A new report explains how much money you need to make to be able to afford a home in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties. The California Association of Realtors released its housing affordability report and it showed homes in California were less affordable in the first quarter of 2017 than the first quarter of 2016.
