I am not a resident, but my Daughter and Son in Law bought a home in Palmer Woods about 9 months ago. I baby sit for them 3 days a week so I am in the neighborhood quite a bit. It's a beautiful area and I was impressed on how well the homes are maintained. Palmer Woods is a nice area of the city, I have never felt insecure or worried about my safety. My Daughter is into running marathons and jogs all around the area without fear. With regards to groceries, I usually shop in Ferndale or Royal Oak which is only a mile or two up Woodward. My grandson will be starting pre school in a couple of weeks around the Wayne State area and will have to be driven. The only con so far has been is there isn't any playgrounds that we can walk to so we have to drive to parks for him to play. Hope this gives you some insight.

Good Afternoon!! You can contact the Detroit Police Department for crime stats in the area and they'll be glad to give them to you. For the schools go to Palmer Woods is a beautiful area. With the market being in the condition it is currently in, now is the time to buy since home prices are below market value. Get yourself a buyers agent to assit you in your seach. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Good Luck and Welcome Back to Detroit.

Hi April! Good choice. Palmer Woods is THE premier neighborhood in Detroit. You might want to consider buying under market value from an investor instead of at market value from a realtor. Welcome back to the D!

It's a great area. Have shown many a fine home there. One of my fellow Coldwell Banker agents lives in the neighborhood and if you contact me, I can put you in touch with him.
