Housing prices remain steady, although we’re seeing some signs of the end of the “summer rush.”

August showed a steady pace in the Santa Clarita real estate market, with new information released by the Southland Regional Association of RealtorsMontemayor and Associates Remax of Valencia

While there were no “wild rides” real estate-wise, we did see a market that held its own through what most consider the “dog days of summer.”

Median home prices and sales remained somewhat the same as July, with median sale prices holding at $415,000, which includes both single family residences and condominiums. We saw a slight drop in the number of home listings at 441 for August, compared to 500 in July, but the number of escrows opened and closed barely changed month over month.

Santa Clarita also saw only a slight drop in the median list price in August at $447,000 compared to $459,000. This accounts for typical pricing adjustments as the summer rush comes to an eventual close.

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.
