Current Housing Developments in Santa Clarita
We currently have a number of new housing communities here in Santa Clarita. Some of are complete and some are nearly ready for sales. Others are just getting started.
- Five Knolls: Located on both sides of Golden Valley Road and just north of Newhall Ranch Road. this new housing development consists of a number of different neighborhoods or tracts, each built by a different builder. The most recent group of homes for sale are at the Galloway 55+ community
- Aliento: A terrific new, rustic community located on the east side of the 14 freeway. There are five different neighborhoods, one of which is the Verano 55+ community. This Aliento project is mostly complete but it looks as though there is one more subdivision to build out.
- Newhall Ranch: A huge project with the first phase now in progress. First set of homes should be ready later in 2020 or sometime in 2021.
- Highlands: A new development coming soon in Tesoro.
- Vista Canyon: This is an ongoing development of houses in Canyon Country and should be ready in late 2020. There is not much to see yet but we created a Vista Canyon page with some information now available. Once they are far enough along and we can get some photos, we'll update the community page at that time.
- West Creek: There are two recent developments in Valencia West Creek. First, we have new condos in Paloma built by Tri Point Homes. The other is Avanti and it consists of single family homes developed by Lennar. Both are outstanding builders and we all know West Creek is a terrific community.
- Concord at River Village: New condos built by Lennar and expected to be complete in July of 2020.
This information is constantly changing, but we keep this page updated as we learn of any new developments. Should you have any questions feel free to call or text Matt & Meray at 661-713-4799.
A Word About the Newhall Ranch Project
The information we provide about Newhall Ranch comes from public sources and the developer is not much interested in sharing updates with the community. We know they have had political challenges with this project, so it's likely they are keeping a low profile until ready to allow tours and start selling. We continue to look forward to finding out more and when we do, we will share it here. We know the builder is committed to making Newhall Ranch one of the most environmentally sustainable communities in the nation.

HOA's & Taxes
What to Know About HOA's and Mello Roos
If you're planning to buy a brand new home be sure to consider the additional costs for monthly HOA dues and Mello Roos Tax, if any.
Did you know, some communities have an HOA but there are no usable amenities. Yep, you pay your monthly dues and it helps cover the cost common area maintenance only. Thankfully, most communities have terrific amenities including pools, spas, tennis etc. Some HOA's are quite expensive and others are very reasonable.
Most new housing developments in Santa Clarita come with a Mello Roos Tax and this must be considered into your home loan equation. The costs can be surprising high, so be prepared and be sure to verify all costs BEFORE making an offer to buy. We have seen numerous deals fall through because the buyers representative did not have the foresight to VERIFY everything prior to making an offer to buy. If you have a real estate agent from outside of Santa Clarita, be very careful. They often do not take these costs seriously and the deal ends up falling through.
Exact Cost for Mello Roos NOT Readily Available in New Developments
Another problem is, in new housing developments it's nearly impossible to determine the exact Mello Roos annual costs, if any. The best you will get is an approximate percentage amount from the sales representative. The truth is, no one really knows the exact amount until the property is sold and the recording is on file at the LA County Assessors Office. Usually the percentage provided is reliable.
Use Caution When Visiting New Developments
When visiting a new housing development for the first time, be sure to take your realtor. If you go without your realtor and sign in at the sales office, you will NOT be able to buy a home in that development using your own agent! I don't know about you, but I sure don't want the seller representing my best interests when I'm buying a home.
Why Work With Your Own Real Estate Agent?
When shopping new housing developments or buying any home, it's important to choose your own realtor for representation. It's not that you should fear being taken advantage of by the developer's agents, but we can't help remembering the old saying about the wolf guarding the hen house? As the buyer, it costs you absolutely nothing to use your own real estate agent, so take advantage by using your agent as an extra layer of protection.
Honestly, it makes little sense to have the seller's agent represent you. Even though all California realtors have a fiduciary responsibility to both sides in any real estate transaction, it's human instinct to lean towards the person or organization you work for. There are also MANY important bits of information the sales representatives may not mention until you ask the right questions, or AFTER you've made a commitment to buy.
CAUTION: Often, in new developments the sales agents will NOT accept your offer to buy a brand new home if is contingent upon the sale of your current home. Alternatively, they may offer to buy your home. As you probably know, they are not doing this to be kind. If you agree, you will in fact take a hit on your sale, and it could be as much as 20%!
Example: The fair market value of your home is $600,000. 20% of that is $120,000. Heck, even if it's just $40K, do you really want to get $40,000 less? This is your hard earned equity and you must protect it! Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If you have a good lender/realtor team and do some proper planning, you can get your home sold fast and for the highest price. Then you'll be in position to buy that brand new home, without taking a financial hit!
