"Worst crime area in Rocky"

We were seriously considering buying a first home for retirement in Beserker due to the high rating of a couple of people on this site; one of whom didn’t even bother explaining why they gave it 5 stars.
Luckily we did a quick police check on the crime, ie, serious crime in Beserker, and found it is the worst area in Rocky.
Anyone else here disagree?

"Walking distance to everything!"

If you are like my family and I and enjoy leaving the car at home then Berserker is the area for you.
We can literally walk 10 minutes and be shopping at major centres, at the gym, have the kids at school (day care, primary and secondary), doctors surgery, pool, hotel, sporting clubs, children's activities and kilometres of walking/cycle tracks. In fact whatever your interests you will most likely find it within walking distance of where I reside. Everything else can be accessed via the regular bus service that passes my front door.
Where I live in Berserker, it can get a little noisy during work hours but like most people both my wife and I are working and not at home for it to affect us. The children are at an excellent local primary school that they both enjoy attending and where they have made many friends from around the area.
All of my neighbours are middle age to retired and very friendly. They take pride in their residences and the area is green and leafy with many mature trees and bird life abounds. The blocks sizes are generous so the kids have plenty of room to burn off that excess energy after school or on the weekends and the mature gardens means they can be in the shade all day while outside.
The housing is affordable, the streets are wide and well lit and the parking is ample.
If you are an active, adventurous, fun loving family like us then Berserker is an ideal place to hang you hat and enjoy watching your family grow.
