Lauren, there are many options in Hampden within your price range, but they may not have the 2 bathrooms you desire. I live just up Falls Road from there & Mt. Washington and have much experience in my 11 years showing & selling those neighborhoods.
The next best step really is to have a Buyer Counseling Session where you & an agent sit down for an hour or two and you both discover what the best house/area/etc may be for you. By learning your needs, a professional agent can help you to understand what is out there and what may or may not work for you.
It is true that we, as agents, cannot speak of safe areas & school districts. Maryland law prevents us from doing so, because, honestly, what *I* may feel is safe or good may *not* be so in your opinion.
As mentioned in another answer, you can search the Baltimore City police website ( http://www.baltimorepolice.org/your-community/crime-map
) to track crime in each area. It is broken down by zip code and location. It even tells you what type has happened there! You can also feel free to visit the local station. The police are very helpful and really care about their districts!
As for schools, a good place to check is a website called greatschools.net . You can enter school info and it tells you the national scores, etc. As a heads up, not all schools have their ratings on there, I am not certain why.
Please let me know how I can be of further service.
