If it is in the MC Sweeney ranch (spl?)do your research. The property taxes are like 12k/year. The builder went under and the proposed clubhouse and enmities are a bust. If it's in the surrounding (diamond valley) area, that's not so bad, but rural. I assume you got a great price on a house, and for what you paid is probably a good deal. Hemet in itself has gone down hill fast in the last 10 years, and in my opinion is borderline ghetto. But, you would be in the county. There's a middle school close (I forgot the name), and a high school (West Valley). West Valley started out bad, but has improved and is turning out to be a good school. The trailer park across from the old DMV is not a place for your kids to be hanging out. Also, the loading docks behind the shopping center on the north/east of stetson and state sometimes attracts an element. Other than that, that's not a bad area. Hope that helps.

Hemet is far from being a ghetto.The previous poster is a little paranoid. Every town has a good part and a bad part of town.I live close to the SuperWalmart that's near West Valley High.I have had two kids attend that school without a problem. and the park near there is safe.But I do warn you,once you move to this town it is very hard to get out because the housing and prices for most necessities are cheap here.The city is so much bigger then the two places the previous poster mentioned.

Move to Menifee or Murrieta. Hemet is a town that has alot of drugs,drug dealers, child molesters and people hiding from the law.
Before anyone buys a home here I would recommend doing research first. It doesn't matter where you live here because crime is all over this town. Like the saying goes" you can pick your home but can't pick your neighbors".
Good luck!!

Unfortunately, some respondants have a "Glass half empty attitude". Although the deomgraphics have changed dramatically over the past 30 years, Hemet remains a safe place to live and raise a family. Yes, there are "Bad" areas, but every city has their version of the same. In my opinion, the problem begins when people fail to get to know their neighbors and establish a network of people that they can trust and who will look out for them. I would encourage you to meet your neighbors and visit the schools in order to get a better grasp of what's really going on out there. Good luck!

Hemet USED to be a nice place.... I sure
has changed since the 90's...... and not for
the better, I suppose alot of cities are in the
same shape.

Harmony Elementary is a very nice school and students from this area will go to Diamond Valley Middle which is also a good school. As a parent you have done a fine job in picking a home that is in a good school district. You seem like a parent that will be involced in your childs life so the rest will fall in place.

I don't think your kids want to grow up here. I hate my parents for raising me in Hemet.
And you don't want your kids going to school with a bunch of pot heads, do you?

Blake your out of your element. You wouldn't know the first thing about being a Parent and having to worry about the mortgage and putting food on the table. YOU are the typical pain in the ass whiney teenager who will blame his Parents for his poor choices he made for the rest of his life. Grow up dumbass.

YOU ARE JUST PARANOID!!! IM SORRY YOU HAD TO MOVE TO GOD-KNOWS-WHERE ARIZONA (probably cause you couldn't afford to live here and foreclosed like everyone else who moves to the TX/AZ area).And you like a ghost town. How old are you? Im guessing around 60, at least Anyway this town isn't bad at all, you obviously never seen real "ghetto".

Don't do it. Hemet is borderline ghetto. Since my arrival 5 years ago, my house has burned down (thanks to someone mowing a field), and I have witnessed the police chase people with guns drawn up my street at least twice a year. My street is a dead-end, and the suspects are usually caught. Now I am unable to sell and we are stuck here till the economy improves. Do yourself a favor and buy in Temecula.

I was born in Brea in 1981 and my family moved to Hemet in 1986. For me and my family Hemet was a great place to grow up. But from what my family and family friends tell me, it has gone way down since I left for college in 1999. Since my graduation from college I've moved back to the OC area and have been back to visit my Hemet roots, and at first glance there are a lot more homeless people wandering the streets. I've also noticed more businesses have left town only to be replaced by dollar trees and penny stores. I'm definitely not an authority on "how things are" in the town since I haven't lived there in over 12 years. But from what my people tell me and from what I see, it's not the comfortable peaceful place I remember growing up. And this is coming from living in Pomona and on the edge of Santa Ana where there is an obvious problem with crime. Going back to Hemet felt less comfortable than that. But if this doesn’t sway your opinion either way, consider this, unless you plan on practicing medicine, law, or becoming a teacher, there is virtually no opportunity. Unless you’re looking for a blue-collar job.

Even teaching in Hemet and the local area is not a safe bet for a long-term, secure job. Teachers are often laid off every year or two, and left looking for teaching positions outside of the area. Even experienced teachers, with full credentials, excellent references, and masters degrees have to look elsewhere.
