Hi

I am thinking of buying a place on Garson - not too far from Goodman. Where is the the border between the good area and the bad area in there?

I used to live in this area on Grand Ave in between Webster and Culver. (Grand Ave is a block north of Garson.) The area is on a decline. We were lucky to be able to sell our house without a huge loss. At one point, when we bought, it was a bit on the upswing - never happened and that whole area has gone downhill. Frequent burgalry problems, drugs, crime, esp on Parsells St. When we lived there, Culver Road was really the cut-off, east of Culver was generally OK. Culver Road itself looks worse than it did 10 years ago in that area - more run down. So, the OK area has now moved closer to Merchants Road - I'd say that you are OK east of Merchants Road.

Up until two years ago, I had close friends on Grand just east of Culver. Back then, parts of Garson west of Culver seemed especially bad. I personally would not live on Garson near Goodman. Nor would I buy investment property there -- just too rough for my blood.

I would not live in that area. You'd lose big time on the house.
