This is one of those questions you will have to find the answer yourself, however there are many great websites available to help you in this search. Others have listed a few but there is one you must check every time you want to know about a house or area and that is: http://www.homefacts.com
Do not make an offer on a house until you check this website. I would recommend driving thru the area at different times of the day and even on the weekend. It doesn't matter where you live, crime is there but that doesn't mean it isn't a great place to live.
I wish you the very best in your search. Owning a home is one of the best things a person will do in their lives.
