We've lived in Green Valley Ranch since 1998. We bought our home new. It was built by Oakwood Homes. The quality of the construction is excellent. Our neighborhood is quiet, the neighbors are friendly and helpful. The racial makeup is quite diverse. This neighborhood was hit by the housing crisis just like any other area. There are too many vacancies that look really bad because they're not kept up by the banks that own them. But things are turning around.
There are those who will tell you it's "rough". To put it bluntly, they're racists. They're uncomfortable in any area that is not predominantly white. For the record, we are white, retired, in our middle sixties. We feel very comfortable and secure here.
There has never been any serious crime. Mostly property crimes, that frankly are as much the fault of the victims because they left valuables in their cars, or left their home unsecured. Not to justify the criminal conduct, but nearly all completely preventable.
