Is Oviedo a safe area to buy a home?

Relocating to UCF and want to stay within half hour from my job. Is the Oviedo area a safe place to purchase a home? How are the schools? Do they have any gated communities in price range of 350k to 450k? Any ideas of a good neighborhood in which to buy in Oviedo?

I think you are asking if buying in Oviedo is a "safe" real estate investment. According to Zillow's market data Oviedo is leading Seminole County with home values, you can read the article here.

We have lived in and around Oviedo for the last 28 years and raised out family here, we love it.

No agent can legally tell you if a place is a "safe community". For them as professionals, it violates Fair Housing law. You will have to make the call on your own, with the help of local residents and from website information. This site city-data here has good information and forums where you can ask locals what they think about schools and crime. I have had good luck there and have found out things that I would not have known.

There is also this site zipskinny here that has good information. You can get crime reports from a site like this here in map form. The local police station will also be able to give you guidance on they types of calls they get for each neighborhood area here. It looks like the schools in that area are pretty good according to this site here, but again agents cannot really talk about schools that are bad so check them out for yourself with the FL state here or on a site like greatschools here. Hopefully someone local will chime in and be able to help answer questions about the Oviedo area. Hope the links help.
