Buying a home in California is a dream increasingly out of reach for many residents. Only about half of the state’s residents currently own their own homes.
In general, most large conventional homebuilders build to code and no more. In most states, building to code means the home won’t fall down, but this is not the same thing as being excellent. In fact, it means that most homes are only built to the very minimum standard required by law.
Everyone knows California is a little different than the rest of the United States. Some people take great inspiration from that fact, and others fear it.
