New Housing in Santa Clarita
We currently have a number of new housing communities here in Santa Clarita. Some are complete and some are nearly ready for sales. Others are just getting started. Even if all the homes in a given community are sold out, if it's a newer community, we still include it in the list below. It's not uncommon for a few homes to go back on the market very quickly. It's also possible one of the last model homes is still available.
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 may be possible to find a resale or model home.
New 20,000 Home Development in Valencia, CA: Located just west of Magic Mountain, this is a huge project with the first phase now in progress at Mission Village. The first set of condos or townhomes should be ready later in 2021 or sometime in 2022. This looks to be a terrific new community but we'll reserve judgement until we see the impacts to traffic and other local conveniences.
Skyline: A new development of lovely homes built by Pardee Homes and TriPoint. The community is located at the east edge of Plum Canyon. Some neighborhoods are complete but there are a number future neighborhoods in the works. The main, HOA recreation area may just be the BEST ever!
Vista Canyon: This is a unique community of convenience, with over 240 detached homes in Canyon Country and should be ready in late 2020. We have toured a number of times and created a Vista Canyon page, filled with interesting information and photos
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 were mostly complete in 2020. as of April 2021 they are still a good number of units available for sale.
Williams Ranch: 497 new homes in Castaic now being developed by Williams Homes and model homes should be available to tour in late 2021. Of all the new developments listed, this one is our favorite!
Toll Brothers at Plum Canyon: Includes 4 neighborhoods called Mirabelle, Avalon, Sierra and Victoria neighborhoods, all built by Toll Brothers and located in Plum Canyon of Santa Clarita. Mirabelle and Avalon are complete. The new gated neighborhoods of Sierra and Victoria are under construction but models are ready to tour.
If you don't mind buying a new home that is considered newer, but not really brand new, browse through our communities in Santa Clarita. There are a decent number local neighborhoods considered to be "newer" by most. For instance, the Villa Metro community was built from around 2013 to 2017. Valencia West Hills is still very new! Check out River Village and some of the newer neighborhoods in Copper Hill North. Valle Di Oro is a lovely gated community built around 2013. We provide full reports on each of these terrific neighborhoods.
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.

HOA's and Mello Roos in New Developments
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, (not all) 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 surprisingly 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.
New Homes on the Market Built from 2015 to the Present
The listings below will include some brand new and never lived in homes, but others could be resales. If you are interested in buying a resale for a nearly brand new home, be sure to find out why it's being sold. Call us for professional representation and we'll tons of advice.
BEWARE! Use Caution When Visiting New Developments
When visiting a new housing development for the first time, be sure to take us with you. If you go alone 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 when making a major home purchase, I prefer to have my own representation looking out for my best interest, as opposed to the developers sales agents. Also, since our commission is paid by the seller, as the buyer it costs you nothing for your own representation and there are so many benefits.
Benefits of Working With Us When Buying a Home in a New Development
When you work with us you can rest easy knowing you have an added layer of protection. Remember, the developers representative are sales people and it's their job to sell! Of course, they will talk up the positive and may avoid the negative. Knowing the right questions to ask well get the answers you need to make accurate and informed decisions.
Thankfully, we have a great deal of local knowledge and throughly investigate all new developments in our area. We'll provide your with the positive AND negative aspects of each community, the neighborhoods, homes, amenities, local conveniences and more. We will be with you when you tour the community and meet with the sales agents. Then, if you decide to buy, we'll help protect your best interests and guide you, every step of the way.
CAUTION: Often, in new developments the sales agents will NOT accept your offer to buy a brand new home if it 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 out of kindness. 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!
