See below the MLS search results for distressed properties for sale in Santa Clarita. A distressed property can be a short sale property, a bank owned property, bankruptcy listing or a probate listing. A short sale property or pre foreclosure, both mean the same thing. The home owner is having problems keeping up with the mortgage and in danger of foreclosure. As a result, he or she sells the property and the lender agrees to accept the proceeds from the sale.
If you're considering short selling your home, it's best to start the process, sooner rather than later, especially if you've received a Notice of Default. If a sale date has already been set, it's probably too late. Nowadays, lenders are not willing to extend sale dates as they once were.

When planning to buy a distressed property in Santa Clarita or anywhere in California, you'll need a variety of information that is NOT available in the real estate listings. Knowing all the facts about the property you intend to buy is vital for a successful transaction. Unfortunately, the public facing short sale listings won't tell you everything so you'll need an experienced short sale agent to obtain the necessary information.
If planning to buy a short sale property in Santa Clarita, here are some of the answers you'll need:
- Number of liens on the property of interest.
- Who are the lenders? This matters because some are easier to work with than others.
- How far behind in Payments?
- Has a NOD been filed.
- Has a sale date been set. If so, it's very unlikely the lender will extend the date.
- Property occupied? If a renter is the occupant you could have problems evicting them after buying the property.
