There actually are quite a number of less expensive properties in Orange County. There are several senior communities, and they offer different environments. There are two that come immediately to mind, Laguna Woods is a very large community south of Irvine and west of Lake Forest. You can find units for rent under $1000 a month most of the time. The other is Casta Del Sol, which has fewer lower cost offerings, but offers more green space and has a large community garden.
If you are interested in either of these, give me a call at 949 632-4883 and we can see what meets your needs. As you probably know, as a RealtorÂ® my fees are paid by the Landlord, so our service to you is without fee. Not a bad deal. With so many properties in distress it is good to work with an experienced RealtorÂ® to help avoid troubled properties.
I look forward to hearing from you.
