Some houses in this community are bad and some are good. Recently, people have received letters from the government saying they have gotten complaints about there house not have a curb appeal and people don't take that as offensive they just change the problem. And when one person updates the rest feel the need to compete, but it is not aggressive its moderate so the houses are in good quality. Also, houses do not stay on the market for more then about a month. There are no abandoned houses or properties. The cost of living is high because of the great weather. Everyone always says your paying for the weather not for the cost of living, but the prices are good for middle class families. The east side of the community is relatively worst then the west side , but that is not saying much because both are not as bad as other neighboring cities.

The crime around this area is not bad nor good. We do have some gang violence for example, a guy got stabbed at a car wash and there was a shooting at a barber shop. To add, my neighbor got his car stolen. Also, this pass Christmas Eve my mom got her wallet stolen out of her car and one hour previous to the robbing i was getting things out the car. Before, these incidents crime was very low and nothing really ever happened, but everyone once in a while we will see a police officer pass thru checking to make sure everything seems okay.
People in this community live ling together. Fro example, my dad and his friends still live in the same house as neighbors and they still talk every week. Now i have played with there kids, so you could say each generation lives long and sees the next generation enjoy what they did. The community is very pet friendly almost every house has an animal especially a dog. Our neighborhood is very close we always goes to each other parties and we just have fun.
