“It’s improved the past four or five months. It certainly appears that affordablility was at its worst last summer,” John Karevoll, an analyst at DataQuick Information Systems, said of California’s situation. email@example.com (818) 713-3743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Los Angeles maintained its firm grip on the unenviable title as the nation’s least affordable housing market in the fourth quarter of last year, according to a survey of released Thursday. This is the ninth consecutive quarter that the Los Angeles/Long Beach area anchored the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Opportunity Index. In the October-through-December period, just 2 percent of the homes sold here were affordable to families earning a median income of $56,200. The median priced house in that time cost $525,000. By comparison, 40.4 percent of homes sold nationwide in the last quarter were affordable to families earning the median income of $59,600. But the national median price averaged $248,000 during the quarter. California also accounted for 18 of the nation’s 20 least affordable markets and the top seven least affordable, according to the index. During last year’s fourth quarter, appreciation rates moderated in most of the states markets and prices fell in some. But it was not enough to change a well-entrenched trend. For example, affordability in the Los Angeles area inched up from 1.6 percent in the third quarter, according to the survey. “A one or two percent drop in price has little effect on affordability,” Wes Keusder, chairman of the California Building Industry Association and owner of Costa Mesa-based Keusder Homes, said in a statement. Indianapolis, where 89 percent of homes sold in the fourth quarter were affordable to families earning the area’s median household income of $65,100, was the nation’s most affordable market. The median price there was $113,000 during the quarter.

Arnautovic reacts after spurning a fantastic opportunity no dice The two managers look on from the touchline at the Amex Murray then almost scored his 100th goal for Brighton, when March weaved his way from the right wing into the penalty area and chipped a cross into his path, but the striker this time headed narrowly over.With five minutes remaining West Ham won another free-kick, the in-form Arnautovic this time took responsibility but curled just beyond the crossbar.Brighton substitute Jurgen Locadia was then unfortunate when his finish, from a close-range rebound, was ruled out for the most marginal of offside calls.Yet when Arnautovic missed another late chance and they finally secured their first clean sheet of the season, it not only again highlighted West Ham’s struggles, but those of Manchester United. 4 REVEALED Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? silverware 4 Glenn Murray celebrates opening the scoring Glenn Murray punished West Ham United’s sloppy defending and lack of cutting edge to give Brighton and Hove Albion a precious 1-0 win at the Amex Stadium.The Hammers’ latest setback comes after a terrific run of form which suggested fans could finally stop looking for their name towards the bottom of the table. Latest Premier League News Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won REVEALED Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT 4 Murray had the freedom of the six yard box to tap home huge blow shining Four fixtures without defeat – and last week’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United – had encouraged an optimism that their £100million investment in new signings could yet inspire them into the top half of the Premier League.They instead again resembled an unsettled side struggling for an identity as Glenn Murray’s 99th goal for Brighton took the hosts above them and up to 12th place, and left them at risk of ending the weekend as low as 17th.The quality occasionally demonstrated by Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic will regardless be cause for encouragement for West Ham’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini, but of greater concern will be the ease with which they were outplayed throughout the first half.Brighton had already threatened when, in the 25th minute, they deservedly took the lead. The visitors’ Andriy Yarmolenko was guilty of losing concentration and then possession to Beram Kayal near the half-way line, and from there the Brighton midfielder seamlessly created their opening goal. Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won 4 After playing a swift one-two with Solly March, Kayal ran unchallenged down the left-wing and had time to look up and cross to Murray, who from immediately in front of goal had an inexplicable amount of space to routinely finish beyond goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.Anderson’s delivery ensured the visitors had a promising chance of their own shortly afterwards, but when Arnautovic struggled to connect, Pedro Obiang volleyed into the ground and over.With Pellegrini’s team struggling to retain possession, it took until shortly after the hour mark – and a more encouraging and energetic start to the second half – for them to again look capable of scoring.On this occasion, from a 25-yard free-kick Anderson took instead of Yarmolenko and when set-pieces already represented their greatest chance of equalising, the Brazilian curled harmlessly over the crossbar. gameday cracker Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card
