buy: Happy Easter from Tony & Dani Lewis RE/MAX of Valencia - 04/14/19 01:27 PM
Happy /Easter, Easter begins the unofficial start of the home selling an buying season.  This is the time of year when buyers come out of the woodwork, competition for well located homes increases and we begin to see multiple offers.  This is a great time for those of you looking to make a move to prepare your home for sale.  The least expensive improvements include landscaping, painting and cleaning or replacing the carpet.  Declutter your home as a home looks more comfortable with less furniture.  Cleanliness is essential.  No dirty clothes on the floor or dishes in the sink.  Buyers judge how … (2 comments)

buy: Rent Control - Good or Bad? 4th of July Events 2018 - 06/24/18 05:26 PM
Family, Friends & Clients,
There seems to be differing views of what is right or wrong when it comes to the real estate market.  Ask someone if they like rent control and the answer from home owners and investors is polar opposite from those that are not home owners.  Rent control makes owning an investment property a bad investment.  Take the career of a Realtor such as us.  We have no pension and could never survive on savings or social security so we have invested in rental properties as a way to secure our financial future.  Prices rise every year and the … (3 comments)

buy: Schools Out For the Summer & Starts August 16th (Father's Day Events) - 06/13/18 07:12 PM
Homes sales are slowing down for several reasons. Prime reason is lack of inventory, followed by rising interest rates and then homes being listed at a price above what a will buyer will pay. We are now seeing price reductions often in all areas of the Santa Clarita Valley. Home prices have risen significantly since the start of 2018 and with higher prices and interest rates the average days on market has continued to fall. The Median Price with all areas of the Santa Clarita Valley included stands at $544,425. The average days on market is about three weeks or less. … (1 comments)

Existing Homes are better:
• if you want to have the property already landscaped.
• If you. want to know the neighbors in advance to moving in.
• If you want to see the neighborhood you will be moving into.
• If you want to see the schools, teachers and get enrolled right away.
• If you want to close escrow in a shorter time period.
• If you want to make sure no developments will come in that devalue your home.
• If you want to avoid added taxes such as Mello Roos

buy: Trick or Treat, the scariest things in real estate! - 10/30/17 02:30 PM
Dear Friends, Fanily & Clients,Halloween marks the beginning of the traditionally slowest real estate market of the year.  The slow season run through the holidays until near the end of January or up to mid-February.  This by no means indicates that it is not a good time to sell or buy a home, in fact, this could be the ideal time to be both or either. Finding a home at this time of year is beneficial to buyers as there is much less competition.  A seller may be more willing to compromise than at they might be at peak season.  This doesn't … (0 comments)

buy: What's Unique about real estate in the Fall? - 09/25/16 08:47 AM
The Fall in Southern California is an incredible time in real estate due to the perfect storm.  Sellers have reached the peak pricing for the year and buyers are able to purchase a home with less competition.  This is that time of year when both parties are happiest with making a deal. 
Selling a home and buying another at the same time is more beneficial at this time as well.  The home they are selling, if priced and promoted properly, should sell in a timely manner.  The home they hope to purchase will be much more apt to accept an offer … (1 comments)

buy: Will your decision today change the future? - 03/20/16 04:11 AM
Spring of 2016 enters with a shortage of housing.  Rising prices and the potential of the rise of interest rates will make it more difficult for first time buyers to compete for a home.  Pent up demand with many buyers sitting on the fence continues to fuel the unlimited supply of buyers for the dwindling inventory.  Compound this with the fact that Millennials, about 83.1 million, now outnumber Baby Boomers.  The housing market has recovered since the start of the recession in 2006.  However prices are still below the prices at the peak of the market.  There are more qualified buyers … (2 comments)

buy: Last Call - 03/09/16 09:38 AM
It can take 4 - 6 weeks to find a home and now with the TRID (The New TILA RESPA Integrated Disclosures. • The Loan Estimate replaces the initial Truth-in-Lending disclosure & Good Faith Estimate for most. closed-end mortgage loans. • The Closing Disclosure replaces the final Truth-in-Lending disclosure & HUD-1 Settlement Statement. for most closed-end mortgage loans.) it can take another 6 weeks to close escrow.  That means searching to purchase a home starting on March 10, 2016 could possibly be closing escrow in the middle of June. 
People make the same mistake year after year and wait until the … (3 comments)

buy: Superbowl & how it affects real estate - 01/09/16 12:11 PM
The first thing that comes to mind during the NFL Playoffs and especially Superbowl Sunday is the Open House.  The people out looking at homes during the playoffs and the parties that ensue are truly highly motivated or simply not Football Fans.  The agents that are taking them out to see homes are highly dedicated to their clients or simply not Football Fans.
This is a terrific time for a seller to list their home should they also be in the market to purchase a home.  There are much less buyers during the NFL Playoffs so an offer, even a contingent offer, will … (6 comments)

buy: Prices are Up yet Activity is Down, Go figure! - 01/05/16 01:21 PM
Supply and demand ultimately determine the value of an. y product with homes being no exception.  However this relationship is sometimes disguised as it surely is this year.  The stock market, China devaluation of their currency, financial problems in Europe and war in the middle-east should all dictate a slowdown in the rise of home prices.  There are less buyers out there looking for a home but as it turns out, those looking are highly motivated and buying homes.  The low inventory of homes for sale has kept homes scarce and given home owners confidence to list at a higher price.  Homes … (3 comments)

buy: "Halloween 2015" Los Angeles, Southern California & Ventura Events - 10/06/15 04:12 AM

Dear Clients & Friends,
Halloween - Evolving from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, modern Halloween has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead.  Over the millennia the holiday transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults.

buy: Incredible News that can be life changing - 09/20/15 07:37 AM
Dear Clients & Friends,
There couldn't have been better news for the struggling middle class than we heard on Friday.  The Fed has decided to hold interest rates and will not raise them for now.  This is incredible news for those with adjustable interest rates, home owners thinking of selling and of course those sitting on the fence that need an added incentive to get off the fence and purchase a home.

Dear /Clients & Friends
It is the end of a wonderful Summer and School has already begun.  Six Flags Magic Mountain & Hurricane Harbor are ending their seasons and footballs are already in the air. 
Dani & I have updated the Labor Day Weekend events page, we sure hope you enjoy our efforts.
The local real estate market has benefited from a steady recovery.  This is a market in which prices have stabilized and multiple offers have happened much less than they had in recent years.  Homes sales are up about 20% over 2014 and prices have risen about 10% in the past … (3 comments)

buy: The American Dream is alive and well! - 07/26/15 08:49 AM
Dear Clients & Friends,
Home ownership is back on the top of the list for most Americans when they speak of the American Dream.  This is a positive change considering how taboo it had become just a few years ago.  Home prices in most areas are at or near the value seen in 2008 when the bottom fell out of the the real estate market.  Home prices continued rising for the next two years but sales numbers fell off the table.
Homes are once again selling at pre-recession numbers as consumer confidence has returned and interest rates remain well below normal.  Many fear … (22 comments)
