There are many websites you can look on to check the crime rates in specific zip codes. Here is a link for a local website to check crime rates. http://www.azcentral.com/CrimeMaps/ Here is a link to the DPS sex offender site as well. http://www.azdps.gov/Services/Sex_Offender/ I recommend all my clients check these out and crime rates before deciding to buy.

Glendale is a large geographic area which offers buyers a range of homes and communities from which to choose. There are brand new developments being built in parts of the city, and older areas as well. As many other agents have mentioned, it is illegal for a real estate agent to steer a buyer, however, I can safely say that Glendale offers just about everything for everyone. There are communities with waterfront property, or mountain views in the north, and others that are close to the action of restaurants, shops and the stadium in the southern parts of the city with just about everything in between from condos to horse property.
As far as crime, I would take the advice of other agents and contact local law enforcement in any particular zip code of Glendale that you are searching in, but otherwise, rest assured that you can absolutely find areas that are both safe and pristine in the City of Glendale.
Happy house hunting!
