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.....

https://www.crimemapping.com/#video

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""

https://www.crimemapping.com/

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 : BottomLineInvestments@gmail.com ( no caps required in email)

I do pay referral fees if we close sale on your referral... GUARANTEED" in writing..

When a client asks "How is the crime in this neighbohood" I always reply with the following answer.
" I recomend going to www.crimereports.com and put in the full address and zip code"
As an agent I can not give exact an exact answer to that question because it changes constantly. However I can help the client by explaining where to get accurate information. This way I am really helping someone.

Patricia ---

I come on here to try to answer questions that people have, and see if I can help them get the right house for their family, ...or at least understand a little bit about Real Estate.

But in your case, ...I don't see that a question was asked.

The house on Whispering Willow is available for lease, and yes, it does have 4 bedrooms. Do you realize you could BUY it for less than $1,200 a month? And also get a Tax Deduction from the IRS?

Do you know that it takes just as much cash to get into a rent house as it does for the Down Payment to purchase one? (...in the first 32 days)

And if it is your credit score that you are worried about, call me and I'll show you how to raise it ---free of charge.

I'd be more than happy to help you move your family into a new house. I can also show you how to save money on your electric bills, too, ~so be sure to contact me before you get ready to hook up your utilities.

Best regards,

Rick DeVoss

~What kind of crime rate would it need to have in order for you to buy a house in the Candle Ridge area from me?

Contact me directly, and we'll discuss it. We will talk about your family's needs, your wants and wishes, and we'll come up with a plan to get you into the right kind of house in the right kind of neighborhood. Your job is to get qualified for the loan with a loan officer. It is my job to find the right house for you.

You bring the cash, and I'll bring the address.

Call me! ...and don't forget to lock your doors tonight!

Bill Jones answered:
Our home was broken into a couple of months ago so I feel pretty good about answering your question! It happened between 10AM and 1PM, a time we are normally away from the house. Our neighborhood officer said it's a common theme, as the bad guys are paying attention to your normal patterns. He gave us two suggestions:

1) Be a "nosy neighbor". Be aware of when your neighbors are away from their home and tell them when you will be away from yours. Let them know about repairmen that are expected at your home. Be aware of your surroundings and others.

2) Our officer could not stress this point enough... If you have a bad feeling about a person or a car in your neighborhood, call 911! That's what they are there for. The 911 operator will dispatch your neighborhood officer directly.

It was clear our officer took all break-ins personally. They are doing their best, but they need our help.

I hope this helps!

Feel free to contact me for more information to your question. I will answer you this much I am not at liberty to answer questions based off of race however I can instruct you to drive through the neighborhood. As far as getting an idea of the crime rates and or safety concerns feel free to contact the local police departments.

John Straub answered:
Hi Lucy
Not across school district boundaries. Within the same school district you often can send your child to a different campus. The exception being if a campus is closed to due to already being at capacity. Each district sets there own policies in this regard and they change year to year. A couple of things off the top to prepare for, some disricts charge a fee to swap campuses so be aware, your agent should be able to get this information for you. Second you will need to arrange transportation to and from the school campus each day at your expense if you are not in the feeder pattern. I see that you are in the Northeast I hope the weather is cooler. If you have any other questions I am happy to help, please contact me directly, there is no obligation. Best of luck on your home search!
