As realtors we are not allowed to give opinions about the safety or crime of any property. One of the best ways to find out would be to physically drive around the neighborhood at different times so see if you are comfortable with what you see and feel. I see you are writing from Temple, TX and it may not be easy to drive down here any any given time.
Check out www.crimereports.com. It will give you some idea of what you might be looking for.
Give me a call or send me an email and I can give you more information about the properties you are interested in. I will also educate you on the transaction process if you are interested.
