Many considerations go in to deciding which home to buy in Porter Ranch. While price is certainly the major consideration, location with respect to work and schools can give a direction to the definition of the home that fits your budget. As a realtor in Porter Ranch, I have chosen to provide information about the schools in your potential neighborhood. The simplest way to find out what you want to know is to collect some addresses for potential homes you would consider. Input each of those homes in the link called "Find a school near your home." Once you get the name of the schools, you can read about their performance by clicking the link called "Read your school's report card." My goal is to be as informed as possible about the schools in the San Fernando Valley. So if you have any questions that were not answered by the report card. Call or email me so I can investigate your question and get back to you as soon as possible.


When searching for a home in the San Fernando Valley, click on the link called "Free complete listings to homes in the SFV." Here you will find property details for homes in Woodland Hills, West Hills, Chatsworth, Canoga Park, Winnetka, Northridge which includes Porter Ranch, Granada Hills, North Hills, Reseda, Van Nuys, Tarzana, Encino, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Valley Village, Valley Glen, North Hollywood, Burbank, Sun Valley, San Fernando, Mission Hills, Sylmar, Arleta, Pacoima, and Panorama City.


Buying a home in today's market can be stressful. There are three types of properties, all of which get treated differently. If you are shopping for a Porter Ranch FORECLOSURE, remember, you are not alone. Many people have heard that foreclosures are the source of great deals so they bid on them. After losing the opportunity to purchase a home you have selected several times, savvy buyers wise up and make a competitive offer. They realize the asking price is lower than market, so they depend on me to reveal a price that will win them the bid while still being a good deal. After they see the comparative prices of other homes that have actually sold, usually well over asking, they see their purchase price for what it is a strong offer well worth the value of the home.

A second type of home in today's market is a Porter Ranch  SHORT SALE. These too can be priced below asking. Unfortunately, these are rarely bargains. The best explanation is that the investor does not want to let the homeowner "get away" with something, so they drive a hard bargain not really caring whether the home is foreclosed on or not. Be sure to ask me for a competitive market analysis before you make an offer on a short sale so you know if the bank and the investor are being reasonable, then prepare to wait. Honestly, short sales take between 3 to 6 months to get an acceptance and then another 30 days to close escrow. So if you are in a hurry to get a new home, avoid short sales.

The best place to get a bargain today is through an offer to a regular seller. They have the power over their equity and they do not have to answer to anyone else if they decide to reduce their equity to give you a deal and move on to where ever they are going. The more MOTIVATED they are, the more flexible your offer can be.
