The US is on a steady decline in all aspects of society. There is no foreseeable correction. Buy Euro's or Swiss Franc's for your spare capital as bank's are not paying any interest of merit and the US Dollar is in a freefall. Do not hold onto US dollars. Without jobs first time buyer incentives, cash for clunkers and any stimulus packages are useless. In California which use to be the 5th largest economy in the world unto itself there are literally hundreds of thousands laying about not making payments for well over a year now. There is no mention in the news of this or when they will be evicted. With a severe winter onthe way I doubt they will be taking any action in the near future.
You may want a watch dog. If someone breaks down on the parkway close to your yard where do you think they will cut through? Not that it ever happened to us.
You need to consider between the 2 locations your commute to work, family obligations, school districts, recreation, neighborhoods,etc. Where will you be spending the most time? Is the backyard big enough for barbeques or is it too much lawn to mow? It is a very personal decision that only you can make.
If you're really asking us which is a better community, you probably know as Licensed Realtors we are not allowed to make that decision for you. Which area do you like best? Which area is more convenient for you? Have you driven by both areas at different times of the day to see the traffic patterns? This is a great time to buy a home, but no one can make a decision for you. We have a great free private home search website that we can offer you that may make your home search a little easier for you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can enroll you asap.

Congrats on your decision to buy. Now's a great time. If there's things about a house you don't like - you really don't like - then I would move on.
No one can really answer that question for you. It's a personal preference question.
Have you heard of Listingbook? Check it out - click the link to my website and take a look - incredible tool.
No one can make these decisions for you... I have a feeling you are asking which is a better community and that is something that Realtors cannot comment upon by law.
I can refer you to http://www.GailGladstone.com where you can click on school or community information and make some comparisons and a decision. REmember, this is of course an investment, but you are purchasing a home...you need to be happy.
