 DID YOU KNOW? FLEEING California?  Hardly! California housing had the hottest real estate month in 17 years!  Homebuyers gobbled up houses at a 484,730 annual pace in January, up 22.5% in a year, the third consecutive gain above 20%.  The statewide median price paid was $699,890, up 21.7% in a year and the biggest gain since February 2014.  If that’s not overheated to you, consider this: The last time sales and prices jumped more than 20% in the same month was August 2003.
