Buying homes in an area you are not familiar with can be very frustrating not knowing what is the best areas to live that fit your needs. The location of a home is extremely important.
Weather is the very important criteria to consider. If you do like hotter weather you may want to look at the North County Cities. If you like cooler weather you will want to look at the coastal areas such Morro Bay Homes or Pismo Beach Homes. You may not like hot or cold weather, so you want to look at Arroyo Grande or Nipomo Homes.
Most of the Central Coast is safe, but your tolerance for safety can change based on your age, if you have a family or simply because you want to feel as safe as possible when you step out of your home to pick up your mail.

Unless you are paying cash for a home, you will need a honest local lender. There are several big internet companies the will state they have the lowest rates, but the truth is all lenders have the same rates on any given day.
