If you're concerned about safety versus crime rate, you may find that this part of Daly City has nominal index for crimes, particularly if you're considering the areas or developments that require entry codes and the likes. Then again, if getting statistics on crime rates in any given area are a major concern, one need only type into any search engine online those key words for the given community and you'll get literally dozens of sites that will filter the statistics you seek. However, the best way I have found for most people who want to buy any where at any time and feel relatively good about the neighborhood is to drive the area you've targeted and to drive it at different times of the day -- prior to committing to it, that is. I recall showing a few condos to prospective buyers in a neighborhood that was considered nice, Diamond Heights, and following this strategy, the buyer uncovered enclaves or pockets of low income housing in this otherwise pricey area of San Francisco. Let's remember though, unless you're going to be buying a gated mansion in an isolated community far away from the hustle and bustle of an urban setting, finding a place that has no possibility of any undesirable elements is nearly impossible. But, if you keep an open mind about what you're willing to accept, you'll find that you can locate a good place that you can call home. Oh, and I have sold properties in and around the are you mention, and I don't recall there being any reason to be alarmed at possible safety issues. Hope this helps. ... more
