The California real estate market is “red hot” according to the California Association of Realtors. In September, home sales climbed to their highest level in more than a decade with a statewide median home price at $712,430―up more than 17 percent from September 2019. As a result of record home sales, the real estate sector continues to play a significant role in the nation’s economy in 2021. 

CalCPA is bringing together leading experts in economics, tax and legal to discuss important issues impacting property owners in the state to become more resilient, handle current challenges more effectively and overcome potential risks. COVID-19 and the wildfires have significantly impacted California―one of the nation’s top real estate markets.
