Once you come to Charlotte to look for homes, the best way to really find out about crime is to go to the local police department and just ask.
I am very familiar with that area of Charlotte. I feel it offers one of the best values in Charlotte, while still offering plenty of amenities and convenience to Uptown Charlotte and the major interstates.
Please let me know if I can assist you further in your search.
I live in that area and I am also an Allstate agent. It is a nice area you may also want to lookin the 28278 zipcode, there are some newer subdivisions there. If I can help in anyway let me know, and welcome to Charlotte.

This area is also in my own backyard as I live 2 miles away from there.
I would also look into the sites Susan has listed as they are very reliable.
