On a scale of 1-10 how safe is the 'Orchard Park' neighborhood?

What is the best way to figure out how safe an area is to buy a house?

Hi,

Most realtors are not going to be able to discuss whether a street/neighborhood is "safe" or not with you.
What you feel is "safe" may be deemed "unsafe" by another person. I tell my clients to check stats on city and state websites as well as contact the local police department to discuss crime stats. 
Also walk the neighborhood and talk to the neighbors.  They may give you honest details - asking actual residents of the neighborhood can go a long way and give insights that go far beyond statistics.

Good luck!

My sentiments exactly. Tks for confirmation.

There are some stats which each home viewed, but only for 2 weeks. I've been living in the same neighboord for 15yrs; 12+ in this duplex. It is safe and quiet. It's REALLY hard to leave. Or to know if I even want to.   

tks Daniel

Since "safe" is a relative term, that's a difficult question to answer.

Crime statistics for any neighborhood should be available through the local police department.
