I wouldn't say I agree with their top 10 safest neighborhood list but that goes to show there could be differences in how the data is analyzed.
If you are searching for rental properties, Craigslist has the most inventory but watch out for scams.
RE agents are restricted from blockbusting away from an area, or steering towards an area to keep it fair.
But I can tell you that I lived in Oceanside for quite awhile, and still live within minutes of there - and there are certainly many fabulous safe neighborhoods in that large city.
I currently have two girlfriends whom each live alone in central and south Oceanside and they are still perfectly content where they are too.
If you would like more specific information about their neighborhoods please feel free to call me.
