Your question is a little hard to answer without knowing specifics. Because the "average" neighborhood in the Victor Valley can have a lot of variation between types of residents, one of the things I recommend is cruising the neighborhood on Friday and Saturday night. This will give you a better feel for what things are like in the area you're looking.
Situation can change from block to block, and year to year as people move in and move out. I've seen nice neighborhoods go bad, and formerly bad areas become revitalized.
Victorville, and the High Desert are in a bit of an economic slump, and this leads to higher vacancy rates and more rentals, which tend to make neighborhoods less attractive. Regarding 4th, keep in mind that commercial truck traffic will be increasing on Nisqualli Rd., after they finish the overpass at the end of 2013.

The first thing to do is contact your local police department.

Let them do the research on the owner's. Once located, the police will let them know what's going on.

It's great to know that neighbors still watch out for each other!

Call the Housing Authority of San Bernadino County. See

Or you might want to contact the owner or the owner's agent. Unfortunately, you can't search through the county records with an address. But here are some links that can help:

Hope that helps.

My Advice to you may not be what you want to hear, as my advice will cost you money before you even talk to a Loan Officer and a Realtor. But, as the old saying goes,"Don't be penny wise and pound foolisih."

You need to consult an Attorney licensed in California (where you live) who is versed in residential real estate law. If you want to do what you refer to as RTO (rent to own), that process has many pitfalls to address & there may be spceific laws in California that address and control the subject.

I am a Realtor & Attorney, licensed in each profession in the State of Ohio only. This year I will celebrate my 30th year of my law Ohio. I am well versed in this topic in Ohio and I know that you need the same such experience in the attorney you hire and the Realtor you work with.

Best of luck in your future home purchase,

Pat Pribisko

That is a valid concern and one that is on the minds of many people when relocating to a new area. If you would like to see the crime statistics in that city and other cites you can go to my website at At my website, you can select any city or if you prefer, you can look up crime statistics by zip code. And you can do it 24 hours a day seven days a week from the comfort of your own home. I would recommend taking this approach and checking out several cities or zip codes.
