I agree with Thomas. I grew up in Anaheim Hills & Yorba Linda, and if you move to the west end of Corona known as Sierra del Oro, you can still shop in Anaheim Hills and closer to the Costco in Yorba Linda than the one in Corona. Clearly you get more house for your money but the sacrifice is if you commute. There is always the metrolink that travels through Fullerton, Irvine and South County. My husband used the metrolink for years to commute to his then office which was in Irvine. Again, fairly competitive market because the volume of buyers still wanting to live in Corona for precisely the same reason, the affordability.
