CalHomeNews covers figures, trends of housing industry
Welcome to CalHomeNews, a new website about the California housing market and homeownership.
Your current home — or the one you will buy down the road — will likely be your biggest purchase. It’s a commitment that could pave your financial future.
CalHomeNews details the housing market and shares the latest real estate news, which has become increasingly difficult to find in daily newspapers and their respective websites. Certainly, there are many well-known real estate websites, but most look at the national housing market overall rather than focus on California.
And, as many homeowners and home shoppers know, California is a much different market than the rest of the nation.
The Golden State often enjoys hard-to-believe housing booms — creating some hefty gains for homeowners — but also endures painful housing busts. In fact, some Californians are still dealing with or recovering from foreclosures or underwater mortgages.
Currently, thanks to a better economy and job outlook, the housing market is enjoying an impressive upswing. But a lack of affordable housing could slam the door on many home shoppers.
Of course, affordability, regardless of the boom-or-bust cycle, is always an issue in California, which has some of the nation’s most expensive markets. Statewide, about one of every three families could qualify for the median-priced home.
But CalHomeNews goes beyond the facts and figures about the housing market. Just as your home is more than an address or simply about appreciation, the website details some of the latest issues and trends while offering some helpful information and tips.
CalHomeNews also includes a weekly blog, looking at the financial to the fun in housing.
Just as homeownership demands hard work, patience and sacrifice, I’m certain CalHomeNews will require the same. It’s very much like an extensive renovation, an online work in progress.
