I'll expand on the answer given by Nikki below, we cannot steer clients to or from neighborhoods and we cannot answer a question regarding "high crime areas" as it is too loosely defined. One crime may be "high crime" to you and 20 may be "high crime" to another. It is best for an agent to refer you to the local PD as Nikki did or refer you to other websites. Don't forget the meaganslaw website too at
Murrieta is a nice area, check crime statistics, they can be googled. But, better yet, if you come in the area, drive by the neighborhood and see for yourself. Signs of a high crime are not present in this area.
This would be a good move as the schools are ranked high, the neighborhoods are family oriented, there's tons of parks, jobs and dining and shopping.
If you'd like to take a look, I will be in Temecula this weekend.

Like all other cities, you have your good areas and you have your bad areas. As Realtors, we're not really allowed to say "Stay away from this neighborhood, or another." What I do recommend is to first determine what area of Murrieta you want to live in, and then call the Murrieta Police Department to get their input on the crime rate in that area.
Here's the link to the Murrieta PD
