As the saying goes, the most important aspect of real estate is: Location, Location, Location! When looking to put down roots, families are going to pay attention to several details within that location. Factors such as public schools, the cost of living, and safety. 

Recently, SafeWise released their list of the safest cities in North Carolina. SafeWise is an independent review site specializing in home security and safety products. Basically, they know what they’re talking about! 

To determine these top 20 NC safe cities, SafeWise took several different statistics into account. They looked at FBI crime report statistics and population data. Then, in order to properly compare cities of varying population, they found a composite average of the potential of violent or property crime per every 1,000 residents. 

In this way they made their rankings. Several Charlotte area suburbs made the top 20!
