Westside you have to watch out for this soil condition.
what liquifaction does is when there is a earthquake, the soil tends to become like liquid, so home foundations 'could' crack, and pools seems to need more upkeep.
In escrow you should have received a 'natural hazards report' this report will let you know about the soil. You as a buyer, can also pay for a soils test to be sure of your area...
BE SURE you had a professional home inspection from a inspection company that is licensed and that you can trust.
â€¢ Are they both overpriced? (Neither is a good purchase)
â€¢ Is the Eastside home priced at Westside pricing (if so, Eastside could be a deal)
â€¢ Is Westside overpriced? (If so you should be able to get Westside at below the asking price.)
â€¢ Is there something wrong with the Eastside home warrant a below market price? (Eastside could be a nightmare)
This type of information along with strategies to ensure that you are getting the best home for you, are the best provide by your own agent. The sellers have a professional Negotiator/ Real estate agent. Perhaps you should consider having one as well. If you need assistance please contact me.
Also, consider schools for each area (even if you do not have children) - it is always a re-sale consideration.

That depends want you want. As others have said Eastside has its charm but many homes are on busy streets with small yards(depending on your budget). For the money Westside Costa Mesa has larger lots, homes on quieter streets for less money, in general. Do you have children, are schools important? Are you going to move in 5 years, or you looking for a investment property? It is best to determine what your needs and desires are to find the home will make you happiest, located in a neighborhood that serves your family best.
There are great homes all over Costa Mesa. The East side has its charm but so does the west side. You should take this oppertunity to find a Realtor who will work with you in finding what home most meets your needs. Don't forget there is also Mesa Verde, College Park and South Coast Metro. I would love an oppertunity to wrk for you in your home buying process.
It depends on a lot of factors.
What type of community you want to live in, how long are you going to live there, are you looking for an investment or a home.......Eastside Costa Mesa is by far one of the most desirable and expensive areas in Costa Mesa. Therefore if all things are equal, Eastside would be the better of the two if you are looking at resale alone.
We specialize in the Costa Mesa market and would be happy to discuss in detail your needs to help you determine the best solution for you.
