“Safety” Is Relative When Evaluating Where to Live

It’s all relative.

One of the top criteria my clients (and most buyers/people) is safety/crime/neighborhood quality.

And I never assume.

I had a client years ago who had a (mostly hyperbolic) opinion on the safety of where they wanted to live, “so long as we’re not stepping over needles, we’re good.”

“Neighborhood quality” is relative.

You can evaluate neighborhood quality/safety online, but the best way – truly the best way to evaluate – is to ask the neighbors.

The City of Charlottesville has a darn good resource for looking at crime stats.

The County of Albemarle is pretty good, too.
