Living in West Puente Valley, Cailfornia does pose some challenges for my family and I. There are also some pros to living here. You really need to consider what it most important if you are considering moving to West Puente.

The hardship that currently faces by family is that the cost of living is so outrageous here. Our current rent is outrageous as we are paying more than fifteen hundred dollars for a two-bedroom apartment and with our current income, it is impossible to qualify to buy a house. The cost of living in this area is in no way comparable to the average income of West Puente, California. Those living in this community seem to get by financially, but many of us feel like we are in a rut.

Now that leads me to the tell you about the best areas in West Puente Valley, California and that is that the overall community atmosphere is wonderful. Although this area is considered urban, we feel safe here and our days and nights are overall peaceful. The schools here also provide a good education, so if you have children that is a positive.
