Awesome that you are concerned about the neighborhood BEFORE you buy! Are you relocating, or are you able to drive the area? A wonderful place to begin research is http://www.city-data.com You can also look at http://www.greatschools.com as well as https://www.google.com/search?q=crime+statistics+jacksonvill… I just googled "Crime Stats Jacksonville FL.

If you are not already working with. Realtor, I would be more than happy to send you some maps and information about my city!

THE CRIME IS VERY HIGH IN THIS AREA. I LIVED THERE FOR 20 YEARS AND MOVED FROM MY BELOVED HOME BECAUSE OF THE CRIME. IT IS PRETTY BAD WHEN YOU GET TOO AFRAID TO GO TO THE GROCERY STORE ALONE BECAUSE OF MUGGINGS IN THE STORE PARKING LOTS ECT. THE SCHOOLS ARE BAD AND FILLED WITH BULLIES BOTH BLACK AND WHITE,MOSTLY BLACK. THE TEACHERS ARE TOO AFRAID OF THE STUDENTS AND THE STUDENTS PARENTS TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. YOUR CHILD WILL BE AT THE MERCY OF THE BULLIES. PRAY FOR THIS PART OF TOEN,IT IS NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE. THANK YOU

Realtors cannot steer people to or away from a community. Google FDLE and click on statistics, usually found at top pf google search This is a data base report from the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement.

Good Afternoon,

Unfortunately Realtors can not answer questions worded like that. It may be considered steering: which is the act of encouraging consumers to avoid certain neighborhood or area. It is great that you are doing research before selecting an area to live in. I recommend searching the internet for sites that provide unbiased accurate information. Most government sites will have the best information with regards to any area. You can go to the following sites to help assist you with your search. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
