Realty Wrap Up: Starter Homes The market for high-cost homes has crashed and the market for moderately and low-priced homes (under $250,000) is rebounding.  So why are prospective first-time home buyers having such a hard time finding a house?   Normally, families would be moving into larger homes and freeing up these "starter homes."  But many of those families are underwater or lack equity to afford a move-up.  Plus, cash investors have been swooping up nearly one-third of all homes sold.  To discuss the starter home market is Svenja Gudell, Senior Economist for the real estate website Zillow, and Chris Little, president-elect of the Sacramento Association of Realtors.

The Barnyard Theatre This is a small theater company (mostly 20-somethings from Davis) who stage a show (sometimes two) each summer in an actual working barn in a rural part of Yolo County.  Smell the animals.  Watch the sun go down.  See an interesting play (they usually do plays that are "ambitious.)  The actors will read in our studios a scene from the play Psyche.
