Historic lows related to Santa Clarita homes for sale

    Listen to HousingRadio

    Tracking back on the “active” real estate listings, we see that we have had plenty of times where inventory has been low. However – 2018 has taken pole position related to the lowest amount of active real estate listings for sale.

    When there is adequate home buyer drive in the Santa Clarita Valley cities, we see that lacking inventory creates pressure on those home buyers and create a home seller’s market.

    A sellers real estate market is one in which particular advantages go to the home seller. It could be that the home seller is planning to refuse any request for repairs that the buyer may be intent on making.

    Another option, not continuing to put the horse before the cart, is the home seller may not consider any offers that are financing with less than 20% down payment.

    We view the Santa Clarita real estate market to continue on this path, at least for now. To have excessive inventory would be to switch the home buyers market to have the advantage.

    That time will come and we will keep our Santa Clarita real estate clients updated as to when that will be.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
