Your agent should be able to give you a full statistics and neighborhood report for the area. Any member of the MLS has access to a program called Realist which can pull information from a variety of sites for you and compile it into one report. But checking online is usually the best bet. Don't forget, every area has crimes, especially random ones. If you are considering moving someplace you are not very familiar with, I recommend you chat with the neighbors and spend some time checking out the neighborhood during the evening one day, morning another and around lunchtime, then on the weekend. Stop and speak with any neighbors that are around. This will give you a gauge of the atmosphere around the home better than any reports.
