Well, I am considering moving to the Clearlake area. Actually, Lucerne looks good. I am working with an agent who sold my current home. I'm moving there because of the housing prices. I am retired. I did my homework and I looked up the crime stats on a regular crime stat website, not the ones through R.E. Companies. The crime scores are horrid. as of 2015. The overall score was 356.04 which is 256.04 times higher than the national average. Violent crime is a big horror at 411.00 which is 311.00% higher than the National Average. It's only 100 lower than New Orleans, LA. where I once lived and at least there were things to do there. What a shock! I suppose it is from all the meth use in the area. I mean really, for a rural area the crime is atrocious. So, I am trying to stick to a few areas such as Clearlake Oaks, Northern Lockport, and Lucerne. I was absolutely shocked though when I went over the real crime data. I assumed that the bad people were like around 20% and were in a specific area, but now I guess they pretty much flooded the area. I suppose you have to be really careful where you move if you value your person and property. I'm a good shot (had a concealed weapons permit in NOLA), but I sure don't want any crazed tweaker bum rushing me or crashing through my front door. ... more

I have a friend who is a veteran, and he is extremely offended that the flags are being used for advertisement, and that the flags are then allowed to rot in place by the people who leave them. I pick up the flag by my mailbox before dark on the day it is put out, so at least it isn't displayed in the dark, and I pick up flags in the neighborhood that are getting dirty. Then I give them to my friend. I think he has them burned as part of a ceremony, as is required by the US Flag Code. If there is one real estate agent I will never do business with in this town, it is the goofball that puts out those flags with her business card. ... more

I grew up in the area directly north of the facility. At the time it was referred to as Milliken Hills (sp?). My mother remembers seeing the big trucks drive back into the hills at night... I also remember riding our bikes down the dirt roads and riding past gates with big yellow radiation signs on them. (I was about 6-7 years old, zero idea what that meant - this was in the early 80s) We dug forts back there and literally spent ALL of our days there. My brother ended up with Stage 4 breast cancer that matastisized into his spine. Our family does not carry the gene. We have both suffered from almost non stop bloody noses our entire lives... Again which no one else in our family has. For the people saying that you have a chance of getting cancer anyway, that's ridiculous. I would think twice before I allowed my kids to play in nuclear waste. That's no trade off for good schools and beautiful scenery... That is absolutely NOT what I would consider to be a "safe" place to live. ... more

You should look at the apartments next to The Collection shopping center in the Oxnard/Riverpark area. It is just one exit down from Ventura but has lots of things to do in walking distance. If you want to stay in Ventura then you want to look at midtown. East Ventura is residential/family areas. They are nice but they are quiet and they don't get the nice cool ocean breeze. ... more

Sheryl Arndt answered:
Hello Vic, the purchase in Monrovia start from 339k for 2bd 2ba 1,018sf condo. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare. The rentals in Monrovia start from $1,425 for 1bd 1ba apts and up.

You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay about the same as rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.
