This is why I'm just a middle classer

..in many parts of California:

Quote
10. San Francisco
In San Francisco, you need an annual household income of $404,332 to afford an average home. This is the most expensive market in the country, with a median monthly mortgage price of $10,108, according to Redfin.

9. San Jose
Following closely behind San Francisco is the Silicon Valley city of San Jose. Here, you need an annual household income of $402,287 to afford the median monthly mortgage payment of $10,057.

8. Anaheim
High housing costs arenít exclusive to the Bay Area. You can also find median housing prices above $1 million in Anaheim, which requires an average household income of $300,010 to afford a median-priced home with a $7,500 per-month mortgage.

7. Oakland
Across the Bay from San Francisco, you can find less expensive housing in Oakland, but you still need an above-average income to afford a median home here. Specifically, Redfin finds you need $249,554 in household income to afford the median monthly mortgage payment of $6,239.

6. San Diego
Things donít get much more affordable as you head to the southern tip of the state. In San Diego, the median mortgage cost is $6,034, which means you need at least $241,372 in annual household income to make that affordable.

5. Los Angeles
The City of Angels is much less expensive than San Francisco and San Jose, but housing costs are still way above the national median. In Los Angeles, you need a household income of $237,281 to afford an average monthly mortgage of $5,932.

4. Oxnard
Even if you donít live in one of the bigger cities in California, you still might pay high housing prices. In Oxnard, a coastal city around 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles, housing prices average $855,000, which equates to a $5,830 monthly mortgage cost. To afford that, youíd need to earn at least $233,190.

3. Sacramento
Californiaís capital city of Sacramento might be more within reach for homebuyers, but you still need an above-average income of $156,824. Here, the median home sells for $575,000, equating to a $3,921 monthly mortgage payment.

2. Fresno
If you go more inland, you might be able to find more affordable homes in California. In Fresno, for example, the average mortgage payment is $2,857 per month, which means you need $114,275 in household income. Thatís just below the average income needed to afford a home across the US, based on Redfinís analysis.

1. Bakersfield
Lastly, if youíre looking for a more affordable home in California, you might turn to Bakersfield. You still need an above-average household income of $100,258 to afford the median monthly mortgage cost of $2,506, but thatís less than the $114,627 average that homebuyers need to afford a home nationwide, according to Redfin.
