Nope, it's getting better. I had no idea I would hear gunshots when I bought the house but sure enough, several that first summer, then they went down. One block away from me are homes selling for $500-600 and on my same street, just 8 blocks south, are million dollar homes. This is an old tree-lined neighborhood, very desireable. I'm on a good block but surrounded by "changing" blocks where houses are being purchased in the low 100's and renovated to sell close to 300K and they are selling. Old brick homes that are updated are very desireable. I'm several blocks from a new housing development that you have to get on a waiting list to buy a home there. It's actually a new city, built on old airport land, diverse housing from low-income to homes in the millions. New retail is coming all over the place and I'm 3 miles from the downtown area yet have a huge grassy lawn.

Yet still, there are drugs and prostitution on a famous strip near the city, not near my home but there is enough crime (i.e. gunshots) I even witnessed someone one night pull out a gun and shoot it up in the air in the middle of my street, police came, guy drove off, left his girlfriend who said it was nothing. It was drug-related. ANYWAY.... thought I would justify this. Cities change and I do live in a hot area, realtors tell me this all the time.
