As with all freedoms, they take a little at a time…Our current problem here in my town is that we have 109 households displaced now that evacs are being lifted.
We have a rental shortage already.
CA has made rebuilding a friggen nightmare under current regulations. Often times taking too long to even approve a rebuild forcing costs higher and sometimes not falling into a time frame set by insurance companies.
Many homes have lost insurance and were in transition of trying to comply and land a policy from the CA Fair Plan (State run that does not cover everything and low values yhe home needing additional riders) that is way more money than most house holds were already paying.
Best one can hope for is a manufactured home for costs.
CA now requires solar on every new home. A plug in for the electric car you may or may not have in your garage. Fire sprinkler systems. Extra lighting and electrical than before. This also includes more widows. Engineered septic systems. Stamped housing pads. New windshear requirements near doubling fastner/nailing costs. There is a list. Would not suprise me if they re-evaluate the new housing to raise taxes.
