Because the housing market has nosedived more than 50% expect this whole area is to be a ghetto. I am already seeing it on my street. I feel like I'm doing the right thing by letting my house deafult and move on to a better area with less $/month for a rental. Eventually, I need to escape out of CA - the economy is on life support, and Governor Brown is going to do a lot more slicing and dicing of the schools, healthcare, and welfare. I honestly don't see a silver lining at all in this economy. You haven't seen anything yet.

Being a 72 year old caucasian from the Northwest and having no feelings 'good-bad-or-ugly' regarding race, have been considering a move to the Menifee area with my 'white' family to enjoy the sun and lifestyle of southern Ca. have maybe re-considered after reading the comments on this page.
Be it Mexican, Black, Yellow, red, white or whatever race, the crime and drugs exist no matter where you live.
The community we now live have the same problems and issues. It's the community that will survive when the community works together to prevent and control the issues. Education being primary.
Racism is not the issue. Living and working together for a better life for our family's is the answer.

lmao..........
I love the racist white folks in here. Go ahead voice your opinion. It must be frustrating walking through Menifee knowing you would get you butt whooped talking all that smack. Anyways, some of the rants against minorities might be true. Like Ice Cube said it's the "Hood Mentality" . Some fo you move from L.A. or other dumps and come live in nice communities but you still want to blast your music, throw trash on the street and let your children run wild, this includes you "white trash".
I grew up in South Central L.A. and was there in the middle for the L.A. Riots. Menifee is "soft" to me and I spot a gang member a mile away. The key is to not be afraid to pick up the phone and call the cops. Don't be a punk when it comes time to make a move, if you see crime make the call. If you kid is in school "bullying" or starting fights discipline the clown. In other words be an adult and be a parent to your fake thug kid.

BTW, Menifee is also filled with Military Minorities who have done more for this country than some of you have. So yeah.........

Wow, I cant believe how much IGNORANT White Trash lives in Menifee... I am hispanic.... I came to live here, not because it was cheaper, but because I was trying to get away from big city life, and thought this would be a nice enough neighborhood to raise my children.... It just seemed so family friendly when I fist came here. I guess I was wrong, especially with all these racist bastards....The comment about the young girls who get pregnant being minorities.... Funny, but I work for the school district... Most seem to be white... I see a lot of dirty white trash, throwing garbage on the street, letting their YOUNG kids run around without supervision, and going to the stores all dirty and in pj's (classy)...
Never thought I'd be racist, or use the term "white trash", but this is just getting ridiculous for minorities to be blamed for Menifee's downfall... There's bad people in very race, including Caucasians... And sorry to say, but I've met some really bad white people here, some that are lazy and abuse the system, and live off of others' hard work...
**Just an FYI... To "allens" comment "They fail miserably in schools and bring down the system so although you the white people are paying taxes you must send your children to private schools as well to avoid the neegroes and spahneeesh animals." ... My daughter is gifted and very much advanced in school, and can probably read and spell much better than you. She is doing her school a favor by testing highly, and earning the school a better grade... And we pay our taxes, and since my husband surely earns way more than you, I'm sure we pay more. I feel sorry for ignorant people, who may treat my daughter like crap and look down on her, but when she grows up and uses her brains to contribute to society, maybe even to save lives, it's gonna bite them on the ass... I hope you wont be dying someday, and needing a black or hispanic to save your life.... Because I hope they look down at you, laugh, and walk away!
I just want to say thank you. I am stunned and in utter shock by some of the comments posted on here. I am completely disgusted. Thank you again.

It seems to me like "you are ingorant people" is the one who is the racist. To generalize any group like that indicates a racism.

People are people we all are the same in Gods eyes, some are raised ,with unknown parents who know no better our children are our future , but they must be told to have good manners, and everyone has a diffin way of raising their children, and some have diffin back grounds,It is the mom and dads place to give advise to their children how to live in peace with one another and to give them what and how to be a good citizen to every one, and not cause trouble in the law of our land , there are many hard working people. and American people make their own way of life in every walk of life we still have trouble makers they do not fear God, and how was you taught by your mom and dads.

Having live here for over eleven years I have watched the 'progress' of the area like everyone else.
There was a while just before the real estate baloon popped when the area was actually pretty nice. You had to have money to live here, which meant you had to have a decent job.
While having a beer last night at a local pub I over heard a guy saying he bought a 5 bedroom house here for only 120 thousand dollars because the folks selling were being foreclosed on, and they wanted to save their credit.
This guy made $14 per hour. He said the first thing he did was move in his sister and her kids, and his mom and dad.
This kind of thing has been going on now for the past three years, and the make up of the community is changing.
Many people bought here with little or no money down, paying flexible payments, some interest only, and most got nice homes. All were banking on their homes going up, not down in value. Many of those people are now and have been moving, leaving us with a ton of bank owned homes, selling very cheaply, with predictable results.
Those with a lot of money and good credit buy many of them up and wholesale prices for pennies on the dollar, and then with a little down, and good financing create a positive cash flow on their rentals. Of course the rental clients are not the same as the buying clients....
The rest of the story is predictable.
MENIFEE IS ON A DOWN HILL SLIDE. Wish it were different. But unfortunately, hundreds of communities in California over the past 50 years have seen the same thing happen.
What makes it so bad is that the new communities are so much better quality than the old one, but the pricing is way down, forcing the selling owners in the older sections to play right into the hands of the buyers.
Look for many many rentals, homeowners with wage earner jobs, and many multiple families living in single family homes. Look for further decreases in value of homes, and a long slow recovery for menifee. The best days of Menifee are over. And the smart ones are leaving now.
You sound like a bunch of arrogant snobs. Menifee is such a nice place to raise a family. It has wonderful parks and recreation programs. It also has lots of choices in shopping, a wonderful bus system, good schools, and the college. Not everyone in life is as privileged as those who are commenting about wage earners here. We had nice jobs until the crash eliminated them. We work hard at wage earning jobs now to make a living for our family. Maybe the young people you see walking around are looking for jobs. They are few and far between these days due to the economy. I wasn't aware that only rich snobs can live in Menifee. We have been here 3 years now and love it. Maybe you should leave since you just don't fit anymore. All snobs are welcome to leave.

Dumb ass posts, coming from a dumb ass Mexican where most small to major city in CA is messed up due to low wage workers,complaining about what the "white guy" does and it's getting very old. Look at your own community and clean up your own house first. You use the system and cannot do things the right way, instead whine and complain about crap you yourself has control of. Minorities people are whites in CA if you haven't paid attention and that trend will continue. The problem is, we have Mexicans, Filipinos, Vietnamese, Thai, and identify yourselves as separate yet live in AMERICAN soil. Not one of you people even considered that you are AMERICAN. That's why things will continue to slide and racial division will continue people will continue to blame the white racists. Look in the mirror the true racists maybe you. The trailer trash isn't just white people and there are racists of every color... don't pretend there aren't

It's ok for skin heads and white beggars to hang around grocery stores and laundry mats. One major wake up call. White people are the Minorities.

Good......... since whites are the minorities, can we get free college education, move to the front of the employment line, and have all the other goodies handed to us like they have to all other minorities (majorities) up till now?????
It's about time we get preferential treatment. I'll gladly take that and promise to never utter another negative word on how we pay taxes and work hard while others come into this country and learn rather quickly how to milk the system instead of contribute to it.
I've been on the sidelines for years, watching this country go down the toilet with all the injustices; and I don't mean racist attitudes. I mean people not only living off the system, but bragging to everyone how smart they are and how stupid us "americans" are for paying taxes, trying be fiscally and morally responsible to this country.

Lately I think it has! Yesterday as I was driving back home from Walgreen, I was coming down McCall over off-ramp & I saw a woman, maybe in her 20s; she was totally dressed like a HOOKER!! Black tight mini skirt, skimpy top, heels & cheesy jewelry hanging around her neck. There is NO WAY she wasn't. She was the typical classic prostitute. Lol

its seem like there are a lot of bias peoples in certain areas god made the earth for all man and women of all colors don't judge the book until you read it.Menifee seem to me to be a wonderful area to live in. Crime has it way venturing into rich and poor neighborhoods.The way to reduce it is know your neighbors report suspicious activities create community awareness bulletins.You are the polices eyes and ears. Buy a dog to help protect your home don't let crime beat you you beat crime. Menifee is family friendly we all want hard working peoples living around us no matter how much they make just because someone make 14.00 an hr. don't mean he is a bad person to me he a productive individual taking care of his or her family. don't judge what you can not see meaning he bank account he just might be a multi millionaire just loving life and peoples not money or your so call stature of life.Go Menifee a nice place to live.

Wow! You've summed it up. Many Menifee residents are trailer trash with no class! And the residents living in small to mid size track homes in Menifee are no different. The problem with Menifee is a class issue, not a culture/race one, but as long as that small low class segment within Menifee continues to promote their classless attitude as the "Menifee way", and continues to focus on race and culture differences, instead of the real problems which is a class problem, they will not band together as a cohesive community, and the “lower class people” they claim are moving in the area will continue to control their city and image. Some Menifee residents pretend to be middle class but are no better than those low class criminals they claim are just now moving in the area. Housing was cheaper in Menifee before the housing boom, not more expensive. During the boom, they were overpriced! Now, they are back to those pre boom realistic worthiness levels. Therefore, the people moving in today paid the same, if not more for their homes than those who bought 10-20 years ago. Menifee is a working class city as many cities and towns are in Riverside County. Of all the cities Riverside County offers, Menifee is not a real city that offers anything for upper - middle, or executive class people.
It's laughable that with the dusty, smelly, poorly designed "new" strip mall, and lack of proper traffic infrastructure, Menifee really thought they could ever reach Temecula or Murrieta's city status. I’ll avoid the crime, bad attitudes, and sub- standard service I've received in Menifee, and will continue to shop in Temecula and Murrieta.
You are an idiot and a Terrible Snob!

I don't think you're a snob when you put your hard earned money towards purchasing a home, pay outrageous property taxes,(im not sure why) and then you see the surrounding areas deteriorating. I think Menifee attracted a variety of people from everywhere, including LA, Orange County, San Diego, etc. I'm sure most who post on here just want to see the city maintain a healthy and vibrant community atmosphere. Maybe some are a little disappointed with some elements recently, however, I think that's prevalent everywhere these days. I just hope Menifee expands and grows into a place that everyone will want to move to instead of move away from.
