This site will give you an idea >>> http://mycity.houstontx.gov/crime/optionPage.aspx ... Click on the first "Click" button in the middle of the page ... then click on the "Live Maps" folder at the top ... expand the HPD data folder ... Choose a crime or crimes and it will map it out for the last 30 days. Be prepared. Most places appear to be pretty scary. There are other ways to search but I found this to give a good overview.

Second ward is conveniently located just north of Eastwood, which has a very stable real estate market. Eado (East Downtown) is west of Second Ward and prices there are starting to stabilize. Eado is benefiting from the new soccer stadium construction. Second Ward does have some small gentrified pockets and may cater to new construction but the overall zip code has had high crime rates. It's perhaps a good area for investment due to its proximity to downtown but as with other areas east of downtown, you need to buy with caution in any inner loop zip code.
