I am actually taking my client by this complex today. I am familiar with the area and grew up nearby. Feel free to email or call me and I can give you more information on the property / complex later this afternoon. I can also help you in previewing this or any other properties as well.
I believe you should see a neighborhood at different hours of the day to really make a decision if an area is right for you. Since everyone has their own opinion of what may be a suitable area for them. I would love to talk to you more about the area and some experiences I've had with client's who've purchased in areas they were on the fence about but ended up loving their home because the complexes were clean and safe.
All the best,
It's your call after reviewing the crime stats. Drive through the area at different times of the day, evening and on the weekend to see the activity in the neighborhood.
It's new contruction, but you should use your own agent to protect your interests. The agent representing the builder is looking after the builders interest.
You can give me a call at 310-647-7785 to discuss this further if you'd like.
