Find Out If There Are Sexual Predators Nearby Before You Buy A Home or Property!

When looking for a new home or property, buyers ask many questions. Typical questions might be about the history of the property, property tax amounts, the school system, proximity to medical facilities, shopping malls, etc. Of course these details are important but fall short of getting all the information necessary to make an informed purchase.

We all like to think that we live in a perfect world and that our new neighbors will be just great in the location we've selected for our new home! It might even look like paradise, making it all the more tempting to view it as such! You might have heard wonderful things from friends and family about the new location you've selected. Chances are these wonderful things are true and you'll be very happy. Nevertheless, you might want to ask just one more question when considering buying a home or property in any location..."Are there sexual predators nearby?"

The answer is closer than you think! Information about sexual predators is public and easily obtained. Before you buy a home or property contact State or Local law enforcement for a list of area sexual predators and remember to get updates often even after you move. Many cities and towns have this information online, complete with photos and addresses of offenders. If you don't have online access or don't know how to contact law enforcement,ask your real estate professional to assist you!
