When I have Buyers I suggest to drive by the area and see what you think and whats available and if it may fit what your needs are... This part of the process.. The 2 cities both have its own unique attributes.. Irvine is centrally located. In Coto De Caza it is more secluded that Irvine.. What are you lokoing and want to accomplish? Call or email me and we can discuss the process and what your ideas are..

As the other Realtors indicated, there are so many different factors to consider, so it's really an impossible question to answer. I lived in Irvine before moving to South County, and I have done lots of work in Coto. Feel free to call me anytime to chat. All the best!

Please see my email response to you about a particular property of interest to you.
It sounds like you are indifferent at some level to living in Irvine vs not living in Irvine (definitely NOT the case for some buyers, especially out-of-country buyers).
If this is so, and you are indifferent, then you will probably find that you get "more house/lot for the buck" in Coto.
The last time I did a comprehensive analysis from Tustin to San Clemente for a relocating CEO working in the Spectrum area, we found this to be so, and he ended up buying a home in a double-gated (i.e. gated neighborhood within Coto de Caza, which is, as you know, gated, too.) Their entire family loves it (once the CEO got over a response from one of his senior employees to the effect that living in Coto is like living on "Knob Hill" :-)).
If you have older children in your family, they will likely enjoy the "network" in Coto that revolves around the club.
You'll need to "taste it" to see if it suits you.
You are comparing two completely different cities. Irvine is kind of on the way while Coto is out of the way. Coto has totally different feel to it. If it worth or not, it's all depends to what are your preferences? You have more access to major Free ways and everything in Irvine, where you have to use more of toll roads living in Coto. Also if you are moving from a smaller home in Irvine, you might have a chance to find a larger homes in Coto. Your question is very general and I don't think any answers would be very helpful unless we talk in detail. I am working in both areas, and can help you if you want to see a few homes in Coto. You can call me at 949-510-1955 or I can send you some listings in Coto to get more idea of what you can get for your money.
Best of Luck
