Mission Viejo, California Real Estate- By: Karen Parsons Fiddler
I woke up to a beautiful Southern California day. We've been having some Santa Ana Winds the past few days and the sky is crystal clear.
One of the local activities in Mission Viejo is taking a walk around our lake. It is a 3.1 mile stretch that gives beautiful views of the lake, the mountains and our Flo Jo Park. This morning, I put on my sneakers, grabbed my walk buddy (the dog) and headed out. There were many others out already. Women in cute track suits (I'm more a sweats and T-shirt type), older couples strolling along and then there were the runners. My dog met some friends along the way too! :)
Mission Viejo is an interesting place to live. There are so many diverse neighborhoods in price, size and amenities that everyone can find a home that meets their requirements. There are condos and townhouses which are priced in the $200,000s. We also have huge custom homes in Canyon Crest and Stoneridge which are behind guarded gates. But with the market pricing fall, we also have a variety of single family homes which are finally affordable again. The Cordovas, El Dorados, and Barcelonas are nice homes with 3 to 4 bedrooms and up to about 1700 sq.ft. They are selling around $450,000. These were built in the 1980s and most have nice sized yards. Going a little bit higher in price, you can find homes in the Madrids which go up to 3000 sq.ft.
Mission Viejo Real Estate has really changed over the past couple of years and it's becoming very attractive. Most of Mission Viejo has no Mello Roos tax and low association dues. The Mission Viejo Lake Association is only $222/year. It has beautiful beaches, fishing, swimming, classes and much more. Every neighborhood is walking distance to a park and our schools are some of the best in the state.
As I walked this morning, enjoying our weather....I reflected on the quality of life we have and wanted to share it with those thinking about a new community to call home.
