Delayed Financing will Give You the Edge You Need
Real Estate inventory is still relatively low in the Santa Clarita Valley. Many eager homebuyers are routinely disappointed after having their offers rejected, in many cases due to loan financing contingencies.

Sound familiar?

It all boils down to competition. All-cash buyers have a better chance of standing out from competing bids and getting the home at a lower price, since their offer isn't contingent on financing.

"Many banks continue to require a six-month waiting period before you can apply for a cash-out REFINANCE."

Recent surveys have shown that approximately 15 percent of all transactions in the SCV were purchased by all-cash buyers. The number nationally is much higher (>30 percent). If you're in the enviable position to pay "all cash" for a home, but don't want to part with your cash cushion, we have a perfect solution.

Our Delayed Financing loan allows you to pay cash for the home and then turn around and recover your cash right away. Many banks continue to require a six-month waiting period before you can apply for a cash-out refinance.

Homeowners who have taken advantage of this program have been able to regain liquidity immediately. Many others have also turned around and used the cash to purchase another property.

Fall is the New Spring for Home Buying
Next to spring, fall is the busiest real estate time of the year. Although you can buy and sell houses at any time, the fall real estate market offers undeniable benefits to home buyers. If you are shopping for a home this fall and don't want to miss out on a great deal, it's a good idea to explore the possibility of pre-qualifying for a loan, to know what type of house you are looking for and what you can realistically afford to buy. While America's confidence in the housing market is growing, inventory levels remain at record lows and home prices are now on the upswing.

Santa Clarita-based Williams Homes confirms that with the growing demand for new housing, the company has stepped-up its construction plans. "A lot of people see Labor Day as the beginning of a new year, when the summer holidays are over and everyone goes back to school and back to work," says Daniel Faina, director of sales and marketing for Williams Homes. "Buyers actively looking to purchase a new home are always encouraged to pre-qualify for a mortgage because it suggests to us that they're serious about buying a home and allows our sales counselors to guide them to a residence that suits their individual needs and financial picture."
