Does it have to be San berdo? Some small mountian towns/cities may have small homes for sale... Arrowhead, Big Bear, Sugar Loaf.. are a few. The closer to the water the more expensive. Also some dessert cities Hemet, Quail Valley, Lake Perris or Lake Elsinore..
Good Luck!

OK ct-
I've lurked and read long enough. I've lived in 8 cities in 5 states over the last 30 years. Never did I put so much effort researching where to buy a home as when we took a transfer to come to SoCal.
There are decent places to rent that are close to, but not IN San Bernardino.
I realize that you won't be buying a home, but even having an address of San Bernardino on your license can raise eyebrows for anyone who knows it. You may very well pay higher insurance rates for living in this notoriously high crime area. Not to flame anyone from SB; I know its gotten better, but bad reputations are often deserved. Just read the local papers-Press Enterprise (best) and SB Sun(ok to fair)
Here's my suggestion: look into an apt in Grand Terrace, Colton(but only in the small area near the Ashley Furniture/RV complexes are good and surprisingly affordable). Also check out Loma Linda, Redlands, Mentone and Yucaipa. You won't have any traffic to fight to speak of coming from any of these cities. If you are employed in N. SanBerdo, you can start taking the new 30/210 to work next Tues when it opens. Hopefully this will take some of that crappy traffic off the 10 fwy!
As far as pollution, yeah, its bad. Simply exercise in the early morning hours just as the sun comes up. If you live in Redlands or Loma Linda, you won't fear for personal safety being out that time of day. In the mornings you can see the mountains clearly and the cool air is refreshing even on days that will get hotter later. In the winter, the days are much clearer (unless there's rain/snow clouds), and it is absolutely stunning to see the snow on the mountaintops while you enjoy the day without a jacket. SoCal can be a good place if you make an effort to appreciate it. That said, I am glad this is not my forever home. Retirement will take us elsewhere, but meanwhile, the money is what keeps us here. Good Luck

No you are alright don't worry about anything. Your out of the area that I mentioned.

People from all over the world come to the Coachella Valley for its beauty and gorgeous weather 9 months out of the year.

The Desert Area MLS is the Multiple Listing Service for the Coachella Valley.

I would recommend you check out Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, La Quinta or Indian Wells. You will most likely want to stay away from Desert Hot Springs, Indio and Cathedral City, although parts of Indio are actually pretty nice because they are in the process of revitalizing the area. Some parts of Cathedral City can be alright as well. Oh, and you might also want to check out Palm Springs, but there are parts of Palm Springs you will want to steer clear of too. If you check it out and have any questions about where the good areas are and what you should stay away from, I am just a PM away!

Which is great!!! I want a small house or cottage type of place.
But there must be a catch...Why so cheap? Is it a safe place?
Please, anything you can tell me would really be appreciated.
I live 2000 miles away, now.
