As for the acronyms, I see someone has already given them to you.
Good luck with your home search!
You will be happy to hear that the new MLS system we are switching to this month does away with all these difficult acronyms and simply states the descriptions in the form of whole words.
Please let me know if you need help with any other abbreviations before then, I keep a list handy of all the acronyms and what they mean.
Don't feel bad, a lot of times I have to look up ones I haven't seen in awhile. This new MLS is a huge time saver and way better for consumers (tell your agent to start using it instead of Paragon, you'll thank me later).
As for the food, I know what you mean. I lived in Los Angeles for 8 years then returned to rural PA where I grew up...the best Mexican I could find was Taco Bell. I craved real Mexican food for 3 years before my wife and I started looking for a new place to live. In our pros and cons list of places to live "good authentic Mexican food" was actually an entry.
I hopw your search goes well and you find the perfect house.
