Santa Clarita homes have their fair share of history.
However, the depth is not as common in the Santa Clarita Valley as in other parts of Los Angeles.
Some of the top tier actors have not called Santa Clarita Valley their home, as of yet. When you look across the other “more established” and “more ritzy” cities, such as Beverly Hills, “history” is much more relevant.
When it comes to History and Santa Clarita Valley homes sometimes they click. In fact sometimes history can even help a home. Imagine a home full of character, so much character in fact that many buyers feel unprepared, until they find out that perhaps George Washington was born in the house or maybe Mick Jagger stayed there on his first tour in the US.
Of course there are other kinds of history associated with homes as well. If a home was the project of famed architect Walter Gropius or perhaps has original horsehair plaster walls, there is an architectural or building history that cannot be reproduced. If you are selling your home consider its history and using its history in your marketing materials.
Some people may fear history as it relates to real estate, afraid of finding that electrical systems failed or perhaps a flood occurred. The important thing to remember is that often history can enrich a home’s personality and its value. Do a little research on your home, you never know what you might find out. In fact what you uncover might get your home sold.
People live, work and commute to and from the Santa Clarita Valley every day. Being able to buy a 7000 square foot home that was just built within the last three years for 1.7 million dollars, versus a similar home in Beverly Hills CA at 20 million dollars, has it’s advantages.
In addition to that, not having to deal with as many people being “star struck” in the local supermarket is definitely a plus for those up and coming stars and starlets.
However, some love the attention, but others despise it. It is typically “despised” by those that have been at it for a longer amount of time and those that are more well know by the masses.
I’d always look into your options if you are an up and coming star to see what the housing in the Santa Clarita Valley cities has to offer you. You may be surprised at the value contained in one of our glorious cities.
Make sure you are working with a local area expert before committing to any one agent. Also make sure the realtor your are choosing is one that is “connected” within the local market so you get the best value for your buck.
