You've had some great responses from agents in the area, but I'd suggest you do one more thing. Whenever my buyers are concerned about something very specific to a neighborhood, I encourage them to meet the neighbors before they are committed.
5 years ago we bought a home and did just that. We knocked on all the neighborsâ€™ doors on our cul-de-sac and asked how they liked living here and why, as well as any concerns. Most people will give you an honest response, since they have nothing to gain or lose by doing otherwise. Typically you'll find one neighbor; I call her Gladys Kravitz the nosey neighbor in Bewitched, who knows everyoneâ€™s business and loves to gossip.
Once you find out for sure from disinterested parties, you can feel pretty good you've done all you can do. Unfortunately there is no guarantee someone loud may not move in later.
My name is Miriam and a local resident and realtor here at Orange crest, Riverside, next door to Canyon crest.
We moved at Orange crest in 2001, however, Canyon Crest has been long established years before my area(Orange Crest). It is infact a really quiet and a very desireable neighborhood to live in. I don't want to paint a pretty picture for you but I think you should take a visit to see what it's like.
If you want to tour the area, please let me know. I am just up the street.

Canyon Crest is a very desirable area of Riverside. As a general rule families that live in the area are quiet and respectful. I have sold some homes near the golf course and the people who bought them are very happy with their purchase due to the neighborhood. I recommend driving to the neighborhood on a Saturday night and walking the neighborhood. I think you will see that neighborhood will have activity with people having barbeques and such, yet with a very peaceful atmosphere. I lived in Canyon Crest many years ago, and never did I hear any late night partyâ€™s. If you need more specific info you may contact me at the info below.

I moved from Canyon Crest about 1 & 1/2 years ago after living there for several years. One of the things that attracted me to this older, established area was that it was also known as a very quiet area. Very few loud parties or disturbing neighbors. You are in in the flightpath for March Air Force Base, however I really was never annoyed by the flight noises, which were typically during the day anyway.
Before becoming a Realtor, I spent several years as a Police Officer. The Penal Code section for loud noises or parties is 415 p.c. and the City of Riverside also has their standard local city ordinances that cover loud noises. It's a misdemeanor and usually only carries a fine unless you get unruly when the cops show up. I've shut many a party down in the past
If you are disturbed by loud parties than you can call the police and file a complaint and if you are willing to prosecute than the party can be shut down. if you're wanting to have a party, than I suggest you befriend your neighbors and discuss the party with them ahead of time. Perhaps even invite them. Check with the City of Riverside police department for their individual department policy on loud noises and parties.
If you decide in the near future that you'd like to look into buying a home of your own instead of paying someone else's mortgage, let me know. I'd be happy to assist you!

Most areas of Canyon Crest, if this is the area you're referring to, are quite quiet. While there is no way to provide a 100% guarantee against loud noises, I recommend to my buyers to do some investigation once they have a home in escrow. Depending upon who the seller is, you generally have between 7 and 17 days to withdraw from an escrow penalty free. During this cintingency period, I recommend that they both speak with several neighbors (I'll go along with them if they feel uncomfortable knocking on doors) and to drive the community on a Friday or Saturday night (typical party times) around 9-10pm.
Hope this helps, please contact me if you have any additional questions.
