Hello, I am drawing walls with the location line being exterior core face. The problem is I want the walls to snap to the core face when I am drawing new walls to join them, it currently only lets me snap to the center of the wall or the exterior. The whole point of this is to create an efficient wood frame for a house,

I'm not having any problems snapping to the different layers of a wall.  What version of Revit are you using, do you have all of the updates installed?

Revit 2014, I did realize that my detail level wasn't set to medium or fine, changing that allowed me to draw from different parts of the wall. I still have one issue with this problem. I have an 45 degree angled corner on the first floor. Because I am doing an efficient frame I need to model the first floor before the foundation walls. When I go to make the foundation walls using the first floor as an underlay I cannot snap to the intersection where the two exterior cores meet  on the first floor, though I can snap to the exterior core boundries on 90 degree angle corners.

You don't need to snap to the intersection.  Align to the proper faces.
