Thats sort of a conditional question that Realtors aren't allowed to answer. I will provide you some personal knowledge though- we own a 136 unit apartment complex right in that area and the crime rate varies drastically over a span of four streets. It also changes a lot from the east/ west divide on the I 17. Some well established communities and schools are in this portion of Phoenix, but it takes neighborhood specific knowledge if you are considering buying a house there. As anywhere in Phoenix, a crime rate can vary in a city block, but still be in a very respectable part of town.
To use your own judgement, I suggest google maps street view. If that doesn't answer enough, I suggest asking a Realtor about specific concerns- I would be glad to help if you need it.
