Crime Stats

filed under: Real Estate posted on August 25th, 2015

Prospective buyers often have questions about crime stats, demographics and schools as they zero in on where to buy.  In most cases calling the local police precincts is the best way to obtain accurate information.  Another source from Cincinnati.com is a site called the DataCenter and it appears to have information about just about everything in greater Cincinnati.  The DataCenter, noted as a beta, accesses the County Auditor sites throughout greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.  In addition to property sale information, the site allows users to search for:

Crime stats

  • 911 Calls- Cincinnati Police Log
  • New Business Licenses
  • Dog Licenses
  • Smoking Ban Complaints
  • Crimes
  • Arrests and Citations

Like many “free” sites pop-up ads appear with annoying regularity.  Fortunately it’s fairly easy to cancel the pop-up and move on.  The search criteria is detailed- assuming you know the address of the crime.  The easiest way to find out anything is to type the address or street into search box. The value of the site comes from the “one stop shop” information it provides prospective buyers about an area.  However like any data resource -it may not be up-to-the-minute accurate and buyers and sellers need to go one step further and actually contact local law enforcement if they have any concerns or questions answered about safety.

And questions about who lives in the area- most cities and townships post data online detailing their demographics. Another great source for information is Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME).  They concentrate on the Cincinnati area but also provide resources for surrounding communities.

Finally lots of questions about schools and, once again, your best resource is to contact the actual school district to discuss your needs.  Looking for a resource and can’t find it-Call/Txt
