our family checked out this community this weekend. You get a lot of nice amenities with your house - pool, clubhouse, lake. But the surrounding area to the west didn't look so good. This is in the city of Romoland. I had never heard of it before. The neighborhood we are looking at would be on the edge of the neighborhood. Does anyone know about Romoland? Is there a lot of crime? Have you heard good things about the lake??? I would appreciate the feedback. Thank you.

I dont know much about Romoland, but to the west is Sun City. I think crime is little compared to other growing cities. Of course, we still get the transients, graffiti..etc..but overall its okay. I know they are trying to do improvements on McCall Blvd by tearing down the vacant buildings. Hope that helps.

Just bought in the Heritage Lake area. I met some of the families closing on their houses in the area and had similar backgrounds to me. From the OC in heart, couldn't afford to buy in the OC (not really sure who can), sick of paying rent, accustomed to the amenities, etc... Regardless of what you hear about Romoland, the Heritage Lake area is very south end of Romoland. The community will become what we make it. New communities just south on the 215 will also bring OC transplants. I think it's wise to get in now. Builder incentives are nice right now too! We decided to go with Mystic Point by Lennar... sounds like the same area you were looking? Beware however, if you do decide to purchase in Romoland, no on ewill no where it is when you tell them.

Hello Janette
I can help get you the information you need for Romoland as well as Heritage. Also if you are interested in purchasing in Hertiage, I can be of assistance because I am a REALTOR and sometimes when a REALTOR, that is not affiliated with Heritage or other new homes, represents you the buyer, you basically can get a better deal and ammenities. If you are still interested in purchasing a home new or old, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Heritage Lake is a nice development, but falls within an unicorporated area. Heritage Lake in NOT within the proposed map for Menifee Valley city incorporation. I'd think local services would be better met in this new city rather than the Riverside County board.

I live in romoland at heritage Lake I bought a home here a few months ago. I love it, it is very quiet and the amenities are great, the splash park is a favorite for my kids, the new school that is being built is so convenient and state of the art and only a hop skip and a jump away from all the homes right accross the lake next to the park. romoland that is about 2 miles away is a bit on the older side but quiet, some of the neighbor have their kids at the school on that side and they said it is very quiet but will be moving to the new school this fall sine the elementary school is being converted to a middle school.

Does anyone know if there is any bad element that comes from perris to cause problems in romoland or sun city? Are there any gangs? I have heard that Perris has gone down in the last few years and they are having trouble with gangs and crime.

Thanks Marta, that is good to know. Are any of the houses being rented or is it mainly owner occupied? I was told to watch out for that in the inland empire. Which neighborhood did you buy in? We are looking at Mystic Point.

has anyone heard about the there being problems with the levy behind the lake at heritage lake? my uncle said that he read in the paper that it has some cracks in it. The real estate lady said that it could withstand an 8.5 earthquake. Not sure what to believe.

We just bought a house in the Mystic Point development and we LOVE it! We had to get out of OC if we were ever going to break the overpriced rent cycle. We have three girls and they like their new school and LOVE the neighborhood and the pool / splash park. All of our neighbors are awesome! We are very very happy with our decision.

I know what you mean about the surrounding areas, but I have not noticed any problems yet, and like the other person said, the community will be what we make of it.

In regards to the levy, I do not know of any problems, and all of the paperwork and insurance stuff said that we are NOT in a flood zone.

I'm looking forward to meeting more of my neighbors!

I'd say the biggest difference in your quality of life in any given neighborhood is the owner occupied to renter ratio. Many investors bought into my community and their renters don't have the same pride of up keep (yard, trash, etiquette (bbqs in driveway)) as an individual who's struggling to make mortage payments and concerned about future value to his/her home and the neighborhood.

O purchased in the Avalon, on my block almost all the homes are owner occupied expect 2, but 1 is lease with option to buy, on my block there are maybe 6 homes with families, the other are retirees and ocassionally have grand kids visit on the weekends, I love it here, my kids love it and a cul-de-sac is your best bet, no traffice and extra wide streets.

What I like about the Heritage Lakes area is that the new schools are traditional. I don't have to stress over trying to get my kids ont he same track so my family and I can have a decent vacation time. MY older son will be going to Heritage High.

Check the riverside county sex offenders list...... there are over 25 registered sex offenders living across the way way in ONE house on briggs road. My advice... stay in the OC

It is very true there are 2 (Two) sex offenders on Briggs, that is well over 5 miles away. The OC and L.A. is more congested with residents which means Sex offenders surround every single residence in those location, take a look at familywatchdog.com type in any OC city, Anaheim, Orange, Stanton, Garden Grove, Newport, and you will see the results it is frightening. This is why we left L.A. and some friends left the OC, to much traffic, people, small street, and totally overpriced homes. I love heritage lake, the people, the amenities and when you have kids it is awewome. We've had absolutely no problems, the neighbor that have been here for over 1 years have had no problem, no robberies, no crimes its great here.

Sex offenders thrive where there are kids, and there are more sex offenders in OC/LA than there are in in the Heritage Valley.

That whole Heritage Valley is really going to become a bustling city someday, mainly because it branches off of the I-215, and Hwy 74 runs right through it to Hemet. I can forsee a new city there, encompassing Romoland, Homeland, and Winchester.

The only thing I don't like about Heritage Valley right now, is that there is an awful lot of dust blowing through there, simply because there's an awful lot of open land.

Oh, and to all you folks just now moving into Heritage Lakes & Heritage Valley, you might want to do some reading up on the topic of sludge. Here is a Google search for sludge menifee...

http://www.google.com/search...

All of the farm fields in Menifee, Winchester, Romoland, Homeland, have been fertilized with sludge, which is treated human feces. That stuff used to get shipped here from OC. That entire Heritage Lakes development sits on a farm field where human excrement was used to grow crops.
