The June housing affordability index stood at 27 percent, down five points from 32 percent for the same month last year, according to C.A.R. The June index slipped one percentage point from May, when it was 28 percent.

At 66 percent, the High Desert was the most affordable region in the state, followed by Riverside/San Bernardino and Sacramento, both at 43 percent.
