"Is this a safe neighborhood" is a question that I am frequently asked by buyers looking for a home in Charlottesville VA.
Buyers are frequently surprised that their Realtor legally can't give an opinion as to which is the safest neighborhood. However the safety of a neighborhood can often be subjective. What one person might consider safe, another might not; this partly depends on what the area was like that you are moving from.
Your real estate agent cannot tell you which community is the safest because that could be considered steering and is in violation of Fair Housing. So what can you do? There are several websites that a buyer can go to to find crime statistics so that they can determine whether they feel that an area is safe.
Below are some websites where you can go to research the crime statistics for Charlottesville Virginia and Albemarle County.
