current wind is strong but strong enough for a wind advisory and elsewhere it is a breezy spring evening but then the wind advisory is were 20 or 30 mile-per-hour sustained winds can be strong enough to knock down tree branches so be prepared for that this evening but after sunset, the wind will diminish and we will take a look at the warm-up tomorrow coming up in the forecast. coming up, a state program to help more people build a home by forgiving their loan and what parts give them a best chance of becoming homeowners? cleaning up a mess left behind after a water main break washes out a popular concert venue. bicurious a bear seen a strolling around a neighborhood and even taking a nap in somebody's backyard.

♪♪ ♪ let's go out of town for the summer ♪ ♪ i wanna go across the trees ♪ ♪ just take my hand ♪ ♪ we will have fun till the sun goes down ♪ ♪ and we'll start over again ♪ ♪♪ california is giving first-time homebuyers a chance to break into the competitive housing market. we have more on a new program that offers loan forgiveness if
you state in a home long enough. >> i think it is an amazing opportunity. >> reporter: he is a realtor helping families trying to find your next home. >> the suburbs have become competitive and as a result major downtown centers like san francisco and oakland which have plenty of condos don't have the same amount of attraction. truck this condo may be the right fit for somebody trying to use the forgivable equity builder loan. >> homeownership is one of the best ways to build intergenerational wealth because there is a big wealth gap between different groups especially in california. >> reporter: it is targeted at people who have the income to pay the monthly payments required to buy a house but haven't had a chance to save up the money for a down payment. >> in a lot of cases the rent
they are paying is higher than the mortgage payment would be. >> reporter: buyers can get 10% of the purchase price for their first home and they have to live there for five years if they don't want to pay it back and qualify you need to make 80% of the area median income where the property is located. >> there is no silver bullet but there will be something here or there or there. >> reporter: across the bay area, that is $107,000 in most counties and almost 120,000 and santa clara county. >> it is possible that you can buy a home even with all of the bad news, it is still possible to get a home. >> reporter: properties like this one have a fraction of the showings compared to homes in the suburbs so buyers using this loan forgiveness prograssc >> you can't suddenly add 300,000 above listing but only how much you are preapproved for. >> reporter: patients and sacrifice are required in almost all cases in such a hot market.
>> when they compete in an area with less competition like san francisco or oakland, they may have a chance. >> if you would like more information on the home loan forgiveness program, you can look for our story. the former home of scott and lacy peterson just sold and went for 50,000 over asking price. they report that the house and modesto sold for $510,000 after less than a month in the market. the couple who lived there when scott was accused of killing her and the unborn child in 2002 and not clear whether the new owners know the history. numbers show that the population continues to drop in data from the department of finance signs that more than 117,000 people left the state between january 2021 and january of this year.
officials say it is the second consecutive year that california's population has dropped. several counties helped play a role in that decrease. they were all among the top 10 with the largest percentage drop in their populations each reporting losing nearly 1%. officials blame it on the declining birthrate coupled with an increase in deaths from the pandemic. they say fewer people are moving to california from other states and countries. the cost to repair the flood damage to san francisco's stern grove is that $20 million and five times higher than the original estimate. it washed out after a water main break last august and the public utilities commission first estimated it at about 4 million and at least 700,000 gallons of fresh drinking water cascaded in right before the final concert of the season. an unusual sight today. >> a black bear was roaming
around the streets and it started this morning when police posted this video of the bear in a tree and the bear is believed to be a 2 or 3-year- old male and police advise people to lock windows and doors and as a precaution they were put on lockdown, a nearby school, and the bear was seen strolling through some yards and took a nap in the backyard and neighbors could not believe their eyes. >> this has been going on all day and i went to fairfield this morning and i saw the police and i heard about the bear but i did not think it was on my block and now it is across the street. >> police closed down orchard to allow the bear to roam around before wildlife officials were called and the plan is to see if the bear would go back to his natural habitat and police are warning residents to keep their distance if they spot or run into the bear.
>> the bear looked pretty calm. >> it must be nice to be an apex predator. maybe he can qualify for one of the loans. it is breezy this evening and you may wish you had that extra layer. we will track lighter wind as we head through tonight and tomorrow and we will start with high pressure changes overhead meaning there will be literally more atmosphere on top of us which means a lighter wind overhead a bit warmer temperatures as these peak midweek and the next storm system will come in and the rain will largely mrs. to the north but close enough to squeeze it in getting the wind to appear thursday and friday and that is what we have right now some gusty onshore wind and most of those around 15 or 20 mph in only 10 miles sustained and 24 for the strongest at sfo but a 33 mile-per-hour gust and
also 33 mile-per-hour gust in santa rosa with a wind advisory continuing until 9:00 but it will calm down tonight and off shore tomorrow. the wind dispersed a lot of pollen but now that we are past april we will be in the medium category tomorrow and wednesday and thursday and may be down on the lower end to that pollen spectrum thanks to some showers and it is just a chance and nothing significant over the next seven days and the best we can do is a 20% chance thursday and friday which will mainly be from the golden gate northward but basically we are looking at trace amounts of moisture and no significant rainmakers in store which is not a shock in the month of may. plenty of sunshine right now filtered through clouds.
