  • Over the long-run, the median home price of an existing single-family home in California has increased about 9 percent a year since 1969, according to the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. 
  • The Mortgage Bankers Association in Washington said Wednesday that its index of total mortgage applications rose 3 percent last week to its highest level since March 2004, and applications were up 73 percent from a year earlier. This could be a sign that potential buyers are regaining confidence in the market.
  • Homeowners accumulate significantly more wealth than renters. According to the most recent Federal Reserve Survey of Consumer Finances, the median net wealth of a renter household is $4,800, while the median net wealth of a homeowner household is $171,700.
