Newport Peninsula ..very nice, but just like the state of Californionia ..it's in slow decline..Newport Coast/Pelican Hill , /Lido Isle, Corona Del Mar,Newport Heights,Back Bay are all experiencing depreciation

I consider ALL factors.....I've been through 2 very bad fires and had embers coming down in my yard during one of them. The Laguna Canyon area was closed many times that following winter...(with Newport Coast being in the infant stages)...we had a lot of rain and a lot of flooding...having a 4wd paid off as far as getting my toddler out of harm's way...evacuations are not fun.....

Does it happen all the time? Of course not! But when one plants onself in an area where there aren't a lot of escape routes, well, you just need to go through what I did and then you consider more than the ocean view....

Also, if I were to move to the Crystal Cove/Newport Coast area, I think I'd make sure to get an independant geological evaluation, too.
