That is a loaded question. As already answered by others, real estate professionals, by law, cannot directly answer that question (assuming we even knew which specific neighborhood you were referring to). There is some logic to State and Federal laws governing this issue and that is: stigmatizing an entire area up for consideration by potential buyers. On a whole, crime is down everywhere, however, occurences still occur, no matter which part of town or country one lives in. The best advise was provided by prior agents: check with local police departments.

Questions regarding crime and safety -- I am assuming you mean Jersey City -- are best referred to the local police and sheriff departments. They will have the most up to date and accurate information. A local agent is typically legally restricted from offering an "opinion" about such matters.

Contact the local police department, and depending on your comfort level, talk to some of the neighbors in the area that you are looking to move to. You can also talk to local shop owners/workers in the area to find out what they think about the area. If they work in it every day, they'll have a pretty good idea what the area is like.

Hello Amelia how are you? Thank you for your question. You don't specify which area you are asking about, however as the other two agents have said, realtors cannot comment about the safety of any neighborhood while complying with the equal housing act. This is for the better I believe, what I may think is safe or nice may not be the same for someone else, and vice versa.
I grew up in this area and I'm very familiar with different surrounding towns. I've lived in Union City, Weehawken, West New York, Hoboken and Jersey City Heights!
When working with a realtor and deciding upon an area where you'll be laying down your roots you'll want to explore the neighborhood by visiting at different hours, shopping or eating like a local and using transportation like a local.
I always recommend that my buyers contact the local police stations to any town they aren't sure about. You can simply let them know that you're looking to move and you'd like to know about the safety of the general area. Any problematic areas that you should know about? Is it safe for a woman to walk alone at night?
They are obviously objective and will give you some insight.

Hope this helps.

Hi Amelia,

I am not sure what area you are referring to, but just as well, because as Realtors we are not to make any such judgments or statements.

What I can tell you though, is that you can call the local police department and ask how many times in a recent period they were called to the area for various reasons, or even called to the very block or address.

You can also find city crime stats info online at city-data.com

Good luck on your search for a new home and let me know if you need help.
