R E agents are not allowed to answer that question because it could violate Fed anti discrimination laws. One of our 'standard' answers is to have you check with police crime statistics, friends family and co workers.
I always go by the mantra "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything" I live in Rogers Park and there are many houses that can use some TLC. From what I can see, people actually live in the house. If you have concerns that the house is a danger you can always call the city at 311. That's about all we can do other than a generous offer to help the homeowner fix/repair the home.
