It was set up to be a nice area. It is now turning into a rental haveen. Just go to the grocery stores there Frys and Safe Way during the evening. Had my A/C unit stolen, a rock through my window, and a constant music bass blast every weekend. I bought the house in 2008 in a brand new housing development laveen farms.

I would say to any winter visitor looking for a winter home: only buy in a gated community. Wehn you can't watch it all year, you may want a sense of security to know that not just anyone can come and go. Also, in general, most of your neighbors would want security too. So they may be mroe inclined to watch your home for you. I live in a gated community here, and woud not change that.

Hi Curiousgeorge,
Buying a home has a lot of responsibilities and you are the only one can make this decision regarding the area but here is some helpful website to check crime rates

Hope it helps.

Hi George,
In regard to safety concerns I strongly suggest you consult the City of Phoenix crime statistic website http://phoenix.gov/APPINTRO/crimesta.html
Some parts of Laveen receive services from the city of Phoenix and some parts are covered by Maricopa county. You need to check the zip code or address of the home you are interested in.
As a real estate agent we cannot legally tell you if a neighborhood is nice or safe, and don't bother calling 911, they won't tell you either. It's a personal judgment call.

Sorry I can't be of more help, but want to make sure you get accurate information.

Good luck,
Susan Ellis
