I, too, would suggest doing your own research into the area, speaking with people who currently live there, and determining your own level of comfort when it comes to safety. However, online crime rating sites don't give it good ratings. AreaVibes.com gives it an F for crime rate. I would also suggest checking sites such as www.crimereports.com and Trulia's property overview for the area (http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Talbot%27s_Corner-Nashville/6075/). Best of luck in your home search!
