When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Best way to find out about safety of a neighborhood is just check with local police station, they are the best one to give all the details about crime statistics. In my personal opinion, every neighborhood is safe and not safe, you have to protect yourself and be street smart. You can be living in the middle of city or far out in suburbia, you have to protect yourself. So, go and ask questions to neighbors, sit out in car at different times of day and check with local police station, you can even check on line stats as well.

Thanks Pam.

Real estate agents can only relay crime stats and cannot by law relate any personal preferences. It can be frustrating for a buyer to just hear check with the local ploice reports and drive the neighborhood. That is the best advice really, drive at different times of day and night and weekends to get afeel for the neighborhood. If you need a loan for that home I can help. I specialize in the Maryland Mortgage Program for first time home buyers. Wish you the best.

Hello Pam,
I live in the Cedmont area, and attend Epiphany Lutheran Church which is located in the heart of Cedmont. I really can't answer any questions about crime, I always refer customers to check the computer and go to the local police reports website.
If you have any other questions or real estate needs, please don't hesitate too call me, 443-271-0703.
Gods Peace,
Jan
