As promised, here is my take on the house we viewed.
Great landscaping, backyard, pool, RV parking... everything Cory wants :]
Floor plan was awkward, no formal dining room, upstair rooms (including master) share a bathroom, and while the cabinets were brand new, the kitchen still needed some sprucing up.
We decided to put in an offer since the location is great: off Victoria and Washington by the orange groves. It is a short sale, so it could and probably will take forever. But, of course, we are still actively looking since we have plenty of time.
Ideally, I would love to transport one of the new Murrieta homes interior into this house. That would be perfect.. But it is our first house, so we really should get a fixerupper and put in the hard work.
