“Please be advised Santa Clarita is not recognized as a viable city option in the CRISNet Multiple Listing Service. Only those cities listed, as options ,when entering a listing may be used.”
Meaning? The real estate agent that is entering real estate listings for sale has to choose which particular city the home is located within.
Since that time – it was not as simple as choosing Santa Clarita. The agents had to know something about the lay of the land in the SCV Cities.
Santa Clarita is AKA “Santa Clarita Valley” which is AKA “SCV”. Santa Clarita Valley, or SCV, is composed of – Acton, Agua Dulce, Castaic, Canyon Country, Newhall, Saugus, Stevenson Ranch and Valencia.
That quote was written by the Southland Regional Association of Realtors, the SRAR, my board, in February 2012.
The most savvy of us Realtors built systems showing all of the listings in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities with the click of a photo (click above).
The newest Santa Clarita real estate listings will populate the page first. You will see categories such as “new”, “foreclosures”, “short sales”, “open houses”, and more. These are the real listings directly from the Multiple Listing Service or MLS.
Our workaround. When those relocating or even those who live in the Santa Clarita Valley want to search for homes and home values – they usually don’t assign themselves to a particular city.
They usually use the search term with Santa Clarita inside. For example, Santa Clarita real estate. Santa Clarita Homes. Santa Clarita condos. Santa Clarita Foreclosures. Santa Clarita home values. Santa Clarita real estate market. Santa Clarita open houses.
Hence why we build sites with our Featured Cities and LIstings under our Top Areas and Neighborhoods posted prominently on the front page:
By using those inquiries and long tail keywords, they soon find out that most “savvy” realtors have had their websites adjusted to include the cities mentioned within the Santa Clarita Search Query.
Make sure you see what we are doing in the way of increasing knowledge about Home Search, Buying real estate and selling it!
Will the real expert please step forward?
We have published over 10,000 real estate articles at SCV661.com. I have conducted thousands of real estate radio shows and housing radio broadcasts at HousingRadio.com.
