It depends, a lot of time that far south it goes block by block. There is A LOT of rehab going on 4-5 blocks north. Eventually this is going to be next wave of rehabs however in all honesty its not their yet HOWEVER this is a great price to get into the area at this point. They recently just reduced the price as well.

Let me know if you have any questions. Are you preapproved?

Overall, Realtors are prohibited by law from telling you whether or not any specific neighborhood is safe. It’s called “steering” and we are prohibited by our code of ethics and federal law from providing such information. Here are a couple posts that explain more:

NO STEERING ALLOWED: 3 Important Facts To Know As A Buyer
http://www.trulia.com/blog/carl_medford/2010/03/no_steering_allowed_3_important_facts_to_know_as_a_buyer

Don’t Get ‘Steered’ in the Wrong Direction
http://sanleandrotimes.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3462:dont-get-steered-in-the-wrong-direction-&catid=7:examples&Itemid=121

However, we CAN tell you where to go to get information. In your case, for crime statistics, go to the following sites:

Rick Musto answered:
Best thing to do is check the local public safety website, for example in Cumming it is either the Forsyth County Sheriff or the City of Cumming Police, depending on where the property is. I will say that in general Cumming is a safe city, truly a suburb community of Atlanta.

I would be happy to show you properties and give you more information about the community. Give me a call when you get a minute!

Ron Thomas answered:
It is one thing to ask if there is crime;
It is quite another thing to ask us WHY?

Realtors cannot comment on crime, in either case;
Just like Religion and Race, if we commented, positively or negatively, it could be called "Steering" and a Realtor could be sanctioned for it.

Use your GOOGLE and research the crime yourself..

Dear JWilkinson,
You ask a question we hear often. I wrote a post to answer that very concern. It's pasted below. Feel free to also browse my site for other helpful FAQ topics: www.FindHousesDCMetro.com
Researching an area to move is probably the first thing you as home buyers do when wanting to move. The research often begins with the houses, and prices. If you like the homes for the price, then many buyers make searching community amenities and perhaps schools next.

Now comes the time to have the REALTOR take you out and tour the homes researched. Wondering if your research has been accurate you ask the agent “How is this area?” At which point you should imagine hearing the sounds of a mack truck’s screeching breaks trying to stop before hitting the itty bitty car in front of them. What I mean by this is did you know that it is a violation for us REALTORS to comment on any neighborhood, community, city, region, or even schools. That’s right. We could be accused of trying to “steer” certain people into certain neighborhoods by answering questions like “What are the demographics here?” Or “What is the crime rate here?”

To find these answers call the local police department. Google the local crime reports, which often will populate by entering an address alone. Drive the areas at different times and include early morning trips to gain an idea of traffic to and from your office if you’d be in rush hour traffic. I had a client rent a hotel room one night near the house she was considering to get a feel for the community and commute to work. She shopped the nearby malls, ate at an area restaurant, walked the local park, and left the hotel for work in the morning. What a great idea to get hands on research.

Do your own investigating and ask neighbors in the community. With the Internet, everything you’d want to know is at your fingertips from community reports, school report cards, US Census reports, employment / employers and more. Just remember, you shouldn’t seek this information from a licensed Real Estate Professional. A home purchase is a big investment lasting years. Do your homework in advance.

Regards,
Ariana Loucas RE/MAX

You will need to check with the East Precinct of the Jersey City Police Dept. They can give you the crime stats for that area. Good Luck!
