Have you find out about the neighborhood? how do you like it?
I live in Downey since 1994, and I can tell everything here had changed a lot. In general Downey is divided in 4 areas;
D1, Northeast Downey - Most expensive homes in Downey
D2, Northwest Downey
D3, Southeast Downey
D4, Southwest Downey

Neighborhood is pretty nice and quiet.. The worst area of Downey is around Rosecrans and Lakewood.. Westside by Rives and Old River School and nice.

Downey is a very desirable city to live in. Most people who live in surrounding cities view Downey as a "Step Up" and usually will try to get in, if the opportunity presents itself. Here is a link that has crime statistics for Downey, Ca.

Best of Luck,

Downey is a great city, with great history. Home to the Carpenters, Apollo Space program, and the oldest surviving Mc Donalds. Close to malls, fwys, and centrally located to all amusement parks. Plenty of nice areas in Downey that are nice and quiet. Drive through the city and you can see for yourself. Great city.

Certainly Downey has changed a lot. New shopping centers have open and lots of new stores on Firestone have open as well, but the desire to live in Downey remains, demand for housing has been driving prices back up.

If unfamiliar with the area, visit the neighborhood several times to get a sense of belonging; possibly chat with locals, visit shops, simply drive around and look at anything of importance to you, etc., then determine if your comfort level can be reached; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods...
