When working with buyers relocating to the Spring Texas area, I am typically asked “What’s the crime like in Spring Texas?” That’s a loaded question because the National Association of Realtors code of ethics prohibits Realtors which includes me from directly answering the question.
The best source I have found for information on crime is www.crimereports.com. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is the source of information and the site is extremely user friendly. Type in an address and the crime reports are quickly generated. The date range is defaulted to the last 14 days but you can change it to show you the last 30 days or you can select a custom date range.
You can also specify the type of crime report / incident you would like to view such as breaking & entering, robbery, theft of vehicle, family offense, or missing person. In addition, you have the ability to overlay the location of registered sex offenders.
And yes, there is an APP for it too. You can download CrimeReports for the iPhone from the iTunes App Store.
When you are ready to go view homes for sale in Spring Texas, give us a call at 281.804.8626 or 281.300.3141.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
