Santa Clarita Secure Real Estate Website – Daily Recap 2017-103

    Santa Clarita real estate newsWelcome to the 103rd day of 2017. We are going to give you the numbers as they relate to the Santa Clarita real estate community.

    During the past several weeks The Santa Clarita Valley real estate world has been plagued by lacking home inventory.

    This real estate market condition does benefit the home sellers in the SCV cities. However, it is a very sensitive issue for those who are in the market for buying.

    Results of restrictive housing inventory

    We have observed that this constrictive inventory does cause several trends to be so:

    • Buyers are more likely to make full and over priced offers

    • Buyers are more likely to use gift funds in order to strengthen their down payment

    • Home buyers in this market are more likely to agree with seller’s shrinking of inspection timeframes

    • A home buyer will be less offended when a seller does not agree to the buyer’s repair request

    • Buyers will be in competition with other buyers for the same home/condo/townhome

    These five items are only the tip of the iceberg related to the current market conditions in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.

    Market conditions resulting in a Shift

    The home sellers are not complaining though and this trend will continue until the real estate market experiences a shift or change. Possible changes that could occur which would start the shift from a home seller’s market to being a home buyer’s market will be:

    • Increase in interest rates. Example – a home buyer who is qualified at $500,000.00 will experience a $50,000 loss in qualification amount for a .5% (1/2 of a point) increase in interest rates.
    • Increase in real estate inventory – Currently we have very lacking inventory (see below) – in fact, we are at an all time low for housing inventory, lower than in the past 4 years! If our current inventory were to, let’s say, double – we would see a shift from it being a seller’s real estate market in the Santa Clarita Valley to a Buyer’s real estate market.
    • War – this always changes the current real estate market trends.
    • Economic Factors – Unemployment and Inflation also will do damage to a healthy real estate market.

    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.
