Live in One of the State’s Safest Towns
Stillwater #4 Safest Town in New York
What do Buyers want?
A quality neighborhood, convenience to a person’s job, and affordability are the top three most important characteristics to home buyers, according to the National Association of REALTORS’® latest generational trends report. Of course “quality neighborhood” will mean different things to different Buyers, but pushing personal preferences aside, most neighborhoods deemed “desirable” share a fundamental characteristic in common: low crime rates.
Crime data published by the FBI is broken down into two categories: violent crime and property crime. And when it comes to the latter (which includes burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson), New York actually outperforms most other states with a median rate 40% below the national average. Not only should this give NY residents some peace of mind, it also means there’s no shortage of safe, quality neighborhoods for Buyers to choose from. In fact, one of safest towns in the state is right here in Saratoga County. Coming in at #4 – with about 9,500 residents, a lot of history and very little crime – is the scenic town of Stillwater.[View the top 50 safest towns in NY state]
