That is a tough question for a Realtor to answe, because it opens him/ her up to potential liability no matter how they answer it. The best advice I could give with regard to that is to research the police logs and also go by there yourself, at night, and judge for yourself how safe it seems.
As realtors we are not allowed to comment about the safety of any community I would recommend googling the crime rate in the area as well as contacting the local Uthorities. There is also feedback here in Trulua regarding crime stats. Hoped this helps.
