    Housing: Each neighborhood has pretty different types of homes and rates of foreclosures.
    • 3
    Community: There's not much sense of community. I'd say it's pretty pet friendly because there are lots of lakes to walk dogs around and my cat has never had any problems going in and out of the house.
    • 3
    Crime & Safety: Crime is becoming more of a problem but it's not terrible. I feel safe walking around.
    • 3
    Crime & Safety: The area in which I live does not have a lot of crime. We actually have a policeman in our neighborhood (he drives an undercover cop car so most people don't know he is a cop)
    • 3
    Overall Experience: I am not thrilled about living in the over heated desert. I want to be someplace where there is more green and rain
