As a licensed professional, we are not suppose to say if this is a good area. This is an violation of fair housing law.
Here is some of the reference I would recommend to you. go to http://www.dallaspolice.net, under crime stat. you can pull out crime report in the area.
This would be the best thing to do.
This Trulia site offers demographic information & shows factual information about neighborhoods. Enter the city or zipcode in the search area.
Once you get a idea of how those areas compare against each other, then drive the areas you are interested in the most and see which areas you feel most comfortable with.
Then select a Realtor to work with solely and build rapport with them. Tell them what you want / need. Don’t ask them directly where is the best area. If they know what you are looking for, they can guide you to what you need and still remain within the limits of the law.
These should help.
Please call, email or text me and I will set you up on a property search as soon as you have narrowed it down a little.
