If someone gave you a house that needed a lot of work in a very unsafe section of town...

I lived in a part of town many people considered unsafe. In all honesty we didn't have any more problems than the people in the "good" neighbourhoods...so yeah, I take the house, life in it and work my patootie off to fix it up.

The fixing it up part wouldn't be a problem since my husband does remodeling. However, the unsafe part would not work since we have 5 children and I have to think about their safety above all else. I would have to know just how bad the neighborhood was though before deciding.

@MsBooklover There have been many years of my life when I've been too poor to even consider those 'good' neighborhoods. One neighborhood I lived in was like graffiti city. It was everywhere, but I never had any trouble living there.

@just4him I am glad it all worked out for you. The area I would be living in that has a lot of crime if I went back to my roots would be too scary. They even kill homeless people, and they do not have money. it is senseless.
