There wasn't a question asked, but since you wanted info on crime and safety you can go to to check any address that you are considering.

Hi, Kaye!

This is an awkward question to answer because of the Fair Housing Act restrictions placed upon REALTORs. So we can only provide to what is considered to be public knowledge or opinon and make the suggestion that you visit websites like to get an idea of an area. I would also suggest contacting local law enforcement or a resident of the area (which is, hands down, the absolute best thing to do when it is possible).

What I can tell you is that the property is in a high end community in Clay County. The high school that this neighborhood goes to is called Winnetonka High School (something else that you would be able to look up statistics on) and that I have some close clients that live in there now. If you would like, I'll be happy to ask them whether I can have you contact them so that they can give you their impression of the place.

I hope this will be of assistance to you and I hope to hear from you again in the near future.

Anita Eaton answered:
A HUD home is usually an FHA foreclosed home. The purchaser has to be pre-approved for a loan or have proof of funds prior to making a bid on a HUD home. Bids are submitted on-line and all submitted bids are opened on the Bid Open Date. If there are no successful bids on the Bid Open Date then HUD will open bids every 24 hours until they receive a successful bid.

When a bid is accepted the Realtor has approximately 24 hours to get all the signed contracts and proof of funds to the asset manager for review. HUD requires original contract signatures so the contracts need to be sent by an overnight courier.

If, after review by the asset manager, the contract package is satisfactory then they are sent to the HUD Settlement Agent and the home purchase follows the time frame of a traditional home purchase with the exception that HUD requires an 8 day review of closing documents prior to closing. If the lender waits until the closing date on the contracts to generate the HUD-1 Settlement Statement then the purchaser has to request and pay for a 15 day extension.

If there is any other information I can provide you can call me at 816-350-8400 or email me at

Look, no one on Trulia is going to have that kind of an answer for you, and quite frankly, even if they did, they wouldn't answer that online because that makes them liable for a multitude of things that could result in their license being pulled.

If you want crime stat info, contact the local police dept. It is THEIR job,not the Realtor's job, to maintain that data and it's accuracy.

There is crime everywhere, no escaping it!
However I always suggest that my buyers visit

to get specific statistics , weekly, on a particular area.
I also encourage my buyers to visit with the neighbors up and down the block--do they know each other? Have block parties? Are there many renters? Loud parties? etc--that could be an issue in the area where you are looking. ... more
