Hah, one person's dream . . .
I am totally the opposite of Eliza. I prefer defined and separable living rooms rather than an amorphous "living area". (OK, I accept having a casual space off the kitchen is probably a good idea for families.)
But basically, my dream house is one which costs under 3 x income.

Anna Eshoo, Enemy Of Cheap Housing,
StuckinBA gave you the full link at 10:41 am. It's the March SoCal numbers from DataQuick.
Alright, I know median is not the best measure available,
EVERY county on the DQ SoCal list has a YOY median down 15% plus, and the SoCal aggregate median is down 23.8% YOY.
Plus sales have taken ANOTHER big seasonally adjusted fall (up 18% from February when the normal Feb/Mar delta is 38%).
March Bay Area DQ numbers are due out in a few hours. :twisted:
