After house hunting, we checked out eastvale and liked how clean and new it felt, however, we noticed a lack mom and pop shops. Do these exists or are they slowly coming up?

Eastvale seems like a decent place for a forever home, do all homes have Mello roos fees? Does anyone know more about these?

Or is eastvale "too good to be true?"

Yes nearly all of the homes are newer and have Mello-Roos fees. There are not many mom and pop businesses at all, you'll have to go to Norco, Chino, Chino Hills, or Corona for that. It is a great bedroom community with good schools.

We actually built in Eastvale in 2002 when it was a part of Corona and the dairies were just clearing out. I no longer live in Ca but when I came back recently I was amazed at how much it has grown. We loved our house and there area. There's a lot of stuff much closer now but there weren't really any mom and pop stores then so I'm sure there aren't many now.

Don't expect many mom and pop shops to open. Independent shops are decreasing in amount.

With the ever-rising min wage/payroll costs, plus increasing rent/taxes/insurance/cost of goods etc..., it's very difficult for established small independent businesses to succeed, let alone brand new ones.

Have to tried looking in other areas? Eastvale houses are great, but I like houses in Rancho Cucamonga and the area is clean and safe too. My boss resides in Eastvale since 15 years and he told me the same thing.

I've been looking at Eastvale as well but inventory is a bit low right now (maybe due to time of year). Good area though with some solid schools. The only crime I've seen there is from a fight that broke out at Tacos Del Rio around 10 years ago (you can YouTube the video, pretty nuts). Very safe area.

I just recently opened my search to Ontario Ranch which seems to be an up and coming community. I love that it has gigabit infrastructure in place and with the Amazon fulfillment center and Costco nearby (as well as other commercial growth), it seems to have good potential.

There's no point for mom and pop shops anymore when we're transitioning to online drone or robot deliveries permanently.
