I lived in Fresno 30 years out of my 42 years alive. There has always been more crime in the area then others. The criminals would literally come across town to break into garages and cars in the wealthier parts of town. At one time I read a statistic that you had a 1 in 30 chance of having your car stolen in Fresno. I had mine stolen 3 times in a few years. There was nothing special about the car other than I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Generally the northern parts of Fresno are wealthier with less crime. The south can be pretty rough and really rough if you pick the right spot. Fresno has a unique variety of cultures and some of these cultures are stuck in poverty. It creates a situation where extremely poor people are living in areas where they would not normally be able to afford. Example: the area near Fresno state can be very bad. The apartments near there are run down and house people that just don't have much money. Drive around the neighborhood at night and pay attention to weirdos walking around. Generally if there are a bunch of people walking around at night you probably want to avoid that area. ... more

Hello Janet,
I do believe that this is a scam. I am a real estate agent here in Fresno and looked up the property. It is currently not listed and was last sold 10/14/2009 for 142k. If you are currently looking for property I would be more than happy to help you find something and elevate you being worried about a scam. Remember a buyers agent is always free to the buyer. My commission comes form the seller an is previously negotiated prior to listing. Please feel free to call or email me any time.

I am black and would never ever live in that area, tried it once when I first moved to Fresno and had nothing but problems. I wouldn't live there and especially wouldn't want any children of mine living there. ... more

I hate it when folks answer a question with a question, but darn.......... this question prompts me to ask many more questions! I would forego the research and call in the preacher :))

I would be concered about stating what areas I think are safer, but many families look into the North West and North East parts of town. My suggestion is to contact your local Police Dept to find out type of crime in any areas that you are looking, also go on the Megan's law site to see if there are any sex offenders in the area you are looking. (It's too bad we have to check those type of things out, but it is what it is) Happy house hunting! ... more
