“It’s rare to find an individual or couple under the age of 35 who hasn’t used their smartphone or tablet to scope out a neighborhood where they’re considering a home,” says Chicago-area real estate agent Lance Murray. “Mobile devices and the information they provide easy access to can influence purchasing decisions.”
According to Murray, young prospective home buyers utilize mobile resources to research more than just house prices. They’re looking at crime statistics, sexual offender registries, and more.
Fortunately, in the digital age, it’s getting easier to find the safe places to live and dwell.
Every state has its own statistics for violent crime. But did you know that the three most dangerous states in the U.S. are Alaska, Nevada, and Tennessee?
According to a new infographic from Adams Davis, a respected Utah law firm of personal injury lawyers, Alaska — which in many ways retains its “wild west” reputation, averages 603.2 violent crimes per 100,000 residents.
In Tennessee, there are 479.6 cases of aggravated assault per 100,000 citizens in the state.
And in Nevada, law enforcement deals with an average 2809.4 incidents of property crime per 100,000 residents.
