Thank you so much, Lisa, for answering this question!!! I believe the property in question is not in Crystal. But, it's helpful for someone like YOU to chime in because we, as agents, are prohibited from answering questions about crime rates by the limitations of our licensure.
It makes sense, because the Dept. of Commerce wants to make sure that people are not buying houses based on what an agent says is OK. It's much better for buyers/renters to do their own research to make sure they feel comfortable where they're buying/renting rather than going on what WE say is acceptable. We don't want to make that determination for you!!!
I would suggest talking with the police department for that precinct. You can also request a police call report for that address. You can also check to see if there are any registered predatory offenders with a conviction by going to: http://www.cor.state.mn.us
You can also speak to the neighbors and get their opinion.
