I'd check out Beech Grove, or if anything is available in Greenwood.
Those are south east or south of Indpls.
No to west or north.
At least that's my opinion, and I am a woman that has lived here almost all of my life.
Best of luck in your search.
Check it out, then look at the map below for where it is. Above that you can find little folder looking tags for comparison, schools, crime, etc. This one looks pretty good and it's close to downtown. Cheaper than the one you were looking at, but it has a simple charm.
Just a little help from another person 'looking'.
Here's another link with similar information:
I'd love to help you find a home in your price range and in a safer neighborhood or area. Please feel free to contact me with your criteria for what you need and want in a home.
Thanks for being pro-active and thinking about this very important aspect before you actually get involved in a contractual obligation of any kind. Safety is an important aspect and everyone wants to live in their home and feel safe. Only you can make the decision of the area you really want to live in, so work with a realtor to find a home you'll love in a safe area.
