So, the downturn in the economy affected different area in different ways. There are some foreclosures in all areas, but some areas did not fare very well. We are seeing less and less foreclosed property hitting the market.
As for Standish and Bancroft, that area was not AS hard hit as some others, but certainly felt the pain of declining property values. If a house is for sale there in the $25K price range, you can expect that it's got LOTS of major projects that need doing right away, which requires cash out of pocket on the buyers part. Or that it's a "tear down".
As to your question as to whether or not it's a safe neighborhood... that's a question that Realtors will avoid like the plague. We aren't really legally permitted to comment on issues related to crime and crime statistics. However, crime statistics are facts too. If you want to know the facts about crime and crime rates in a specific neighborhood, that info is something that you should obtain from the police department....or....you could start here... https://www.google.com/search?q=crime+statistics+minneapolis
