My moms is looking at houses in the Lake Arbor/Mitchellville area and also down in Fort Washington off of Ft. Washington Road. She's gonna be living byherself most of the time now that I'm in college. For those of ya'll who live in/near those areas do you think it would be safe for her to live there,how often are people robbed, houses broken in, etc? Thanks

I just got a notice in the mail that condos are for sale (200-300k) at Nat'l Harbor...could be a nice investment if the place turns out to be a success inthe near future...

Largo is so old... Tell her go on 301 to the New Upper Marlboro.. Fort Washington will be jumping in the next year cause they just built the Harbor..Or byBowie State in the Fairwood Shopping Center they have APTS, Condos, Single Family, and Mini Mansions..

^^^^agreed Upper Marlboro is a nice town real quiet, cops live on every street corner literally. I used to live there for four years until we relocated toMorgans Boulevard....Mitchellville is nice, too

Sir... no place is Crime Free cept Heaven...

I grew up in Ft. Wat and my parents still live there... Indian Queen to be exact and I have never heard of anyone in my hood ever being robbed, probablybecause by the time you got all the way OUT of the neighborhood someone would get you.

Its right on the back door of the inner harbor. Some new cribs on Oxon Hill Road and Ft. Foote Road where they are still setting up to build new spots.

I say its always best to go and see in person to get a better feel. If she's worried about crime find a gated community, which most likely is up Iansway...

Good Luck

My Aunts lived out in Mitchellville for about 10 yrs now, and my mother just moved to the Woodmore neighborhood out there..Always a nice place to visit. Neverhear about it, so i suppose the crime rate is low.
