New Santa Clarita homes and new home builders are getting desperate

    The New Home Builders in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities, had been expecting their inventory would be selling faster than it has. Some of the obstacles are the “larger than average” mello roos taxes that are associated with some of the new Santa Clarita Home Sites.

    A couple of the new home builders have paid off the mello roos tax for their new home communities in Valencia. Smart business, and you know what happened? They sold out within a few days.

    Some questions we have come from our clients, wanting to know if they are able to have those fee’s waived. This is not case because it is a Tax. Mello Roos are taxes the builder did not pay up front and are passing along to those that will pay them when buying their new construction real estate.

    There is a history with the mello roos tax. History comes in to play when discussing the original construction in Stevenson Ranch California.

    The builders thought they were able to pass along the fees they would normally have to pay to each of the homeowners. Who would of thought this would actually work.

    But, it did. The buyers, loving new homes, were willing to pay the extra fees that pay for streets, infrastructure, schools, lighting, and additional resources to accommodate the larger population.

    Here is what you should do next. Call us to schedule you for our new home tours. We will cover the new homes and new housing that has and does not have Mello Roos.

    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.
