The goal of this blog is to create a community oriented forum where people can ask questions and discuss issues related to life in the Santa Clarita Valley area. I encourage people to ask questions about Santa Clarita, which as a long time 19 year resident , I will do my best to answer. This blog is open to both Santa Clarita Valley residents and non residents who are perhaps considering a relocation to our community.

In this situation both notes for the 1st and 2nd mortgages were held by the same ban...

I have had many agents and mortgage professionals tell me that the lenders will not consider allowing a seller who is "upside down" on their mortgage to sell their home with a short sale unless they have stopped making their mortgage payments, some well intending agents will tell this to their di...

 I just sent a letter out late last night to many of the buyers in my data base that want a home but are "waiting" to see what happens with our local Northern Los angeles real estate market. I basically let them know that the Feds have cut the interest rates 1/2% which improved the stock market a...
