I'm considering purchasing a home in Addison. I've rented here for a few years and have had no problems with crime. Addison has such a bad "rep" that I'm a little hesitant. I know the areas to stay away from, and which neighborhoods are good. I love how central Addison is and how close to all the highways. I've become fond of Addison over the years. My question is directed to Addison residents...If you had to buy a house in today's market, would you purchase again in Addison? How do you feel about the schools? The high hispanic population has me worried about future white flight, housing values, schools performance etc.

I've lived in Addison for nearly 27 years, attended Addison schools, and I'm not involved in gangs, drugs or any other BS that Addison seems to be sterotyped with. I not only grew up in Addison I also purchased a home just about a year ago in Addison as well. As long as you stay away from Michael Lane and that side of Lake Street, and the Addison post office you'll be fine. Kings Point has great homes in a safe neighborhood, Westwood etc. Just stay closer to Army Trail. Relax people; Addison isn't a bad town, I'd be interested in hearing which towns are perfectly safe, have NO gang members, NEVER have ANY break ins etc etc. Please enlighten me. The hispanic community is very dominant. .but EVERY hispanic in the town IS NOT a bad person. In my opinion, school systems are great, as long as you have a child willing to learn.

Common Sense and Game Time Dine don't know what they are talking about. Addison is a far better town than some others in the area.
