I think Orange County house-hunters will find this useful.
It's an interactive map of how rich/poor every neighborhood in Orange County is. The website is RichBlocksPoorBlocks.com. You type in an address, and it finds the place. You can click each neighborhood to get more info on its median income.
Here's a map of Santa Ana, San Bernardino, and Anaheim, for example.

I wonder about the accuracy of their data...I see the areas of and near Dana Point have lower medians than much of Lake Forest...I am surprised by this...maybe there are that many renters in the beach areas bringing down the median incomes there?

Dana Point is proliferated with small pockets of rental property areas, housing most of the service people who work in most of the hoity-toity beach area hotels.

Dana Point isn't that wealthy. Right near the beach, sure, you've got $2 million properties with ocean views. Further back, not so much. Not sure why. Possibly because the middle tiers, 500-800k, seem sustained by married parents with kids, and the local schools there aren't very good.
