Hi. Crame rate is calculated by City not area. Your best bet is calling the local police station.

Depending on the reason- will determine your plan of action. Contact your bank and see if you can work out an agreement-whatever they ask you to produce,documents,letters etc.etc.. Whatever happened to cause the situation -health reasons, medical bills,loss of job, separation, etc, etc,etc. if you know that will not be getting better, consider putting on the market before all is lost.

Don Sherman answered:
Hello Taiwo
I understand considering moving to any area is an important decision but fexeral law prohibits real estate agents from making comments about areas.Another point is one person will like an area & another person may not.It is a personal preference. I can suggest to go online & google Mayfair and you will see information about the area.You can also go to the Philadelphia police dept. website.
Please contact me regarding your real
estate needs.
I am a lifelonv resident of Philadelphia with 15 yrs fulltime experience in real estate.

Anna M Brocco answered:
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.

Gail Gladstone answered:

Realtors are not allowed to comment on neighborhoods or schools, but can be the source of the source.

I recommend that you check in at the local police precinct and see what history they show for crime rate in the area. ... more

Beth Kane CRS, ABR GRI,RESE,CDPE answered:
When you ask is this home safe for my kid there are several answers. First if you mean crime rate in the area, then it is best to contact the local police station to get the neighborhood recent crime statics.
If you are speaking about the actual house structure itself, then a home inspection prior to purchase would reveal any structual issue.

Voices Member answered:
hi abdelilah dehry, even though i know exactly what you're asking and know what you intend, i can't answer your question. here's why:

my definition of good may be bad to others and visa versa. second, i can't persuade clients to certain areas or detract them from other areas for fear of 'block-busting' or 'red-lining'. so... to prevent this, give me parameters to work within and i can find you exactly what you want.

go ahead and give me a call, we can interview each other to see if we're a good fit.

My NC Homes Team answered:
Only you can really answer this question, as someone who lives here in Durham I would tell you that the crime rate here for a city this size is actually among the lowest in the state. I have had many clients attend NCCU and have never heard from any of them that they have had any problems. I would also anticipate that with a group of younger teens there will be chaperons with them at all times and this would be a wonderful experience for her. ... more

Rodney Mason answered:
Real Estate Agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a Real Estate Agent.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)

Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a Real Estate Agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include:

Reasons Why A Real Estate Agent Cannot Comment……

These links should be able to provide some of the answers you are seeking.

Ronald Cullinan answered:
Sara, all you can do is show your clients how to find the data and let them make up their own mind. To do anything else, leaves you open to liability problems for someone else's bad decisions.

Personally, I think of Canyon Creek as one of the nicer neighborhoods in NW Austin, so I'm surprised at this data you've provided.
