Over the years, we at the Gregory Real Estate Group had the pleasure of helping many newcomers relocating from out of the area to Santa Clarita. There are many reasons for moving, but regardless of the cause, they all involve many tough decisions. The more local information an out of area home buyer has at their disposal, the less stress they will experience during the process. It's important to be as well informed as possible and that's why it's critical to have a local real estate professional to help with the process. Newcomers usually have little or no information about Santa Clarita, and it's difficult to find relevant and current information online. Here is some information specifically developed to help those moving from out of the area to Santa Clarita. Located about 30 miles n...

Controversial FHA payoff rule to end   Kenneth R. Harney       WASHINGTON — Can you be charged interest on your mortgage even after you've fully paid it off? Can the meter keep running when you owe the bank nothing — your principal balance is zero? Surprise! Much to the chagrin of large numbers of home sellers and refinancers, the answer for years has been yes. If your loan was insured by the Federal Housing Administration and you paid it off before maturity, at closing you'd be expected to cough up a full month's interest, no matter what day of the month you actually settled. Even if you closed on March 2, for instance, you'd be charged interest by your loan servicer through March 31, potentially adding hundreds of dollars to your costs in the transaction. The FHA's practice has been u...

Good news for Realtors, lenders and condominium unit owners who’ve been frustrated by FHA’s prohibition of “spot loans” in developments that haven’t obtained certification: The agency is now seriously exploring how to relax its ban and bring them back. Officials are mum on the details and timing, but they confirmed to me on Friday that reviving this key financing option is now under active study. The main reason: FHA is under growing political and trade group pressure — NAR and the Community Associations Institute especially — to do so. Source - Inman News - Ken Harney - Contributer.   This would be a major benefit to both first time buyers and condo/town home owners.  A large percentage of first time buyers are only qualified for a price range that will allow them to buy a condo or tow...

Dear Clients, Friends & Fellow Realtors,The seasonal lull has created an increase of active listings throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.  Our inventory has grown to 525, much higher than the lows of a year ago but well below the 1,600 that once existed.  Homes are staying on the market longer than last year, considering that prices have risen about 15% this is quite understandable.  Our weather has been incredibly beautiful so I am anticipating an increase in buyer activity every week for the next 8 months.  We are at that time of year that home buyers should find a home before the rush and home owners should prepare their homes in order to list during the peak selling season.  Dani & I work on your schedule so let us know when you would like to get together.  We are reachable througho...

Real estate professionals all agree, when selling a home it's always best if the home is clean, well maintained and clutter free! Sounds quick and easy doesn't it? Well, we know how costly and time consuming it can be to make the home sparkle and shine, especially if planning to put it on the market this Spring. Of course, there's much more that can be done, but exactly where to draw the line? That's where your realtor can help. Always check with your realtor before undertaking any major upgrades before selling. Clean is good, but since it takes time and money, we have a way to help! Special Offer for Home Sellers Yes, preparing a home for sale can involve hard work and be expensive. It will certainly be time consuming, but we've come up with a limited time special offer that will reall...
