This is awesome. - Joe

This home buying thing is getting realer. On the table:
1) A small townhome, but it has a big garage and four rooms upstairs and our monthly payment would be sooo low. Also in a quiet cul-de-sac and has a nicely upgraded (though small) kitchen. Downside is it is hot and price might be driven up by bidding war: http://www.zillow.com/homedet... - Laura Norvig
2) A real house, that backs up to a peaceful greenbelt. Gorgeous big living room. Funky old small kitchen. Inspection report shows termite/dry rot that needs to be investigated further. I wasn't drawn to it at first, but when I went back a second time it started calling to me. We would be bidding below asking due to all of the problems, but don't really know what we're getting into. http://www.zillow.com/homedet... - Laura Norvig
Tough decision. Good luck! - Anne Bouey
3) A soulless, but newish, comfortable place. No real yard, but nothing to fix up. Only three bedrooms. Big garage. http://www.zillow.com/homedet... - Laura Norvig
The third one is surprisingly soulless inside, considering how cute it is outside. I like the townhouse (1). - Betsy
Doing some research and apparently termites are almost a given in California. The main question is has there been any structural damage. - Laura Norvig
64 Vista Verde is prolly my fav for long term living for only one reason water restrictions are gonna get severe AND you'll have HOA demanding you maintain green. your green area is miniscule! and because it's so small it'll be economical, likely, to put in fake grass. but the kitchen is puny, tho there is ample space to renovate. and the upstairs laundry give me pause personally. I'd rather schlep then deal with water intrusions. but overall you're gonna live in Watsonville. yay!! I love it up there. - Lnorigb
Good luck. We wouldn't even look at the third one for two reasons: 1. HOA. 2. Two-story. (But I guess all of your choices are two-story.) If you want a third reason: 3. HOA. - Walt Crawford
I think I've been watching Property Brothers too much. The fact that the one we love (#2) needs tons of work is not phasing me anymore. - Laura Norvig
Lnorigb, the HOA fees at that place include them caring for the front lawn, not us. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
I hate the upstairs laundry idea too. I'm actually used to doing laundry in the garage. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
This is going to be so stressful ... - Laura Norvig from iPhone
it is stressful. but nice that HOA maintains the front lawn. - Lnorigb

I don't think you're going to get the quality you're looking for in hangouts. What does twitch use? - Steve and 4 other people from Android
Steve, yeah it crashed after awhile. I don't think Wade cares that much about quality, but we really couldn't get it to work. - Laura Norvig
