Choosing the Right Irvine Neighborhood for Your Family

What Irvine Neighborhood is Best for First-Time Buyers?

By , 9:00 am on

With over 45 neighborhood “villages” to choose from in Irvine, how do you know where you’ll fit in best, especially as a first-time buyer? While it’s hard to go wrong with any of them thanks to their numerous green spaces, a great all-around school system, and proximity to all the best Orange County has to offer, the Woodbridge community stands out as a prime location for new homeowners. 


Of all the various Irvine neighborhoods, Woodbridge is one of the most affordable villages within which to buy your first home. There is a wide range of housing options, from condos and townhouses to plenty of larger homes for bigger families. Many starter homes for sale begin around the $300,000 range to accommodate nearly any budget.


Along those same lines, because there are so many different types and sizes of homes to choose from when buying, if you decide you love living in Woodbridge (and you probably will), you can continue to move up within the same neighborhood as your family or budget grows. Having the option to stay in the same neighborhood as your housing needs change means you won’t have to leave the friends you’ve made or uproot your children from their local school.


As with most Irvine neighborhoods, Woodbridge has numerous amenities for couples, families, or singles alike. There are two gorgeous manmade lakes for scenic morning walks with the dogs, a number of neighborhood parks for weekend picnics, and many of the private neighborhoods within Woodbridge have community pools for especially hot summer days.

Location, Location, Location

Above all else, the location of Woodbridge is perfect for anything you could possibly need. There are a number of fantastic shopping centers within walking distance, great private and public schools nearby if you have children, three high-quality surrounding golf courses to practice your swing, and John Wayne airport is just a short drive away, but not so close that you’ll be bothered by airplane noise.
