When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

.First and foremost, use an electronic lockbox on the home - I am always surprised to see how many combo boxes are still in use! They are certainly cheaper for the broker/agent, but provide little security and NO tracking. This is important every day of the listing period, but certainly even more so when the homeowner is away for an extended period.

Next, use common sense - alert the local police and your neighbors that you will be away so they can keep their eye out for you. Use timers with lights, music etc so that your home doesn't look or sound uninhabited. Agree to that a house-sitter makes sense.

And finally, watch what you post on sites like facebook - no need to announce to the world that you'll be away.

I guess, in short, don't invite trouble....

Closer to the downtown area is where you'll notice that most of the crime comes from. The areas closer to Indian Hill Rd, and Mariemont is considered "Madison Place." This area is quiet and very walkable etc. I have lived there for 3 years. I have left things outside and keep my garage unlocked most days, and haven't had anything come up missing. ... more

Are you prejudice? Why do you care about how many Blacks live here? I am one of them. Our neighbors accept us on our block. All Blacks are not the same.
