From Meridian St. west there is more crime. Check the crime reports. Hemet does get a bad rap and it does have it's problems. If you don't have to raise kids it is not a bad place to live. It is NOT always hot. If you want a place to live that is less expensive and a slower pace with all the conveniences that you need it is not bad. I moved here seven years ago and have never had a problem. Pay attention and lock your doors and you should be fine. I lived in San Diego most of my life and I am happier here. The closer you live to stores the more there is crime. Guess these crooks don't all have cars. ... more

First of all, no city is completely 100% safe and you always have to be on your guard.

But don't just take it from me, Ray the Realtor. I spent several years as a Deputy Sheriff in Fontana, Rialto, Bloomington, & Rancho Cucamonga & then more as a Police Officer in Pomona. When it comes to gangs and crime, I've seen it all. When I take buyers out to show homes, the things I look for that many don't notice are the telltale signs of crime. Many times, when buying a home, the excitement can block your view of things that I notice right away. And I use my particular set of skills, education, expertise and experience to help my clients find the right place to live. Take a drive around at different times of the day and night and on weekends, especially Friday and Saturday nights. Go to the police station and ask to speak with the officer that handles that beat during swing shift. He or she can give you far more insight than anyone else here.

Also, take a look at the following website for more detailed info on crime in this and any other area you may be interested in: https://www.crimereports.com/

Your BEST option, if you're serious about purchasing a home is to get with a Realtor who knows the area and can help you through the process. That's the FIRST and foremost step in finding a safe home. Check with friends and family to see if they can refer someone to you or research sites, such as this one to find a good professional Realtor.

Also, you can download my FREE Real Estate Search app & have access to all homes for sale right at your fingertips. No more waiting for a Realtor to call you back. Simply text the letters: KW2KTBUIZ to the number: 87778 and download the app.

Good luck!

Anthony Mercado answered:
What we learned in the universities is normally the lower avg. income is for an area, the higher the crime rate, and the area looks worse. Whereas the higher income areas have a lower crime rate, higher amount of owner occupied homes meaning the area tends to look nicer because home owners tend to take more pride in what there homes and neighborhood looks like. So find the avg income of individuals, and owner occupied compared to renters in Hemet and you get a better idea of the area. ... more

I've lived in Hemet for 19 years, this is an okay area on a scale of 1-10 ten being the safest I would give it a 7.

Reason being is because while the enclosed area itself is rated higher the surrounding area is not as good. As you can see on the map other development are to the east which are priced lower and there are many more rentals in the area.
Just about any time lower priced homes and high number of rentals in the areas are near by it means lower income families are near by, and even though I hate saying this, normally when lower-income households are in the area so comes the "rift raft". I actually struggled with this thought because I came from a lower income family and disagreed, when it was told to me by my college professor. but as researched it for myself I found it was true.

But I would say this is on the safer side of town with easy access to roads that can get one to the freeways quickly, also there are near by shopping centers Such as Walmart, Target, Lowes, Home depot and more.

No problem Suzi, thanks for the response. I hope your purchase goes through.

In relation to your smog post, I've been waiting for the smoke to clear before commenting again. It sounds like that one poster is a very disgruntled person and is taking it out on everyone else. ... more
