Harsh Reality – Estimated 18 years needed to save to buy a home in San Diego

More specifically, a household earning $89,000 per year that can save 10 percent of its income for 18 years would then have enough money for the standard 20 percent downpayment on a median-priced home of $589,000 in the county, Trulia says. San Diego ranked as the nation’s fourth most difficult city to save to buy a home.
