Relocating...tremendous flexibility re locale in Palm Beach County...but recently quite intrigued by a few, beautiful older homes just south of El Cid...with several "west of Olive". Is the crime rate stable in that vicinity?...or getting worse? S. Dixie Highway never changes. It's certainly not bad...but just kinda stale.

We can all articulate the reasons why West Palm real estate values imploded the past 4-5 years...but...my question...is/was crime in that area a major contributing factor?...and will it continue to be?

Thanks for thoughts, insights and candor...

Per statistics, crime in West Palm has gotten significantly better since the peak of the real estate market.

The most significant crime in the southend tends to be property crime, which is everywhere.

I live west of El Cid (FLamingo Park) and feel completely safe. The most that I've known about was the next door neighbor had some Rx pills taken out of his car that he left unlocked.

I wouldn't live west of Dixie (South of Belvedere Road), but not because of crime, but rather because the area is lower income and not kept up as nicely. The last time there was a murder there it was an acquantence murder.... supposedly a couple of illegals got into a fight while riding bikes together or something.
