Wow!! I’ve been gone a week and so much breaking news has happened on piggy.com
23109 is back!! and I have to give him credit for showing up. For those who don’t know 23109 is one of the OG Temecula posters. I’ve referenced you a few times (nicely) in the last 2 months, and its good to hear from you and see that you are humble and happy. It seems like you have a good attitude and job so thats great. Remember my posts in the past about your sitting on the fence and having OCD about housing.. we shared a few laughs. I still rent in Harveston too. Been here almost 3 years now. Had my first baby here (no, not in the house) and now she’s over a year old. Things are still working out, and I figure I might start looking to buy in a year or so. Who knows, I haven’t ruled out another state or area.
I have to agree with others that I wouldn’t want to live next to the casino for reasons mentioned above. I have lived here since Pechanga was a small tent and had $1.99 steak and eggs after midnight. I liked it better that way. I guess I kinda feel like the general Morgan Hill/Red Hawk/Wolf Creek fanboy movement here led by TG-epedia is a bit exaggerated and that some onlookers might be missing out on the remaining nice areas of Temecula. I fully respect TG(very sharp and puts in a ton of research), but there are still great areas north of 79 south. Some of French Valley isn’t as bad as many here make it sound. They have HOAs there too. Spencer’s Crossing looks like it will be well planned, and have many amenities, and is mainly Lennar, very similar to Harveston, and it isn’t way out in Winchester. Traffic on winchester is no worse than that of 79 south (probably closer to the mall/Costco/most of the good dining anyways) and I’d take a secure jail to a drunk spewing/sin magnet casino any day.
I still would advise against commuting to SD from Temecula, especially with a fed mandated hyper inflation we will see one day. Besides, live where you work, so you can spend more time with your family. This more important to me than sqftage anyways. Time is money or better.
One thing we all seem to agree on is that prices will fall further.
HappyHouseHunting .. I think I know your ex.. and I have to say that Meadowview is my favorite “reasonable” place to live in all of Temecula. I could go on, but lets keep it not so trendy.
