Missy, I can understand that as a consumer you want to to have that sort of question answered.

The truth is, not only can we, as realtors, not answer it...honestly, it is too subjective to answer even if we could.

What might be "bad" to one person, is another person's "perfectly fine" neighborhood.

There are people buying and selling in all kinds of neighborhoods all the time, so an agent's personal opinion of what might be good or bad isn't important.

It's what YOU think that matters.
You can use trulia's list of agents to find a local agent who can help you discover the answers to your question, or at least point you in the right direction.

Best wishes...........

This is probably a little late, but as someone who's not a realtor and grew up in this area... It's not a bad neighborhood. Mostly working-class/middle class people just living their lives. It has an almost "burby" feel to it compared to other parts of the city. There's petty crime that happens, but you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere in the city where it doesn't.

A neighborhood is only as bad you would leave yourself vulnerable.

ANYWHERE you move to........ always be sober and vigilante

On a lighter note ..... try this site-

What part of real estate agents are forbidden didn't you understand. No professional is going to put their license on the line. The remedy again is to go on the Philadelphia police website. Sometimes you have to be proactive on your own behalf and not look for the simple answers. Good luck to you.

Good evening,Missy;
Real estate agents are forbidden from making comments about any area.You can go onto the police dept website & look up the crime statistics.
If you are not working with an agent, call me and will be happy to help you find a new home.
