This weekend we are focusing on inland cities of South Orange County. Cities that are not adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. When you move away from the coastline, properties tend to become more affordable: that is not always the case, but it is a general rule of thumb. With rates remaining at historical lows, South Orange County remains a great opportunity, the inventory remains fairly high, which would make it more of a buyer’s market. This week we are targeting homes which we would consider to be “Orange County Open Houses Best Buy’s.”
The city’s we are highlighting this week are Aliso Viejo, Coto De Caza, Costa Mesa and Rancho Santa Margarita. Aliso Viejo is a master-planned community that is one of the newest addition to Orange County’s cities and consists of semi-custom tract homes, condominiums and townhouses. Coto De Caza is basically split up into two “sub-communities” the north and south. The north are consists of sprawling equestrian properties, mansions and custom-built homes, the south area is comprised of luxury semi-custom built homes, with many found alongside the golf course. Rancho Santa Margarita is a family-friendly city which has a man-made lake and a golf course: it is also largely a master-planned community and located on the eastern edge of Orange County. Costa Mesa is one of Orange County’s oldest and the majority of the homes have a Spanish-style or beach cottage architectural design. Costa Mesa has one of the highest concentrations of single-level homes for sale that you will find anywhere in Orange County.
