RealtorsÂ® looking to minimize legal exposure to the Federal "anti-steering" Law do not comment on "crime & safety"; however, we can direct you to information sources. In this regard, my favorite site is http://www.crimereports.com
Note: Once you enter a property address go to the "Incident Layers" tab to select what type of information is important to you. Next, choose the duration of time you want to look at under "Date Range" (now limited to a 6-month view).

Apart from the "Anti-Steering" issue the following are other reasons RealtorsÂ® typically do not comment on "crime & safety":
1) One does not know the threshold of a Client's comfort level. A property crime may or may not have the same weight as a more serious event -- in a Client's mind.
2) As Citizens, we typically hear very little of what actually goes on in a City every day. I went through the Citizensâ€™ Police Academy in my local area a few years back and I can absolutely tell you the typical city resident only hears about 2% of what actually happens on a daily basis.
3) A â€œniceâ€ area can convert to a â€œbadâ€ area in the blink of eye subject to sensitivity of the individual processing the information concerning a particular event.
4) I also recommend you take a friend and checkout the Neighborhood in the morning, afternoon and evening!
That being said I am moving from Brentwood to an unincorporated area out here as I want more space.
Oakley has more affordable housing and is very nice.
Discovery Bay has many wonderful homes and if you want to live on the water with a Deep Water Dock this would be for you. Disco Bay also has a very affordable and nice gated community with wonderful homes.
