When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
This intersection is rife with homeless people, drug dealers, and human feces. Not all of the homeless people are dangerous, but many of them seem aggressive and will get in your face, especially if you're a young woman walking by yourself.... more
Are you referring to Opera Plaza? Deeded parking is also the best as well as buying into a well established HOA with lower dues, provided that the reserves are adequate. HOA dues usually only go up over time (there may be some exceptions to that but they're genenrally rare).
I'd be happy to talk to you more about specifically what work work for you as a trade up property and help you analyze your options.
Feel free to call or email andwe can set up a time
Thanks in advance.
