In answer to your question, I would feel perfectly happy living on the OKR, but you obviously need to take precautions. Some people will tell you that the OKR is 'notorious' and there are occasional shootings, but, in my view, this is part of living in an exciting part of a world city.
Have you thought about renting for a few months before taking the plunge and buying?
The Tesco OKR re-development proposal, if it gets the go ahead, and the Cross-River Tram, if it takes the route through Burgess Park
, are both likely to have a positive impact on values.
If you send me a Private Message with an idea of your budget, I may be able to help more.
