Sorry, but I find Tony's chart and Alan's misuse of it to be totally off the mark. There are definitely some pretty rough places in this zip code, but the north west part of this zip is very close to the new medical city and represents outstanding value and is a prime location for long term rental. Stats by zip code are useless.
I guessing that you have asked about this zip code because prices are lower here. Do remember that you get what you pay for. If the prices in one area are lower than in adjoining areas, there will be a reason why.
Yes it is a good time to buy but I would suggest an area with less than the national average crime rate. PLease have a look at my profile and if you think that I am the type of guy you can work with, then please contact me
