Old Orchard of Valencia
Old Orchard was one of the very first Newhall Land and Farming master planned communities in the Santa Clarita Valley. At the time, the concept of a homeowner’s association was something new to the real estate market, especially for those relocating to Santa Clarita from Los Angeles or the San Fernando Valley.
The Old Orchard Community of Valencia was built in the mid 1960’s and actually consists of three beautiful and well established neighborhoods.
- Old Orchard 1 (438 homes)
- Old Orchard 2 (389 Homes)
- Old Orchard 3 (no HOA)
Old Orchard 1 and 2 each have their own homeowner’s association as well as amenities which include pools, spas, clubhouses and picnic areas. Old Orchard 3 does not have a HOA, so if you’re not a fan of HOA’s Old Orchard 3 might be just right!
A homeowner's association is created as a part of the original real estate development. This means it's actually in place before a home is even sold. The idea of a homeowners association was primarily intended to help keep the community maintained and the home values maximized. The other benefits for homeowners were the shared community amenities such as the swimming pools, spas, picnic areas and clubhouse buildings. In the case of Old orchard of Valencia, it appears that this HOA idea turned out to be a huge success!
Some of our home buyers specifically want to only view homes for sale in Old Orchard if they are a part of one of the HOA's. Others what nothing to do with any neighborhoods with HOA's! There are pro's and con's either way and we encourage our friends and clients to think it through before moving forward and buying a home.
We know some homeowners dislike HOA’s due to the rules and regulations, but if the intended result is to preserve property values, the Old Orchard neighborhoods 1 and 2 are a success! The homes and common areas still look absolutely wonderful. Only the residents can judge if the restrictions imposed by HOA rules and regulations are worth the benefits.
