Mr Jackson answered:
being that its in this part of the city. I would say mostly drug offenses, its near universities so crimes relating to that kind of crowd. there is crime everywhere, unless by the term crime you mean black people because you're probably a trump supporter, even in the suburbs there is a high suicide and domestic abuse rate. ... more

Jason if you take into account the size of the metro area the fact that we have a river running through our downtown. Also I would venture a guess that at least a third of those were mice. so that means 800 calls how many were repeat and how many were nothing at all. So lets be generous 700 to 1000 calls in a year, How many homes are in the metro area. The answer is over 210,000 residences in the Kansas city metro area. Also where were all the calls located. Were they grouped or spread out equally. Was the reason for the rats due to the homeowners not maintaining their property. ETC ETC ETC. If you do the math thats.005 % of the homes have an issue. Now this much I know the rat population is stronger in the inner city so lets take that residence number down to 30000 that would give you a ,04 % chance of rats. I think the crime rate is much higher than that. We are not even close to the other major cities as far as population compared to rats ... more

Most of the neighbors are Two, Three, some Four Generations deep and have been there a long while. Every body in the neighborhood knows everything that is going on all the time. They know exactly who is coming an going all the time. They are all the nicest and most friendly and respectful folks you could ever want for neighbors. There are many retired folks up and down the street. No problems ever and they expect everyone to keep it that way ! ... more

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.

I have never heard about specific website for Brookside residents but it sounds like a good idea. I live in the heart of Brookside so if there is any information you need about a particular neighborhood or area I would be glad to share with you what I know or find out the answers to any questions you may have.

Let me know,

That is true, City-data is great. It also shows crime statistics. I got mine from MLS. I wonder if City-Data also pulls from MLS?

Hi Christikcrt,

You should check out Trulia's Local Info, specifically the Crime Map feature. There you will able to locate the types of crimes happening down to the city block.

Follow this link to view Center City and be sure to select the correct category on the map to view those stats.

Hope that helps!

If you are talking about the Gladstone/Kansas City, MO Northland area (zip 64117, 64118, 64119) I would say that it is a nice area. There are very good schools, desirable neighborhoods, nice restaurants, shopping, parks,great community center and a friendly aptmosphere. I know my family feels safe in this area!

When I want to know more about an area, I often go to to see what it tells me about a particular zip code. You might try that web site.

Hi Davida,

In Ruskin Heights the bedroom and kitchen sizes vary. Your best option may be to look at the homes in person so you can get accurate measurements. Also, looks like your searching in the South KC area and being that I live in this area I could give you any information you need for your home search. Check out my website when you get a change and feel free to call me with any question you have. Its

Jimmy, I manage hundreds of investment properties for local and out of state investors, the best ROI I've found for my investors is in 64133. School districts make all the difference, turnover costs money, and if they aren't happy they will move.

KCMO has some of the lowest ranked schools in the Nation. Look for rentals in the Center School District or in one of the suburbs like Raytown.

5026 Virginia sold for 147500 back in October of 08. You're right, comps are tough here. Just know your buyer will go through this when getting their financing/appraisal. The fact that there aren't many solds is actually a plus. The neighborhood is really quaint and represents "the Real Kansas City". Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help! ... more
