Crime statistics and your home purchase

Buying a home is one of the largest financial investments one can make. Don't just take the neighbors word for it or leave it to chance. Look at data and statistics to get a full picture of your new street, neighborhood, and city. Its interesting how crime seems to happen a lot in one place but then never only a few streets away. To help give buyers a better idea on how to analyze this data, Trulia.com has come out with a heat map which shows where and when a certain crime happened. This can also be sorted by violent and non-violent crime. You may think that this is a dark topic to consider when looking for a home, but its your money and your family. Do the research now so you don't make a mistake later. Check out this link and take notes. Also check out the market trends, local school info, and community information provided. It isn't an answer all questions site, but it will help on your search for that perfect home. Good luck out there and have fun!!
