As long as you live within city limits, you would be within 10-15 minutes from Joe Davis stadium. Traffic is never an issue as Huntsville is relatively small city, comparatively speaking. However, the closer you live to stadium, rents would be higher east of Memorial Pkwy and lower on west side of Memorial Pkwy. Safest would also follow same rule. Less crime on east side of Memorial Pkwy. Keep in mind these statements are in general. ... more

Lenders (not FHA) may have additional overlays. For example - even if it was an FHA loan, Chase requires the following:
