I wish it was easier to get a grasp on the crime in any particular area. There are web-sites that reportedly provide buyers or renters useful crime stats. The problem most of the data is several years old and not a indication of current crime. Comment sections are not a good indication either. There are people who hate everything or people who do not want you to move next door to them. They exaggerate or paint a picture that is not true. As a Realtor/Broker the fines and loss of career are too steep a price to pay for stepping over the lines. You must understand we work in a industry that the mere interpretation of words can be used to fine you thousands of dollars or completely take away your ability to make a living. Finding relevant information is not easy and there is not one place you can get what you are looking for. Police blotters are easily accessed in my area. Another method is the state police posts sexual predators residences. I provide links to find the information and the same can be said of schools. In the end that is all I can do. ... more

Hi Sandra,

Are you planning on using your fiance's VA entitlement to buy your new home with a no money down VA mortgage? Are you planning on being on the mortgage with him? If so there are couple of things that you need to discuss with lender (like me) before you apply for your pre-approval.

Most agents will request a pre-approval letter from you before they'll invest too much of their time working with you.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Not much else you can do other than A. Move or B. Make sure you have insurance and it covers everything in your apartment. . There's not much else that can be done, if it's an apartment that allows smoking, then she has much a right to be there as you. If anything you can ask her to quit, but if she doesn't care then she doesn't care and will continue to. If it's such a concern to you then you should probably just move to a different apartment. ... more

Talk to some of your potential neighbors.

Also, you can check the city’s police department website – they often report more detailed crime rate information.

News in local newspapers will help you to picture the situation in the area. ... more

Because law enforcement in that area is far more concentrated on Civil Asset Forfeiture than solving violent crime.

I live on Washington St. (lower numbers) and crime definitely exists here.
I have personally witnessed fights almost nightly outside my building during the summer after the bars close, I have had a chained up Vespa scooter stolen from me about a year ago, and there was a homicide on River St (not too far away from here) about 4 years ago when I first moved to Haverhill which was a drug deal gone wrong. Helicopters in the air, and emergency vehicles everywhere.
If you're looking to stay away from criminal behavior, try Bradford or Georgetown. It's still close, but safer and quieter.
If you're anywhere near downtown Haverhill, there WILL be disturbances, and it may involve you.
