I live at 50 S School, which isn't far from the home you're considering. I'm female and have never had any issues walking in this area, day or night. I live near the library and see others out walking on a regular basis. You should be fine here.

jsean847 is correct. As a retired police officer, now Realtor here in Fayetteville, the best advise is to always be aware. Keep your head up and your wits about you at all times, and there's a very good chance you can avoid becoming a victim. Essentially, "don't look like a victim waiting on someone to take advantage of you." Common sense goes a long way. Walk on the correct side of the street, against traffic and use sidewalks. Stay in well lit areas whenever possible when walking at night. Always a good idea to carry a flashlight, even a small one, when walking at night. Don't wear dark cloths at night, and if possible don't walk alone. If possible, if you become uncomfortable at anytime, step inside any open business, and call the police if you feel threatened.

Hope this helps.

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.
