I wold suggest you work with a realtor, they cannot tell you where crime is, because of fair housing laws. They can however help you with your home search and give you a list of resources, like schools etc.
If you don't have an agent I know an amazing one that works there, so feel free to contact me or any one of us on these boards for a referral. Best of luck to you. If you start looking in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, feel free to contact me to pick my brain about this wonderful area.
