Is this a good place to raise a family?(as compared to North County)? Noticed a lot of places there have no Mello-Roos and its a bit closer to jobs…January 3, 2007 at 10:47 AM #42598lostkittyParticipant
Just for starters, go to this website:
Type Spring Valley CA into the city and state boxes. Then do the same for some North County city – like Del Mar. You will be shocked at the difference.January 3, 2007 at 11:01 AM #42600sdrealtorParticipant
Great if you are looking for proximity to meth labs.January 3, 2007 at 11:12 AM #42604
I guess I should take this as a “no” then…January 3, 2007 at 11:23 AM #42607Dougie944Participant
This is a no brainer….Spring Valley blows. I lived there for a while when I moved to the San Diego area. My neighbor sold drugs along the street. The house I was living in was broken into twice. The house across the street was broken into 4 times (I think because they took the best care of their house and it looked more promising to the crooks). The house down the street had 2 cops living in it. It was also robbed.
After taking a look at that website posted above, it looks like there is definitely a sex crime problem also. That certainly doesn’t surprise me. The only crime that I think that area is not leading in would be some form of white collar crime.January 3, 2007 at 11:35 AM #42608Steve BeeboParticipant
Most of Spring Valley is “below average”, but there are some areas that are OK, like near Avocado Blvd., just south of Highway 94. They call this area older Rancho San Diego, but it really isn’t. But it’s a lot nicer than the La Presa area below Dictionary Hills. Not a good area. Also the newer tract that Centex built several years ago off Sweetwater Springs Blvd. is OK, too. But the name “Spring Valley” does bring up a negative connotation in most people’s minds.January 3, 2007 at 11:39 AM #42609
Thanks for all the responses- this is the best board on the net! I guess I’m stuck looking for a place in North County!January 13, 2007 at 1:14 PM #43359AnonymousGuest
Spring Valley is not ALL bad, but parts of it are really going down the tubes. Casa de Oro is now gang city on the North side of Campo Rd, Sweetwater Springs Blvd Apartments are now overrun with gangs, and Bancroft drive, well, let’s just say they should call it “Sprung” Valley. Too bad…the rents used to be cheap and the people very nice.
