Hi Ronnie- There are only two zip codes in Costa Mesa, either 92626 which is in the western and northern part of Costa Mesa, and 92627, which has most commonly been referred to as East Side Costa Mesa, and also has a small portion of western Costa Mesa in it as well.

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!

Good evening, Ronnie.

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.

92627 and 92626 Both strong areas. Depends on what kind of SFR your looking for and if your looking to rent or buy. Typically the East Side as a result of being so close to Newport Beach has been a stronger zip code of the two and more pricey however there is more value in my opinion to be found in what is called the SOCO Metro area. This area was historically a "less desirable " area however over the past two decades there have been some great developments and the City of Costa Mesa as well as the smart consumer have started to re-gentrify the area. Hope this helps. There is a new development right off of Victoria call Bungalow 7 that is stellar !

Carolyn and others gave good answers here. There are indeed lots of good things to say about each of the areas of Costa Mesa. The main thing for you as buyer is to drive around and see what you like, get out of your car where there is shopping and commercial activitiy, find out location of schools, where the activity centers are, and get a feeling for what you like or not.

Best wishes on your Costa Mesa home search.

There have been sales in this range over in the southwest area. I think they were all REO's or short sales. You won't find an SFR on the east side or in mesa verde. A few more REO's came on the market this week.

Three zip codes in CM? I know of 92626 and 92627. There is a NB zip that seems like it should be in CM, but it is still technically a NB zip. Which one am I missing?

Hi Ronnie~

There is quite a bit of variance in terms of area, amenities, neighborhoods and price range in Costa Mesa so you may want to figure out your general price range and type of home target first and then work with a Realtor to find the neighborhoods that appeal to you most within your price range.

If you have more questions or want to know specifically what is availalbe in Costa Mesa, feel free to contact me via my website.

I'm not a realtor, but I do live in CM and know most of the neighborhoods. What do you mean by good? Also, what kind of price range for an SFR? There is a pretty big variance in SFR prices because of the diversity of the neighborhoods.
