LOCATE THE LOWEST AND HIGHEST-PRICED HOMES IN CALIFORNIA

If you're eyeing a house purchase in California, brace yourself for significant expenses.


As per the April home sales and price report by the California Association of Realtors, the median price for an existing single-family home in California surged to a record high of $904,210.



Since April 2023, the statewide median home price has climbed approximately 11%. Jordan Levine, the association's vice president, noted that although the market showed robust performance in April, a swift recovery isn't expected due to persistent inflation and fluctuating mortgage rates, despite recent decreases. As of Monday, the average interest rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage in California stood at 6.64%, as reported by Zillow.



Levine highlighted that the uptick in housing inventory will furnish much-needed supply to the market, potentially fostering a higher volume of home sales in the latter half of the year. For those on the hunt for a new residence, the California Association of Realtors' April home sales and price report delineates where to find the most affordable and priciest housing options.
