Announcing....

Through a series of miracles (literally) we FINALLY found a house and in a place we had actually never even considered!! Yayayayayayay! Bank owned, KILLER deal, 6 offers in two days and the highest was $35K higher than ours and we STILL won. It's an awesome story actually.

ANYWAY! AFTER we offered we realized more and more awesome things about the city and neighborhood. I even broke down and cried as I was learning. Anyone wanna guess where it is??? Here are some clues and some of the things I found out after the fact...
  1. In 2007 Newsweek voted this city the safest city in the country
  2. This city is the largest master planned community in the country
  3. The high school is in the top 2.5% in the country
  4. You CANNOT walk to the beach :( but it's still close (relatively)
  5. The average high in August is low 80s
  6. The neighborhood has a big park and backs up to a reserve with trails
  7. There is a lake across the street from the neighborhood that we have HOA access to
  8. Around the corner is a youth athletic center where they have all the t-ball games, etc

Any guesses????????



P.S. This is NOT our house....but it IS a Tudor style and this house is my inspiration. Pics to come.

Yay that you got a house. It can't be in CA can it since it is one of the safest cities in the US:) I know that not all of CA is dangerous. I can't wait to see pictures. Congrats!
