I haven't had much experience in the SW Portland area, but I do feel it is a safe neighborhood in regards to crime. There could be some improvement on extending/adding sidewalks for safety.
I enjoy the rain, but it does make it important to keep up maintenance on your vehicles brakes, tires and wipers. And the spring and summer months are absolutely gorgeous.
