Help the community by answering this question:


like every community there are better sections. I would encourage to contact the local police department or check out their website. All the stats are available to you and you can decide what area you feel safe and comfortable in. coming from the East Coast myself...a native to New York, I was pleased with most areas as I had experienced more crime from my old neighborhood. It is just a matter of what you are used to and are looking for. You can feel free to search for nieghborhoods and homes on my website. It is a free, no pressure was of touring the Oceanside coast while you are in the just looking phase of your search.

Hi Kathy,

I feel there are good areas and bad areas of Oceanside, and sometimes they can be right next to each other. It's important to use a local knowledgeable Realtor to help you with this kind of information since you will be new to the area.

We have a great website put out by all the police stations in the county which will show you crime activity for any 3 month period. Sometimes the website is a little hard to use, but the information is invaluable:


I like Rancho Del Oro region which is between Oceanside Blvd and Hwy 76, and Rancho Del Oro Rd and N. Santa Fe. The area is generally well maintained, reasonable house prices, good schools in both the Oceanside and Vista school districts, and close to shops and services. Fire Mountain, Jeffries Ranch, and Ocean Hills are also popular for differing reasons.

What kind of home and price range did you have in mind?

Similar to any city of similar sizes, Oceanside has desirable and less than desirable neighborhoods. Safety is of paramount concern. Also consideration should be given to other factors that impact the individual moving into the area. Schools for home buyers with children, as well as parks, and community activities. Seniors may need other area amenities and services. Military family has additional concerns, etc.

Look to a Realtor to provide you with all relevant information about neighborhoods and
address your concerns.

If I can be of assistance please call.
