Safest Neighborhoods to Live in Missouri

Stafford Aslam March 15, 2018 0

Safest Neighborhoods

We all want to feel safe in our homes and communities. Safety is often a factor in homebuyers’ home searches as well as purchases. You can change a lot about a property, but not where it’s located. So, buyers need to like the neighborhood as well as the house.

Whether you’re a homeowner, homebuyer, or real estate agent, it’s important to stay up to date on the safety and crime of your region.

The Missouri Market

Currently, the median home value in Missouri is $144,200, which has increased 3.5% over the past year. The state population in the 2010 census was nearly 6 million, with Kansas City and St. Louis the most populated cities. At the end of 2017, the unemployment rate in Missouri was 3.5%.

Safer towns tend to have smaller populations, quality housing, and better schools and are good for families. But as you can see below, home value/price and income can vary widely.

Safe Neighborhoods

A number of factors contribute to the safety of a neighborhood. Knowing your neighbors and getting involved in the community help make neighborhoods safe, which is easier in a smaller town. This is perhaps one reason many of the “safest neighborhoods” have smaller populations.

Keeping areas clean and maintaining yards and houses can deter crime as can good street lighting and good relationships between residents and the local police department.
