Hello Arlene,
I suggest that you contact the local police in Kingman to hear first hand what the crime rate is and the types being committed. They are your best accurate source.
Below, is the link to the Kingman police department and also a web site that has information on crime activity that might also be helpful to you:

Best wishes!

What subdivision do you live in? I believe you would be better off on Google Maps than to ask a message board on Trulia.

Best of luck.

Dylan J. Fitzpatrick answered:
Hi there -- I used to live in that area on Bryn Mawr Rd. I lived there for 3 years and really enjoyed the area. My street was wide, tree lined, and had street lights so it felt very safe at night. All the neighbors were very friendly as well. However, it did seem as though some of the surrounding streets were a little bit sketchy. As with most areas of central Tucson, the neighborhoods are mixed income. I hope this was at least a little bit helpful! Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you make your decision.

Hello Michael,
There are currently 18 homes on the market in Sabino Springs ranging from 1333 square feet to 2787 square feet and priced between $235,000 and $545,000. There is only one short sale there and no foreclosures at this point in time. The homes were built in the late 1990's early 2000's and have beautiful views to the Catalina Mountains. You're a Narragansett person, accustomed to the water, you can change that out for gorgeous desert and mountains. If you need help, check my website at or e mail me at ... more

Spirit Messingham answered:
Great question, I would call them and ask. If you go to site to visit, I strongly urge you to bring your Realtor with you as new builds are nortorious for trying to get buyers to sign with no agent, and they pocket the difference. Work with a local Realtor, ask for references.

You may want and like a "new build" and if that is your preference, that is fine. However, I would also like to point out in our Tucson Market there are a lot of inventory, REOS and etc where a lot of the time, buyers can get what they want and get more for than money than a "new build".

I have worked with a lot of out of state buyers, if you are interested please click on my profile and drop me a line. Best of luck.
