Some have wondered, so I thought I would explain it a bit.
The Santa Clarita Valley Cities consist of Acton, Agua Dulce, Newhall, Saugus, Stevenson Ranch, Valencia, Castaic and Canyon Country. We have implemented real estate searches which are connected to the actual Multiple Listing Service at the Various Boards of Realtors across the Southland. This includes the cities which are part of the Santa Clarita Valley. It also includes the cities in other parts of Southern California.

If you are seeing more listings online than the numbers I mentioned. You are falling prey to the websites which are not connected directly to the Multiple Listing Service. Those sites, those which are not connected, are entertainment websites – be careful…

Also, it’s not super unusual to have a listing fall out of escrow. In fact we see approximately 30% of the real estate listings which were in escrow, have their escrow cancelled and re-enter the Santa Clarita real estate market. View the Santa Clarita homes for sale again link.
It happens, sometimes it’s not the fault of the buyer and at other times, it’s not at the fault of the home seller. It depends on the specific circumstances of the escrow. To avoid this, don’t jump into anything too quickly. Also, make sure you are ‘really and truly’ prequalified to purchase residential real estate. Ask your lender about having you approved fully by their underwriter. Ask for a Underwriter Approval – that is the strongest you can get and may make the difference between you and someone else getting the home you are wanting to buy!
