Wall Street Drama How it Affects Local Real EstateBy Joshua Suess         Wall Street may be in New York, but most people want to know how the stock market drama will affect local real estate in Santa Clarita. Let’s take a quick look at what’s happening in our market. First of all, while most markets around the country have a rising number of homes hitting the market and skyrocketing inventory levels, we are seeing the exact opposite here in Santa Clarita. Our inventory has been decreasing steadily month after month. With that said, nearly 52 percent of the homes on the market are either foreclosures or short sales, leaving “normal sellers” in the minority. While most markets are experiencing a slow down in sales and a shortage of buyers, we are seeing increasing sales with a huge pool...

  "Curb appeal” is the good impression or feeling made when looking at a home from the curb to the front door. It is taking the best exterior feature of the house or yard and enhancing it to the fullest potential. Believe it or not, it can be one of the most important factors to home buyers and many will choose not to view the inside of a home if the outside does not look up to par. Here’s how to maximize your curb appeal: Keep landscaping neatly trimmed and maintained. Keep your grass green and replace dead spots with new sod or seed. Don’t neglect flowers, plants and trees. Trim dead stems or branches and if they aren’t looking good, replace them! You’d be surprised how far some inexpensive annuals, like petunias or impatiens, will go. Add low voltage landscape lighting. It’s an easy...

                                             Santa Clarita Valley home sales up 22% Sales of existing single-family homes increased 22.2 percent throughout the Santa Clarita Valley during July with the 237 closed escrows up 43 transactions from the 194 total of a year ago, the Southland Regional Association of Realtors reported on Thursday, Aug. 28.

                                                                                      OLD GLORY Some of you may remember who are not from Stevenson Ranch that this tree made history with many tree sitters trying to save this tree. The tree sitters and activists were concerned that this tree which is aged 400+ years old would not survive the move. Old Glory had world press coverage back on January 20, 2004 for being the world's largest transplanted tree documented by The Guiness World Records. This tree was adopted by the local Boy Scout Troop as it's symbol and I am happy to report that to this day the tree is alive and thriving.                                           Let me introduce you to Stevenson Ranch Boy Scout Troop 499 There lives a great big tree... She belongs to you and m...
