Hello Tyler,
Go to http://www.spotcrime.com and enter your home address or neighborhood you are familiar with. Spot Crime will show you all the crimes committed in that neighborhood with easy to interpret ICONS. Then enter this 621 Huffman address and you will get a similar report. You can easily compare the two maps of icons and see the differences in the control neighborhood, compared to the subject neighborhood. You can also use http://www.clrsearch.com. Go to the home page and click on the Community Demographics tab. this will allow you to enter any zip code in America and it will give you chart of crimes. BUT the next thing is to compare that first zip code against another one. In the upper right hand corner of the chart you will see a box to enter a second zip code for comparison.

Crime does not have an address and you understand crime in a relative way. You are familiar and comfortable in certain areas and you can use these as the way to understand new neighborhoods.

Personally, I feel safe there. Crime can happen anywhere, of course.

As the second largest city in the state of Indiana, Fort Wayne enjoys a relatively low crime rate. There are sources (as listed in the post below) that compile neighborhood statistics. Keep in mind that any area may be subject to random acts of violence or other illegal activity. There are precautions that each of should take to minimize our potentil exposure to crime.

I have more than 26 years of local real estate experience and welcome the oppotunity to assist you with your home search.

Contact the police station in the area you are purchasing and ask about the crime rate.
