Default Need info on Mesa - W University / N Dobson Rd Area

I am moving "somewhere" in the Phoenix area, close to ASU in the next month or two and saw a few resonably priced places in the Casa Mesa 2 neighborhood, between W University to the north, W Main to the south, N Sycamore to the west and N Longmore to the east.

I am looking for any info on this area or this part of Mesa.


Thanks for your help

You probably want to avoid area some of the worst neighborhoods in Mesa. If you are going to ASU there is nice housing right around ASU.

Default casa mesa

you just described the area I live in and own a home. I moved in, in early 2012 and love this location the convenience is better than almost any other home subdivision around. I work for the airline and take the train to work or home around 4 times a week. I even started renting my house out on the weekends when i'm working and have 5 positive reviews so far from people who have stayed at my house. I wonder if the area was really even that bad 3 years before I bought my house. my house has doubled in value since I got it so I'm so glad everyone else was scared away! I see that 35k people read this thread and I'm sure locked the info away about it being a bad neighborhood.

The only thing I don't like about the neighborhood is the shopping carts that wind up around it there's a cash for metal location not far from my house. I'd like the city to put in an ordinance that metal collection locations can't be within a mile radius of residential areas. that would fix the problem in the meantime I just push them into ally's and call for pickup.

here's the city data info on the homes between sycamore and alma school looks like everyone has decent finances. the data did show 50% hispanic so I guess if you're racist you might jump to conclusions about the area.
Median household income: $41,250
Median house or condo value: $97,076
Median contract rent: $603
Unemployment: 3.9%
Residents below the poverty level: 11.3%
Median resident age: 31

The original post is from five years ago, so that poster has moved on. Your info may help others, though.
