Demographics, Crime Stats and Other Information - Are You Curious?

It's always normal for buyers to ask questions about demographics in a community. But what about the residents? Do you know how crime in your town or county or zip code stacks up to the national average? And what about median household income? How many households have children? How does your educational system compare?

These questions, along with many others, can be answered by going to THIS WEBSITE. It's provided by the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, an affiliation that Crye-Leike has with many other national and strong regional real estate companies.

Let's take a quick look at Nashville, zip code 37214. Begin by clicking on THIS WEBSITE (in the second paragraph, above). When it takes you to the site, go to the bottom left and click on Research a community before you move. The rest is self explanatory. In our example, we see that the 37214 zip code had a growth rate of 6% since 2000. 79% have a white collar job, and 2000 households have a median income of $75K-$100K annually. Other information is there for the asking.

On this site you can even search community information by specific address, city name, county, etc. There's a world of information for anyone to discover.
