Cadie, regarding your questions about rental areas

Asked by Jim Beatty, Toledo, OH Tue Feb 7, 2012

It's too bad that Trulia pulled your questions if they were in fact sincere valid questions. I understand that the public is allowed to ask such quetions, however real estate agents have to be very careful when discribing an area especially when addressing questions regarding crime or general questions as to whether an area is "good" or "bad".

Having said that, here is a website you can look for your own crime statistics in pretty much any area you want, http://www.spotcrime.com you can also call the drug hotline numbers that are posted on signs all around town and ask for referrals to local blockwatch organizations and another useful tool when researching an area is http://www.city-data.com.

However, real estate agents are all likely to be reluctant in discussing particulars about any specific area as any comments made could easily be misconstrued as fair housing violations.

Hope the links are helpful to you in your search, best of luck.

As a property manager and deciding areas for targeted investments we use different language to help you meet your goals. Portfolio statistics help answer your questions and help guide you into investments that make sense. For example, we talk about high vacancy areas and high theft areas according to what we experience. As well as high turn over areas. If you have specific homes you are looking at we can tell you how similar homes in the area perform as rentals. If you are considering rentals areas work with a property management company that focuses on helping you build a portfolio with your goals in mind. Your success no matter where you purchase a rental is really more related to who is managing the property. I have rentals in every area of Toledo that come to me in a mess from poor management and with experience we turn them around and provide good homes in every corner of Toledo. If you want to know how to find a good management company. Call the court house and see how many complaints of rent escrow are against a company. If they don't care of other owners properties they won't take care of yours. http://www.thehousestoponline.com
