Top 10 safest neighborhoods around Redding


Safe Neighborhood Checklist

_____Property Upkeep? Even if the neighborhood  is  full of modest, older homes, the yards and  exteriors should indicate pride of ownership.

_____Are the properties around it similar?Are residential homes mixed with commercial buildings or mobile homes?  Do any of the homes have poorly built additions?

_____Has property been red flagged for illegal growing? Tends to make a property at risk for unwanted visitors in the future. This has become a problem for safety in Redding and surrounding areas.

_____Foot traffic of the homeless has become a problem in Shasta County.  Can people walk to the house from downtown?

_____Is neighborhood mostly owner occupied or rentals? if a property is not owner-occupied  it has a higher risk of not being well cared for.  Look for signs such as one house having a lot of cars parked outside can sometimes mean it is a rental.

_____Visit at all hours.  Are there dogs that bark all day long? Do neighbors host raucous parties on weekends? If you can’t get to the area during the week, have a trusted friend do some surveillance for you.

_____Are their a lot of for sale signs and vacant buildings?  Absent neighbors and empty buildings can also bring down property values.   Stores that have gone out of business  do not reflect a growing community. Vacant buildings encourage a variety of  activities that you do not want in your neighborhood.

_____Talk to a neighbor or someone walking in the neighborhood. Ask them what kind of people  live there, the street traffic or any other burning questions you may have. If you can’t grab a neighbor, talk to the mail carrier.  A local mail carrier will be able to give you his or her sense of the neighborhood.

_____Google the street address and street name.Do online research.

_____Check out parks in the area. The appearance of a park can tell you a lot about a neighborhood. Parks are among the most telling signs of the condition of a neighborhood.

_____Neighborhood pets? Bad neighbors might also ignore their pets.  Is there a lot of barking? Are they tied up outside, or in a small fenced area? Do they look like they're taken care of, or are they being neglected?

_____Google street view the address to get a feel for neighborhood before doing a driveby to check it out.

_____Call Erin (515-6116) . Realtors have access to lots of neighborhood info. Visit my website www.reddinghousehunters.com for more tips.

_____Meghans law research?
