When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit 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.

Like someone mentioned below, the best way to know the neighborhood is to drive through it. There is a police station right at the entrance to the community and police cars patrol the area all the time. All I can say is that should the crime happen they would make it there fast. Sailboat Bend is not a very family oriented community. I would recommend Plantation, Weston, Pembroke Pines. They all have A rated schools. If you want to stay closer to the beach look at Coral Ridge area, anything along Bayview Drive and Rio Vista.

The best way to learn about a neighborhood is to visit it. Ask your Fort Lauderdale real estate agent to show you some homes in Sailboat Bend so you can get an in-person view. While you're there, talk to some of the neighbors.

Hello Jill:

Violent crimes can happen in all communities. A crime report for the neighborhood is the best way to gauge the safety of a community. The Police would know best. Good Luck.
