It is a mixed area with pockets of safety and some sketchy areas. Overall, safety is not a big issue in the area although if you venture north or east a few blocks you will get into some graffitti / property crime type areas. You will want to keep the car doors locked when you park on the street but it is a fairly nice area, not much to worry about.

Some of the answers are right. I have some friends that live on Snyder which is very near there and it is a very nice area. East of Delmas which is where Snyder can be a bit dicy. There are pockets that are very nice and seem safe. Our friends on Snyder have never had a problem with safety.

Call me if I can help you in your search for a home and we can check the area.

you dont want to be east of Bird. safety becomes a concern the further you go east. but even worse you start to hear the airport flight pattern.

Here is a site to check on crime statistics.

Ask the owner to tell you about any crimes they know about nearby. Your best bet is to knock on the nearby neighbors' doors, introduce yourself and say you're thinking of buying that home, and ask them about the neighborhood. You'll learn a lot that way. Some may be true, some may be gossip, but you'll meet the neighbors (important) and get valuable data.

Some of 95125 is truly Willow Glen; some is borderline.

Always trust your gut. If it feels unsafe to you, don't over-analyze, just don't buy it.

You can do a zip code or PD websites. Real estate professionals per code of ethics can’t make comments
