Alpine Township Reviews

This area is very community based. Practically everybody knows each other and would be willing to help anybody if they need it. People/families tend to live here for a very long time, which is why everybody gets to know each other quite well. Houses don't tend to come up for sale very often. Pretty much everybody in the area owns some sort of pet, which makes the community quite pet-friendly.
Houses in the area are overall well-maintained. Located in a country region, houses tend to have a decent amount of property attached to them, which in some cases increases the prices of homes when they do come up for sale. With that being said, because people tend to live in the same house for a long time, so in reality houses do not tend to come up for sale that often.
We have had incidents in the past, however since then, the police have been more vigilent and the community feels safer now than ever before. It is a great, quiet place to live and to grow up. I hope to never have to move away from it.
