I cannot make a judgment on that complex specifically but if I were renting my gut would be to be further away from shopping centers. That's just a general statement...

Perhaps others can chime in. I do shop there often, though.

The only consistently upscale areas in Riverside County are Temecula, Murietta and Dutch Village. Wildomar, Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Perris, Hemet, Winchester, etc. leave a lot to be desired in terms of safety, cleanliness, people quality, etc.

I'm trying to understand why you would omit South Corona, Norco Hills and Eastvale as good areas...

Why avoid shopping centers? I like being able to walk to things. does it attract bad elements near that walmart?

If we're talking about the Wal-Mart at McKinley/Griffin, IMO no different from any other Wal-Mart. My brother worked there for like 13 years.

What I'm mostly interested in is the newer (post 1970), nicer apartments or condos for lower prices in good areas. I don't plan on ever buying a single family home, maybe a townhouse eventually.
Riverside has a lot going on. Maybe not as much as West L.A., but you have the advantage of lower housing prices.

I have no idea how accurate this link is (from 2016) but at least it gives you a breakdown in median housing prices, some as low as $225 K, so condos or townhomes might be lower. https://www.homesnacks.net/best-neig...ide-ca-128179/

I moved from Mid OC to Corona Eastvale area and I like it. The commute is a pita but overall I have no regrets.

Thank you. I drive all the way across the SFV to the Walmart in Porter Ranch every now and then just to get some things I can't find at Pavilions and regular grocers or Target. I like the thought of having one in walking distance for random things.

Thanks for your help everyone. I'm thinking Corona might be a good place to settle on for work because I could live in either Riverside, Corona, or OC and do the anti-commute on the 91.

I can understand that, but I do think there is a bit more crime around shopping centers in general. Plus there is more noise. But it is convenient...

One other question. What about TV and radio reception?

In Long Beach I could get over 100 stations (though most weren't in English or non preaching/shopping). Can you get any stations over the air with an indoor hd antenna in Corona/Riverside? Or is it a cable required area?

I'm not a huge tv person, but I do like the news sometimes. Are there any LA stations that come in better out there?
