I love the rhyme – enjoy the system we have put in place to search for the MLS based listings. This is everything that is “real” in the real estate listing world.
We have to be licensed Realtors, our Broker has to be licensed and a Realtor, everything has to be approved by the Local Boards of Realtors and that is not an easy feat.
With seven to fifteen minute updates, you will see the newest real estate listings first.
If you register to get the listings emailed to you, then you will get them at the moment the local real estate agents do. and that is all I have to say about that!
Where are we this week?
Looking at the current real estate inventory in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities – we have these numbers to report.
I have been monitoring 554 Active real estate listings for sale in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities. These include Acton, Agua Dulce, Castaic, Canyon Country, Newhall, Saugus, Stevenson Ranch and Valencia.
I have also been keeping my eye on the 306 BackUp real estate listings in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities that are in the backup status of escrow – current numbers as of 3/3/2015.
We also have another 255 Pending real estate listings that are in the “pending” status of escrow.
For more information about what the backup status and the pending statuses are – go to the MacBoX in the margin of this blog, type into it the words – Backup or Pending, respectively.
As far as the Distressed real estate inventory in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities, we have a total of 26 real estate listings that are “REO, Foreclosure” in nature. If you want to see these, go to our macBoX and type in the word: Foreclosures into the MaCBoX!
Tune in on Wednesdays for our REO Wednesday and Foreclosure, with distressed real estate intel, radio show! – It’s a mouth full, but you will notice that there will be a lot to speak about when it comes to the distressed housing inventory for the Cities within the Santa Clarita Valley and Greater Los Angeles areas!
Most people don’t have issues with walking, and if you live, or want to move to some Southern California Cities, you will fall in love with walking.
There is something to be said, being able to go out for dinner, and only have to walk.
I think that is what attracts Paris and I to San Francisco, West Los Angeles and the Town Center Living spaces in Valencia. They have some great walk scores.
There are very few that can compare with San Francisco – but some are pretty close.
Our real estate clients want you to know the best ways to search for home by walk ability factor.
In case you were wondering, “walk ability” is a score given to homes and real estate for sale. The higher the score, the more “car-less” you are able to become. The Lower the walk ability score, the more car dependent you will be.
Imagine a Walk ability Score of 100% – you can search for those types of real estate listings in Southern California.
I did another youtube video showing the 5 real estate listings, at the time of the recording of that video, that had a 100% walk ability score. They were located in Los Angeles – which is a “hop skip and a jump” from our REMAX Powerhouse Offices.
Enjoy our Real Estate Search resources – you will never be asked to register to search for homes our “True” Multiple Listing Service real estate search systems! I guarantee it…
We would love the opportunity to be your Realtors of choice, but not by tricking you into it! I hate that way!!!
Paris911 – here is how that breaks down in actual language. Paris is for a person, not that person, but one of the team leaders of our Realtor Team HQ’d in the SCV Cities. Connor is the 911, That would be who’s typing feverishly on the keyboard now, explaining who we are and why Paris911.
As stated, we are in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities. Representing Buyers and Sellers of homes and real estate.
Today is our Sold Saturdays broadcast where we speak about the listings that have sold and whether they sold for more of less than their listing price.
With regard to the numbers for the local Housing Market and the sold Saturdays Broadcast, we have some very positive news related to the current market.
Meaning, properties are selling for more than listing price, at least a quarter of the time. That is good news as it relates to the local market and economy.
We will keep track of the home prices in the coming months and pass that information along to you as well.
When it comes to real estate and the way in which things work, we try to keep our fingers on the pulse of housing in the SCV cities.
Today, during our broadcast I thought we would talk about a circumstance where an active home that on the market for sale, may not be.
We ran into this yesterday with Percy and Lisa. Percy and Lisa are two of our real estate clients that have had their eye on a home that has been on the market 180 days.
It’s a standard sale – so the “interesting developments” and “extended time frames” that exist, with short sales, don’t enter this picture.
The 180 days on market timeframe, which was the case with this listing, for a Standard Sale Listing in the Santa Clarita Valley is strange. This is because our Average time frame for selling homes in the SCV is between 60-80 days on market.
When I first observed the days on market, I was sure that this home had been in escrow for quite some time in the past.
As my eyes scanned the page and got to the Confidential Remarks, those that only Agents are privy too, I observed what I thought to be true.
“This home is subject to the cancellation of the previous escrow.”
This means, they were indeed on the market for sale, they entered escrow and then the deal was “going to be” cancelled for some reason.
This could have been because the real estate buyer found out something that was “wrong” with the home they were in escrow with.
The real estate buyer may have lost their ability to finance the home that they wanted to buy. This could have come about with them losing their job, getting laid off or losing some type of financial backing which was necessary for them to buy the home.
Another reason why this could have cancelled is due to a “seller” issue. Maybe the seller did not want to budge when it came to the buyer asking for a credit for the repairs. In this circumstance – the seller still does not have the power to cancel the deal, the buyer would have to back out!
This may have been the “straw” that broke the camels back when it came to the buyer/seller relationship.
