Hello Wolfm3,

We, as realtors can not comment on the specifics of neighborhoods as it is considered steering and it's considered unethical. Here is a website that will give you information any area, you can check any sort of crime activity and such. If you need a website for schools, I will be happy to provide that as well.

Not to search through many sites, go to Stats & Trends right here, on Trulia. It will give you a statistical overview on the crime in Daly City. Local police is a good source too, however it's very difficult to advise on a specific street block. I and my family own a home in Daly City for the last 12 years. Call me if you need further assistance.

Statistics extracted from the internet does not tell you exactly how safe each streets are in a given neighborhood. It just gives you a run down of crimes created in a particular region. Your best bet is to drive in the neighborhood in the late evenings to scout the area or talk to some of the neighbors on the block

1 – Ask the local police/sheriffs department

Gather the street names closest to the home you and considering and ask them to check on the streets. They will in most cases tell you if many calls are made to the area.

2 - Megan's Law Database

Visit: http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov/

This site offers a search feature and will show the current location of known sex offenders.

3 – Online data

http://www.city-data.com is full of statistics and information.

http://www.propertymaps.com is another good site, which has crime statistics.

4 - Talk to neighbors

Talk to several people. Most people are friendly and will share everything they know. Nothing beats the insight of someone that has lived in the area for years.

5 – Visit the neighborhood at various times of the day and night.

What is the condition of the surrounding block or two? What condition are the houses? Are the front yards manicured and well cared for? Broken down cars, chain link fences, and pit bulls are not a good sign.

At the end of the day ask yourself this one question: “Do you think it would safe for your grandma to walk around the block alone at night?” Hopefully after competing the 5 steps listed above…that would be an easy question to answer.
