Santa Clarita Valley has so many beautiful places. One of the enjoyable drives I have after church on Sundays is through Sand Canyon and coming back to the Valencia side of town through Placerita Canyon Road and past the Placerita Canyon Nature.

santa clarita: Government Changes Benefit Homeowners attempting a Short Sale - 04/25/10 03:06 AM
Since April 5, 2010, changes in the way short sales are processed have been enacted to the new HAFA requirements.

Since many servicers only allowed a $3000 maximum payoff in the past, this change could … (0 comments)
