We actually did the opposite of Nyxie - were looking at Keene Ranch vs. Bell Mountain and ultimately picked Bell Mountain.

This was the only neighborhood we found where we could have horse property in a larger-lot community, quick freeway access, and really good internet + phone connection (important for us to be able to work). We found that Keene Ranch had pretty poor connectivity and was quite farther to get to the freeway.

We actually love that water is centralized (pumped from multiple aquifers, so no worries about well maintenance or well drying out).

Haven't had any issues w/ HOA - if anything, the Design Committee has been really responsive and has approved all of our enhancements. Love our neighbors, the views, and miles of trails!

Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a former realtor, any licensed realtor will tell you the size of the home has nothing to do with how much care it will need. Maintenance is the responsibility of the owner and yes there are small homes that are well maintained AND there are small homes that need major renovations and require $$$$. The same holds true for large homes - some owners maintain them really well and other owners don't care and don't spend a penny on their house.

If you cannot visit homes in person, you should NOT be buying a home in the first place. You should NEVER rely on pictures from listings. Realtors hire professional photographers who use wide lens and can alter pictures slightly than what it looks like in person. Online photos make rooms appear larger, pictures don't capture any hidden defects or anomalies; realtors do tell photographers what angles or how to make a room look better than it really is; etc. Therefore, you are accepting online listing photos which can be misleading and not telling you the truth.

The only way to look at homes that you plan to buy - is in person (if not yourself, then a family member, friend, etc.). Otherwise, don't buy at all.
