Hi, everyone If you've read any of my previous posts you'd see that my DH and I have been having a heck of a time purchasing a home in the IE. We are now looking into Riverside and would like to know what neighborhoods/areas are the best for us. We have children who will be going to school so good/great schools are important to us and we are more than willing to do intra-district transfers if need be. All we want is for our kids to get good educations and be in a safe neighborhood and that's pretty much it.

I've read about Orangecrest and the other parts like that but those parts of Riverside are pretty much out of our budget- what other parts are safe and nice? Thank you for the info!

Oh, I see that in past posts you show a 275K limit for buying. Is that current?

Ever thought to consider renting for now if you can't afford a house in the better parts of Riverside?

Either that, or live in an older area.

I'm a product of Alvord Unified, and I feel they did a good job. Try something in the La Sierra High or Hillcrest High zones. Norte Vista's zone should even be mostly fine.

Or, in Riverside Unified, try something in the Ramona (this one is usually zip 92504), Poly, or Arlington High zones.

Whoops, I think I just covered 90% of Riverside.

For a city its size, it really doesn't have school issues. And the neighborhoods that have issues are relatively small pockets (stay out of Arlanza, Casa Blanca, much of East Side).

Good luck.
