I would recommend that you go to the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s department and research their crime maps and statistics. The website is

Also, feel free to call and speak with a sheriff’s deputy, they will be more than willing to discuss the tougher neighborhoods in the Live Oak areas and the potential for criminal activities.

The Live Oak area of Santa Cruz does have some tougher neighborhoods, but is also has some really nice communities as well. Be sure to hook up with an area specialist who can enlighten you with the housing opportunities of this quaint Santa Cruz community.

I hope this helps!

Dear Peter. Yes it can be scary right now in the real estate market if you do not know the "in's and out's" and the legal aspects of a transaction. That is why is is good to have a reputable and experienced agent on your side. There are a lot of scams going on and we need to be careful to not believe everything that is told to us.
