Crime Rates By Zip Code When Searching For Homes

One of the age-old questions many buyers have when relocating to a new area -- what is the crime like?  As a real estate professional, I cannot steer potential buyers into one area or keep them from another by law.  Sure, you can research police statistics on areas, but what if you are looking around an entire metro area?  Where do you even begin?  

While not a perfect tool, this website can give buyers some peace of mind.  Search census demographic information.  Want to know the monthly climate for an area?  What about the general motor vehicle theft, burglary, or murder rate risk?  While it won't give you a sense of a particular neighborhood, it does search by zip code and so mapping out an entire area becomes quite easy.  Want to compare two zip codes?  You can do that easily too.  It is also easy to compare your chosen zip code against the state overall and USA averages.  
Need to find zip code maps?  Just do a google search.  For example: Colorado Springs zip code map or Denver zip code map.  
An educated buyer is a confident buyer and I encourage all of my buyers to do their diligent research.  When you have an arsenal of tools to make an educated home buying decision, it takes much of the fear out of what can be a very exciting, but also daunting process.
