The last drive by that I know of was outside my house on Christmas Eve at !!:30 in the morning. I was still in bed, there were so many shots fired that I actually rolled out of bed and onto the floor in case a stray bullet came through the window. It seemed to be the last of a series of shootings on the block over the previous two weeks.

Hi there,

Katie from Trulia here. You can see local crime stats on Trulia's Local Info pages: http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Oakland-California/crime/

You can zoom into the areas you're looking for, and search for non-violent and violent crimes.

Good luck!
Katie

Overall, Realtors are prohibited by law from telling you whether or not any specific neighborhood is safe. It’s called “steering” and we are prohibited by our code of ethics and federal law from providing such information. Here are a couple posts that explain more:

Don’t Get ‘Steered’ in the Wrong Direction

However, we CAN tell you where to go to get information. In your case, for crime statistics, go to the following sites:

Yes, there is crime all over but check the http://www.crimemapping.com for crime statistics. Also you may want to contact the local police dept for information on their crime stats.
This rental listing had an open house on Dec. 8th so I doubt it is available but I can check and also email you additional listings available? What are you looking for and how much?
Why rent when you can buy and pay less than rent. You may qualify for CHF Access half percent down payment program with a minimum 580 fico score and which can also contribute towards your closing costs as well. Here are some links to study and consider.

That is a good question. Safety is at the forefront of all of our minds--even more-so with the unfolding of this months events on the East Coast. If you would like to discuss this and other real estate/social related phenomenon ---please give a call 510-502-7811. Have a good/safe/fun holiday season. :0)
