When selling our home is it better for us to lower the cost of our home or to offer the buyer money to repair the house? I want to walk away debt free
I would suggest lowering the cost of the home, taking needed repairs into account.

Cat Funk, Real Estate Pro in Beavercreek, OR
Cat Funk answered:
I'm a buyer and my real estate agent gave me a portion of her commission. She also sent me a 1098 recently. Is this taxable?
Yes
It's the only way she could give you any of her commission.
It's not legal in some states.
It is income you must claim on your taxes.

how bad is crime rate in this area?
Crime rate isn't bad. Parking is horrible due to too many people living in "single family dwelling".
