Re: Poll: How hot are you?

Is it nice there? Laurence was going on about how terrific a place it is, with fairly reasonable real estate costs (for the area).

Any +/- before I have to take a drive down there and have a look?

I'm a little sick of 110 degree summer days, although the 70 degree one we're having now is pretty decent.

It really is a nice place. But, like any place it has its ups and downs.

IMO the +'s: Nice terrain, hilly and wooded; opportunities to buy large lots; quiet; access to lots of good San Diego stuff (beaches, zoo, sports stuff, parks, etc.); great weather.

Possible -'s: Isolated compared to other SD bedroom communities (since you're not concerned w/ commuting this isn't as big a deal); some summer heat since it's inland (which I actually kind of enjoy); some of that rural bubba culture (mullets and meth); when you do drive somewhere else in the area you usually have to drive on an overcrowded highway or freeway (Hwy 76 is scenic but it can get really congested).

I live in a coastal suburb but I spend time out there visiting friends. Sometimes it's nice to get out of subdivision life and get out to the more open spaces inland.

Here's a little real estate info for the area (based on Dec 06 home sales):

Fallbrook, CA 92028
Median resale SFR: $545,250
Median new SFR: $1,080,000
Median for all SFRs and condos: $546,000

Bonsall, CA 92003
Resale SFR: $692,000
New SFR: $965,000
All: $668,000

Carlsbad, CA 92009 (a popular coastal suburban zip code, just for comparison):
Resale SFR: $814,500
New SFR: $1,095,000
All: $809,000

All things considered, Fallbrook and Bonsall are worth a look.

Re: Poll: How hot are you?

Hey, you won't believe me, but trust califdreamer??

The high new home cost in Fallbrook and Bonzall is due to the preponderance of mini-ranches. People with money are moving out there and demanding 4000 sq. foot ranchettes.

Come on down! My 'hood is a short drive away and we can BBQ and grow our mullets!

Re: Poll: How hot are you?

What about Temecula and Murrieta? I hear that prices are starting to drop, smog levels are low during the summer, and there's more infrastucture than when I was there 20 years ago.

He's trying to leave behind the 120 degree heat!! A day trip to the beach is not realistic from there, compared to Fallbrook, which is right behind Oceanside and Carlsbad. It takes 30 minutes at least to get to the 78/15 interchange from Temecula, then you have another 30 minutes to the beach.

The whole region sounds like Fontana to me. I think I'll wait for La Jolla to get cheap.

Re: Poll: How hot are you?

Whoa.

17 degrees right now in Missouri doesn't seem so bad if those RE prices are the norm. The difference(MO/CA) could fund a lot of winter get aways to warmer climes.

heh heh heh heh heh

Even though there is some mullet culture in Fallbrook I wouldn't lump it in with the Inland Empire towns north of Temecula. Parts of Temecula are pretty nice but as Laurence mentioned it's just too far from the beach. Areas north of Temecula are distinctly different from Fallbrook as I see it. Fallbrook is not as hot, smoggy, congested and eerily generic as the string of towns in SW Riverside County (Murrieta, Hemet, Corona, Perris, etc.)

Re: Poll: How hot are you?

Hey, that thread Wab read has some code in there. Bottom line, there was some white power types in Fallbrook, they gave up as the town became more integrated, can't stand them Mex-hi-Cans...

I live where there is no city police force as well, County Sherriff only. They responded to my one call in minutes and handled the situation very well. I'm in San Marcos, though, so being closer to the epicenter may help.

Martha,
Yesterday was positively balmy in the 50s here in Colorado! Today the same. Sorry we had to send the artic freeze train east but everyone here was really getting grumpy about the weather. We had to do SOMETHING!

Just a balmy -38C here, fortunately no wind. I like it better in F, only -36.

Time to put on my shorts and go out to play snow volley-ball.

I don't know about Kumquat, who probably is in Canada, but in Embarrass Minnesota it was 42 below last night.

Cold will continue until sometime next week.
