Hi peeps,

We are about to put house on market and move to SoCal. We were originally thinking San Diego but decided it might be too slow for us. We are 40 and 32 with a 2 year old and will likely have another.

I work from home so traffic into the city isn't a big concern. We likely will not go into LA very often but also don't want to be 3 hours away in San Diego either.

What areas offer nice custom homes from $800k-$1.5m with at least SOME yard ;-). For example, there are several suburbs within 30 miles of San Diego that offer high bang for buck since they are a bit further inland our outside the city. Looking for similar cities on the fridges of LA...

Thank you in advance!

Ok, I see some really good values in Yorba Linda and Simi Valley, North Tustin and Santa Ana! With the highest concentration of high bang for buck looking houses in Riverside.

Yeah you can still get a nice house in Santa Clarita in that price range and excellent schools. Riverside is a cesspool don't move there

I'd look at Agoura Hills, Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks. That general area just west of the San Fernando Valley is pretty nice.

If you're considering Orange County, I'd look into Irvine, Tustin, Laguna Niguel, and Yorba Linda. And if you really want to be by the beach, Huntington Beach is a decent option.

Where do you live now and why do you want to live in LA? All the places people are suggesting are basically sleepy cookie cutter suburbs that are "slower" then San Diego. You want to move to LA but not live in LA? And it sounds like you have to freedom to live anywhere so why not someplace where your money goes much further and you're not giving so much of it to the government. If you just have to be in CA by the ocean I would suggest San Diego or Santa Barbara over LA. Even Ventura/Oxnard area is pretty nice and you can get something near the ocean in your price range. But I wouldn't live in LA or CA unless I had to and I have to
