Still Loving It Here

Friday I got woken up by a thunderstorm.  Been a while since I have heard thunder and rain it was rather unexpected.  But since it was still raining I figured I might as well spend the day driving around.  So first over to San Tan.  It was a nice place, I really liked it, more a farming area, kinda reminded me of home.   It is a totally different atmosphere there, I kinda like how all the houses are not all attached together, but don't know where to ride out there.

Then on to Florence, it was kinda the same, with a prison in town, that was unexpected.  Not that there is a prison but I did not know where it was.  And then headed over to Casa Grande, I didn't mind it, but seems so far away from everything, as does Maricopa.  Kinda confuses me how Maricopa is not in Maricopa county though, lol.

On the way back north I drove around Queen Creek, I liked a lot of the houses there but they all seemed like they were in the city.  Although I did look up on the Realtor site a few more properties in Queen Creek that are in my price range and they don't seem to bad.  I have finally figured I need to look up all them on Google maps and see where they are cause no way I will find them otherwise and that way I can eliminate any that are right in the middle of the city.  I think I might have to actually talk to a Realtor and tell them what I am looking for rather than try to find something on my own.  I am just kinda hesitant to do so cause of not looking to buy right now and Neil thinking its crazy to buy a place.  But if I am gonna go ahead with it I will certainly talk to the Realtor after talking to my bank and seeing what kind of mortgage I can be approved for.  Then I ended up in Fountain Hills last night and it sure is a pretty place, but a little too fancy for me I think, but I am glad I went through it anyways.

Yesterday I headed up to Cave Creek.  I think I like it as much as or maybe more than Apache Junction.  Even in the rain.  I see the trails there are a little different, they are right through the neighborhoods.  And then I ended up on this road going to the Cross Spur Ranch Conservation area so I stopped there and walked on the trails for a couple hours.  Was kinda a nice place with lots of trails that can be ridden on as well.

Having trouble adding pics here, so I guess you will just have to imagine what it looks like :(

It is my understanding that a good portion of the san tan area is now a state park, which is where the little mountain is. There are a ton of riding trails there.

Do you still have the website for the realtor I told you about? Because we were searching there while living here in WY, she set up a portal for me. I told her what I was looking for (price, bedroom, acreage, area, etc) and only the places that fell in that criteria would come up on my portal. Then if anything new came up (and they did every day) I would get a message in my email. it was really cool and really made things easy for us. In the last few years I have learned how important it is to have a buyers agent, who can protect you from potentially dishonest sellers.

I'm glad you liked it there, and it sounds like you had some fun.

Sure is nice to look I bet, at least now when you do decide if you want to buy you will know where you like best
