Driving through Phoenix neighborhoods – virtually

Waterfront townhouse at Coral ReefGetting to know waterfront neighborhoods and determining lot sizes

We all know that pictures of a house for sale may allow you to fall in love with a house, but what does the lakefront neighborhood look like? And those wide angle pictures may lead you to believe that the backyard is almost 1/2 an acre on a waterfront lot, but how large is it really?  Read on to become an informed buyer, and drive through the neighborhood, even from thousands of miles away.
