Buyers are in a great position to finally own their own property in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Despite predictions to the contrary, interest rates have not “shot up” as some analysts were saying late last year. In fact, they’ve remained fairly steady, still hovering in the low 4 percent range; even lower for certain loan programs. This means that you have more purchasing power in getting the home you want. Contact us to find out more. 

2. More homes are on the market.

While buyers were able to take advantage of low interest rates last year, they found it very difficult to find a home for sale because of such limited inventory. For most of last year, there were only on average around 300 or so available homes in the entire Santa Clarita Valley. This caused some fast and furious bidding, and many buyers lost out. This year we’re seeing what may be perceived as a more “balanced” inventory, with a nearly 3 month supply on hand. A normal market will have 3 to 6 months’ worth of available homes for sale.

3. Why rent when you can own?

Owning your own home puts YOU in a better position for your future. With a home rental, your landlord may decide to not renew your lease, or raise your rent. Worse, he can decide to sell the property right out from under you.

With home ownership comes stability of knowing what your future holds. There are also several tax benefits to owning your own property as well.

4. Home prices are rising.

You might think this benefits sellers more than buyers, but think about it: Had you bought a single family home at the beginning of this year, your net worth would be nearly $50,000* more than before you purchased the home. Remember, owning your own home doesn’t just give you a place to live, it provides you with a solid long-term investment.

Client Testimonials
I had specific needs for my new home. Brandon was very patient with my unique situation and flexible when it kept changing. He showed me so many houses, but with little inventory, none of them were quite perfect or they had too much HOA or Mello Roos. Finally when we found The One, no HOA, no Mello Roos, it had been on the market for 4 days and I made an offer that morning. I was sure the sellers would give it to someone else but Brandon worked hard to make sure they accepted my offer and by that night, the house was mine. Had it not been for Brandon I would still be searching for a house because so far, there is still nothing better than mine.
