There are many websites you can go on to check the crime data for any City. Just google crime data and the cities name.
The City of Sachse is in Collin County and is an up and coming growth city. Many young families and first time home buyers are moving to this area because it still has a small town feel but close to all the big city attractions.
I have placed many first time home buyers in Sachse and they love living there.
Feel free to email me for more information.

The home that you were viewing is located in Dallas County. Parts of Sachse are in Collin County, but the majority of Sachse is located in Dallas County. This home is located in a great part of town...it's very near to Sachse High School (which is highly-desirable) and there is easy access to the George Bush Turnpike (Hwy 190) for an easy commute. It's also located just minutes from Firewheel Town Center where you will find great shopping, dining, and entertainment. There are several golf courses nearby including Firewheel and Woodbridge.
If you are not already working with a Realtor, I would be happy to assist you. There is no cost to you (as a buyer) for my professional services. There are some great neighborhoods in this area - and even some new construction homes nearby. Additionally, there are some other great communities nearby such as Wylie.
I know that if we work together we can find you the perfect place to call home!

Sachse is part of Garland ISD (independent school district) and has some good schools. People tell us they love Sachse HS. Here's a map of the school district http://www.garlandisd.net/about/map/index.asp so you can see where Garland schools are located. That's important because Garland ISD allows a child to attend ANY school in the district no matter where they live - it is not divided into attendance zones around each school.
As far as "safe", I agree, as usual, with Bruce - that's in the eye of the beholder and the stats do seem to indicate a low crime area. We live nearby and consider it safe, but there is crime everywhere.
Being adjacent to Firewheel makes shopping easy and a pleasure. Here's a link to the mall's website http://www.simon.com/mall/firewheel-town-center I think you like the huge variety of shops and things to do there.
Geo Bush Turnpike is also close by, which connects down through Rowlett to I-30, east and west, and west through Plano to US 75, north and south, all the way past Carrollton and Farmers Branch. It's a major connecting highway for the Dallas suburbs.
There are about a dozen homes under $160k in Sachse and Rowlett that are similar in size and age to the property you asked about.

Safe is a relative word...so it will always depend on your situation, how you feel, and your own personal experiences.
