Roberts Trace Reviews

The quality of housing in this area ranges from low to high. However, the housing is typically good or fair. The cost of housing and utilities is normal compared to everywhere else in the nation. The shell road area in Hampton is one of the worst areas to reside. Also some parts of Newport News I would not recommend.

The community is pet/family friendly in a lot of ways. Community events are held usually in the summer and during holidays such as "community day" and easter egg hunts. Also events are held near the beach. There is a good sense of community because people to engage in a number of community activities.
The housing is good and usually above average. There is some prevalence of vacant or abandoned properties due to the fact that this area is big on real estate and people do sale their houses. This area is pretty safe to live in.
