Your question about crime rates are a commonly asked question of REALTORS. What you will find is that most REALTORS won't provide a direct answer. There are a few reasons for that. 1) What is considered safe is subjective. 2) Anything can happen anywhere, so anyone has a hesitancy to call an area safe, and the 1 out of 10K chance of something happening.....does. 3) Fair Housing Laws - both state and federal prohibit steering toward or away from any specific neighborhood.

While I am unable to provide you opinions on crime and safety, I can certainly provide you a few sources where you read statistics on the 07740 and West End area. I will, however, offer this additional comment. The zip, 07740, covers a large geography. The data will provide averages from the larger geographic area. It's always a good idea to spend time in an area and chat with people from the neighborhood.

I just placed a contract into attorney review today (literally....just a few hours ago) for a condo in West End, and have been in and out of just about every complex in the area. Based upon your criteria for size, price, style and condition, I might be able to make some recommendations.

Here are a few sites that might have helpful data for you:

Good Luck. LMK if I can further help you.
