Our First real estate update for the month of December 2012 - We have one more to go and we hope that inventory will increase for our buyers in the current market.  Hope and Faith - that is all we need :)

The Santa Clarita real estate update is upon you - right now.  Whether in the Santa Clarita Valley or elsewhere in the world - We have the information which you seek.

Today, we broke into a session of wondering how much longer we have to pick out that perfect Christmas Gift.

Here is a break down of the show via bullet points (you know how I love bullet points).

  • Interest rates at an all time low - 3.31% and less - how far will they go
  • If you can save a point on your mortgage - REFI it
  • Go to your bank first to get your refi done
  • We have top Santa Clarita lenders we work with
  • The Good Neighbor Next Door - buy a home at a 50% discount
  • Go to HudAlerts dot com - not super desirable areas - for leo's and teachers
  • emt, teachers, police, fire and deputies - you have to apply for a loan
  • Register at HUD alerts dot com
  • Foreclosures are Still around - but we have seen bank owned heading to auction
  • Usually during the first sale date - the property did not sell at auction
  • Properties are moving to auction to maybe heal the economy
  • Debt forgiveness act - benefits with it or not when short selling
  • 2014 or 2015, hopefully this will extend to that date
  • Short Sales - Do you know anyone?  Give them the education
  • Short Sale Experts - are you really and why is it everyone is?
  • 100% guarantee with Santa Clarita Short Sales - Dangerous
  • I can get it done for sure - Bad
  • Watch out for the game of "over confidence"
  • Investors own short sale properties - The bank may have several investors on a single loan
  • Multiple investors - no guarantee
  • Real Estate Syndication websites -
  • Local Real Estate agent - better ways to search for Santa Clarita homes
  • IDX - use the internet data exchange
  • That is the correct home search process
  • Syndication websites don't have access to the feed
  • Agent - through the Broker - Through the Board of Realtors - Through the IDX
  • Great of monetizing your personal and private information
  • They serve their purpose - selling your info to multiple hungry agents
  • Interview multiple real estate agents - advice taken
  • 4 or 5 agents total to speak with - even with buying - get multiple opinions
  • Who's going to be the best fit for your real estate needs
  • Who is going to keep you out of harms way
  • Owe 500K on my home but it's only worth 300k - make your own decision
