These CA counties have homes well under $500K

Yes, California is expensive. And yes, housing prices are one of the main reasons why.

But for every multi-million-dollar home in affluent coastal communities like San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County or the Central Coast, you’ll find thousands of cheaper options elsewhere in the state. .

Of California’s 58 counties, 11 have a median single-family home price of more than $1 million, according to the latest sales data from the California Association of Realtors. Twenty-five counties, however, have median home prices below $500,000 and, in some cases, well below that.

Home prices are starting to fall in parts of Southern California

The far northern part of the state has the most affordable homes with a median price of $376,000, based on sales from October. Within that region, beautiful but remote Lassen County is the least expensive ($247,500) followed by equally stunning Siskiyou County ($295,000).

In both of the counties, home prices have decreased year over year.

Del Norte County, which covers the far northwest corner of California, has a median home price of $307,500, CAR data show.

If you’re looking to stay under $400,000, you’ll also find plenty of options in Plumas, Shasta, Tehama, Trinity, Tulare, Lake, Glenn, Kern, Kings and Merced counties.

In Southern California, the most affordable homes continue to be found in San Bernardino County ($481,500) followed by Riverside County ($620,960).
