In this video, we’re going to cover the Pros & Cons
of Living in Orange County. Brian?
We have the first pro, which is the weather. Talk about the
weather. Let’s do it.
I mean, I know this is a timely piece but it’s the first
of February and it’s look at the sunshine hitting me in the
face. I feel like I’m getting sunburned right now.
It’s I mean the weather other than like the three days it
rains every year.
It’s 70s and beautiful outside.
Constantly. I mean, how can you beat the weather here?
It’s just one of the best places probably in the world weather-wise.
You can’t beat it.
Yes, a hundred percent. Talk about number two, which
is the schools, public-private, and academies, tell us all about that.
I mean, that’s the other thing.
I mean with all this weather they’ve built so many great
schools around here too because they have such great weather.
But I mean, you’ve got some of the top high schools definitely
in a country here, you’ve got private schools here, parochial,
You’ve got OCSA which is the Orange County School of the Arts here.
You’ve got you go to sit down to South County.
You got some amazing schools down and Santa Margarita
in those areas.
But I mean North Orange County.
I mean one of the Premier high schools here is Troy High School.
I mean every year it seems to be the top 50 in the
country for high schools, you know, that’s private and
public. So, I mean, that’s pretty amazing and then you also
got Rosary Academy up here Servite modern day for some of
the parochial school.
So I mean really people move here
for the schools. And its so funny, they’ll buy a house
One street over to be in the school district.
And the house price might be 10% more than across the
streets. That’s what’s bananas about Orange County
the schools are just people are moving just to get to those
They want to go to.
yeah gosh I’ve heard of people.
Yeah getting apartments..
And you will get families that are
sending kids over here.
They’ll buy a house and put like their teenage kids in the
house. And they’re not even here so they got a bunch of teenagers
driving around all over the place what they’re doing so they
can go to these high schools or these schools, you know,
or they might send Grandma over with them or something
like that, but it’s really amazing because they will
just buy a house put their kids in it.
They’ll just come visit their kids.
Just to be in those schools.
It’s yeah, it’s pretty amazing.
And its just pretty fantastic, too
That they will do that for the kids to get the best education.
Let’s do number three, Lifestyles and Recreation.
Well, I mean, it’s kind of goes on with the weather but I
mean because it opens up so many things I mean you can go
we’re talking about this before but I mean you can go and
just in Orange County.
There’s so many places to go hiking, backpacking, Fitness spots
to go to, horseback riding, you know, so many trails and things
do, go down to the beach obviously down there.
But then also inside of that within an hour to the north
of North Orange County, you’re in the snow
not even an hour, 45 minutes.
You’re in the snow depends on what day it is.
Yes, 30 minutes to the South you’re at the beach, you know,
Do you have any favorite hiking spots? Or things
in Lifestyle & Recreation?
You know what, I always say, you know, I’ve got so many friends.
I see on Instagram and other place in YouTube and things
where there, you know posting videos of themselves hiking
and just and they’re Maniacs, you know, what I mean
here, I mean, there’s so many different canyons and things
in the area here where you can hike or so many trails like
like up here in Fullerton, you know, there’s the
Juanita Cooke Trail, and so many trails that people buy houses
around but there’s so many places miles and miles of places
to go. You start going into the canyon areas here.
Obviously just so many places to go and hike and just I mean
you can go out there park your car that you know, the end
of the Cleveland National Forest and just walk through and
spend a day out there.
You know, it’s pretty amazing.
Let’s do number four, diversity of cultures. One of my personal
I mean, like I said, I mean we have, you know, certain mass
of populations in every area and their great
not just that but they bring their cultures here.
And so you have not only restaurants and things like that
that that have those different kind of cultures.
But also now, you know you have like we’re talking before
about you know, the H Mart, you know, you have Tokyo Central
Market, you know, you got the Northgate markets here.
I mean we have you know, Marcus, you know towards Indian
food or Indian restaurants you I mean, if you’re if you’re
to call me up and say hey Brian, I need a good restaurant
or market for X and you give me the ethnicity within a
minute because it seems like Agent B has become Google so
they asked Agent B instead of going to Yelp. And so I could
find it within a minute and tell you if I know someone who’s
been there or I can pop it out on Facebook or Instagram.
Say hey, has anybody been to this? And I would get 50 people to
respond and tell me if it’s good or not.
I mean It’s just the diversity is incredible and in Orange County
it really is The Melting Pot inside the Melting Pot.
Yep, people embrace it, you know, it’s not an issue
here with different cultures, things like that, people embrace all
the different cultures and diversity that we have, its fantastic.
Let’s see number five, The Entertainment.
Well, if ever it opens up again here.
- At the time of this video, yes.
At the time of this video on February 2nd
I know downtown Disney is open, but I mean you got Disneyland,
you know and all the parks there.
You’ve got obviously the Anaheim Ducks.
You got to Anaheim Stadium down here.
You’ve got some of the greatest shopping centers around you
you’ve got South Coast Plaza.
You’ve got up here,
You’ve got Brea Mall
You’ve got other malls and shopping all over the place.
I mean the thing with entertainment too you guys so many farmers
markets had pop up everywhere because that’s going back
to you know, lifestyle and going back to weather as you have
so many healthy conscious people here that you know, you
have just these fresh food markets and place to pop it up.
I should have pulled out my celery juice.
I’m drinking every day and show you that thing.
Yeah, and I got a juicer, you know, because we’re into that
too you know, just getting them healthiest, freshest, organic,
vegetables and fruits and drinking them, you know, as well
as eating that’s part of these markets and this entertainment,
you know, and the shopping is just I mean, it’s incredible.
And really stone’s throw from wherever you’re at.
You’ll find one.
Let’s do number six location, which is Orange County is in an amazing
location as you’re saying, how far away from almost everything?
Yeah, I mean if you’re in South County, you’re a second from
the beach, you know walk out there and let me know
I’ll find you a house.
You can walk out on the beach, but I mean you’ve got, you
know, just go straight up the 15 freeway and you’re hitting
in the mountains, you know, or a 10, you know within less
than an hour you and the amazing thing about Orange County
is that being more of a Suburban than an urban environment.
But we have one of the best, you know airports here in
John Wayne Airport, you know Santa Ana Airport.
I mean so that you don’t have to live in LA or go through
that crazy.. If you’ve ever been to Orange Count airport
Yeah, pretty easy.
Drive in, you can park your way across the street at one
of the hotels or whatever.
You can Uber in. Its not like going to LA.
Oh yes, yeah.
Yeah, going to LA is like actually going out of the tunnel and planes are driving by over you
You never know if they’re coming through, you know, it’s just
like and if you fly private which I know people that
fly private I mean you pull your car right up that private hangar
in the back and jump on your plan you’re out the door you
know it’s like you go anywhere in the world so that’s
pretty amazing, too, about Orange County has access to everything
We love flying out of Orange County
instead of LAX. Avoid LAX at all cost. Unless you have to.
Number seven, Low Crime.
Well I mean we’d
have to, you know, get a map for this but
We can really throw it up.
wow there it is but yeah I mean between the various
Sheriff’s departments here and then also the municipal police
departments I mean and I know I’ve talked to clients and
friends to live all over Orange County it seems like you
know I called 911 or I call the police that to do you know
a drive-thru on my street because there’s some suspicious
activity. It was like within three minutes there’s two cars driving by
You know, it’s just I mean, they really have a good control on it.
They want it to be safe.
I mean they’re definitely protecting their citizens
and taking care of them.
And but I mean, like I said, they’re welcoming everyone in
as well, but they want to make sure that people understand
that. Hey, they’re protecting us a great place to live.
Let’s do number 8, which is the job and diversity. We’re going
to throw up a list of employers, top employers, are in the area.
You guys can check that out.
But you have talked about the job diversity in Orange County
is a pro.
Well, I mean everything from entry-level working at Starbucks
or a pizza place or everything else to high tech jobs going
down in to Irvine to some of the biggest, you know construction
type of jobs, you know in the country are here.
I mean, they’re constantly building down here to obviously
Aerospace industry to the major food industries are down
here. Now you open it up giant factories and things
like because the access to transportation and rail, I mean
that’s another one you have you know Rail lines here
and no or Trucking and shipping and so I mean, it’s just
it makes it for someone coming in to move here.
I have so many clients have moved to Orange County for job
reasons. They’ve been relocated and it’s across the entire
gambit of what you can do for a living.
You know, I’ve never had like two people say they do
the exact same thing.
You know, I mean, eventually I’ll run into them.
That’s pretty amazing.
Yeah, that’s great.
If you guys have you think we missed a pro go ahead and throw
it in the description down below or sorry the comments
Yeah list a pro that we did not
Yeah because there’s
probably a lot of them. We only have so long.
I mean, what time is it?
Yes, so yeah.
Yeah, and then we’re going to go into the Cons of living
in Orange County.
So Brian, gives us the cons.
Gotta be something, come on.
Well, I guess the only con is well.
One of them is has cost of living obviously, you know kinda
it’s I mean, I’ve had a lot of clients leave Orange County
to go to other states just Cost of Living.
This is definitely an issue here.
You’re not going to get you know, the 3,000 or 4,000 square foot
house on a half an acre.
You know, completely new for $400,000 in Orange County.
You know, it’s like I think we’re talking about the median
home price in all of Orange County has like a million and
a half, you know, and the medium condo price is like almost
600,000, you know, and I mean, you know, and I mean just
in Fullerton, I think my report last week we were at like
$895,000 was our medium price home here.
Yeah, you know said it’s definitely not cheap to live in
Orange County but you’re getting I mean you’re here for all
those benefits we listed just those eight benefits we listed
before and there’s so many more of those means so, you
know, it’s one of those places where you are going to spend
the money on the house here, but you know, you’re getting
everything for it for sure.
And another con we have is the traffic.
Well, I try to stay local so I don’t mind.
What are some of the bad traffic spots on the freeway?
Probably the Orange Crush area.
I think that’s like the five, where the five, the 57,
and the 22 all meets. You know, take it down to the fifty five
and five and going down to that area.
I mean, that’s really probably the worst spot to be if you’re
going in the morning like if your North County going down
to Irvine those type of plays to go down the beach.
It’s not a great space.
to be in you know there would be some traffic there. But it’s definitely
not like LA traffic I would say I mean there’s sections on
that 5 routes. To me it just seems like they’re always doing
construction on the 5.
Always. It’ll never stop
I’m 50 years old I’ve been here since I was two and I can
remember as a little kid being in the car of my parents
going – why is there construction on this freeway? seriously
and they keep widening it. How about you widen it at one time
as wide as possible. Stop adding one lane at the time
Let’s add 3. Come on, man. So crazy.
So if you guys think we missed a con for living in Orange County
go ahead and throw it in the comments below
Don’t you dare
And we will ya if we miss something please throw it
in and then we can yeah We’re good. So that’s it for the
It wold be great but I won’t believe you.
I want to say we’ll
send you a Starbucks gift card but I’m sure about that one.
Not good enough.
I’m just kidding okay.
Yeah, but throw it in the description below guys, in the comments below.
And this isn’t the Seattle Data Nerds,
This is the LA Data Nerds.
Alright guys, that’s it for this video.
I’ll see you later.
