Lake Elsinore to Irvine commute, is it worth it?
I'm looking to buy a house, first time buyer. I'm afraid if I don't buy now the areas housing market will keep rising making rent progressively more exoensive. When I can lock it in. I can afford either a condo in OC that essentially will be more monthly due to property taxes and HOA fees. Or a really nice new community, 2 story 4 bedroom house with a huge yard in the Inland Empire. Does anyone commute this? What's your average time to get to and from work? Was it worth it? What time would I need to leave on average if I wanted to be to work by 9am? Is it better to suck it up in Irvine and pay a 400-500 HOA and 200-300 dollar property taxes? And any other insights you want to share. Thanks, I appreciate any insights y'all can provide.
