South Forsyth safety

Asked by CSG524, Cumming, GA Wed Apr 10, 2013

We have been looking to move the south Forsyth Vickery Creek area for a while. I'm a bit concerned because when I compare the crime rates and local sex offenders to where we currently live in New Jersey the rates are much greater. It seems the area is safe however I just need reassurance. I understand things can happen anywhere. Thanks!

Wrong source!
Realtors are not allowed to comment on Crime, Race, Religion, eyc.
Whether we comment negatively or positively, we can be accused of "steering" which could mean our license.
You should contact your local police for information.

Here is the link for the GBI sex offenders list. Vickery Creek is 30040. There are 42 registered in 30040. I have lived here for over 13 years and love it. I haven't heard anything in regards to crime in this area except domestic issues and the occasional car break in at night in neighborhoods (which I thinks are probably kids). We moved here from Roswell because of the schools. My oldest is a junior at West Forsyth and started at Vickery in the first grade. I grew up in Dunwoody as did my wife and we consider this area the best value for Home, School, Parks and Community.

Also when you do make the move you will want to be in the Vickery school district which is considered the best by most in the area and that will put you in the West Forsyth high school as well. All around great schools! And crime rate? I can't remember the last time something bad happened.

Thanks Ron, but it's my understanding not only realtors use Trulia. I have already done my research. I would just like some local opinion.
