That's a tough question to answer without knowing what you can afford, but if you want to compare quality with price in Santa Ana, here's a good place to start:

Must be different Santa Ana that the one I worked in.

There are some very beautiful houses there, the old, craftsman styles. On tree lines streets that are full of screaming ice cream trucks and blast music day and night.

Gangs are everywhere, petty crime is rampant.

And those small houses cost over 350,000 while they are worth at least a cool 100,000 less.

Why Santa Ana?

Santa Ana has some great neighborhoods, and some great schools. Its best to find out how much you can afford first, then work from there.

Santa Ana is 27 square miles so mid-city is different depending on who you talk to. I would ask what do you qualify for and then find the best home for the money. Santa Ana has many wonderful neighborhoods depending on your taste. There are several with vintage and historic homes and there are lofts downtown which are very modern. One of the best schools is Santiago Elementary off Bristol & Santa Clara. It is a California Distinguished school twice! I have lived and worked in Santa Ana for 30 years!
