The property manager does no care about anyone but her own friends that reside there. She is very rude and has been proven multiple times of being a racist. So as long as your white, and kiss ass to all her friends that smoke pot on the front porch with small kids around,,, then yes this place is for you!!! I would love to know how I can go over her head and get any contact info to make a formal complaint bc someone else defiantly needs her job!!! ... more

No there have not been any shootings. This is a very family friendly neighborhood where the kids still enjoy playing outside and your neighbors will actually smile and greet you.

Your best bet is to call the local police who service that area. They will have the crime statistics you need. Sometimes, however, doing some drive-bys at different times of the day on different days of the week will give you a good idea. Do a Google search for crime in that area. Read local newspapers crime statistics/police blotter sections...go to a local diner and ask questions. Good luck. ... more

Is that a question about this property or are you wanting folks to know the person who lives there is one?
There is a Sheriff or Marion county sex offender website.
Good luck.

Hey Blaike,

Check out for statistics on crime in that area. There are several homes in that area available for sale that could have a mortgage payment lower than your rent would be at those apartments, though. Why not try to save some money, all while building equity into a home? There are financing programs available to help you get into a home with little to no money down. Feel free to reach out to me.

gsh777 answered:
I will give you a straight answer to this question: Lock up ANYTHING you don't want to be stolen. Get a place with a garage so you can close away your car. Even if your stuff is nailed down, chained up, behind a fence, you have a dog or vigilant neighbors...people will steal your stuff. Even if it isn't valuable (like a rusty old bike that wouldn't even sell for $20, or a Rubbermaid trash can), it doesn't matter - they will steal it from right out under your nose. Move there if you must, but do so with both eyes open and take a very "city," trust-no-one kind of attitude with you. Sad but true... ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

the home appears to be sold and should close on the 12th. The last sale on record was in I'd assume the current owner has lived there 5 years. You can search for home on my website or call me at 317-218-7867 and I can give you more insight. Picking a realtor is easy. Picking the RIGHT one is much more difficult. ... more
