No!!!
This is the highest crime zip code in ALL of Austin! Across the street from the Timber Ridge condo's, which are nice, is HORRIBLE housing crammed full of people that come and go, trash in the front yards. Frequent break-ins in the Timber Ridge condos. The neighbors at Timber Ridge are nice, but the neighborhood is full of drugs, illegal immigrants and is very high crime.
My mother owns a condo here, as do I, but I will NOT let my single daugher live in either one. Too bad, because it is close to everything....

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

I was born and raised here in Austin and am very familiar with the area and yes, it is safe and would be a very good place for a single female to live there.

Good luck and if you need further help, please feel free to ask me.

Definitely explore the area on your own during different times of day in addition to reviewing crime stats online. See if you feel comfortable and safe with your online research and when you're there in person.

Hi Julia,
I think it is a relatively safe area for a single female, but of course you can always take a look at this website to get area specific crime information. http://spotcrime.com/tx/austin
