Hi All,
Was looking at Ladera Ranch in my zillow searches. Looking on goolgle maps I see a wastewater plant to the east and a landfill to the south.

Any problems, odors, contaminants, etc. reaching Ladera Ranch from those?

Seems odd that so much high price property near such things?

There are $1M+ homes in Ladera, but I'm just looking at condos in my price range.

(As of this week, given current interest rates, I'm being told I can mortgage about $440K + whatever I can add to that. So I'd be looking at low end in Ladera Ranch, if not all of OC.)

As a kid growing up in various places along the east coast, don't remember things like this being near residential areas for the most part. (Maybe the greater rain out east forces different planning decisions? Not sure.)

No, wastewater plant and landfill have not contaminated the area. They would not be developing here if it did. I own 3 homes in Ladera and wouldn't move anywhere else. Also the market is the market, the price will be indicated by what someone is willing to pay. My home I am in now was listed at $2 Million a year ago and I had to go $50,000 over asking to get the house! Had 3 other offers on it by the time I put in mine. You will want to beware of property taxes however as Mello Roos can sneak up on you. This can make Ladera Ranch much more expensive than surrounding areas.

Ladera is far inland, just over the hill from Trabuco up the road is the Inland Empire. Expect much hotter summers, its all box cookie cutter tract homes, even the upper end Coventry is a bit cooker cutter with come customs too. The area is a bit "Stepford Wives" too all living in their cookie cutter KB homes thinking they are the most important people in the world. Someone please tell them its not Hombly Hills.
