First time buyers in North CountyJust a quick question. Spoke with a lender and explained that we make roughly 38,000 annually and find that it may be more prudent to buy than rent. We have 1 car payment, no children, no other loans out besides credit cards that are paid monthly.When we spoke with the lender she said we'd never find anything under 200,000 in San Diego/Riverside counties, I see a lot of homes/duplex/condos under this price range. What gives? are the #s on Zillow not accurate?What am I looking on spending on a 2 bed/1 bath in Escondido realistically?September 08 2013 - San Diego00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
