Hi Angie,

Check out Trulia's Crime Maps to get a sense of what Crime is like all over Nashville:

Agents can't comment on things like that. Your best bet is to research that info online.

Realtors aren't aloud to comment on crime and safety of a specific area, but at the bottom of this email I will provide you with a link that will help you gather that information. If you aren't working with a realtor I highly recommend that you do, because in the end you will most likely work with one but it will be the sellers realtor when you could have interviewed and chosen your own. As a buyer the seller pays your realtors commission if you have any questions about how that or any other part of the process works I would be happy to walk you through it. Feel free to call or email me any time.

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.

Hello Sid, I live in the Cherokee Park/Richland area and have never had any concerns about crime here. What I would suggest for you to do is go online to: Nashville.gov and then click on the Interactive Crime Map. I think you will be pleased with what you find there related to crime in that general area. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions regarding these neighborhoods! Have a good rest of the day!

You can always call Davidson County Police Department (Metro) and ask about specific areas. I'm sure they also have a website that will tell you information about each area. I don't know the particular website but would be happy to find it out for you . It's 11:20 on Saturday night and it will be tomorrow before I can check for you. If you would like to email me your name and phone number and email address I will send you this information. I have a file with this type of information in it, but it is at my Keller Williams office.
If you are looking at specific homes for sale in these areas please let me know the addresses and that will also help. You may also go to my www.dinacollins.com website which is linked to home searches and my Keller Williams home page.

Keep in mind opinions are often suggestive--If you are not familiar with the area, why not drive through the neighborhood more than once and at different times of day, get a sense of belonging, chat with locals if the opportunity arises, look at everything that is important to you, and if safety is a concern, the best source of information is the local police department, why not visit/call and ask all your questions, then make a determination, will your comfort level be reached. ... more

This link will send you to a page where you can find an interactive crime site map. The link will be at the bottom left of the page. You need to disable pop-ups to view the page. Once you click it, there will be a disclaimer that you need to click through. You can then retrieve comprehensive crime information based on your location. ... more

Hi Peggy!

The Villages of Brentwood is a lovely community; I lived right around the corner on Huntington Parkway when I first moved to Nashville many years ago and loved it over there. That area has just gotten better and better over the years with Nippers Corner, Maryland Farms, the new Wal-Mart Supercenter, and let’s not forget that you are smack in the middle of 2 major Interstates; you can get anywhere you would want to be, Downtown, Cool Springs, Murfreesboro, within minutes!

I pulled the closest listing to 363 and it shows the association fee at $2, which is an odd amount. I called the listing agent to verify, but did not get an answer. If you are looking to purchase in that area, the only word of caution I would give is that existing homes are not appreciating as fast as other areas in Nashville; this is most likely due to all the new construction - Lenox Village, Cane Ridge, etc. which makes resale harder. But, if you plan to be in that area 3 years or longer, you should be ok.

Assuming your question about it being a mixed neighborhood refers to ethnic or racial diversity, the best way for you to get that information is to go to the school website www.mnps.org and find out what schools you are zoned for at that address. Then you can pull the report for those schools. The demographic breakdown is under School Data and they give you a couple of years of information which is nice because you can see trends if there are any. If you have any trouble with that, I would be happy to walk you through it, just give me a call 615-525-7653.

Peggy, no matter where you choose to live, awareness is your best defense, so you will want to check out crime info before you commit to any area; there is an interactive crime map at http://pdmap2.police.nashville.org and a really good sex-offender map at www.familywatchdog.us .

Hope this has helped; happy searching! ~ Kathleen
