I think you should invest in a home in Cleveland Heights or Shaker Heights. Only the areas along the Cleveland border have crime, but there are lots of police around this area, much more than in a neighborhood in downtown Cleveland. The Southern part of Cleveland Heights is very nice, and there are many places to eat around Coventry Rd, and Lee Rd. Shaker Heights is very safe, and has a very good police force, as well as Cleveland Heights. The schools are very diverse and are very good. Shaker Heights is more residential, and some parts are much newer, especially towards Beachwood. Overall, both suburbs are a good to live in, and are very close to places to eat, and shop. There are many places nearby like Beachwood Place Mall, and Legacy Village, at Richmond and Cedar Road. There are is also shopping centers at Cedar and Warrensville Center, where there are chain food places, Macy's, Target, Whole Foods, and other shops. There is also a close proximity to downtown, and the Shaker Lakes parks. ... more

I've lived on west 50th and storer ave. Storer ave. and clark ave. are not that great. I would say yes a lot of crime. When I lived here if I walked too far right I was going to get jumped by Puerto Ricans if I walked too far left the African Americans so you see.... its all how you interpret the area and YES pay attention to the buildings that do look like crap. IF they do stay away..unless you want your car stolen or something. ... more

Who thinks just because you're anywhere south of LakeShore that the crime is bad? I've lived in North Collinwood for 17 years. I have never had any problems! My neighbors are the best neighbors anyone could ever have! ... more

You can see the current crime report map under "Local Info" towards the middle of each property page on Trulia by selecting the "Crimes" tab.

The only thing as Realtors we can really tell you is to check public websites for crime rates. City-Data, police and others.

Another thing to know if buying investments are point-of-sale inspections for Euclid. Not sure if you're aware of them or not. I'm sure you are since you lived there.

Wish I could shed more light on your concerns/question but it's not something we'd be able to really discuss.

A great resource for this type of question is Go to the Cleveland Forum. People who live or have been there will tell you anything you want to know.

Popo you need to contact your local police department for crime information. You can not expect a site like Trulia to list all the crimes in an area. There is not even a link on here to the sexual offenders registry. Do your due diligarnce and go to the source not a third party. You do not want to get in a 'he said, she said" go direct to the source. ... more

Hi Herwig, you should really check with the local Brooklyn/NYPD police and sheriffs departments for this data. They will have the most accurate information. A realtor can't really give you a fully "legal" opinion on this issue for a variety of reasons related to real estate laws and professional liability.

If you need a referral for a really great agent in your area, please contact me through the trulia form.

Craig answered:
I have lived in Garfield Heights for over five years and feel completely safe, although I can only speak to the Crofton Overlook neighborhood. It is a very quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. Garfield Heights is a very convenient place to live. I can get downtown or to most Cleveland suburbs within 20 minutes thanks to its central location and there are several parks within 5 minutes, including CVNP. The new shopping centers add to the convenience factor as well. There are a lot of great real estate values in Garfield Heights right now so I would look at some of the neighborhoods before ruling it out all together. ... more

I hope this link works:

It's for Cleveland magazine's rating the suburbs issue with lots of helpful statistics and details regarding safety and affordability.

Personally I would recommend Mayfield Hts, Univ Hts, Lyndhurst, Beachwood, Streetsboro, Twinsburg.
Stay away from S. Euclid, Euclid, Wickliffe, Clev Hts, Shaker Hts, Ohio City, Tremont & anything within Cleveland city limits.
