With low interest rates buyers are seeing that now is the time to buy. And for those who were previously on the fence, the recently extended 2009 first-time home buyer tax credit is becoming the incentive they need, allowing buyers to save thousands on a new home this year. The $8,000 tax credit has been extended for first-time home buyers who purchase a principal residence until April 30, 2010. In addition, a $6,500 tax credit or grant is available to current home owners purchasing a new or existing home between November 7, (1 comments)

Homes Available in Valencia, Ca. - 01/27/10 06:57 PM
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 (0 comments)
Does it Sound to Good to Be True Because It Probably IS? - 01/25/10 11:00 PM
Does it Sound to Good to Be True Because It Probably IS? Recently out here in Santa Clarita I have seen advertising from agents offering a "45 day guarantee or Your Money Back", "45 day guarantee or I'll pay your mortgage" or the "I'll Buy your home if you buy a house listed by me" All of those slogans sound great but at what cost?

Why Network in Real Estate? - 01/21/10 10:11 PM
Why Network in Real Estate? When I first got into the business I had no idea the importance of networking. I thought to myself I only have time to go into the office and do my work. I have no time or need for socializing or chit chat. I didn't realize the importance of getting to know other agents and building on those relationships. Without even realizing it though I joined one of Santa Clarita's largest offices. I fell into some networking without even realizing it because the office I joined had so many agents. I started networking by just a little socializing (3 comments)
Great News For FHA Buyers! - 01/16/10 04:49 PM
We have some great news for your FHA buyers! Hud has issued a waiver that no longer requires a 90 day seasoning for properties purchased utilizing FHA financing! This waiver goes into effect on 02/01/2010. This will allow FHA basically to finance those legitimate property flips. ( Note: no double escrow allowed ) In an effort to stabilize home values and improve conditions in communities where there is foreclosure activity (basically every where) HUD made a surprising announcement yesterday of a positive change of policy that will expand access to FHA mortgage insurance allowing for the quick resale of foreclosed properties by investors.

If you are thinking about selling your home in Santa Clarita homes are selling at record pace. Our inventory in Santa Clarita and the surrounding areas is historically low. Above is only a sample of homes that I sold last year with most my listings selling in only a few days. When choosing an agent to sell your home choose an agent with cutting edge marketing skills and an agent that listens to your wants and needs. I always put my client's needs first.
