As per the California Association of Realtors, first time home buyers increased for the second year due to housing affordability and the first time home buyer credit.
The tax credit was the primary reason for those buyers who may not have had enough down payment and the tax credit helped to cover the difference.
Generally speaking, distressed properties and short sales sell for a lot less than the regular properties and with such an abundance of distressed properties on the market, first time home buyers affordability increased.

I will give you an example of how much the prices have dropped in 2 years in Five Canyons. The example I am giving is the floor plan close to my heart since it was my own home.
I sold my house in Five Canyons for 1,125,000 on 2/1/2007. It was a 2,992 sq ft home.
On 5/5/2008 the same floor plan sold for $925,000.
On 5/16/2009 the same 2,992 plan sold for $730,000. This home was not the best location since it was closer to the power lines which is not desirable. It was also a foreclosure property.
There is a home currently listed in that sq footage for $845,000.
I hope that gives you a pretty good idea of what has been going on in Five Canyons. The prices in Five Canyons are now starting to go back up and if you are looking to buy, now is a great time since I don’t see them going down anymore.
