Hello,
I have family in HB and San Clemente, but it's too pricy for me. I want to stay in South OC. What is the "reputation" of Trabuco Canyon, Lake Forest, Rancho MV/SM? Where are the good and bad parts? My budget is 1.2 million. Commuting is a non-issue, as I will be working from home. Thank you in advance for all replies!

There are no real bad parts in any of those areas. There are parts of Trabuco Canyon that are relatively rural, and where fire/flood danger is greater there, but otherwise it's all fairly similar. Rancho Mission Viejo is the newest area that you listed, so will have the newest homes. Otherwise I'm not clear on what you are looking for specifically.

The only one I would not consider is Trabuco Canyon because of remoteness and fire danger.

Families, suburbia, some remnants conservative, military folks (old timers) stationed at El Toro, biotech employees, summer heat further inland, lots of new development including huge monolithic apartment complexes and new subdivisions between the 241/133/5/Alton, people who can afford $400/sqft homes, low crime, relatively low unemployment despite Covid.
Also, Coto's zip code is Trabuco Canyon's which is 92679.

Trabuco Canyon is absolutely stunning, I live there and love it! Look into Dove Canyon and Coto de Caza, Robinson Ranch is nice as well.They are tucked away in beautiful neighborhoods. RMV is nice, it's a brand new master planned community-so you will have mello-roos. Mello-Roos is a separate tax. Usually a 20 or 30 year bond and sometimes gets renewed, the neighborhood uses the money to maintain the community. It can be quite a large amount in certain neighborhoods, and definitely adds to your monthly expenses. Lake Forest is nice but pretty busy, depends on what you're looking for in a community.. Have in mind the newer communities have smaller lot sizes, the older homes have bigger lot sizes, mature trees, etc. Really depends on what you like and what's important to you, the crime in those areas are all low.
