I understand your concern, but as agents we are prohibited from giving opinions/advice on good or bad cities/neighborhoods. It sounds like you have checked the sex offender website, which is a great resource, but please keep in mind that Surprise is a fairly large city. Since this is a concern of yours, and a valid one, I would suggest that you wait until you find some homes that you are interested in and then check the crime statistics and sex offender website for those neighborhoods. It is generally not a good idea to judge an entire city based on one criterion. Think about Phoenix...it has an extremely diverse population and is a huge city, it has some of the most expensive homes and some of the least expensive. You could find a neighborhood to fit every persons desires.
