Trulia's beta version crime maps are wicked cool...they created heat maps.

See the web reference for the ATL heat map. Trulia rocks at the graphics game...

Byrone - if you are buying on Myrtle, then drive over after 730 at night with the windows down, with people you care about riding along - listen, watch, take note come back again after 111pm...come back again around 3am...get to know your neighborhood. Interview neighbors.

You might wish that it's the Myrtle in Midtown...

Meet the APD cops who are assigned to that Zone 4 beat...attend some neighborhood meetings...

Hi Byronelou,

You can try to call a local police department, give them the address and see if they can provide you with the detailed report of all the 911 calls from this complex.

This took all of about 5 seconds to find - and any agent that knows Atlanta already knows this. The numbers speak for themselves.

Dear Byronelou,

I lived on Myrtle STREET for over 20 years so your question really caught my eye! But you are asking about Myrtle DRIVE. OK - out of memory lane and to the present!

Both Brian and Priscilla gave you good answers. Many areas of SW Atlanta are undergoing strong renovation projects. There are some newer areas to live and some run-down areas within that section of town.

Let me offer you a gift: a free Atlanta Metro property search engine called LISTINGBOOK that you may customize to exactly your needs. The search is revised and up-dated every 30 minutes from the FMLS listings themselves. Click --> and sign up easily for the search engine. If you need help with it, feel free to contact me. If I cannot answer the phone - I will call back - I return all my calls myself.

And - last but not least - our company believes in assisting others to achieve their dreams. If we are not the tip-top best for you in your chosen area, we will refer you to an agent specializing in the area you chose. We say that "Real estate is our product but SERVICE is our business."

Have a happy day -

I am assuming you are doing research before you purchase a property here? That zip code is rather broad, there are nicer parts and not so nice parts (to be blunt) A general idea can be found at the link below, but it is better to locate some property and determine the close surroundings first, then pin point your comfort level with the area.,GA,30311/

I am happy to help in any way I can.

It's best to tour the area several times so you'll have first-hand knowledge rather than rely on a website or another person's advice. Especially if you intend on staying in an area long term. If you're going to be an owner occupant
