When it comes to finding a place to live, homebuyers can usually
expect to pay up for safety.

Niche, a company that
researches and collects reviews on cities, recently
revealed the safest
cities in the country in a 2017 ranking
. To compile the list,
Niche analyzed public crime data — including larceny,
vehicular theft, and homicide rates — from sources like the US
Census and the FBI, and considered over 100 million reviews from
users, who rated how safe they feel in their cities.

The ranking suggests that California, with seven of the top 15
cities, is one of the safest states in the nation. It’s also home
to several of the
priciest housing markets
in the country. Two California
cities at the top of the ranking, Irvine and Thousand Oaks, have
median listing prices at least twice the national figure of
$259,000
.

Check out the chart below to see how much it costs to put
down roots in the 15 safest cities in America.
