I looked up crime statistics for the neighborhood, and it turns out there are two sex offenders living there. Both of them abused minors, and one of them has done it three different times! I was considering renting a house in that neighborhood until I saw that. Now I think I will look elswhere. I would not feel safe raising a family with them there and I'm sure that's why some of the houses sold and why the house I was looking at has had to taker for almost a year despite a low asking price.
