“One of my clients almost bought this four-family home,” he says, showing the listing.

“But after checking the crime rate in the area, you don’t want to buy a property in that area unless you want to be surrounded by burglaries and shootings.”

As he speaks, he displays the address on the website CrimeGrade, which shows you all the crime incidents in a particular area.

“So before you buy a property, be sure to check CrimeGrade or SpotCrime to search the area.”

He explained why he preferred CrimeGrade.

“I think it’s pretty helpful because you can search the areas and it shows you the green areas, which are safer, and the red areas, which are more dangerous.”

He also recommends keeping an eye out for flood zones that could damage a property you’ve spent a lot of money on.

“You can see here that there is a button you can click to show the areas that are at higher risk of flooding,” he said, showing how the system worked on his laptop.

Robert recommends checking real estate offers carefully.

This may include information such as environmental risks and some neighborhood details.
