I have spent 4 days per week since Feb. 14 working on Nolan St. I use a motel on E. Commerce and have never felt unsafe driving around, day or night. I realize this thread is older but wanted to add my 2 cents. I walk to Panchos and Gringos (good restaurant for breakfast & lunch, cooked freshly), corner of N. Pine and Nolan, most days. Everyone I see walking says hello. There are no junky cars around there, it feels like a law-abiding area. Houses are a mix of old and falling down but mostly maintained, old and in good condition, and old and restored. It looks like a good area to buy into now before gentrification gets too far along. I am sure there are some good deals to be had. I have driven around from N. Cherry to New Braunfels Ave, the interstate to E. Commerce.

Most of the good buys are gone. These days most listings are under contract within one day. This goes for fixer-uppers and fully rehabbed homes. It's very difficult to buy a house in Dignowity Hill because so few go on the market and so many buyers are watching, waiting patiently for that one listing.

yes unless you move to the outskirts where the crappy parts thin out.
