Recently moved to Granada Hills to be closer to good schools and the ability to purchase a newer/larger home in a gated community. We feel extremely safe in the gated community, a rarity to find in L.A. County. Granada Hills definitely has a different high-end feel north of Rinaldi with multi-million dollar homes and large lots giving every home a more custom feel. We've noticed new construction in the hills, always a good sign. Younger, growing families are moving in as the first generation of north Granada Hills residents are starting to sell for the first time. We wish there were more restaurant options, but shopping is convenient and freeway access to the 405, 118, 5 freeways couldn't get any easier for those who commute.

Overall, Granada Hills living in Granada Hills has been okay. Not all, but many of the neighborhoods are affluent, and the local high school, Granada Hills Charter High School, is very good. However, the affluence of many people makes it difficult to build a strong community. Many people are too cocky and stuck up to speak with you, and some people are just really shady. This one guy on my street got arrested for tax fraud and he came home from jail to four luxury model cars parked in the driveway, even though he was the main breadwinner of the family. It has been pretty safe from what I can tell, even though you have the occasional pot smoker in residential areas. There are always convenience stores nearby, and many things are in close proximity to each other. Lately there have been more weirdos coming up to people's doors, but its much less than anyone should be worried about.
Area feels like it needs some kind of a spark. Having moved several times through out the san fernando valley, I have seen what different towns within the area have to offer. Granada Hills, feels like the type of area your grandparents are situated in and haven't moved for the last forty years. It has a small town feel to it but it also feels worn down and needs some kind of cosmetic help. Due to the fact that it is close to Los angeles and a very popular local university, Granada Hills is a hot spot for real estate. South of the 118 freeway homes are more frugal and affordable but north of the freeway is where the fancier and extremely larger homes can be located. Apartments and homes rent for very high monthly payments. It has a very diverse population but the majority of nationalities being Armenian, Korean and Salvadorean.
