The median home price in California reached $838,260 in June. With a 20% down payment, that would bring your payment to $4,332, according to the OC Register.

If that number comes with sticker shock, you’re not alone. This is an all-time high!

The median home price is just a statistic. That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of much more affordable options in Southern California.
