As realtors, we are not supposed to comment on the safety of any particular area.
Check out http://www.movoto.com, homefair.com, neighborhoodscout.com, spotcrime.com, crimereports.com and compare the results with where you live now. Check the area out at night as well, before making your final decision.

Best of luck,

We suggest calling 311 and ask for police non emergency then give the address and ask to talk with the officer who patrols the area. You can also drive the area at various times of the day and night. If you see people outside, especially if they are walking a dog, stop and talk to them about your concerns.

i think you are best to call the local police station for that area. They will know best if it si a high crime rate or not. Generally, they can tell you if it si isolated or a recurring problem in an area.

As Realtors we are not allowed to steer soemone to a particular neighborhood or away from it. And what we may deem as safe you may not... And vice versa.

besides the police knwo how many calls they get for a particular area and what the calls are for...

The best answer to your question will come from the local police. As an agent, we would be liable if we said one area was safe, and you got robbed or another area wasn't safe and homes wouldn't sell as a result of our statement.
The local police are the best independent source of this information and they may even have some online. Best of luck.
