I would do a little in-depth research of the area, statistics and maybe even spend a day there prior to any major commitment. At the end of the day, it is you and your family who have to be satisfied with the decision made.

Run. Do not walk. Run far far away.

Spend some time snooping around the neighborhood where you intend to buy. Take notice of the comings and goings, carloads of young men riding around may be a warning flag. Is the neighborhood mixed ethnically or is it mostly non-white? If it is the area will surely slide downhill, like Willingboro, NJ did.

Last I heard, license plate readers were going to be mounted on poles in this area.
