SHERWOOD PARK
SHERWOOD PARK In terms of proximity to jobs and amenities this is a great area. I lived here several years ago and ran in the neighborhood every day. There is a great neighborhood park and pool. I enjoyed my time there but the neighborhood changed. Due to federal school redistricting many very poor neighborhoods were brought into the school district. The schools spiraled dragging property appreciation with them. I haven't been through the neighborhood recently but at last visit the neighborhood looked pretty good. There were a couple of houses that needed maintenance. .

There are a few niche neighborhoods that you may consider. Like Sherwood Park the schools are not attractive but for households without kids they would be good, One neighborhood in particular is in the growth path of downtown. You would have to have a LONG hold period and expect a lot of initial repairs and tenant problems. There are a few local investors that have recognized the trend and are picking up houses.

The map omitted areas outside the city but not too far out.. I'm biased but like the area northeast of the city in Ryland, Maysville, Brownsboro and near communities. The schools are good. This is based on first hand experience and rankings of schools. Google earth the area and browse around. Be sure to look at Madison County Lake.

Southeast Huntsville / Hampton Cove is another rapidly growing area. The area further to the southeast, Owens Cross Roads is also growing and the schools went from bad to very good. This area connects through a mountain road to Gurley in Northeast county. This is a little far now but the city is growing in that direction. For a long hold period this would be a good area.

Northwest county Has good schools and growth but the infrastructure is a little strained. There is road improvement and new schools planned.

Summary on social media tenant screening and fair housing

Using social media tenant screening

It may be tempting to use social media to learn more about prospective residents during the screening process.

However, on social media you are likely to find out information that defines someone as protected class, such as their religion, that they have children, or that they have a disability.

This could make you more likely to deny someone housing based on those characteristics, which could make you more vulnerable to discrimination claims.

If you think what you find on social media could influence, or even appear to influence, your decision about leasing to someone, then steer clear of investigating on social media. The best thing to do is follow your standard application and qualification procedures consistently for all prospects.

If you connect with residents on social media, think carefully before acting on information you find.

Using social media to check on current tenants

Imagine you have a couple living in a one-bedroom apartment home.

Your occupancy limits specify two people per bedroom.

On social media, you learn that the couple is in the process of adopting twins. What should you do?

In this case, it is best to not take any action.

Even making a note of this in the residents’ file could be problematic if you face a fair housing claim. It could appear as though you used the couple’s familial status in making decisions, which could violate fair housing law.

What if you come across something concerning about residents on social media, such an indication that they lied on their application or weren’t honest in an accommodation request?

Consult with your supervisor and legal counsel before taking any action. If you act on information and are wrong about what you found, you may put yourself at risk for a fair housing complaint.

Summary on social media tenant screening and fair housing
In this age of social media, it is important to understand that you are responsible for acting in a non-discriminatory way, no matter what form of communication you are using.

You must be just as mindful of fair housing laws when sharing information and interacting with customers online as you are when sharing information and interacting in print and in person.

The same rules apply.
