Many investors make the mistake of going for the "big money" and they lose out on properties that are steady income generators. Murrieta/Temecula are popular areas because Temecula schools have the highest API in Riverside county. Murrieta is not that far behind.

vacany rate is average, based on all types of housing. I looked at some management site and they said 1-3 weeks, which I doubt it in this market as bad as Murrieta with unemployment rate Murrieta has.

If some professional have different perspectives, I really appreciate it if they can share it here. I really want to invest into rental house in Murrieta but still debating if I should or stick with north/west Riverside counties instead.

Is that vacancy rate for apartments or single family homes? I don't have any actual statistics but I have heard anecdotally that SFR's rent up well in that Temecula/Murrieta. Maybe try and call some local properties managers and ask them how long it's taking to rent up properties and the quality of tenants.
