The median price for a home in California has topped the $600,000 mark for the first time ever, and rents are exploding in cities across the state.
It's an affordable housing crisis that has strengthened calls for rent control, driven up rates of homelessness and forced migration out of the Bay Area, where the median home price is above $1 million in five of the area's nine counties.
This July, we're hosting a housing special on how the cost of living here is making the California Dream more and more difficult to achieve, and we want to put your questions to our panel of experts.
Whether you're looking for advice on where your family can afford to live on an annual salary of $60,000, or you want to know how the statewide rent control ballot measure would affect your landlord's ability to raise your rent, send us your questions using the form below and we'll work to answer them.
