Thanks, I appreciate the input! The house is about a mile from main st. When I looked at the house it seemed like a nice small, quiet neighborhood, I never would have thought Southbridge was bad, haha. I'm going to take a drive over again and check the surrounding areas a bit closer. It's just hard to tell sometimes. If I was just going to be renting I wouldn't be so concerned. I have to keep reminding myself that I lived in Dorchester and thought it was fine, haha.
