Hi Ken, Actually Indian Village is the saffest area in Detroit to purchase a home, the neighbors are great. They are always watching the houses in the area. I have been looking to purchase a home in Indian Village myself, I have drove around the area and spoke with a few of the neighbors and they were always friendly. As with any area you always have one or two idiots who live in the area, and I am sure Indian Village has this there, but for the most part I would believe it to be safe. I have a real estate agent who I use and she is awesome with any information you would need on the area. IF you would ike I can get you her number and you may call her and ask any question about your concern. Good Luck looking for a home.
