Each zip codes have great neighborhoods, it really just depends what type of home you are looking
for. Eastside is more eclectic, and generally also has higher values becasue of proximity to the ocean, the Back bay, and especially Newport Beach.
The western parts of Costa Mesa were designed more like tract homes, however, there are gems like Mesa Verde, cute starter neighborhoods like Halecrest and College Park, and other great neighborhoods.
Whatever you pick, Costa Mesa is a can't miss for entertainment, ease of access to shops and freeways, and the weather is unbelieveable year round!
Much of Costa Mesa is great. It depends what you are looking for. Mesa Verde is lovely and a highly desirable area to live. Of course, the prices tend to be a bit higher due to this fact. East Costa Mesa close to the back bay is pleasant also. It is important that you communicate to your Relator what you are looking for and they will be able to direct you to the neighborhood that best suits your needs/wants/price.
If you are not familiar with the city you should drive around and note the areas you feel most comfortable with. If your question is what area is a good investment ? That is a completely different question.
I would guess that each Realtor will have a different opinon as to which neighborhood they prefer in Costa Mesa, however, what is most important is matching your opinions to the community.
Best wishes on your Costa Mesa home search.
