A Licensed Realtor© cannot legally inform a buyer about the crime statistics in a certain area. This is considered “steering” and is a violation of the “Fair Housing Act.”
There are many resources available through online websites that are helpful when deciding about any area that you are unfamiliar with. You can also visit the neighbors, or the local Police Department to ask any questions about crime in a particular neighborhood.
We have compiled a list of websites below that offer information about crime data, sex offender information, home appreciation values, school ratings and more:
