When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

The best way to find out about crime in any area is to contact the police station for the area. That way you get real stats and not just an agent's opinion!

Careful Mr. Robert Partin. The word "safe" is causes for law suite.

The Oak Forest area in my opinion is a safe area of Houston, I grew up in the area and my parents still live in the area

Teeman,

Realtors do not keep that kind of data. Your best bet is to check in with the local police department. This is a link to the Houston Police Dept web site with current information. http://mycity.houstontx.gov/crime/

Many items regarding "safe" also includes communities that feature 24hr manned entry or access gates. Many properties have security systems or burglar bars. Those kind of items a Realtor can search for. You can also do a search on the internet for sex offenders that might be living in the area.

I hope this information helps. Most of the properties in Memorial Oaks sell in the $110,000-$200,000 range depending on size. Most leases are in the $1100-$1500/m range. If buying, make sure the lender can provide a loan for a "condominum" community. Let us know if we can assist you in finding your next home.
