I have lived in this neighborhood for 21 years and i have seen nor heard of any crime in this area. it is a historic area with a lot of old houses and older people. We barely see anyone because either the residents are in the house or out somewhere, and when we do see each other we speak and have short conversations. i love this area. of course Memphis has crime, as to anywhere else that you move to. Memphis is a growing city and yes some areas are worst than others but its what you make of it. It may not b better than where you are coming from, but i love Memphis!

Wow, that is a terrible area - I mean REALLY BAD. I do not know what you mean by ward, but it's just a bad area overall. I grew up in midtown in 30104 in a beautiful mansion, we had a beloved maid, a yard man, groceries delivered, private schools, music lessons, tennis lessons, swimming lessons, horseback riding lessons, the best of everything. It was a Camelot back then. But since then, it has really gone down hill - all of Memphis, and I wouldn't adivse anyone to live here unless they have absolutely no other choice. I am headed back to California (where I've lived since 1990) as soon as the closing for the sale of my childhood home has concluded, by the end of July. I can tell you that way back when I was a little girl, I would never have gone to the 38108 zip code for anything, and I can tell you now, that I wouldn't go there for any reason either. If you're in Venice Beach - stay there, for the love of God, stay! I LOVE Venice Beach, CA...good ole 92091! Love it...I lived almost right on the boardwalk from 1990-1993 - in an adorable little wood two story apartment building with only 4 units - at 39 24th Avenue...so charming...just a stroll down the flower-strewn garden walk way to the beach! Or if you're in the 'real' Venice, Italy, too stay! Stay there! You don't want to live in Memphis, trust me. The crime is out of control - but particularly in the zip code you are asking about . Very bad area, very bad.

The homes in this zip code are all older homes built in the 1940's-1950's. On our MLX exchange the list prices ranged from $7500 to $125000 and there are currently 160+ listed. Some are investment rentals and others are lived in by homeowner. I do not know the ward, but the district is #7. Go to http://www.greatschools.net to check out the schools for the 38108 zip code. Go to http://www.shelbysheriff.org to check out the crime activity in the 38108 zip code. Email me if I can assist you further. Regards, Kim Rasche
