In the long run, the best defense against any crime is a good informed offense! Most Police Departments have a Neighborhood Crime Watch program. I would also highly advise you subscribe to your area Nixle feed/service here: https://nixle.com/city/ca/lincoln/
Truth be told, the best way to stay safe is to introduce yourself to your neighbors, exchange numbers, and agree to keep a look out for any suspicious activity around each otherâ€™s homes. Even better; start a neighborhood crime watch group, you will appreciate the tangible and intangible benefits of doing so.
RealtorsÂ® looking to minimize Federal legal exposure via "anti-steering" law do not comment on "crime & safety"; however, we can direct you to information sources to allow you to come to a personal opinion about an area.
In this regard, my favorite site is http://www.crimereports.com
Note: Once you enter a property address go to the "Advanced Search" tab to select what type of information is important to you. Next, choose the duration of time you want to look at under "Date Range" (now limited to a 6-month view). You can also try these alternate crime reporting sites: http://tinyurl.com/a34pmyc
Steve, if you read this please give me a call at 760 815-6977 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I just blurted this out because I didn't want to forget to reach out to you. I have a possible client who is looking for construction financing and then a take out replaced with a long term mortgage. Hope you handle these types of transactions. I'll email you with more info. Thanks.
I've been in my home for 33 years and never even locked my doors until recently. Now I'm having a state of the art security system installed because we've had a burglary spree during this past year. You just have to take the proper safety precautions no matter where you live. No real estate professional can help you pick a safe area.
