Hi There:

The other agents who have answered already gave you names of great communities.
Temecula has wonderful school districts, great shopping and many super family-oriented communities.

There is one thing I want to tell you about, which is Mello Roos. If you have not bought a home in this area before, be sure to ask your agent about this term. Many young couples thought they could afford a home based on its list price, only to find out that their tax base was higher than expected.

Mello Roos is not a "bad" thing. It's one of the reasons those communities are so lovely.
You just need to be aware up front whether you would be buying in a community that has special assessments and/or Mello Roos.

Temecula's a great place. Good luck, and let me know if I can help!

My wife and I have lived in Paseo Del Sol for 6 years now and we always have events and hang with our neighbors....from Casino Nights, Easter Egg Hunts, Holiday Parties....it's a great place to live. It really depends on your budget on which community would be best for you. Best of luck and let me know if you have any questions.

You just described what my neighborhood is like. I'm in Paseo Del Sol. I think there is a home for sale in our cul-de-sac.....nicest home on the block I think.

You should check out the lender credit and low rates we are giving buyers right now.......crazy.

Paseo Del Sol, Paloma Del Sol and Temeku Hills have some very family oriented neighborhoods (lots of kids, parks, cul-de-sac's, driveway BBQ's on holiday's, etc...). You can't go wrong with those neighborhoods.

I will encourage you to check the school district and take under conciderationthe schools you want for your kids. Then check the area around it most families like to live close to the schools their children go to...therefore around a good school you'll be able to find plenty of kids and fun.

Harveston has tons of kids and lots of younger families...it's easy to meet people there with all the parks and bike paths and lake.....Crowne Hill is another area with lots of families and parks....and Paseo and Paloma Del Sol has pools, parks paths and lots of families....

Good Luck and enjoy! Jim

It's best to narrow your choices by selecting your highest wants. Neighborhoods throughout Murrieta and Temecula have terrific advantages for you. Also narrow your scope of Realtors and Lenders by specialty so you get their full attention as well.
Selecting neighborhood specialists is key to your search. I have excellent Realtors who fit this model that specialize in buyers needs. Please let me know if I can help.

Temeku Hills is a great place for kids. It has a club house with tons of activities and a pool, tennis courts, etc. It also has a golf course. The taxes are low too. I live there and love it.
