There are so many options. Start first with your dream list of home and community. Then have a great Realtor work with you find the place that fits that list. I'd love the opportunity to help.

Dear Empty Nester,

I am single, too, and almost an empty nester. Without knowing your specific needs, I will just let you know a few areas I like for myself, and maybe they might appeal to you, too. Mission Viejo has some wonderful neighborhoods with a variety of products from smaller single level detached homes to terrific lake view condos in an upscale guard-gated community with its own private beach. Dana Point has some terrific attached homes that are easy maintenance, beach close and close to shopping. Laguna Niguel, like Mission Viejo, has some lovely established neighborhoods of single level homes, many that have been updated and remodeled, as well as some terrific easy-care attached homes in neighborhoods like Marina Hills that have fabulous community amenities. If I were to choose for myself, I would most likely choose a smaller single level detached home with a view in Laguna Niguel. You can see you have a lot of options. Once you check out a few communities for yourself, you might have a better idea of what feels right for you and what fits your budget.

Enjoy shopping!

If you like to socialize I would recommend Newport Beach or Corona Del Mar. If you give a little bit more information on what you are looking for I can narrow it a little bit more down for you.

Best Regards,

Are you looking for a single family home or a condo/townhouse? Reason I ask is because with a condo, you have someone else taking care of ground maintanance and you are free to come and go as you please without worrying about it. It's hard to recommend areas to you, not knowing your interests. Do you want to be where you can walk to restaurants? Near the beach? In a gated community? If you could clarify a little bit, I can recommend areas for you that would be suitable.

It depends on your age, interests, and budget. There are many nice neighborhoods in Orange County. Some people really love the senior-restricted communities, others don't like them because you can't take your grandkids to the pools there.
