To help give you peace of mind and make an informed decision on this, you may want to check out the detailed crime statistics on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation website.
You can access their Online Crime Database here: http://www.tennesseecrimeonline.com.
It allows you to customize your search by police department jurisdiction, type of crime, and even narrow it down specifically to gang related activities.
For what it is worth, I have been living near Blackman for nearly 20 years and both my kids went to Blackman Schools. We have never experienced any kind of gang activity or vandalism and enjoy living here.
Please let me know if I can help further.
I've lived in west Murfreesboro for 15 years and hae been a buyers agent for 5 years. It is possible that there is some gang acivity in any neighborhood. However, gang activity in the Blackman community is all but non-existent in my opinion.
I have hundreds of friends and previous clients and customers who live in the area and have never heard of them having a problem with gang activity or vandalism. That is not to say that crime does not rear its ugly head everywhere that man lives.
If you do not have a buyers agent I'd be happy to help you to investigate any neighborhood to make sure you and your loved ones feel comfortable.
You should certainly have the opportunity to purchase a home where you feel safe. The families in that area that have made purchase recently tell me they love it. They are off Cason Lane, Franklin Road, Manson, and Cason Trail. Are these the areas you have questions about?
((you might also try looking for community feedback on the City Data Nashville Forum, another excellent source for local information))
Hoping to help you take advantage of the market – when you are ready.
