlebelt is 20 min.

I live in northern westland about a block south of livonia. I am in the livonia school sytem. Nice houses and great people. Everything is close by. My house a lot size is identical to what you could find in Livonia but cost much less. My property value has rising 25k since I purchase the home 5 years ago. If in westland stay on the north side. Mid westland and garden city is blue collar and south westland is white trash and ghetto but they stay there. They dont drift north.

Livonia is higher cost with currently declining values. The pd are total assholes and the municipalities are horrible.

Plymouth....Nice but costly. ritzy titzy. Very strict municipality. Steady values.

Canton ... Not a fan.

IMO North westland is were you get your value. Same type of housing and people as livonia, livonia schools, quiet neighbor hoods, close by all ammenities, easy travel.

I remembered a post on here a while ago about heroin in livingston county. I looked it up, and it looks like cj65 is the knowledge source for heroin in schools.

I just happen to know about the Plymouth schools from my neighbor. My brother had the issue when he was in Howell/Genoa TWP. He has since moved from there. Thats the only knowledge I have on the issue.

I live in Romulus and its not bad where I am. If you get any further east or north of me and it gets questionable. West of me gets really nice as does to the south of me.

Buy a house in the White Cloud neighborhood.

Romulus isn't bad. Like any place avoid the low rent areas. It's to bad the Airport split the city the way it has. The "downtown" area still tries to maintain that small town feel but can't because the north side thinks they are Wayne/Canton. The East side thinks they are Taylor. The south side thinks they are New Boston/Huron. And the west side thinks they are Belleville.

I have heard anywhere on the eastside is nothing but murderers, drug dealers and robbers.

If your not worried about the schools, I'd recommend Westland or Garden City. Prices are reasonable, just stay North and West for the best areas. Values in Canton, Plymouth, Novi are all climbing like crazy. We've been house shopping in all those areas and 15 of the 17 houses we've looked at have sold in less than a week.

I would look at downtown Plymouth, Plymouth twp, Salem twp, and Northville.

If looking in Canton stay north of Ford road unless you are west of Canton Center rd./Beck.
