We're moving from southern Lorain County to west side of Akron in a few months. I'm wondering about Vinitas Ave. There's a house for sale that looks good that's immediately adjacent to the back of Buchtel HS...right behind the bleachers in fact.

The other houses on the street look good but but there are a couple of others for sale as well and all are selling for a good bit below what the asking price in, say, Walhaven or Northwest Akron would be.

I'm wondering if the proximity to the school causes problems for the street. I'd expect lots of football game noise on fall Friday nights but does the street have lots of football related traffic (folks looking for a parking space, for example)? Is there a lot of student traffic/activity on school days? Any other issues?

I don't have any illusions about that section of Akron in general. It's a good house at a very good price, so I wouldn't mind locking my door when I leave the house and at night but I am looking for quiet and reasonably safe.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

In that part of town, locking your doors won't prevent a house from getting burned to the ground.

Steer clear of CrAkron. Crime is insane & sewer rates have just gone sky-high. Try Cuyahoga Falls.

Right Howard! That new mall that the Mayor is building will replace old sexy rex's tower to no where, as the place to be seen!
