Avoid the north end. Anything Crawford or south of it, is generally safe. Avoid airport apartments, it's next to a homeless shelter and in the industrial area.

Just to be clear, Greater Auburndale is a neighborhood in Topeka city limits (near Potwin), it is NOT the same as the town of Auburn.

It is located in one of our smaller lake subdivisions. Sales have generally been slower than areas due to the availability of rural water and septic systems. it is quiet and clean in the subdivision except it does have dirt roads. Crime in Manhattan has never been a problem and is less of a problem out in the country. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) 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/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

This is a terrific site for crime rate data. I think you can search by city or by zip code.

Ken Schmidt answered:
While I am unsure whether the KBI has a state-wide interactive crime map, you may visit most of the websites for larger cities in Kansas and each generally have a link for a local interactive crime map. Alternately, you can perform a Google search for, "(fill in the blank city) interactive crime map" and find maps that normally include crime statistics, dates of offense and individual descriptions as needed.

Good luck!

If you are referring to the map that shows the crime in the area - it is just showing that this area had one violent crime reported to the police in that area - .. if you want to know more about the nature of that one crime you would need to contact the local police department.

I hope that helps.

if you are looking for a rental, i have a business colleague who can help you find a rental property - just shoot me an email with your phone number/text and i will have her call you.

Paul Rosales answered:
You may move out if you wish. However, please know that sometimes a lender will send inspectors to short sale homes to verify occupancy. If the inspector finds a home vacant they may execute the lenders right to secure, manage & even winterize the property. This can lead to a filing of foreclosure or if a foreclosure is already underway it may lead to a foreclosure acceleration. When they secure the property they may have the right to enter the home and remove any personal property they find if it is deemed detrimental to the property. ... more

John Chaney answered:
Because God's Word says "that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step." Jeremiah 17:23
Man tries to please God and men, but he falls short. And that is why the Scripture says, " For we all stumble many times." James 3:2
This brings us to the conclusion that we need God's Kingdom to come. A perfect government ruled by a perfect King. Matthew 6:9,10
Acts 34:1 says, "God is not partial." Therefore he does not see lines to divide us.
Under God's Kingdom Rule everyone is created equal. Thus, Romans 12:8 applies, "Do not YOU people be owing anybody a single thing, except to love one another; for he that loves his fellowman has fulfilled [the] law. 9 For the [law code], “You must not commit adultery, You must not murder, You must not steal, You must not covet,” and whatever other commandment there is, is summed up in this word, namely, “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does not work evil to one’s neighbor; therefore love is the law’s fulfillment."

Reenie West answered:
People sell their homes for all kinds of reasons. Job transfers, divorce, health reasons, death, birth, down sizing, up sizing whatever. Some sellers have been waiting and watching the market to put their homes up for sale. One school of thought is "if my neighbor puts their home up for sale and I have been thinking of selling; their home may sell my home so I'll list it and see what happens". If you look in all the neighborhoods in Wichita you will find multiple homes for sale. One popular area has 44 homes for sale. As far as safety, the best answer was from the Agent in NY, speak with the police department if you have concerns. ... more
