I love this area, and I dig that property. There are a few things about that spot:

* Alta Vista neighborhood is >HOT< right now
* Beautiful new retail just a few blocks straight south from there
* Walking distance to some really beautiful parks
* 1 mile from beautiful Olde Town Arvada

* Right across from train tracks (not light rail)
* A few older apartment buildings nearby that can be a bit sketchy

I love the area, though! I just closed on a place nearby.

When looking at the report it seem that the crimes are blocks away from the property in question sometimes in a whole other zip code,so when looking for your next apartment I suggest that you ride by day and night to get a feel for the neighborhood , the people and activity on the street where you want to live.For the most part ALL people want to live in a clean and safe environment,You can find out exactly where these crimes are taking place so that when you do move you can feel secure in your decision. ... more

Realtors cannot advise on neighborhood safety, quality of schools, crime, etc. because these issues violates Fair Housing laws. You will need to do your own research - explore the neighborhood at different times of the day and on different days; visit the local police department; go to different grocery stores, etc. ... more

Hi" My name is Joe Jimenez,. I am a Real Estate-Investor in San Jose Ca. ...Whom seeks properties where ever I can find a nice "Rehab" property in an area of demand.

Below is the link to Crime-Mapping which explains why there information on crime is the most current. Likely because there information comes directly from your state/city police crime records division.....

Below is the direct link to Crime Mapping ,com: It's simple,..Just put in your address for real close view or zip code, then select your state and your local city police department. Once there" change the one week view to past 6 months which is max for history viewing... " BE READY TO SAY WOW""

As an investor I need to always know where to find the most current accurate information. I hope this helps all.. and keeps you aware of what going on in your neighborhood.

On a side note: Anyone with knowledge of a great property (for Sale) and in need of major improvements, Please email me at : ( no caps required in email)

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Probably not true. Real estate websites use available public information to compile statistics with. They don't contact individual police departments to ask about crime statistics. This is why buyers like you should NEVER believe any data on real estate websites especially schools, crime & neighborhood information. Buyers need to verify everything themselves by visiting public schools in person, police stations in person, talk to parents waiting to pick up their kids after school or drop off in the morning, ring the doorbells of neighbors, talk to residents in grocery stores, visit the city / town hall, etc. ... more
