Hello Ryan, you are going to have to do some due diligence for yourself. You can check the following websites for schools and crime and even call the local police for their website records.

These links may assist you with crime statistics:

http://www.crimereports.com
http://www.everyblock.com/
http://www.localcrimenews.com
http://www.mylocalcrime.com
http://www.spotcrime.com/ca
http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov
http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/
http://www.homefair.com/

Theses links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:
http://www.greatschools.org/
http://Www.schoolfinder.ca.gov
http://Www.education.com
http://Www.schooldistrictfinder.com
http://Www.schooldigger.com
http://www.sarconline.org/

You will have to be pre-approved to be able to meet any agents to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs?

If you figure out what cities or by zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve you can be set up for daily automatic emails to fit your search criteria from any agent with your email address...

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. You may qualify to buy with minimal our of pocket expenses with down payment and closing cost assistance programs and pay about the same as rent payment.

The rentals in Santa Fe Springs start from $1,380 for 1bd 1ba apt and the single family homes start from $2,800 for 3bd 2ba home. The purchase start from 335k for 2bd 1.5ba condo and up.

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 and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Rich Reed answered:
Months Supply of Inventory is often used as an indicator of a buyer's or seller's market. Typically, a market that favors sellers has less than 6 months of supply, while more than 6 months of supply indicates an excess of homes for sale that favors buyers. 91601 currently has 1.7 months supply of single family homes, so by that measure it would be considered a seller's market.
