We have lived in Corona for 5 years however we have friends in the Murrieta/Menifee areas and we considered selling our home and purchasing there...our main concern since we don't know the area too well, and our friends have only been in the area for a year, is getting info on how the schools, crime rate and overall community is...while Corona has a lot to offer, it seems for a family of 6, economically it would make sense to move to somewhere more affordable where we could get more space for the price. Any recommendations, info on the city and schools or advice on wether or not you regret moving to these areas?

murrieta/temecula is safer than corona hands down. however, the biggest problem is it adds another 30+ miles (and 30+ minutes) to get anywhere in OC or LA.

I wouldn't say it's the same as "everywhere". There are some places such as Murrieta that simply do not have any bad areas. For example, one reason we chose not to go to Corona because the homes that we were interested in, the high school for the area is the infamous Centennial High, known for gangs. There aren't any gangs in Murrieta/Temecula regardless of which high school in the area.

We have lived in Murrieta for 11 years and we love it. We moved here from San Diego. Murrieta has a very low crime rate, excellent schools, and there are no bad areas. it is true you are 30 miles farther from Los Angeles however you are 30 miles closer to San Diego which is far more important to us than Los Angeles. Neither of us work outside our home so commuting is not an issue. If you have to commute then you will have to consider that.

I don't know why you'd say that being closer to SD is more important than LA other than for personal preference. I meant from practicality LA is where the vast majority of jobs are at. The GDP of Sd cannot even be compared to LA. LA's gdp is the second largest in the entire country , SD is #16. Therefore if you're concerned about job security and chances are having to commute daily to a job, being closer to LA would be 8x a safer bet than living closer to SD.

That said, I'd rather be in SD on the weekend relaxing.

I specifically said that being closer to San Diego is more important for us. Commuting to a job is not something that I have to do. Nobody in my neigborhood commutes outside of the area. I would never live in this area if I had to commute to work in SD ir LA/OC.

I get it. It's the 55+ community. FWIW, I don't commute either unless you count downstairs a commute and I'm probably less than half your age, but now that we're done patting ourselves on the back, the reality is the vast majority of people do commute. Or were you giving advice to the OP with the assumption that they were retired?

You are being presumptuous. We don't live in a 55+ community. We live in a very nice area with a mix of families with children, working people, and a few retirees.
