I'm not a realtor so I can tell you straight up that you have to be a bit of an urban pioneer to live there. Join nodaneigborhood group on Yahoo Groups and just watch the action for a while before you buy. There is quite a bit of property crime and it borders some rough areas. Also, my former realtor lied to me on this point - the train goes through, blowing its whistle several times a day at all hours. Hang out there and maybe rent before you buy if you can.

Flood Insurance is ALWAYS a good idea.


There were plenty of homes in Plaza Midwood, Elizabeth, Myers Park and others that were not considered "Flood Zones." But if you're near a creek, and there is a rain storm, the creek may flood. We've all seen it.

And so, just because some surveyor or official says your home may technically be high enough not to have to qualify for flood insurance, it may still be a good idea to have it. Because I know I have thousands of dollars invested in my property and landscaping-- not just the structure of my house. And I would not have the money to fix it back if my property flooded.

The SWZ doesnt mean it WILL flood, it means it has the POTENTIAL to flood. Insurance is also peace of mind. And if you own a kayak, keep it handy.

If this answered your question, please give me a "THUMBS UP" or "BEST ANSWER"-- thanks!
