Mark,

Have you considered checking out Lodi? I grew up in Stockton and have lived in Lodi for 20 years and it's a great place to live.

There are outskirts of Stockton itself which do not have the gang problem. Check out crime rates by zip code (for example downtown and south side are the high crime areas).

Hello Mark,
You are right to be concerned with crime in Stockton as it seems to be getting worse in some areas. Although never immune from crime no matter where you live, I believe there are some very good areas to live in Stockton. To name a few:
Lincoln Village
Lincoln Village West
Spanos Park
Brookside
For the most part these areas are safe and are good communities.
For more information check out this new tool from the city of stockton, which maps crime calls in differnet locations. Although, I must say this site is not always functioning. Its hit and miss.

Sure, check near Waterloo and 88. Also, Hwy 26 and Linden but Wayne is right - there are plenty of safe areas in Stockton. The properties out-of-town can be expensive because most have large lots and they haven't been impacted as much by the foreclosure market. Great time to buy due to low prices.
