My prediction is that as we get closer to Summer homes priced below $450,000 will sell quickly when priced right. Multiple offers will be the norm for prime locations of Valencia and Stevenson Ranch and other communities will also garner offers at an alarmingly fast pace.
Homes in the higher prices at the $800,000 range will begin to sell and the home owners will only put these homes on the market if they are highly motivated and plan on listing at a price that is competitive. There will be much less competition for these homes and a home owner should take all good offers from qualified buyers seriously. There won't be as many multiple offers or bidding wars in this price range but there are many buyers looking for a quality home price right. A pool a view will really help this priced home sell quicker. Small lots and homes in lesser locations will sit longer than hoped.
Home buyers are looking for move in ready homes so it is essential to have the homes show well!
Again, if you'd like more specific answers that are useful, I would need to know more about your specific situation. Please do not hesitate to call or email to follow up. I've been selling Real Estae in the Santa Clarita Valley for over 20 years and I can tell you our market is fickle. Sometimes there is a huge difference just by looking at one street versus another. So no good data can be put together without a more complete understanding of what your needs are.
