Local Crime Statistics Matter to Both Buyers and Sellers

Why do people love living in Central Texas? The reasons are too many to list! But one of the most compelling reasons is peace of mind knowing that you’re living in one of the safest areas in all of Texas. In a recent survey published by SafeWise and based on FBI crime report statistics, several local cities including Round Rock finished in the top 100 safest Texas cities with populations over 10,000. 

Favorable crime statistics can be a compelling differentiator when trying to sell your home. With the growing influx of Americans moving to the greater Austin area for the thriving job economy, many home buyers will consider living a little farther from downtown Austin in order to find a nearby city or suburb with better  crime statistics. We constantly have a pool of interested buyers searching for houses throughout Round Rock and the surrounding areas. Let the RJF Team help you prepare your house for a quick sale and net you the most money. Like the temperature, the real estate market is heating up this summer! Contact us for a no-pressure consultation for how much you could expect from your home sale at (512) 537-4977.

Do you know someone thinking of relocating to one of these safe cities? The RJF Team would love to connect them with one of our talented buying specialists who can assist them with finding their perfect home, securing financing through one of our preferred lenders, and applying strategies to win in a multiple offer situation. Contact us at (512) 537-4977 or RSVP to attend our free July 6 Home Buying Seminar: “How to Buy the Home of Your Dream in a Seller’s Market”. More details for the seminar can be found on page 16 of the Red Bud Reader.

Cities failing to submit complete crime report to FBI were excluded.
