Santa Clarita real estate update 2017-069 Facebook Live

    When it comes to real estate, and the buying and selling of, there are certain things that both buyers and sellers need to know to make it the best it can possibly be.

    First things first, knowing the current housing market is important. Is the market in a seller’s zone or Buyer’s? Are buyers having to compete for the homes which are for sale or are they offering without competition? Read a buyer’s market article

    How about sellers, what is their competition level? Are there other homes that compare with theirs for sale in their neighborhood? How are they priced? Are the other homes less expensive with more in the way of upgrades? Read A Sellers Market Article

    After the answers are obtained related to these questions, both sellers and buyers will be able to adjust their approach and make their real estate endeavor a bit more palatable.

    During today’s Facebook Live Video which I posted on my personal Facebook Account, we observed that real estate inventory is poor to say the least.

    We see that in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities only 428 homes – condos and town homes currently for sale.

    The break down of residence types for sale in the Santa Clarita Valley are:

    • Santa Clarita single family homes – 331
    • Santa Clarita condominiums – 44
    • Santa Clarita town-homes – 42
    • Santa Clarita manufactured homes – 8
    • Santa Clarita commercial residential – 3

    That rendering of homes and real estate listings for sale is very low. In fact, during the past 4 years, we are very close to the lowest point ever – check this out:

    Another point worth referencing showing the trends within the Santa Clarita real estate market have to do with housing prices. We are getting close to peak prices which were experienced back during the end of 2006 and the beginning of 2007.
    Something on the graph which is very telling has to do with an apparent reduction of median home listing prices, there is a decline and that has to do with the interest rates increasing.

    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.
