Looking to buy. I know the neighborhood is somewhat sketchy. However I myself am used to neighborhoods where you have to be careful who you talk to and you have to lock your doors and have home cameras. I just do not want to live On a street where their will be shootings, murders, etc. most of the crime maps say this neighborhood is right outside the bad areas. thoughts?

If you do not want to be witness to those things then there is no point in living there. It does not mean that any of that would actually happen to you.

Forget the crime stats for a minute. Do you have 20% saved for a down payment? how about 5%? A safety net in case something goes wrong?

One thread you wanted to live in Hampton and commute to Chesapeake because the job you were moving here for didn't pay you enough to afford rent

Now you are asking about buying a house... when you couldn't even afford rent.

And you want to move to a bad neighborhood but don't want to put up with what the crap that normally accompanies living in a bad neighborhood?

I'm not sure what your obsession with moving here is, especially considering you haven't even visited, but you're jumping from one bad situation to another.
