Seeking opinions on Claremont

Greetings, fair piggs. . .
Although it is admittedly a bit north of the San Diego area, I am seeking some educated opinions on real estate values in the Claremont area. (The one in far eastern LA county, home of the Claremont colleges, not the Clairemont in SD.) My family and I moved to Temecula last summer and are currently renting while we watch the market and save our pennies. We initially picked Temecula because of it's proximity to dh's workplace in Ontario, cost of living, and decent school system. DH travels for work, using Ontario as a hub, so the commute isn't an ongoing issue. Although Temecula is a perfectly nice town, we have come to feel that perhaps it isn't the best long term fit for us. Claremont appeals because of its proximity to Ontario, its walkability, cultural opportunities, educational opportunities for me once kids are raised, good public schools, etc. We initially considered Claremont before moving down here, but discarded the notion because of the great expense. It seems to be shifting a bit downward, as are all areas, and although I am inclined to believe that it will continue to shift downward based on most of the posts here, I am having a fit of anxiety about moving up there and having it NOT shift downward. While I certainly don't expect it to fall as much as say, Temecula, I also don't want to spend a half mil for a fixer-upper on the wrong side of the tracks.
I would appreciate any opinions or even referrals to other sites where I can continue the information gathering process.
