Bay Area homes: more affordable this quarter than last - The quarterly improvement in affordability for the region reflects "stronger real wage growth" during a period "where we've had pretty mild inflation," Wei said. Combined with a slowing of the rate of home price appreciation in recent months, that adds up to some seasonal relief for buyers.

REAL ESTATE: How jobs help on housing front - CAR said higher wages and lower seasonal home prices helped push up affordability. Similarly, CoreLogic’s chief economist, Frank Nothaft, points to additional jobs added to the economy plus a slight increase in weekly earnings as key factors in pushing down foreclosures.

Palo Alto office, condos proposal would double footprint - A proposed development for office space and condos on Hamilton Avenue in downtown Palo Alto has drawn the ire of neighboring residents. Developer C.M. Capital wants to demolish a 43,272-square-foot, three-story office building at 550 Hamilton Ave. to erect two buildings that would more than double the existing footprint.

Where is California’s housing inventory? -  What is going on? The answer is several things: economics, demographics, tax policy – all are playing a role.

California employers urging legislative action on workforce funding - "For California’s future commercial real estate operations talent pool to maintain and even expand its place as a leading global economic power, we must make sure that our workers are prepared for the 21st century economy and tomorrow’s intelligent building’s technical needs that is already underway,"

Living Rooms That Don’t Revolve Around the TV - In these spaces, the television takes a back seat to conversation, relaxation and aesthetics. Some of my favorites:

Channing Way, Sausalito

Ambergate Street, extension and renovation
