SCV, if you are from our neck of the woods, stands for the Santa Clarita Valley.
Often referred to, by that acronym, by the locals and those that have spent any amount of time in our valley. While driving around or visiting you will soon see it plastered on Buses “Think SCV”, in movie theatres, restaurants and entertainment centers.
The Santa Clarita Valley, aka SCV consists of 6 cities – possibly 8. I say “possibly” because the most common held view of which cities compose the Santa Clarita Valley is as follows,
- Canyon Country
- Stevenson Ranch
There are two cities just to the north of the SCV that some view within and some view without. I’ll mention both of them here,
- Agua Dulce (the city limits bump into Saugus and Canyon Country)
- Acton (it’s city limits bump into Agua Dulce and continue north to the Palmdale City Limits)
If you are searching on any of the internet portals for Real Estate in the SCV, you are not going to find much by that search. In fact, if you are conducting your real estate search with the terms, Santa Clarita or Santa Clarita Valley, you will find the results lacking.
The reason for this is the Board of Realtors for the Santa Clarita Valley does not categorize any home in “Santa Clarita or Santa Clarita Valley”. SCV is viewed by their computer MLS database as more of an “Area” than a “City”.
Each Real Estate listing for sale, sold, pending, backup, bom’d, lease, rental, etc., is fit neatly into one of the cities mentioned above. On the other hand and besides the Board of Realtors, if you are looking for entertainment, restaurants, schools, and other “Santa Clarita City Information” – your search will be better conducted including the words “Santa Clarita” or “Santa Clarita Valley”.
Big and Small Business has it’s place here as well – I have included a few links to “the go to” with regard to local Santa Clarita Businesses.
Human beings still don’t think as computers – We are a bit more spread out in our approach 🙂
I put every property type on the map below – it is categorized by city – I included all of the cities listed above. You will see the newest first Real Estate listings for sale in SCV – SCV Rentals – and SCV Leases.
