I grew up in this neighborhood, and it is straight hood. If you're not a street person, you will not survive this area. I'm proud of where I'm from, but do not believe the hype. There actually 3 murders including 2 drive byes just blocks away from this home. Do not fall for the lies, the crime is terrible out there. They are trying to build it up, but I wouldn't pay $1000 per month for rent in this neighborhood. ... more

The Supra C500 is a pushbutton combination lockbox... so Realtors would not have access to this lockbox unless someone gave them the combination.

Call the agent you used to buy the property, and ask him/her to contact the prior listing agent, and get them to remove the lockbox. The likelihood is that they just forgot that it's there. If, for some reason, you can't get any results through your agent... or by contacting the agent who originally listed your home... I would follow Scott's advice and get a set of bolt cutters and cut it off and discard it.

Good luck.

Realtors cannot advise on neighborhood safety, quality of schools, crime, etc. because these issues violates Fair Housing laws. You will need to do your own research - explore the neighborhood at different times of the day and on different days; visit the local police department; go to different grocery stores, etc. ... more

I have lived in the 34205 zip code for 30 years. this zip code is part of the NW part of town, the most sought after in Manatee County for its central location, the best schools, no crime, mansions along the river (take a drive down Riverview Blvd.), close to the beaches, the better restaurants, etc. the west side of town is all built out, so for years all the growth has been to the east--sooooo far away from everything and lots of traffic. ... more

Rent is not cheap @ over $1400 for a 3brm. I made the biggest mistake moving in here . ... more
