You may be able to purchase your dream home in California for a slightly lower price than before, according to a new study.

Researchers at Black Knight Inc, a technology company that analyzes mortgage lending data across the United States, found that home prices in six California cities have decreased from their 2022 peak prices.

Those cities were: San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, San Diego, Los Angeles and Riverside.

San Francisco and San Jose experienced the greatest price decline, falling 13% and 12.7%, respectively. Sacramento, San Diego, Los Angeles and Riverside all experienced price declines between 8% and 12%.

Nationwide, Black Knight researchers found that 14 out of the 50 largest markets in the U.S. have seen declines of 6% or more from their 2022 peaks.
