How's the Market? 

Presently in California: Source California Association of Realtors August 2017

The combination of high prices and high demand in California have combined to create an environment of record low affordability. With the economy sustaining wage growth and low unemployment rates, households who have finally saved enough to buy have rushed to buy homes while long term mortgage rates remain low.

Looking ahead, the CoreLogic HPI Forecast indicates that home prices will increase by 5 percent on a year-over-year basis from July 2017 to July 2018, and on a month-over-month basis home prices are expected to increase by 0.4 percent from August 2017 to September 2017. The CoreLogic HPI Forecast is a projection of home prices using the CoreLogic HPI and other economic variables. Values are derived from state-level forecasts by weighting indices according to the number of owner-occupied households for each state.
