Yes, these "safety" questions put us in a difficult position as agents!!! We are bound by our licensure not to discriminate in any way and, sometimes, by us providing opinions about whether an area is safe or not or info about crime rates in a given area, smacks of us telling the buyer what's acceptable and not acceptable about an area. This would be considered what our industry calls "STEERING". And, we can't do that. When you enter in to a purchase agreement, you'll see that there are places on the forms, (SEVERAL TIMES) where you must accept responsibility for checking out the the information on your own so YOU feel satisfied with it.
And, really, do you want us making that call for you?? I mean, what we might find acceptable, might not be acceptable at ALL for you, and vice versa. Make sense?
Good luck, Mona and let us know how it turns out~
