I agree with most everyone else. You must do your research, ask local police, residence, and even Trulia offers information about crime rates in listed areas.

Good Luck!

Meg,

You will be able to find your answer here at: http://citymaps.phila.gov/CrimeMap/StepByStep.aspx.

One of my clients was going to buy a beautiful property in Graduate Hospital. So he did a little homework first and found out that the block where he was going to buy was notorius for muggings and assaults! Yikes !!!

Realtors know a lot but it is important that you do your own homework as well. Good luck with your search.
