HI Silena an agent should not discuss matters that doesn't pertain to the condition of the home unless it is a material fact. It is a very delicate situation. But a good Realtor can guide you to the information you need. I direct my clients to this website http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/nc/fayetteville/crime/. It will help you make a informed decision about a neighborhood before you buy a home. I suggest if you decide again on buying a home before you purchase do these things to help you. 1.Talk to the neighbors. See if they are friendly or not. 2. Drive through the neighborhood after 11pm. This is when you will see the most activity on the streets. 3. Then use a website, most crimes especially minor ones are usually not reported. 4. Last but not least, if you will not feel comfortable walking down the roads at 2pm at night in that particular neighborhood, then I wouldn't feel safe. I hope this helps you out in the future.
