Market data is superior for all of those seeking the truth. In fact it should be impossible to make a decision based on anything but market data. Santa Clarita Real Estate is no different. We base our business model squarely on the market data as it relates to our clients, both buyers and sellers. The snapshots offered by our team can show where the market has been as far back as a three year period.

How do I search for Real Estate to see the most recent and updated listings possible without having to give my personal information? That is a great question and some of the larger sites on the WWW allow for this but they are not pulling new data several times per hour. They are stuck with the Data Upload once or twice a week. In this constrictive market - that kind of RECON is lacking for sure. So - you want a resource that is directly from each local board of Realtors that houses the Source Data within the MLS. http://911MLS.com is our unlocked source and will give you everything that is available right now - in fact it is updated several times per hour and IT IS UNLOCKED!!!!

I love the word Cutting Edge - With the PD - we might not have had the most up to date equipment - but our methods of operation, as they related to Firearms and Tactics, were the best and most updated.  The Reason was because we never knew what we would encounter.  To keep ourselves safe and out of harms way - that is probably the best reasoning. The same should apply to the largest Investment of your lives - Your home!!! SME's - Subject Matter Experts in Valencia Real Estate is a necessary step if you are thinking of buying or selling in the city of Valencia which is within the Santa Clarita Valley.

With regard to Real Estate in the Santa Clarita Valley - We wish to advise you that our blogs and other information is not for the faint of heart.  With us being very comfortable being questioned by all types of Law Enforcement, when it comes to those that don't ask any questions and take out word for everything Real Estate as Gospel - I cannot help to want to ask the Client if they have any questions and prod them into asking. Don't take it for granted that the person you are hiring has your best interest at heart.  If you are signing disclosures, contracts, or other documents that are outside of the "regular" CAR (real estate) forms, you need to get a second opinion. When you are signing secrecy documents, threatening lawsuits if you divulge the "agents" secret method of operation, or...

These rates are typical for the PURCHASE SFR borrower with excellent credit and a sizable down payment, exclusive of FHA for the down payment. Take a look at FHA 5/1 ARM rates below, as those rates are at 3.375% for all loans up to $729,750-this is amazing! This can be a very attractive alternative for FHA buyers. I do not recall ever seeing FHA ARM rates that low. Conventional Loans: 30 Year Fixed Conforming---$417,000 and Below: 4.875% with 1 Point 30 Year Fixed High Balance Conforming---$417,001 to $729,750: 5.0% with 1 Point 30 Year Fixed Jumbo---$729,751 to $1,000,000: 5.5% with 1 Point 5/1 ARM Jumbo---4.75% with 1 Point-amazing for Jumbo product   FHA Loans: FHA 30 Year Fixed---$417,000 and Below: 4.875% with 1 Point FHA 5/1 ARM---$417,000 and Below: 3.375% with 1 Point FHA 30 Yea...

Foreclosure Avoidance Options Foreclosure is one of the most devastating financial challenges that a family can face and one that many times can be avoided. The options available to residents for foreclosure are many, including but not limited to short sales. Following is a brief explanation of these solutions: Reinstatement 
A reinstatement is the simplest solution for a foreclosure, however it is often the most difficult. The homeowner simply requests the total amount owed to the mortgage company to date and pays it. This solution does not require the lender's approval and will 'reinstate' a mortgage up to the day before the final foreclosure sale.Forbearance or Repayment Plan 
A forbearance or repayment plan involves the homeowner negotiating with the mortgage company to allow them t...

Homes Available in Valencia, Ca. Within the last 5 days we have received 19 new listingsin Valencia. I'm hoping this will be the start of much more homes in Valencia to come. Santa Clarita as a whole needs inventory so badly. We currently are at a 3 month supply of homes available.  With the tax credit having buyers to be under contract by April and closed by June, Valencia homes are being gobbled up as fast as they hit the market. The least expensive home to the hit market is located in the Northpark tract. This home is a PUD in a great neighborhood with community pool, spa, and parks close by. This house is listed for $295,000. The most expensive home available in Valencia is located in the prestigious gated community called the Woodlands. This home is listed for $1,050,000. Two of th...

  Short Sales in Valencia Ca. With all the changes in the real estate market I have been able to provide quality service to homeowners that are in hardship. Millions of people enter into foreclosure every three months. I'm hear to help you as a Certified Short Sale Expert. I handle the entire process from beginning to the end negotiating with the bank directly. I have a team with many years of experience and have helped many homeowners avoid foreclosure. A short sale is when the proceeds from the sale of your property won't cover the balance owed on the loan. Lenders accept a discounted payoff on the loan and allows it to close escrow.   As an example, say you owe $400,000 on your home and it's only worth $300,000 the bank will take a $100,000 loss and let you walk from that. You must b...
