2015 to 2021 – Santa Clarita Real Estate Market Update

Incredible time period for the real estate market, but the most drastic price changes happened in 2020 and 2021. Basically, interest rates dropped to all time lows but housing prices went to all time highs. We also experienced a low inventory market and as of 2022, the inventory is still way too low. Regardless, homes are being listed, bought and sold at a furious rate and even though prices are higher, the low interest rates kind of balance it all out. Right now, as of February 2022 the home prices are finally leveling off, perhaps even dropping just a touch.

4/28/14 – Santa Clarita Real Estate Market Update

In the last 10 months the housing inventory in Santa Clarita has improved from about 375 homes back in July of 2013, to just under 600 homes on the market today. Yes, interest rates are rising and home sellers are no longer being bombarded with homebuyers. Regardless, homes are selling and financially qualified first time homebuyers have an opportunity to make their dream of homeownership, come true. We strongly urge all homeowners to pay attention to mortgage interest rate projections and watch out for what is happening behind the scenes with our government with regard to mortgaged backed securities. If thinking about selling, we strongly urge you speak with an experienced independent mortgage lender to help you keep an eye on the ball. Seriously, if really thinking about selling your home, be careful!

Real Estate Market Updates of the Past – 10/2/09 thru 5/2014

7/15/2013 – Gregory Real Estate Group Blog Post – Santa Clarita Real Estate Market Update The inventory of homes on the market in Santa Clarita has been dangerously low and home sellers are being flooded with multiple offers to buy. There’s some serious competition among homebuyers and it’s really hurting the first time buyers the most. Inventory is improving and has gone up from just 250 homes as reported a couple months ago, to 375 homes for sale today! This is good news, but keep in mind housing prices and interest rates are going up. With the higher prices the cash investors will start holding back a bit, and the higher interest rates will result in less numbers of qualified buyers. This condition should slow down sales a bit and give home buyers a little better chance at successfully purchasing a home, but at a higher price.

3/8/13 – Gregory Real Estate Group Blog Post – Santa Clarita Real Estate Market Update Thank God, the market has finally shifted!

There are 20 homes for sale that are short sales, and we have just 17 bank owned properties for sale. The fact is, the supply of homes for sale in this amazing city of Santa Clarita does not meet the demand. We need more homes to sell!
