East Palo Alto has had some recent very public crimes which are bringing renewed efforts to make the city safer. I would expect the efforts to have at least temporary affect.

Public gathering places often have more crime in part because there are more people.

You can actually make a pretty good judgement yourself. Look around the area you are thinking about. Are there families out and about? Are there individuals loitering around with no apparent purpose? Are there stores or other commercial activities which attract people? Compare your feelings with the feelings you have in other areas you are considering. Your own judgement will probably be quite good.

There are many good people in East Palo Alto who like living there. As in any city there are problems that need to be worked on.

As Terri stated, overall, Realtors are prohibited by law from telling you whether or not any specific neighborhood is safe. It’s called “steering” and we are prohibited by our code of ethics and federal law from providing such information. Here are a couple posts that explain more:

However, we CAN tell you where to go to get information. In your case, for crime statistics, go to the following sites:

I can't speak to crime. Go to http://www.CrimeReports.com

What I can speak to is I know two people (1) who had or (1) who does live on Buchanan and neither of them ever mentioned anything to me about issues with their community.

Have an amazing day!
