Both Pacificview and Barkley are fine neighborhoods. I agree with the assessments you’ve made of both areas. I would add that Barkley (not necessarily good or bad, just an observation) does offer a bit more diversification in terms of neighborhood make up mainly due to multiple plats that were developed at different times. The City desired a “mix” when the area was platted resulting in varying single family and condo areas ranging from modestly designed and valued homes to more higher end homes and pricing. Both are quality desirable areas and I wouldn’t be concerned about crime in either of those neighborhoods. Typically, due to the size of the area, Barkly has more available inventory. I’m taking a new listing up in Barkley this coming week. We haven’t priced it yet, I’m meeting with them Monday to get things rolling. If you’d like some preliminary info. before it hits the market, feel free to drop me an email and I’d be happy to get you the scoop.
