A hidden jewel -- the ENCLAVE AT GROVE HILL is the only NEW GATED COMMUNITY that is INNER CITY. the community is 4 miles to downtown. DAVID WEEKLEY is the home builder and is well known in the Houston and Dallas market. This community can be found at the intersection of LAWNVIEWN @ GROVE HILL; you can build a brand new home or buy and existing home. This is a surprise to a lot of folks - even the Dallas Police stats for 2009 show this community experience's the least amount of crime compare to the rest of the City! Folks call this community THE NEW EAST DALLAS........i hope this helps you out? Most important, do your research. one more thing, i'm not an agent just and person involved in his community

Hi... this was very helpful. The new East Dallas? does that mean that East Dallas is an area to also look into?

I'd be happy to provide you with all kinds of statistics and information on neighborhoods and areas. It would be easier if you let me know what areas that would be most appealing to you. We just need a starting place. I suggest starting with an area that you think you would like that is convenient to work, hobbies, etc. and then we have a starting place.

Feel free to contact me directly. Cindy Coats, Keller Williams, 214-727-7959

I like the graphically display on the website reference below. It is difficult to believe that the suburbs around Dallas don't have more. Crimes are either not reported into the same database or they really are a whole lot less crime-ridden. (Maybe the website doesn't access that data)
Every area has some crime, from property theft, vandalism, to prostitution and drugs, and even to violent crimes involving guns. You may want to look at the types of crimes and not just the volume. Personally, violent crimes seem to be more worrisome aspect of a neighborhood, but you may be worried about streetwalkers, too.

Not in north Dallas! Dont let the rumors mislead you it is far from safe! Drugs run this area now and prostitution this use to be one of the most admired parts of Dallas but is has been a major decline in safty!!! The best places to live would be Cedar Hill or Princeton!!!!!!!

Look at the statistics of the Irving Police Department, which you can see on line. There has been a stunning decrease in all types of crimes. The Chief of Police has gained national attention because of it. Irving is one of the most central, most convenient locations in the Metroplex, to boot. We can be at the Galleria, downtown, Cedar Springs, North Park or just about anywhere else we want to be in 20 minutes; downtown Fort Worth in 30, DFW airport in nothing flat.

I am a real estate broker and I live in Corinth, TX in Denton County - just about 25 miles north of Dallas. It is widely know as the 2nd safest city in Texas and the D Magazine just voted it the 14th on the list of best place to live in the DFW suburbs.

I personally have lived in the community for 20 years. We have raised our kids here and we love it. We are close enough to drive to Dallas to see sporting events, restaurants, theatre, etc. but when we get home we feel like we are out of the rat race.
Let me know if you would like for me to help you search for a new home.

Tough question....but here are a few resources you might try.
There are a few great resources around. I think it is best to contact your Community Resource Officer or CRO at the police department. Just call the main non-emergency number and ask to be connected to the CRO. They’re normally very aware of the good and bad areas of the area and can normally give you local statistics. You can also check out which provides stats based on the FBI uniform crime reports. You might also visit the FBI stats site at Another place to checkout is . Hope this is of you to you.

All parts of the city do have crime rates you can contact the local police department via their websites to obtain that info.

In many instances as with other major cities the communities where the areas have gone down in true value will usually warrant more of crime rate, those areas are supported via government housing many of the residence are unemployed.

However in these areas cities usually go back in start cleaning up the areas, and housing can be inexpensive at the time with only an upside I have seen some great foreclosures in these areas

IF you seeking a home to purchase notify my office we can provide you Dallas home foreclosures allows you to have approx. 15% or more equity !

However never purchase home without a real estate agent representing you !
