Many of the neighborhoods you mentioned in your first statement may suit you well, especially with your price range. I wouldnt recommend the Southside. If were talking about distinct neighborhoods the Southside would probably be considered the area to the immediate south of Downtown. Its rather rough. I probably wouldnt say its the worst area of Toledo, but it doesnt rank very high. You're not interested in that. Most of the places you named are in the northern half of Toledo, which would put you a little further away from Bowling Green, but its not that big of a difference I guess.

I would recommend looking in the Heatherdowns-Glendale area of South Toledo. Youre pretty much on the far south end of the city, close to the suburb of Maumee, which I would also recommend. Ryan would be a better authority on home prices, but to me for a younger couple like yourselves, perhaps some of the neighborhoods off of Heatherdowns and Glendale would be good for you, like maybe around Heatherdowns and Byrne. Mostly, modest sized, ranch style homes, that while not particularly new, are probably relatively affordable. Im not aware of any profound crime problems in that area. The closer you gravitate toward Airport Hwy, in South Toledo, you might come into contact with more crime problems. The Beverly area is quite decent as well. Im not entirely sure how many homes come in at your price range, probably more than I suspect, but im sure you would like that area as well.

Do be careful in west Toledo...Although I love it dearly, it is not going to appreciate in value. I've watched values decline way too rapidly ====more then most areas. There is gang activity all the way to Eleanor, and break ins are increasing. Good homes--yes, but not for a young family starting out. Try Oregon--some nice homes at good prices. If you don't mind fixing up a home, do look in Perrysburg--it will put you in close proximity to BGSU--and don't negate Bowling Green..some great house values there as well Good Luck!

I have seen young couples buying houses in Beverly... it is a very family-friendly place and has sidewalks, which many new developments, for whatever reason, don't have. The last thing I need is another excuse not to get exercise. Beverly has retained its value fairly well, but there are a sprinkling of good deals.

Beverly is a legitimate neighborhood. A fairly decent mix of what I would consider everything from Low/Middle-Middle Class to Lower-Upper Class along River Rd. I enjoy this area. Its on the far south end of Toledo, adjacent to Maumee pretty much. Its pretty much the areas off of the Anthony Wayne Trail, south of Glendale, all the way down to the Turnpike/Maumee.

Ive still yet to check out Plate 21. I think it would be pretty cool if Beverly kinda manifested its own little downtown.

Plate 21 is excellent... Beverly is a neighborhood that has areas that were developed in the teens and 20s and some areas that are new.

Default Reply to safe ares of Toledo

I lived in Sylvania thirty years but moved off Central close to Westgate 5 years ago and LOVE it. It is close to everything and my neighborhood is wonderful. Everyone is friendly, walks their dogs and is helpful. Taxes are much less than in Sylvania. The school system is Washington Local. I feel very safe but no matter where you live you must apply common sense when you see anything out of the ordinary. We just live in times where you now have to lock doors and be cautious of strangers, however all the wonderful people I have met in Toledo were strangers at one time so you must give people a chance. I believe there are much more good than bad.
