How Old Are Buyers in California?

We have home buyers of all ages in California.  But I had no idea of what the average age was.  The California Association of Realtors (CAR) did a survey.  It turns out that buyers are spread out amongst all age groups, but the top buyers are Gen Y.  

How Old Are California Home Buyers

Combined with Gen X this is 61% of Home Buyers.  I think this is a good sign that younger people see the value of home ownership and preparing for their future.

It says the average home purchase price is $180,000?  This seems really low to me.

Gene, Interesting information but state wide stats mean nothing locally. Yet this is what CAR spends money on?

Jen - it seems low to me too, but these are first time buyers and it may include condos.  Many people are buying for the first time in outlying areas.

Kathleen - Most the time I would agree with you.  But I think this is an interesting tid bit on a trend.

Shiela - Thank you.
