Building costs are 9% above the national average in the state of California and equivalent to New Jersey. California is the most expensive state to build affordable housing due to lack of government subsidies, central cost control regulation and unwillingness of market property developers to take on unprofitable projects. Which is an irony because affordable housing by definition is supposed to be affordable for low-income earners. The San Fransisco Bay Area is the most expensive to build, followed by Los Angeles and others. Building a house in this state is about three times the national average.
