If schools are a concern I would check into which elementry as well. If you are buying a new KB home its my understanding the kids are rerouted to Canyon Country to go to school which I would be concerned.
If you are buying in the new Shappel or in the St. Claire tract its my understanding the elementry school would be Plum Canyon.
There is many neighborhoods within the Plum Canyon area. Some have a very high mello roos, some have HOA, and some have neither.
I hope you are working with a local agent that knows the area, schools, and best resale. Also I would look into other areas out here closer to the 126 for commute.
Lennar is building homes in the West Creek area of Valencia. That neighborhood has an awesome Charter school and its minutes to the 126.
Many buyers don't realize that you can have an agent represent you when buying new construction as long as they register you on the first visit. I have represnted many clients and negotiated things they would not know to ask for. If you do not have an agent please call me to interview for the job.
Best of luck if I don't hear from you.
ReMax of Santa Clarita
It's a pretty commute from Oxnard to Santa Clarita and not hectic. The 126 to Newhall Ranch Road to Bouquet Canyon to Plum. I live right off of Bouquet and it's not a bad drive. There is an excellent school right in that community and High Schools right around the corner. (all our schools are award winning) Plum Canyon will turn into Whites Canyon and your major roads from there would be Bouguet, Soledad, which now has a Newhall Ranch Road connection, Via Princessa and then the 14 freeway tot he 5 freeway. This is a beautiful and fantastic place to live. :)
I would be more than happy to give you more information. You can click on my website and search for homes in that area.
Looking foward to helping you find you next home.
