Located in the North Inland section of the San Diego metro area is the perfectly well thought out community called 4S Ranch.  This upscale community boasts a strong demand from home buyers throughout the metro area.  As one of five communities that feature homes built with Shelter in Place construction, many luxury buyers strongly consider 4S Ranch because of its safety from the common wildfires that pop up throughout this part of the country.  In fact, in 2007, when many homes in southern California were ravaged by wildfire, not one home in 4S Ranch was consumed by fire.
