Hi, Apugal, great question and to tell you the truth, both areas are beautiful and have fantastic homes and the others wrote very valid points. Eureka Springs would be quieter, and have nicer looking community areas and sidewalks because of the HOAs. I also would like to note that of the homes I have seen in both areas, Eureka Springs tends to have a bit more space in the backyard. If you would like I would love to show you both communities and am available anytime to do so. Please contact me at (760) 294-3876 or Have a fantastic day and weekend. ... more

Your Question is posed as if the home is a Rental? Is that what your asking? Are you looking for a Rental that will accept a large, well behaved dog?

The property on 11th is listed for sale in the MLS with a Status of Contingent.

If I can help, please call/email/text me.

Thank You for using Trulia,
Realtor Ricki

I have lived at the apartments at the corner of Hale and 9th. The smell was bad, and this location is NOT even too close.

For some reason, this facility tends to really stink (No pun intended :). I had a house in escrow for one of my clients off of Guilder Glen, another area which is not directly adjacent to the treatment facility, however the smell was still very bad.

There is a special smell disclosure which you will/would have to sign off on to purchase one of the properties which are very close-but most of the affected properties which will still will have an odor do NOT have this disclosure to sign off on.

Another important thing to remember is that the smell is by far the worst in the summer. For some reason, the heat really turns up the odor. My wife and I really hated it. Make sure you work with an agent who knows these things... hint hint....

Traffic noise in the area you are discussing is a minimum as this is a development at the end of the street. You don't have any traffic coming and going other than residents and guests. If you have a house right next to Hidden Trails, you may get some moderate traffic, but not much. I hope this helps you. You selected a nice area with pride of ownership seen in most of the homes.

Take care,

Bradley Beaman

Hi Krissy,
South Escondido, zip 92025 is popular with families who want their kids to attend LR Green. Larger lots and homes make it more expensive than the same home on the north side. There are lots of great neighborhoods around Escondido though. I disagree with the comment about Hidden Meadows. It's a 4 lane road, but is a lifestyle more centered around golf and retirement. However, lots of families live there because it's just a few minutes from the freeway yet totally quiet. I'd love to show you around and sift through the many choices available.

Finding the dry rot is actually a good thing because it is only going to get worse over time. We don't have the report to view, but if you think the estimate is high, get a second opinion. Ask another termite company to do an inspection and they will usually do so for free to try to get the business. Sprinklers spraying the deck for 3 years can cause extensive damage even to brand new wood. Sounds to me that the inspector simply uncovered the damage due to dryrot more than causing damage to good wood. I understand it wasn't visible to you, but an experienced termite inspector would suspect it was there. Sprinklers spraying on wood for extended periods of time leave tell-tale signs. If you are planning to rent the house, repairing it ahead of time is a good idea. What if the tenant or their child fell through the deck due to the damage? A little preventive maintenance can prevent an expensive lawsuit. Talk with your realtor to understand why they did it and make sure you authorize any future inspections. Even if you were planning to sell your home, it would become an issue later as others have suggested. Hope this helps. ... more
