This question has nothing to do with steering.

Joe's answer is a good one and one of Ron's comments is on target - if you want to know about crime talk to the local precinct as they can give you context beyond stats.

You can also use crime mapping sites - http://www.crimemapping.com/ for example - to check out crime in relation to a specific address.

Tamara,

A crime is considered Non-violent when it does not cause physical harm against other persons. These include crimes such as drug abuse, forgery, counterfeiting or public order offense. Usually, these crimes do not involve a threat to harm or an actual attack upon a person.

Thanks, Joe! I assumed they didn't involve acts of violence against persons, but thought they may include burglary, which was a concern when looking at some neighborhoods in the Huntington Beach area. I appreciate your input!

I may think I know the answer, but I am a qualified Realtor, not a lawyer or law enforcement person. Call the local police and discuss this with them. They can help you with the answer and a qualified Realtor can help you with your real estate needs.

Thanks, Carla. I will contact the police when I nail down something. I only asked because Trulia has a graph that shows the degrees of crime in the neighborhoods where homes are listed for rent. I wasn't aware it was a touchy area for realtors. I understand not wanting to "steer" a client one way or the other. I was just looking at weeding out anything I could to get my mission accomplished faster!

About crime I would talk with the police not a real estate agent who deals who property

Good luck

Generally, non violent crimes are those that are committed against property rather than people. For example, the theft of an ipod from a backpack might be considered a non-violent crime.

You should google that question or speak to local law enforcement.

A NON-VIOLENT crime is what happens to someone else, not you!

Realtors cannopt comment on CRIME, and more than we can respond to RACE or RELIGION:
If we do, either positively or negatively, we can be accused of STEERING and lose our license.

Talk to the local Police.
