We think the answers below are all good, however it would be best to connect with a local area Realtor who could also do a comparative market analysis (CMA) of comparable homes in the area that are just a few years older and compare what they are selling for in similar condition to get a better idea of what you are getting for your money.
It is also true that with new home builds there is often a Mello Roos tax that you want to ask about however KB was just in our office speaking last week and we are almost sure it was this development that they stated they had taken steps to ensure that there would be NO mello roos for this development. If you would like us to verify that for you we would be happy to. Contact us at 951-314-0607.... more

The red areas are long term highest crime areas. The green areas are the safest areas. Yellow-orange areas have a medium amount of crime, long term. Orange-red have higher crime rates, long term.
The black dots are recent crimes, as differentiated from long term crime trends. You'll notice that when you mouse over to a black dot, it shows perhaps a couple of recent crimes and the nature of them. I haven't figured out how to see all the recent crimes as seen when you put your mouse pointer on the black dots.
Hope that helps. If you can, stay with the green areas that have the fewest black dots. That's your best bet for being in a safe neighborhood. Some folks who are honest, don't have much money, and sadly, they cannot afford to live away from higher crime areas.... more
This is my specific area of expertise. Just an FYI the trustee sale is selling around 78-82% ARV. There mid cap builders have moved into the market.
The REO market is getting tight because the majority of properties will go FHA but I'm still closing 1 deal for every 40-50 offers.
Short sales seem to be the way to go but only if the property is in unlendable condition. Listing agents want cash offers to send in to the bank so even if they are rejected they have an approved sales price and can close their listings fast.
I'll be out of town with family Saturday but and available for questions Sunday before 1pm (PS time) or after 8 am (PS time) Monday.
another thing you could do is just go knock on homeowner's doors. Ask them who their HOA is & what their contact info is. On a Saturday you could just drive through sections or what appear to be different negihborhoods, you can tell by the name at the entrance to any section.... more
Speaking to your question about benefits of the area... You can buy a ton of home (less than 6 years old) for a spectacular price... while still being able to commute to Los Angeles or Orange County.... more
Chino Hills is in San Bernardino County and is known to be a little bit pricier than Corona. Corona is in RIverside County. Both the areas you mentioned are very close to each other. Inland Empire is a popular area because it offers reasonable prices; from first time buyers or a move up buyer, as well as if a buyer wants to purchase a new or a resale home.

Hello again Bighazz,
A little more info this time. So you are already in foreclosure. Sounds like you're going through a very hard time. Sorry for you. Be careful giving the bank any money at this point. Make sure you communicate with them ASAP. Even if you send them the money they may continue to foreclose anyway. You should probably consider using that money to go and try to rent somewhere else. If you can't afford the payments then you are just postponing the enevitable. I'm never an advocate of foreclosure, it's horrible, but sometimes you just need to move on. See about contacting a consumer advocate for foreclosure prevention, like Operation Hope. See link below. They have trained councelors that can look at your situation and give you free advise. They will even get on the phone with you in a conference call while youo talk to the mortgage co. But don't send them a dime until you talk to them. You may need that money for you and your daughter to move on. Good luck!... more
Sean is correct ask for what you want and then decide what home is right for your family. You can search all current MLS listings at my website www.koziel.com and then click on the MLS Homes Search button. Once the listings come up you can click on neighborhood or school data and review the charts and information. Good Luck and don't forget to look in zip code 92883 as well. Sharon... more
