There are only “545 Active Listings” that consist of Single Family Residencial real estate, Condos and Town-homes in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities. This includes the cities of Acton, Agua Dulce, Castaic, Canyon Country, Newhall, Stevenson Ranch and Valencia – plus Santa Clarita proper.
There is no mistake. However, I know that you will be able to find one of the syndication websites that is saying they have over 900 active listings for sale in Santa Clarita CA.
Even with including the listings that are in Back Up status, that only brings us to 830 – Not over 900. (data as of 0700hrs PST)
What Gives? What can possibly be going on with the real estate inventory. Maybe these real estate syndication websites have access to more real estate listings that the local Boards of Realtors.
Maybe they are “ghost listings”. It is getting close to Halloween…
I would imagine they have a method to their madness. They are selling your personal and private information to the agents that pay for it. So, why wouldn’t they publicize they have more active real estate listings in the Santa Clarita Valley than really exist?
They don’t do any direct real estate representation, so “reputation” is not as important to them as it would be to a local Santa Clarita Realtor.
So that is the answer – some of those listings are not actually for sale or they have sold in months, weeks or days past.
One other tip I will share with you is the fact I can build a “fake” listings if I wanted to populate those real estate syndication websites. (it would not agree with my “code” and “mission statement”, but I could just the same)
Therefore, it may not be their fault – However, when searching for Santa Clarita real estate, only look at the actual Boards of Realtors Driven Multiple Listings Service Systems. Those are only available on actual Licensed Real estate agents’s websites.
