Rather than the specific spot, I'd avoid buying where there is a multi family building next door. I'd also suggest checking Megan's Law website for registered sex offenders. Press Telegram has a crime map also. But saying all that, there are no guarantees in life. Bad things happen in good neighborhoods. Look for a nice, well-kept street. Try to buy the "worst" house in the "best" location, meaning curb appeal and work needed.
Get a nice dog, not a vicious one, and if you are still worried, get an alarm system. Have your agent give you a neighborhood breakdown.
If you are still nervous, perhaps you should consider a condo with security. But the bad people could be in the same complex with you. LOL.
It is always location,location, location. Try to avoid a busy street, try to get as much land as possible, Avoid living next to apartment buildings (mostly because their balconies might look down into your backyard, and your privacy is less. But look at your price range and do the best you can. Home ownership is rewarding. Become active on your street, and just one neighbor can help upgrade everyone else's house and community. Wrigly has a lot of charm.
