Dangerous is relative to who you are asking and recieving information from. Certainly crime statistics don't lie, but you need to speak with neighbors on a weekend on the street you are considering buying on or a few streets over. I live in a neighborhood that doesn't have the best crime statistics, but I have never had an issue. I grew up in that neighborhood, moved away for 10 years and when I moved back, I bought in that neighborhood. I think if you have a strong civic league, get to know your neighbors and watch out for each other, any neighborhood can be safe. I have great neighbors now and as a child I remember that my parents knew everyone who lived on our street. Just because you see criminal activity on the news in a neighborhood doesn't make the whole neighborhood bad and just because you don't see the criminal activity in a neighborhood on the news doesn't make the neighborhood good! My suggestion is to ride down the street in the evenings, on the weekends and late at night and see how you feel because ultimately your agent isn't going to live there, none of us posting answers to Trulia are going to live there, but you are going to have to live there. Your comfort level is what is important. If you want a buyer's agent please feel free to call me (757) 237-0494. Good luck. I hope you find the home of your dreams!
