Is This Neighborhood Safe?

Shopping for a new home in a new area can be a bit daunting.  Moves are stressful enough but then deciding on a new neighborhood just adds to the uncertainty.

As a real estate agent I find home buyers want to rightfully know about the prospective neighborhood.

"Is this neighborhood safe?"

When I receive that question, and I always do, when it is an out of state relocation to Brevard County, I always give the same advice.

Do your research. 

Some of the things I tell folks is to call the local police and ask about the area.  Likewise, walk the neighborhood and talk to folks.  If they are afraid to walk the neighborhood then the answer may be self evident!
