CA Research Data
With the median home price in the state jumping from $592,000 in 2019 to $786,000 in 2021, a 32% increase, it’s easy to see why. But what is causing this surge in housing prices?
The primary factor driving up the cost of housing in California is the lack of available housing. There simply aren’t enough homes on the market to meet the demand. This has led to intense competition amongst buyers, driving prices up significantly. With the number of homes on the market down nearly 20% since the start of 2021, it’s no surprise that prices are rising.
