I've lived in Bayshore for nearly eight years. The robberies were mostly attributed to a teenager whose family - dysfunctional, doncha know - moved out several months ago. There are no recent robberies that I know of.

It seems that burglaries are more common in vacation areas because many of the homes in vacation neighborhoods are vacant more days than they are occupied. In our area, people typically use their vacation homes in the warm 6 months of the year, not so much in the cooler winter months. Bayshores is a nice community and seems to have more year-round residents than summer people. Many people in our area have begun installing burglar alarm systems and creating neighborhood watch groups. I live about 3 miles from Bayshores in a neighborhood that is primarily vacation homes. If you would like further information about the area, or if you are interested in seeing some homes in Baywood, please contact me at myralee448@aol.com.

I would check with the local police department for insight. If you are buying and in need of financing i can provide a report showing how the seller can pay your closing cost and get a reduced market rate.

When it comes to any safety concerns, your best source of accurate and up to the minute information are the local authorities; consider a visit/call and ask all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand.
