Wall Street Drama How it Affects Local Real EstateBy Joshua Suess         Wall Street may be in New York, but most people want to know how the stock market drama will affect local real estate in Santa Clarita. Let’s take a quick look at what’s happening in our market. First of all, while most markets around the country have a rising number of homes hitting the market and skyrocketing inventory levels, we are seeing the exact opposite here in Santa Clarita. Our inventory has been decreasing steadily month after month.

While most markets are experiencing a slow down in sales and a shortage of buyers, we are seeing increasing sales with a huge pool...

  "Curb appeal” is the good impression or feeling made when looking at a home from the curb to the front door. It is taking the best exterior feature of the house or yard and enhancing it to the fullest potential. Believe it or not, it can be one of the most important factors to home buyers and many will choose not to view the inside of a home if the outside does not look up to par. Here’s how to maximize your curb appeal: Keep landscaping neatly trimmed and maintained. Keep your grass green and replace dead spots with new sod or seed. Don’t neglect flowers, plants and trees. Trim dead stems or branches and if they aren’t looking good, replace them! You’d be surprised how far some inexpensive annuals, like petunias or impatiens, will go. Add low voltage landscape lighting. It’s an easy...

Homeowners are hungry for an advantage - something that can give their home an edge over the competition. According to Joshua “Dr.” Suess of Remax of Valencia, such advantages fall into one of two categories: price and condition. But for a great deal of homeowners, prices are already low enough… that leaves option two.  “Compare it to buying a car,” says Suess. “If you’re looking at two cars and they both cost $20,000 and one has all the bell and whistles, which one would you buy?”  Translation? Before you put your home on the market, make a few simple upgrades. Paint the walls. Plant some petunias. Clear some counter space.  In real estate circles, such changes are called staging. In the same way you might consider detailing your car before you slap a for-sale sign on it, staging your...
