Default Moving to Hesperia

First post here

Me and my girlfriend of 4 years are looking into buying our first home in Hesperia, CA. She lived there and grew up there as a child and we both visited there last summer for a month long vacation. I grew up in East Tennessee and spent all my life there. There's too much rain and everyone knows everyone else there. I need a change and she would love to go back to Hesperia.

Though we stayed there for a month, the place has changed a little bit since she grew up there. Our budget is around 90,000 and we have found some places but want to know about any bad areas in Hesperia. What places are bad? What places are good? Those sort of things.

Right now we are in the planning process but have not fully committed until I complete a transfer through my job. My job will be up the hill so no worries there

Thanks in advance!

Your wife grew up there but she doesn't know what the bad ares are? How long has she been gone?

I did a quick search just for the hell of it, and I estimate 90% of the inventory I saw from 92k and under were shorts. Good luck there.

The neighborhood known as The Mesa isn't bad. For that price point, you might want to look out in the desert East of the city limits, on the other side of the river beyond Rock Springs and Deep Creek.

My girlfriend did live there yes, but it has been about 10 years. Since it'll be just the two of us, we're not really looking for anything too big.

That's multiple times I've heard Mesa is a pretty good area. What about Eucalyptus near the 15? There's a couple places in that area in our price range and the right size.

I wouldn't hesitate to live there, East of the 15.

I lived on "The Mesa" area for many years. Nice area, also anything on the northern or western trim of Hesperia is good as well. Stay away from I Ave or anything remotely close to Bear Valley Rd which divideds Victorville and Hesperia.

Homes on the back area towards Hesperia Lake/Deep Creek are are nice as well. They were building like crazy when we left.

They thing is be careful with your price range. Some might put you in areas you need to be avoiding.

Too much traffic along Main St, not enough alternative routes to get over the Berlin Wall(BNSF Train tracks), and too windy.

Lived here since '87, so if you're down with the above, then the rest is a cakewalk.

Yes, the wind is horriable. It rare to have a day without wind. I would rather fight Main St then Bear Valley Rd though

There's only one business off BVR that's worth putting up with the traffic, and that's the Vallarta Supermarket off Mariposa. But it's right off the freeway, so I don't have much BVR traffic to endure.
