Rick Musto answered:
Best thing to do is check the local public safety website, for example in Cumming it is either the Forsyth County Sheriff or the City of Cumming Police, depending on where the property is. I will say that in general Cumming is a safe city, truly a suburb community of Atlanta.

I would be happy to show you properties and give you more information about the community. Give me a call when you get a minute!

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Tommie, thanks for the question regretfully we as agents could not tell you, x village is safe or y town is full of criminals. We can be the source of the source. Check out: spotcrime.com, Savannah-Chatham Metro PD has a crime map on there website. Also I always tell my clients that they need to drive the neighborhood they are intending to live in at least morning noon and night just to make sure it is where you want to be. Thanks again Tommie and good luck.

If you need any assistance with your historic home hunt please call me at 812-665-2941.
