    Post Hold on to Your Purse or Wallet!

    Using exclusive neighborhood crime data developed by Dr. Andrew Schiller at Neighborhood Search for Home Buyers and Real Estate Investment - NeighborhoodScout and based on FBI data, these are the neighborhoods in America that have the highest rates of property crime.

    These are not necessarily the neighborhoods where you are likely to be harmed physically, although some of them do also have high violent crime rates.
    This is where houses are broken into, cars are stolen, and thefts occur.
    But of more than 60,000 neighborhoods in the U.S., these (below) are the 15 where your chances of becoming a property crime victim are highest.

    No. 1: Isla Vista, Calif.


    No. 2: Logan, W.Va.


    No. 3: Schofield Barracks, Hawaii


    No. 4: Huntsville, Ala.

    No. 6: Austin, Texas


    No. 7: St. Louis, Mo.

    Logan, WV is #2 and Danville #13? Who would have thought that? I'm from WV and didn't know this.

    #3 Schofield Barracks, #4 Huntsville, AL, and #7 St Louis, MO. That does not track with my personal knowledge at all. Something is wrong with Dr. Andrew Schiller's algorithm. Or maybe I should have said AlGoreRithm.
