Great info from Anna. When researching, be sure to narrow down Mountain House by Zip Code which is 95391. The statistics can be easily mistaken. I believe the numbers include Tracy as well. Take a look at the map here: http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Mountain_House-California/crime/ and you can see that Tracy, CA is also in the map which is a larger city and includes multiple neighborhoods. The only reports I see in Mountain House is related to theft which may likely be due to when there were many vacant homes sitting. This seemed to be common in most new communities that had a high vacancy rate due to the depressed market. This has since changed. With limited inventory and the size of Mountain House, the town has been rediscovered and has come back strong.
