Hi,

I am considering buying a house in warren. I would appreciate if anyone who is living there or has lived there before would like to share your insight about neighborhood (subdivision) information. Which area in warren do you think is better to live in? My priority concern is safety (I love walking in the neighborhood after dinner) and overall house value (if it can at least hold its current value). Thanks.

Generally, the houses on the north side have more value and are newer.

Usually, north of 696 is where crime is lower. The area around the south west corner from about Van Dyke and 9 Mile seems like the sketchiest area of the city (not saying it's dangerous).

The south side is also more blue-collar than the north side and likely won't improve much in value anytime soon.

I don't live there but go to work everyday there. North of 696 is the safest. I like the the north east area as well as the north west corner, they seem quieter, lots of tree lined streets and looks very clean. I would stay away from anything that touches Van Dyke ave, too much traffic, too industrial, too dirty.

North of 11, east of Hoover seems the most solid. NW Warren is more ethnically diverse, if you care either way about it. Sterling Heights doesn't cost much more for the same houses and is a bit more desirable.
