Neighborhoods are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you. When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. Again, if unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Meli Van Natta answered:
Yes, we had repairs done to the plumbing and electrical, replaced the missing air conditioner, and had the yard cleaned up. The only issue I can see is that the slatted patio cover would probably not pass because it has dry rot and peeling paint. But it could easily be removed for an FHA loan. However, we already have several Cash offers and one Conventional financed offer, so it is not likely that an FHA offer would be accepted. ... more

Property tax rates differ from county to county and even city to city.

If you buy a home in a new or newer development you may have a special tax which helps pay for building and maintaining roads, parks, and schools. These "special" taxes are usually in effect for a specified period of time.

You can contact the county tax office of the city you are thinking of buying in. They can tell you WHERE those precious tax dollars go.

Good news is as a property owner the property taxes you pay can be written off on our federal tax return.

As a renter you pay your landlords taxes ( they usually factor that into the monthly rent they charge) and you do not get to write it off:)

Best of luck to you!!!

I would be happy to help you. It seems that you have been house hunting for some time, and because you mention FHA in a couple of posts it is likely that have you spoken to a lender.

If you are ready to make an offer then let's do it! Contact me immediately so we can make this happen for you.

Always Glad to Help,

I've been working with investors and buying properties myself in Moreno Valley/Riverside for the past 3 years. The market gets loose and tight every 3-4 months.
A flip has a typical turn around of 4-6 months depending on whether or not it's occupied.
My contractor has a turn around time of 3-6 weeks.
Typical cash on cash return is 15-20% ROI.

Rent is is about $1.10 a sqft.
The best rentals are 1200-1700 sqft.
4 bedrooms are easier to rent than 3.
Vacancy rate is 1-2 months.
Typical gross cash returns is $300-$400 a month.
Homes built 1977-1999 have the best tax rates

I have turn key system in place. If you'd like to grab some lunch and go over my purchase matrix fell free to call. Stephen McKee 951-486-1259

Good evening Idezynit:

I may be able to help you. The county tax assessor's office has a form that can be filled out and submitted to reset the value of a property to the current market level. It is completed by a real estate agent. I do this service for my clients free of charge and would be happy to assist you in the hopes this will help.

Please email me at or call my cell phone 951-660-1824. I work with Re/Max Results in Moreno Valley (23580 Sunnymead Blvd 92553).

Best of luck and I hope I have the opportunity to be of assistance.

Hi Marian,
It's all based on preferrences, I have clients that have bought in Moreno Valley and Perris. They get more for their money although the trade off is the commute.

If you like I can send you recent sales in Moreno Valley.

Best Regards,
