Best Way to Find Condos
There is no easy way of finding condo or townhome communities. You will have some luck by viewing the condo listings displayed above. Once you see the map for the specific location you should see the name of the complex or neighborhood.
Once finding a condo you might like, driving through the complex is a good idea. However, some are gated so it might not be possible. If so, contact us in advance for and we'll arrange a tour.
Less Obvious Condo Locations
Some neighborhoods might include an assortment of houses, townhomes and condos. Others could be a condo complex or neighborhood filled with condos or townhomes only. This can make it difficult to find a nice unit unless you know where to look.
Buying a unit can be a bit tricky. Unless you are familiar with the complex and day to day life, you never quite know what you're getting into until you're moved in. If possible, try chatting with current residents to get the full lowdown on each area.
Well Known Local Condo Communities
Below we provide a few of the more well known condo locations but there are many more. Also, just because does not mean one is better than the other.
We especially like the townhomes in the Village Walk community. Another popular community is at the Villas at Town Center, aka, The Madisons. An old favorite condo community can be found at the Siena Villas. The Madisons and Villas at Town Center are located in the same general area in Valencia, right across the street from the Valencia Town Center. There are many more.

Condo Community Amenities
Most condominium buyers expect to live in a well maintained community filled with amenities such as playgrounds, swimming pools, hot tubs, etc. Unfortunately, this is not always true with all communities. In fact, there are a few condo communities here with none of the above. Usually, there will be a pool, hot tub and perhaps a play ground for the children. If it's a larger complex there may be multiple pool locations.
In the more upscale condo neighborhoods residents might enjoy more amenities such as gyms, movie rooms, juice bars and the like. You can bet, if a complex has more amenities, the monthly cost will be higher.
When viewing condo real estate listings, DO NOT trust what you read in the listing descriptions. Aways verify the amenities and amounts BEFORE making an offer to buy.
Typically, the common areas include the building exteriors, gates, walkways and landscaping throughout the community. Basically, anything except the interior of each condo.
HOA Benefits and Higher Costs
The monthly HOA dues for condos or townhomes are often quite steep but the amenities are usually well worth it.
Although there are exceptions, usually the HOA takes care of any maintenance or upkeep outside the condo or townhome and the residents pays for any repairs or maintenance inside the home. Even though you might pay higher monthly HOA costs, you get more in return.
There are always exceptions and gray areas. For instance, sometimes the condo owner may be responsible for the air conditioning unit. Exterior painting, roofing, landscaping, irrigation and security is often taken care of by the homeowner's association.
Then, sometimes the HOA includes utilities, internet, TV cable, garbage collection and such.
The HOA's for condominium or townhome communities are not all the same, so it's important ALWAYS VERIFY the amounts and what is included BEFORE making an offer to buy!
Financing for Condos
Many first time home buyers purchase a condo using FHA financing! This is a great way to keep your downpayment low, to about 3-1/2%. Be sure to verify the entire condo complex is FHA approved BEFORE making an offer to buy. It can be a very frustrating experience to find out the condo of interest is NOT approved for FHA financing. Condo buyers can avoid this roadblock by working with us. We keep a complete list of all FHA approved condos. If we know you intend to utilize FHA financing, we'll show you exactly where to look.
Thankfully, we provide a current and complete list of condos in a communities approved for FHA financing.
By the way, condo facilities must be approved for VA loans too. Also, if there are ongoing litigations with the HOA, that could also affect any type of financing.
There are a number of unique challenges associated with financing any condo and having a proactive real estate agent/lender team can be a tremendous boost. If you are serious about buying a condo, we can help.

Condo Living and What to Consider When Buying a Condo
f you have ever lived in an apartment, you'll have a pretty good idea of what to look for when planning to buy a condo. However, if you've never lived in anything other than a house, there's much to consider. See below a few suggestions about what to look for when searching for a condo.
- Multi Dwelling Structures - Unlike a single family home, when living in a condo you'll have neighbors living next door, separated by a common wall. Depending on where your condo is situated, you could have neighbors above, below and on each side. Residents often prefer living in an end unit for a bit more privacy.
- Condos or Townhomes? - Sometimes you will find condos that are more like townhomes or even houses. This can be confusing and it all depends on what the title says. Often, a townhome is a duplex. Usually, a condo building uses common walls to divide up space between multiple residents.
- Size of Units - Nowadays, some newer condos can be quite large, but generally you can expect to find mostly 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom units commonly sized around 1000 sq ft. Look closely at the floor plans. Some architects do a better job than others at making best use of space in smaller units. You'll need to adapt you possessions to fit the available space. Generally, when buying furniture, think smaller.
- Storage Space - In most cases, there is no garage so be sure to verify if a separate, storage cabinet or locker is provided.
- Parking - Parking can be a problem in condo communities. Usually, each resident has at least one covered parking space and perhaps one other space. What about parking for visitors? If visitor parking is important to you, make parking a primary consideration when searching.
- Security - Some condo communities in Santa Clarita are gated and others are not. Add this to your check list.
- Site Maintenance - Look closely at the community and amenities. Everything should look clean and fresh.
Living in Peace and Harmony
Based on our own observations, overall, the condo communities here are generally very well maintained. We often notice lots of friendly smiles and residents appear to be enjoying their homes. The crime rate here in SCV is quite low and we have outstanding medical services. We also have plenty of award winning schools.
What if you have a disruptive neighbor?
Unlike an apartment building filled with renters, a condo owner cannot be as easily evicted. Yes, legal action and liens can be taken, but condo owners and their neighbors must depend on each other to live in peace and harmony.
