There's another "surge" out there you should probably be concerned about, except this one might save your wallet and your a$$ if you don't go chasing it. In our line of work, you obviously need to know your home turf like the back of your hand, including where the dangerous neighborhoods are. I've been using this nifty tool, Trulia Maps, for several years now, and not just for their interactive crime heat maps. It also has useful maps regarding commute times, restaurants, nightlife, real estate/rental prices, traffic volumes, flood zones, etc. Check it out at https://www.trulia.com/local/or as part of the Trulia Real Estate app on iOS or Android.
