Hi Jerry,
As stated in someone else's answer, licensed real estate associates are constrained by the Fair Housing Act from commenting or expressing any opinion that could "steer" someone's or be considered discriminatory "...concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, gender, disabilities and families with children."
Your best recourse is to do your own research and form your own conclusions; visit the area at different times of day, consult local government and law enforcement agencies, etc. YOu may also find more in-depth, impartial information and statistics on just about any area on

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

As Danielle said, Realtors can't answer this question for you. I'd suggest calling the local police, ... rather than looking on the internet. Talking to someone will give you the best idea of what it's really like.

Also, drive by on a Saturday morning and you'll see all of your potential neighbors out washing cars and running errands. See how friendly they are. Ask them questions. You'll have a gut feel whether this is the right neighborhood for you.

Good luck!

No one can answer that question except you. Real estate licensees are prohibited from discussing crime or race. Drive by the properties you're interested in, contact the local police and sheriff's department.
