Owning a home is a dream for a lot of people. Many people want to be able to buy their own home. Many families live in homes all over the world.

Since homes are large, they cost a lot of money. Most people cannot pay all of the money for a house at one time. They need to pay some money each month.

In California, the price of a house has gone up. In just the past year, the prices have risen and are continuing to go up. Many people want to buy a house before the house costs too much.

Many people are rushing to buy a new house. When a new house becomes available, there are a lot of people who want it. Sometimes a house can be sold in a day or two.
