Again I am saying I live in Wildomar and love it. Schools are great, kids and teachers communicate, the parents reallly participate! Homes have great space,layouts and yards.. we live on the Grand/ Central side of the 15 backed up against Cleveland Forest.. We looked in Menifee, French Valley, Temecula Murrieta and our agent refused to take us to Wildomar said it was boring.... We said TAKE US... it is very rural in areas, we have a 2 room Post office, we have to drive to Elsinore to go to Walmart or 1 freeway exit to Murrieta. We have our grocery stores, starbucks and mcdonalds, and movie theatre, restuarants are 5 minutes away.. We really do love it here, granted rural isnt for everyone but, less traffic, great homes,less headaches and stress--at least for us. After all, after your hustle and bustle all day at work and commuting, dont you want to sit and relax and enjoy your home? Isnt that the point?

Default You can try to rent a home for short time and decide

Best way to understand the area is to rent a place for short time and see if you really like or not. Sure, Murrieta & Temecula schools are good compared to Menifee and you can get a bigger and newer homes for the same price in Menifee compared to Murrieta or Temecula. But good deals do exist even in Murrieta - you just have to be patient and watch for the listings over a period to get something you like - size, area, likes and dis-likes, kids saftey are all important. In Menifee, like other replies - there are some bad areas and some better ones. I personally live in Murrieta but the school district is really comes under Menifee.

Wow, really? I must be living in a cave. I live in Temecula and don't hear much about any of that. Does that mean it doesn't happen? No of course not. But its certainly no different than anywhere else in the country.

I really encourage you to consider Temecula if you are making such a major move. Of the areas you mentioned, I can garauntee you that Temecula's home values will appreciate the most quickly, so financially it's a good move. Also in terms of schools, I wouldn't lump Temecula, Murrieta and Menifee schools all together- TVUSD is definitely the highest rated and most sought-after district. If you simply must go for the absolute cheapest, perhaps Menifee is a good choice, but for schools, entertainment, convenience, excellent city planning, parks, recreation....you just can't beat Temecula. It would definitely be the wisest investment, and you will enjoy it here so much I know I do...so much so that I started a blog all about Temecula- the address to which you can find in my profile (as I'm not allowed to post it in the body of my response ). Also, if you can, come for a visit to all these towns. I think you'll feel the difference just as I did. Good luck!
