Costa Mesa is wonderfully unique city in Orange County that is nestled between Newport Beach, Irvine, Santa Ana, Huntington Beach, and Fountain Valley. While Costa Mesa doesn’t have any beachfront property, its residents benefit from the more even, moderate beach temperatures year-round. South Coast Plaza, a premier shopping mall, is also one of the more famous destinations within Costa Mesa that draws people in from all over Southern California. There is a diverse population as well, which is evident from the different types of retaurants and eateries peppered throughout the city.
Costa Mesa is also a very pet-friendly city. There are also some wonderful hiking and biking trails that lead you directly the beach, which is great for those who enjoy outdoor activities.
There is no wonder why so many people are interested in calling Costa Mesa “home.” Growing up in the L.A. area myself, it’s not as big of a “culture shock” to visit and live in Costa Mesa as you may experience if visiting or living in South County (southern part of Orange County). If you’ve ever lived in L.A. for a while, you’ll know what I mean!
So for those of you who are interested in or considering a move to Costa Mesa, here are the latest active listings on the MLS as of today. These are single family detached homes listed for $500,000 and under (29 listings total):
