California Real Estate Market: Prices | Trends | Forecast 2021
What are the California real estate market predictions for 2020? California housing market is shaping up to continue the trend of the last few years as one of the hottest markets in the U.S. Let us look at the price trends recorded by Zillow over the past few years. From the beginning of the year 2012 to the end of 2019, the median home price in California appreciated by a massive 85.5%, from $305,000 to $566,000.
Currently, the median home value in California is $586,659. This value is seasonally adjusted to remove outliers and only includes the middle price-tier of homes. California home values have gone up 6.8% over the past year. The forecast for California’s housing market in 2021 is relatively favorable but things could change, given the seriousness of the pandemic.

Why are sellers sitting on the housing market sidelines?
…selling a home isn’t all doom and gloom right now. It’s actually a seller’s market in most areas, meaning homeowners can get top-dollar for their properties — not to mention sell in record-setting time.
It could offer homeowners a unique opportunity, too. With remote work arrangements growing and morning commutes a thing of the past for many, it could just be the perfect time to sell the house and move to that dream city — be it by the beach, in the mountains, or even just back home near friends and family.
