    Leftists are great at driving up costs on everything.

    More demand, less supply, higher prices.

  • It's because of all the regulations and taxes the nutjobs who run the state inflict on the people who want to live there because of the beautiful weather.  It's why so many people are fleeing the state, not everyone wants to live in a place where libshits think people should be allowed to defecate in the streets.

    Communist money is heavily invested in

    California real estate. The Japanese did

    The same thing in Hawaii in the 1990's

    And the market crashed after most Hawaiians

    Packed up and left Hawaii as they could not

    Afford to live there. No buyers = a real estate

    Crash with prices dropping over night. If

    Enough people leave California the market

    Will respond. It is the only way to fix the

    Inflated housing price problem. Screw the

    Foreign investors of California real estate

    By leaving California until it crashes.

    It's called a sunshine tax.

    Excessive Taxes and Regulations.  It all boils down to that.

    From gas prices to housing to the cost of a Big Mac Combo, excessive taxes and regulations are responsible for all of these things being much more costly than they should be.

    Because people are willing to pay more.

    Because there's more people than there's room for.

    Because it costs more.

    In reality, people in CA make more money because they have talents/excellence that demands a higher salary. Since there are a large number of people in this situation it raises prices for everyone.

      Yeah, through welfare programs that people in California support. Go figure. 

  • property value and living expenses

    oh, and space

    same as New York  

    though New York would be less worth the money
