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

This is a terrific site for crime rate data. I think you can search by city or by zip code.

Paul Rosales answered:
You may move out if you wish. However, please know that sometimes a lender will send inspectors to short sale homes to verify occupancy. If the inspector finds a home vacant they may execute the lenders right to secure, manage & even winterize the property. This can lead to a filing of foreclosure or if a foreclosure is already underway it may lead to a foreclosure acceleration. When they secure the property they may have the right to enter the home and remove any personal property they find if it is deemed detrimental to the property. ... more

Eli answered:
It only runs 12 hours a day. So, and only two buses run every half hour. The others run every hour. There are no back up buses so if one bus is late, it misses the connectiions with all other buses and you are late. Not a reliable way to get to work, but on an off day when you had a couple of places to go, its not bad. ... more

Reenie West answered:
People sell their homes for all kinds of reasons. Job transfers, divorce, health reasons, death, birth, down sizing, up sizing whatever. Some sellers have been waiting and watching the market to put their homes up for sale. One school of thought is "if my neighbor puts their home up for sale and I have been thinking of selling; their home may sell my home so I'll list it and see what happens". If you look in all the neighborhoods in Wichita you will find multiple homes for sale. One popular area has 44 homes for sale. As far as safety, the best answer was from the Agent in NY, speak with the police department if you have concerns. ... more

Lot's of traffic! I sold my house on first street, hated the noise, the cars, the ensuing dust.
I have no doubt that the new arena will contribute to the problem.

If the home is currently on the market, you should be able to obtain this information from the listing agent (the name & telephone number on the yard sign).
