Avoid Callen St./Brown Street and anything off of "Hamburger Hill"
Avoid Markham st./orchard
Del Rio (and any street starting with 'Del')
Alamo drive near the fire station and corner Arco/7-11 (not safe)
You DOOO want.....
Browns Valley Area
Vine Street (if you want to buy, good luck renting those gems)
and older homes on Alamo going the OPPOSITE way past Peabody
Peabody homes across from the prison aren't so bad either....and new housing just went up too...unless you have an aversion to the prison-break-possibility.
We are unable to comment on the "bad" or "good" or any area as it is unethical for us to do so. You can check out this site for crime rates in any area.
Please let me know if you would like a list of available homes in areas you may be interested in. :)
Unfortunately crime happens in every community.
