Is It Important to Have Ties to the Region?

By
Question:
I currently live on the East Coast and will be traveling to Los Angeles for an interview next week. I have heard a lot about how important it is to have ties to the city in which you are interviewing but the truth is that I have absolutely no ties and applied to this position simply because it is one of the few available in my area of practice. What should I say if I am asked about ties to the region?
