Single family homes in Orange County, CA

Single Family Homes in Orange County, CA

This web page was created as a complementary page to my Condos and Town homes web page. For many buyers, the concept of a "home" is a detached, single family home with a private back yard. The reasons are many. First, your own yard. This is the place to relax, plant a garden, or enjoy your own private pool. A grassy yard is also great for the pet dog. Second, low or no HOA dues. You are not paying for common walls or shared maintenance. Third, room to grow. Generally, single family homes have more bedrooms and more space. If your family is expanding, you will soon out grow that condominium. Last, privacy. From the entrance to the rear fence, you own the whole property!  

Whether you are buying your first home, upsizing, or relocating to Orange County, CA, you can find your ideal detached home on this page! The first section is a home search by city. If you are unfamiliar with the OC cities or if you are looking for an area with low crime or great schools, please feel free to call me. The second section is a search by price range. This search has been divided into three areas of the County -  North, South, and Beach areas. The third section is a specialty search, using search features that are popular with many of my buyers. Finally, there is a section for other web pages on my site where you can find pool homes, gated communities, vintage homes, houses with no Mello Roos, and many other related pages. If you would like a customized search, just call or e-mail me. 

Search by city

Search for your home by city. All of Orange County's major cities are included below. The homes for sale are listed with the following criteria: Actively listed single family homes, fully detached, built 1950 or later, no 55+ communities. For homes older than 1950, use my Mid-century or Vintage homes web page links below.

* Lake Forest includes Lake Forest north and south, Foothill Ranch, Portola Hills, and Baker Ranch

** Rancho Santa Margarita includes RSM north and central, Rancho Cielo, Dove Canyon, and Robinson Ranch

*** Trabuco Canyon is often used as a catch-all category for homes in the 92679 zip code, as well as the rural canyon area


By price range

Search for your single family home by price range. I have divided the search into three areas: South Orange County, North Orange County, and beach and coastal regions. Each of these search links will display homes for sale with the following criteria:  Actively listed single family homes, fully detached, built 1950 or later, no 55+ communities. For homes over $1M, use my link for Luxury homes, below. 


Specialty Searches

I currently have many web pages with specialized searches. See my list under the "Related Web Pages" header below. The searches listed below are for additional search requests and popular options that I have had from many buyers. These include single family homes with at least 4 bedrooms, houses with a 3 car garage, panoramic views, turn-key and remodeled homes, newer construction (built in 2015 or newer), "fixer" homes. These are divided into three areas of Orange County and are priced up to $1.5M (use link for Luxury homes below for higher priced houses).
