California home prices could begin falling later this year

California home prices to weaken further, Goldman says – MarketWatch

“Median California home prices are still creeping up, and the state’s strong employment trends should support the real estate market. But Goldman is worried that surging prices in the state in recent years weren’t driven by traditional factors such as strong employment and income growth. Instead, the bank reckons an increase in ARM mortgages offered to borrowers who were already stretching to buy high-priced homes fueled the boom.
Now that lenders are cutting back some of these types of loans and regulators are beginning to crack down, California home prices could begin falling later this year, especially in high-price cities and towns, Goldman said.”
