Cordova is going to hell in a handbasket and fast, and don't let any realtor tell you lies about it. I have LIVED it. I was born in Memphis into a wealthy family in a huge, fashionable Midtown estate in 1964. Memphis was wonderful back then. But it's different now - so crime-ridden, so dangerous...you just don't feel safe much of anywhere here...even in the 'best' areas such as Germantown - just look at the crime stats. They're all true. And the schools are just awful - no funding, no good programs. I had to come back here a few months back to settle my mother's estate, and have been here longer than expected - I lived with my best friend, who is a nurse married to a doctor , in Cordova - in a 'good' area of Cordova. And you see thugs walking down the street in their so-called 'nice' neighborhood every single day! I really cannot believe it. I have told my friend to move, but she says that she and her doc hubby are too entrenched here with their medical practice etc so........Anyway, if you buy a house in Cordova, not only will you be sorry, but you will not be able to unload it. There are sooooooooooooooo many houses for sale in Cordova - they're dirt cheap - yes, but is it really worth it to live somewhere cheap, just to save money when you could be subject to violent crime??? Think twice.
