I wanted to type more but I went over the limit. I was also curious if anyone has had experience living and purchasing homes through Meritage Homes and/or CalAtlantic Homes as well. We are impressed with what we have seen online as far as the homes look, it's what we are truly looking for. I've seen mixed reviews online about both and would appreciate any honest feedback on the two. Thank you!!... more

You may not get a house for that payment but there are condos and townhomes in that possible payment range.
