Hello Mrs. Bailey! This is Tina Vo with Realty One Group. I have a listing in Tuscany Hills, Lake Elsinore in escrow now and have sold a few homes there. I live in Huntington Beach. I have been going back and forth to LE, the commute is about an hour from Costa Mesa, so it's not bad if you want to live in a beautiful home for half or 1/3 of the price in Costa Mesa. You can buy a beautiful home there with 2-story, 4-5 bedrooms, 3 baths, 3-car garage, 2500 - 3200 sqft with price range from $250K - $350K. Tuscany Hills and Canyon Hills are the 2 most prestigeous areas with beautiful community pool/spa, club house and goft courses (Canyon Hills). The next community is Rosetta Canyon, newer area with homes built since 2006. the home price is lower than the first two.
If you have additional questions about Lake Elsinore, please don't hesitate to call me at 714-345-8415 and will send you a few listings for you to preview online.
Thank you for contacting me and good luck with your new home!
