How accurate is the crime map on Realtor.com?

2 Replies

When looking at houses I click on the crime map to check the area. How accurate is this? Thanks!

Rene, I prefer LexisNexis Community Crime Map which is used by most municipalities.  It allows you to put in a specific address, choose a time period, indicate all crimes or just select ones, and even has sexual predator info.  It will provide you with a targeted map showing the specific crime in an area.  Realtor.com's "crime heat map" - just doesn't size up.

Hope this helps.
