Hello Ruth,
Since Liberty Street is in Sarasota County you can go to and see the crime stats. I'd hope that it was still a nice area, I used to live on that street years ago and loved it.

I suggest you contact a local ENGLEWOOD real estate professional if you are moving to Englewood, Florida. Real estate professionals serving Sarasota, which is located 45 minutes north of the area may not understand the area. I have lived in Englewood for 25 years and it is a nice place to live.

Do work with a local real estate professional who has experience in Englewood. For crime stats, check out the local sheriff's department. You will need to check with both Sarasota County and Charlotte County departments since Englewood is unincorporated and has properties in both counties. I think Liberty is on the county line or near it.

I suggest you look at the neighborhood at different times of day and on different days. I have valid real estate license, but I am not practicing at the moment. I am offering this information based on my personal experience as a person living in Englewood since 1985.

WHOA! I just read that email answer from the agent from Englewood! Shocking is all I can say. As real estate professionals it is unlawful for us to provide crime information or "steer" prospective buyers out of any areas or neighborhoods! We are allowed, as Anna and David did, to provide you with resources and links to do research on your own. One wonders how this last agent found out what type of pills, pot and various mind altering drugs are sold in different areas.

I find that one can pretty much tell everything that is needed to know about a neighborhood by visiting it on weekdays in the evening and on the weekends during the daytime.

If you are interested in visiting this, or any home please call or email me directly and we can set up an appointment.

If you are concerned about safety, your best source of information is the local police department, call/visit and ask all your questions, they will gladly help--and when visiting the area chat with the neighbors/locals and inquire about the neighborhood.

Dear Ruth:

Here's a link to this property and another property for sale in Bay View Manor:…

Click on the "Blue Dasher" icon to the right of the property address in this link and you can take a virtual drive of the neighborhood from your computer!

I would recommend calling the Sarasota Sheriff's Office to find out about crime statistics or recent problems in any neighborhood: (941) 861-5800.

If you'd like to view these properties in person, I'd be happy to show them to you.

Best regards,

Ruth - I also failed to mention that if you'd like to take a look inside I'd be happy to show you the house. Its vacant and the seller has indicated that the furnishings are also for sale. It's a pretty new listing with only 13 days on the market. Let me know. Thanks and have a great day.

If you are asking if I would be OK with my daughter living there, I would say yes. The information on crimes in the area can be found at This area is very clost to 776 and the water. If you have questions about safety, please contact the local law enforcement and they can tell you about the most updated issues in that area. If you are considering making a purchase, I hope you would consider me to guid you in the right direction.

Hi Ruth - As you know Charlotte County has one of the lowest crime rates in the State. You should contact the local police department. They have the ability to run crime reports for any neighborhood you like. The report shows what type of crime if any has happen in an area. This would be a great first step for you to make a determination if the area is safest for you. You can also ask the neighbors although you make find that you get bias or exaggerated opinion. A police report is factual.

Here is a link to police department:

Let me know if you need anything further.
