Your best bet would be to go to your local sheriff's office website and request the crime stats from there. As agents, we are not allowed to tell anyone whether or not an area is "safe". I hope this helps! ... more

I'm sure some agents from that area will weigh in on the availability of homes in that zip code.

Just a note, though: $15,000 doesn't get you too far. It might economically re-do a kitchen. Or two baths. You could spend half that on painting and carpeting alone. So be careful what properties you consider.

One other possibility: Ask about 203(k) loans. They're FHA loans that include both the purchase price and rehab costs.

Hope that helps.

Anne Rubin answered:
I am particularly interested in the part of the question that asks, "Is the neighborhood in?" There are some web sites that you can go to and find out information about the area as well as crime statistics. Speaking to the neighbors directly will help you gather more information and determine their level of friendliness. I welcome your phone call to discuss this in depth more. Good luck with the buying process ... more
