We all know that you can't actually answer that question. Even if you believe it to be absolutely safe, saying so would be taking a terrible risk.
What you CAN do is what Katie did here - furnish your buyers with links to the appropriate sites so they can check out the crime statistics, and check to see if there's a registered sex offender in the neighborhood they're considering.
After I let my license go a past client called one day to tell me she had "almost" purchased a house next door to a child molester. Her closing had been delayed when the seller landed in the hospital, or it would have been a done deal.
While they were waiting for the seller to be well enough to close, someone mentioned the sex offender website to her, so she checked it out.
Since she had a cute 8 year old daughter, she was more than thankful to be able to back out of that purchase!
“Is this a safe neighborhood?” A question I hear repeatedly from buyers. Buyers wonder if there have been any breakins near by, stolen car reports or violent crime etc. Some are concerned about sex offenders in the area as well. These are questions your realtor may not be able to answer but the answers are definitely available.
