Most local banks are within a 15 minute drive of any area in the zip ode. Must towns have community banks. If not, 15 or so minutes. If you would like more detailed information or would like me to search something for you, call me 704-804-4086 or contact me thru Trulia.
Have a nice day.

Please visit and select the "Public Safety" link at the bottom right of the page. Select "Community Crime Statistics" and then "Quick Search". The "Quick Search" link allows you to enter an address for statistics. This site also allows you to perform a crime mapping search which allows you to search a broader area.

All information you find is updated from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department's Monthly Report.

Best of luck.

Hi, My mother just moved from Queens, NY and was looking for an affordable kind of new apt. complex for seniors and she got approved and moved right in...the tenants are very friendly and welcoming...the area immediately west of the location is not the best but after the 2 mile stretch it cleans up... You can not beat the proximity to the charlotte airport..8 minutes ..uptown-downtown 12 minutes, highway 85,77 and 485..a touch away... the area is quickly being restored will all the construction and plans...and Tyvola rd with all the parks,upscale apts and shopping and 24 hr. Denny's that is soon to open next month will feature so many amenities for the area especially if you drive...Oh! the bus is about 1 block away to uptown inabout 30 minutes..... ... more

When you are looking for a house in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Area the best site to look up crime rates is going to be going to the police department website. They have a crime mapping system in place that allows you to pin point an address and then to see what the crime is for that area and you can narrow it or expand it as much as you want.

The website for this is:
From there click on for your safety on the top bar and chose the item in the drop down menu you want. I recommend to clients to use the first or second one.

This should help you make a decision if the area is safe in your opinion for seniors.

Good evening, Jones.
There is some good info on the Trulia site about this.If you are in the Charlotte area and call 311 police non-emergency, with a specific address, the officer who patrols the area can give you a straight answer. Talking to neighbors is also a great way to learn about the neighborhood. Here is a list of all properties currently listed for sale in this zip code. Below is a link to a blog How to Choose a Neighborhood - Signs of Good and Bad Neighborhoods, which also might help. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

Stephen Katz answered:
The best way to determine the crime rate in a certain neighborhood to get in contact with the local police community groups. Check their records for the rate, frequencies and types of crimes that are occurring in a particular neighborhood, especially the local public housing units then compare them to the crime rates in other communities and see if there is a big difference. Public housing got its bad rap during the 70's due to the race riots that are frequently occurring there. In recent times though, most of the negative perception is due to the fact that a huge number of people who live in public housing units are minorities and low income families. ... more
