I've been renting in the 19th Ward for about 4 1/2 years, saving money to purchase a home in the area. Parts of the neighborhood have gone down tremendously due to the economy, slum, out of site investors, property managers who don't maintain the properties, bad tenants, crime and violence (gangs), etc. If I didn't keep up the property I'm renting, or stay on the property management company's case, I would be SOOL. This Spring alone has me second guessing about purchasing a home in the 19th Ward. I've seen an increase in rowdiness, gangs, people cutting through backyards, etc. I'm blessed to have a cirlcle of nosy neighbors (home owners..some retired) who are always looking out. We've got eachother's backs day and night. If the 19th Ward doesn't do a swift turn around, the rest of it's beauty and peace will be destroyed. There are too many multi-dwellings being occupied by disrespecful people. ... more

If you need an attorney my eviction attorney is great I can refer you. ... more

The only good answers are the ones you find out for your self. Most agents web sites offer statistics on crime and more by zip code. Working with a realestate professions will help. Talk with people that live there. If you don't know anyone visit the local stores ask questons there. ... more
