I've lived here since 1999 and never had a problem. It's quiet, safe (of course the lock your car/house doors rule applies, no valuables left in the car etc but that's everywhere now) and a great location for downtown/plaza workers to live. If you're a condo/homeowner you get 2 off street parking spaces. 1 if you rent apparently. I do agree property values won't rise much but you can live here and own for less than rent anywhere.
