Quantcast Affordable Orange County Real Estate: 6 Neighborhoods Under $600,000
Affordable Orange County Real Estate: 6 Neighborhoods Under $600,000

With a median home price of about $630,000, Orange County real estate is among the priciest in the country. Luckily, you can find less expensive areas to live if you know where to look. Here are six of the most affordable neighborhoods in Orange County, with home values under $600,000:

1. Anaheim

Median home price: $525,800

Home to Disneyland Resort and the Anaheim Convention Center, the city of Anaheim has many other attractive amenities, such as public transportation access, walkable apartment and condo communities, as well as many dining and entertainment options. For those with a taste for architectural character, you can choose from many early-20th-century homes in the city’s historic downtown area and many midcentury ranch-style homes throughout the city.

2. Fullerton

Median home price: $592,300

Fullerton boasts a thriving downtown nightlife scene, with bars, restaurants, cafes and live music, and is conveniently located near the city’s five local colleges. Beyond the downtown area, you’ll find many established neighborhoods, quality schools and more than 50 city parks. Look for a loft-style apartment downtown or a hilltop home with views of the surrounding area.

3. Westminster

Median home price: $571,500

Just north of Huntington Beach and Seal Beach, Westminster is one of the more affordable towns in Orange County. In this area, you can find a plethora of cafes, restaurants and markets, as well as authentic international cuisine. Many homes in Westminster were built in the 1950s and are California ranch-style layouts.

4. Buena Park

Median home price: $504,700

In the northwest corner of the county, Buena Park has many destinations along Beach Boulevard, including Knott’s Berry Farm, Knott’s Soak City Orange County, Adventure City, Medieval Times, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum and Pirate’s Dinner Adventure Show. Most of the homes in Buena Park were built in the 1950s and 1960s, and offer plenty of midcentury charm.

5. Aliso Viejo

Median home price: $553,500

Are you in love with Laguna Beach, but can’t afford to spend over a million dollars on a home? Just beyond Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, next-door neighbor Aliso Viejo is a much more affordable alternative. Aliso Viejo’s award-winning schools, small population of about 50,000, and proximity to picturesque beaches and hiking trails make it an attractive place to live.

6. Rancho Santa Margarita

Median home price: $597,200

The community of Rancho Santa Margarita is a popular choice for those seeking a safe place to live. In fact, this neighborhood is consistently voted as one of the safest U.S. cities to live in. Here you’ll find top-rated schools and quiet suburban neighborhoods nestled among rolling hills, open space and access to nature.

Finding affordable Orange County real estate will require research, and you may have to look beyond the beach to find a less expensive inland neighborhood. Every area is unique, so start with this list and then use Owners.com to narrow it down to communities that offer everything you’re looking for at the right price for your budget.
