When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department 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.

Hi Marie,

A real estate saleperson (agent/broker) cannot advise a consumer on the safety and security of a home, street, neighborhood, or city.

If you are working with an agent, ask for specific information or sources for information that will help you to answer the question based on whatever facts you need to do so.
