If you send me info regarding the type of home you are looking for I would be happy to assist you with find a home to purchase. The easiest way to get this info to me is to fill out our "Buyer's Form on our website here: http://lvrealestatehelp.weebly.com/buying-real-estate.html


If you have specific address you are interested in you can read below to check recent crimes and school ratings in that area.

Please see the following links to check crimes that have occurred recently around addresses that you plug in.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police website covering Clark County and the City of Las Vegas, has a page where you can search crime statistics. We've included the link below.
http://69.69.103.31/crimeviewcommunity/

For areas covered by N. Las Vegas police:
http://www.cityofnorthlasvegas.com/departments/police/CrimeS…

For the City of Henderson:
http://www.cityofhenderson.com/police/crime_search.php

This is the link to the Clark County School District. Again, you can enter in the address you are interested in and it will pull up the schools zoned for that specific house. There are reports and ratings on each school, this will give you a better idea of how well that each school is performing. Once you enter the address, you can click on the school name, then click on the school website and on their front page look for the "Accountability Report". This will give you very detailed information on each school and how they are performing.

Here are some great sites you can use to look at the neighborhood crime statistics. My husband and I used this when we moved to Vegas to make sure we were in a good neighborhood!

http://www.crimemapping.com/map/nv/lasvegas

The above link is directly from the Las Vegas Police Dept. and you can put in the address of a property you are interested in to see what crime activity has occurred in the area.

http://www.familywatchdog.us/

The above link is specifically for any registered sex offenders that are in the neighborhood you are looking at homes in.

I hope this helps...and Happy House Hunting!

Hello Alkanizar
Safe to one person may not be safe to another therefore I find it advisable to contact the local authorities. http://www.lvmpd.com is a link to the Las Vegas Metro Police website, you can research the area and determine for yourself what seem 'safe'.
May I also recommend the website http://www.greatschools.org/ which will assist you in determining what zone of the Clark County School District (ccsd.net) your children will be in once you narrow your search.

If you have further questions, you can contact me directly:

Hi Ron, your question is actually a discriminatory question for agents to answer. However, you could easily find out that information on any city or county official website statistics, including the police website.
Good luck in your search.

Hello Alkanizar,

Ron Thomas is correct in saying that as a Realtor we are not able to answer that question. What I can say is that my past clients that purchased that worked up at Nellis purchased in NW Las Vegas and Aliante because of the easy commute and amenities they had to offer. Please let me know if you need help.

Realtors cannot anwer your question:
If we comment on Crime; positively or negatively, we can be accused of "steering" and could lose our license.
Please contact the local police for your answers.
