I've lived in the Victor Valley for 17 years and love it. I've lived in Apple Valley 4 years and don't want to move.
If you thinking about moving you can starting looking the link to the Daily Press, http://www.vvdailypress.com
It gives you some what of a idea about living here.
There are areas in Apple Valley I would not want to live in. It's not all great.
Things some of my buyers have told me they don't like, so wouldn't be good for resale.....
too many apartments or rentals in the area
too many foreclosers in an area.
I always tell people, go by the police/sherriff's office and ask them would they like their favorte aunt to live in that house. You don't want to buy next to the neighbood problem. Ask people you see. Sat is a great day to catch people home. I'd ask.....Would you buy here again? Are you planning on staying? Any major problems around here?
Check, check and re-check. We as agents can only say or know so much. I can only tell you for sure about my block.
Just find someone you can trust to help you.
Happy House Hunting,
