Great question. What I would suggest to you is to drive by the particular streets that you wish to live on during the day for at least two days during the week and then drive by at night on two different days during the week and then do the same thing on the weekends. I believe that it is very hard for someone to tell you what street would be safe because everyone has a different perception of what safe means to them. What might be unsafe to me may feel safe to you. You can also always look at the crime stats that are provided on Trulia. Look through your neighborhood papers or simply go to your local police station and ask them if they can provide you with the crime stats for that area. If you are looking to purchase, I would love to talk with you about how I could help you get the best price for a home as well as provide you with information on what the best mortgage program would be for you and your family.
I hope this helps.
