I know this has already been said, but you can't beat Portlandmaps.com, not only does it provide crime information, but countless other maps and tools to give you information about the neighborhood!

A good comparative site for those statistics by zip code is http://www.clrsearch.com

Also http://www.city-data.com will give you rental rates.

I agree with the others: portlandmaps.com is the place you can find the answer to your main question. as for the "pride of ownership" part I would say this is something up to each of us to decide. you can end-up on street where you cannot say if a property (or more) is a rental. if the properties are properly maintained what would be the problem if one is owner-occupied or a rental? the area you mention is not so bad after all. there's fast access to lots of points of interest in the city, to shopping areas and so on. and, by the way, better properties are not so cheap in this area. if I can help you in any other way please feel free to contact me. all the best.

If you are concerned about safety, your best source of information is the local police department, therefore contact/visit with all your questions; if unfamiliar with the area, do visit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
