Iâ€™ll start off by saying that Realtors should not ethically get involved in a discussion regarding the safety of a neighborhood or community as he/she may somehow be violating the rights of a protected class (anti-discrimination law).
With that disclosure, Iâ€™ll say that unfortunately there are no such things as truly safe neighborhoods. Crime can happen even in the most protected, guarded, gated, highest security neighborhoods. And most often the crimes that are committed are simply crimes of opportunity â€“ so basically, donâ€™t let your guard down, be aware of your surroundings, be vigilant and take the necessary precautions to be safe.
If you would like more information on quality of life, you can log into my website at http://www.realliving.com/JoseJames.Gomez
At the top of my website is a tab that says Local Information. Click on the tab and then enter the location that you want more data on. You will find information on quality of life, people, demographics, schools, environment, etc. You can also check the crime statistics of a particular neighborhood by visiting the local police department or http://www.homefacts.com
I hope that this was helpful. If there is anything I can help you with further, I'm just an email / phone call away.
