Here's my answer: safe is safe [ sayf ]
not dangerous: unlikely to cause or result in harm, injury, or damage
not in danger: in a position or situation that offers protection, so that harm, damage, loss, or unwanted tampering is unlikely
unharmed or undamaged: in an unharmed, uninjured, or undamaged condition
Safe would be somewhere with low crime - low rapes low murders probably low burglary/mugging as well.. Safe would be somewhere with good schools and low gang activity. Safe would be somewhere that you don't have to sleep with a gun under your pillow, gun in your pocket when walking the dog at night, worrying about your wife at home alone at night while you work. Just saying.

Of course, Sarasota Square Mall is nearby, and I think that it is understood that petty crimes often happen at shopping malls.
I live in the Palmer Ranch area, and have never been concerned about crime. Your personal level of concern for safety may be different from mine, however.
If you have not yet seen the home on Antler Trail, I would be happy to show it to you. It is a very nicely-updated home, and I have shown it to several buyers who have been impressed.

Realtors are forbidden from giving an opinion on the safety, ethnicity, or other demographic composition of an area or neighborhood based on legally protected classes of people under the Fair Housing Act of 1968.
So the best response I can give is to suggest you go to the Sarasota county sheriff's website to see the crime statistics of that area of Sarasota.
By the way, since you are looking at a home in Deer Creek within Palmer Ranch, I would mention that a number of homes within Deer Creek have had issues with pin hole leaks in the metal water pipes over the years. So a good question to ask the homeowner is - has the home been replumbed?
Good luck with your home search, and if you'd like other types of information about Deer Creek and/or Palmer Ranch, please send me an email or give me a call.
