Now that the economy is begining to stabalize, Amerians are feeling more comfortable buying a home than they have been in the past 5 years. Take a look at this graphic to see the breakdown.

So what does the average California home buyer look like and what was their home-buying process like? The California Association of REALTORS conducted a survey on 1,400 eligible respondents who closed escrow between September 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013. Here are some of the results what were found:

63% of buyers found their agent online

Percentage of female buyers: 53%

Average age of a California buyer: 38 years old

63% were a minority with a breakdown of: 28% Asian, 26% Hispanic, &  8% Black

Amount of time investigating on their own before contacting agents: 7 months

Average downpayment amount: 25%

Percentage who used financing: 91%
