Often our clients ask us about crime in the Central Virginia area. It’s a logical concern for a potential buyer, but buyers will find that Realtors cannot comment directly on crime in particular areas or neighborhoods. Instead, we refer you to the proper law enforcement authorities because they have up-to-date facts and statistics to back up their impressions. They work in that area every day and we do not…. our expertise is real estate.
But we recently ran across a summary of various crime statistics from the Virginia State Police that we want to share with you. They have evaluated crimes in all parts of VA… both violent (assault, murder, robbery) and nonviolent (burglary, larceny, vandalism) and they’ve concluded that crime rates are down in Virginia in both categories. The previous link lists the number of crimes in each county of central Virginia, and we’ll be glad to connect you to additional information…. just let us know.
