how often it is?
I also like www.CrimeReports.com and be sure to then type in your own address, so you can compare the crime in any new neighborhood with a neighborhood you already know.
Good luck!

Erica Glessing answered:
In CA, is it required for the "For Sale" sign to stand in the middle of our front yard with the "pending" sign on it for the entire 60 day escrow?
You can ask the agent to remove it. It is OK. It is already sold! You are the client, it is you that should be happy.
