Looking For A Safe Place To Move Too? Move to Boise Idaho!

Mayberry = Boise on Steroids!

And Boise Idaho real estate is reasonably priced! You only need to look at a few homes for sale in the Boise mls to see that.

Movoto's blog has ranked Boise as the Number 8 safest city in the country. With a strong middle class, even distribution of wealth, an educated public the incentive to rape, pillage and plunder is just not there. In Boise Idaho we have very little crime. In fact in 2112 there was only 1 murder. So I feel that if Movoto, a national real estate broker can give Boise an award so can I.

So without further delay I hereby award Boise Idaho as the winner of the first every

"Mayberry" USA Award!

Hey Jack as someone once said, with only 1 murderer running around our deputy sheriff just needs 1 bullet...Hopefully he will keep it in his pocket just like Barney Fife!

All kidding aside, Her are some of the details and criteria Movoto used to determine what those of use living here already knew!

They looked at each of these cities in terms of the following criteria, using official statistics from the 2012 FBI Uniform Crime Report:
•Murder
•Rape
•Robbery
•Assault
•Burglary
•Theft
•Vehicle theft

Then divided these crimes into four distinct categories:

Murders
•Violent crimes
•Property crimes
•Total crime

 
They wanted to create an equal playing field for both our larger and smaller cities, so we used the number of crimes per 100,000 people annually, rather than the total number of crimes. Then, we ranked each city from 1 to 100 in each category, with 1 being the safest. From there, They weighted the results so that murder, violent crime, and property crime each comprised 30 percent of the final score and the total number of crimes made up 10 percent. The average of these weighted scores was used to determine the safest city.
