Franklin MIFranklin Michigan is just a small community nestled in Oakland County.  It is only about about 2.66 square miles in size.  It is what I would call an affluent city.  Home prices per square foot are higher than Lathrup Village, Southfield, or Ferndale.  You will find homes on large lots.   You will love the community because of the mature trees.  It almost makes you feel like you are up north.  Some are estate style homes but some a regular ranch homes.  I would call some of them sprawling ranches as they are bigger than the normal 1200 square foot ranches you find in many of Oakland County cities.

How safe is Franklin MI?

Franklin Michigan is a very safe community.  I would say that it is only affected by random crime.  What I mean by that is there is no active criminal element roaming or controlling the city.  You are going to have random crime such as vandalism by younger kids, and crimes of opportunity when you leave your car unlocked.  You are not going to have gangs doing home invasions, getting car jacked going down any of the streets in the city.  It is just not a rampant crime city.  Sometimes the crimes occur because of family or friend disputes. 

You do not have the mafia shaking down local businesses, or cartels selling dope on the street.  You do not have street gangs running the streets.  No burnt out drug dens, or rapes happening all the time.  No drive by shooting or any of that.  It is a very safe community to live in.  I would recommend Franklin MI to any Michigan relocation client.  It is a great place to call home.
