It doesn't hurt to call the local police station and ask their opinion regarding crime rate in specific areas within their community.

Us as realtors cannot talk about crime rates per fair housing regulations. I suggest calling the police station and asking them how a certain area is.

Send me an email or give me a call with any questions.

Thank you for getting back to me, I really like the property that I found but I was told by a person that this neighborhood was bad and that it had a good amount of crimes such as theft, assault and burglaries so that was my concern. Looking up on Trulia crime rates for that property it had some listings of recent calls..and I checked for other properties around the same area no crimes were listed. Which I found very weird?? any advise on this?

I am a local realtor. I actually live less than a Half a mile from this property. I like the area, that's my personal preference as it is close to the highway and many stores and such. If Crime rates & schools are your concern check out &

Like anywhere else in the world-it is neither good nor bad. It is only what you think it is that matters.
Many nice people live there. I have helped some of them buy homes here.
Do you mean value for the cost or crime or schools or communting or shopping or construction or noise or what is important to you?
I can give you a tour of some of your best housing options whenever you want. I have been a local Realtor for 28 years. call me to talk in person sometime.
