The California Association of Realtors (CAR), Los Angeles, announced that housing affordability for entry-level homes improved just marginally in the fourth quarter of 2009 versus a year earlier. CAR reported that the median price for an entry level home in the Golden State was $257.940 in last year's fourth quarter. The income needed to buy an entry-level home was calculated based on adjustable-rate financing at interest rate of 4.5% and assuming a 10% down payment. California's entry-level homes were far less affordable than the national average.
