As a former home owner on 20th St East in 34208 I can tell you this is NOT the place to buy a home for a family, person, rental, or anything you want of personal value.
I had to put a security system with webcams and a 6' privacy fence and still had attempted break ins right over the back of the fence on video. There are crack houses in abandoned forclosed homes that after months of incidents are finally shut down only to have another one open nearby. The neighborhood drama is ongoing and by the time the Manatee Sheriffs Department getst there, and they do try but one could be in serious trouble, or worse. The street lighting is horrible, there are no sidewalks except around the Samoset Elementary School.
There is only home depreciation in the area due to the element that prevails...

Try contacting the Bradenton police department directly, let them know you are considering a move to the area and would like the cirme information directly from them (most police departments have informational officers to answer questions like this). I always go directly to the source, otherwise you get all different kinds of answers.

Best of luck in your home purchase!

The Manatee Sheriff's Department has jurisdiction in this area...and on their webpage is a place one can check by street concerning incidents.

Hello and thank you for your question. My suggestion for you is to visit this link and start there.

Professionally and ethically, real estate agents should never advise you as to whether or not you should choose a particular area or home based on it's being in a safe or a not so safe area. Visit the link above for exact facts and figures. You might also try driving by the the home at different times of the day or night. Another good idea is to talk with the neighbors.

As you may be aware, there are many great real estate agents in our area… Rather than having all of them answer your question over and over here on Trulia – you might want to consider contacting a qualified real estate professional that you trust who can help you with all the details involved in the purchase of a new home. If our team would be so privileged to earn your business, we would be thrilled to help you…
