I'm relocating from a college town in MO to Greenville. I understand that they are similar in terms of crime rates.

I'm looking to rent a 2bed/2bath house in a safer area (around $600-800). I have couple of fancy cars and definitely want a garage.

I was wondering if the following areas are considered "safer" in Greenville

1. 100 Haven Dr
2. 100 Lake rd

The other question would be - Which areas would you strongly recommend to avoid renting a house? Is there a detailed map I can find on the internet so that I can cross those areas out?
Any response would be highly appreciated.

Although its been diversifying some in recent years, a large portion of economic activity still focuses around the Univserity in Greenville.

Western and Northern Greenville are where much of the crime is. But keep in mind, depending on what you mean by "fancy", if a would be thief sees something that they want badly enough, they will follow to your house and steal it out of your garage no matter what part of town you live in. This happened to a friend of mine with a nice motorcycle.

can anyone elaborate "western and northern" area on the areas that are not the greatest to live/rent in Greenville. Is it just a certain area in that direction? Thanks

North of the River, following 264 bypass around to Greenville Blvd.

And "western" is from Uptown, south of the river, to the medical district to probably Greenville Blvd ish.

"Western" and "Northern" aren't official locations, but that is where to stay away.

I won't say what this map is, but this is a good reference.

I realize that "Western" and "Northern" aren't official locations, but it is nice to have clarification. Thanks

My lease is up May 1. I'm not sure if I will be staying in Columbia, or moving somewhere else in MO. I finish my program in May and will hopefully have a job lined up before then.

coming from mid mo it sounds like greenville is less progressive than Columbia MO. 30 years ago, my daughter moved to asutin, which was a moderate college town, and the growth in Columbia reminds me of Austin.
