Hello New Home Buyer,
We're not allowed to answer that question, so you won't and shouldn't get anything here on a public forum. My best answer and the most favorite (as voted by my past clients) is "Go to the grocery store in the neighborhood you think you like, that's where your neighbors are!" One of my clients who loved that piece of advice told me "I knew this was my neighborhood when no one asked me for money in the parking lot and they had flank steak in the meat selections"... Lol
All funnies aside, it's true and you'll learn a lot.
Good Luck and I hope you get what you're looking for!

It is illegal for an agent to "steer" you to one zip code over another. However, if you have an address you are interested in, you can plug in the address to these websites and they will show you all the recent crimes in the area.

Please see the following links to check crimes that have occurred recently: http://lvrealestatehelp.weebly.com/1/post/2013/11/attn-buyer…

You can start your free buying search here: http://lvrealestatehelp.weebly.com/buying-real-estate.html

If there is anything else I can help you please let me know.

What is your definition of safe neighborhood? Do you mean gate guarded with a private security guard.

Hi Julie,

As agents we are not allowed to "profile" different areas of town. All we can do is provide you with the Las Vegas crime statistics web site so you can draw your own conclusions.


It's pretty cool once you get used to how it works. To start, simply enter a property address at the top to search. When that specific property's area map opens, you can adjust the criteria by using the tabs above the map for crime types, dates, etc. The date will only go back for the past six months, but if you use the same criteria consistently it will give you a great idea of how much relative crime there is within a certain radius of a given address.

I like to search by zip codes myself. You can plug in the address as "89102, Las Vegas, NV" and pull up everything within a mile radius.

If you are truly concerned about crime, you may want to locate lower crime zip codes first and then look for homes within those zip codes rather than looking for a home first. You can go to this site and search for homes by zip code:


If you have any other questions, just shoot us an email at sold@greatlasvegashomes.com. We have been agents here more than 30 years, so we should have the answers. :)

Crime happens all over the USA. Some neighborhoods have far more crime than other neighborhoods. Vist the crime statistics site for both the Las Vegas Police and the Henderson Police. Google for the websites.

"Safe and clean" are subjective. I think your best bet would be to consult the Clark County Police crime mapping. This should help you find what your looking for.

Hi Julie, although I cannot recommend avoiding any zip codes I can share with you a copy of my MLS area map which is actually a better way to search for a home instead of multiple zip codes. You will have to be the judge of what areas you like and which ones you don't. That said, I can send you listings that meet your criteria and send them based on area #'s and it will help you to become familiar with what to expect where and help you decide where you want to focus on.

Feel free to give me a call at 702-370-1072 anytime between 8am and 9pm. or you can email me at lauri365@aol.com

Real estate professionals do not label a "safe clean" neighborhood.

Hi Juliebuyahome agents/Brokers are not allows to have opinions on if a neighborhood is "safe or clean" when listing a property (or talking about it for that matter), that would be considered steering or red-lining depending on the situation. Its a slippery slope because we all interject our opinion at some point. You could look at sites with local stats (however not always accurate and sometimes scary) or the best is to go explore the neighborhood you are thinking and grab opinions from friends!
