New Year's Resolutions for Homeowners
Here's how to navigate the Q1 2023 real estate market - resolution style. 
Resolve not to "doom scroll" or fall into a clickbait well.
Social media conglomerates only profit when you keep scrolling and clicking - which means that the content published on those sites is often intended to incite panic and worry... so you keep reading! But the real information - the kind that can help you make a decision highly specific to your home, neighborhood, local market and goals - won't be in that article. Talk to an experienced Santa Clarita real estate agent who can talk options and share real - and recent - results. Then save your social-media time for pictures of puppies, updates on friends and posting your Wordle score. 
Resolve to fix up your home if selling is on the 2023 to-do list.
Turn-key homes that are in good condition, priced right and well marketed are still selling for substantial profit. This isn't a hint to spend tens of thousands remodeling your home - but it is a reminder that if you have home damage or significant wear, your home may sell slower - and for less. Talk to your real estate agent about what to fix now so that you can command the highest price a bit later. 
Resolve to stay flexible and positive.
Navigating market stabilization can sometimes feel stressful and uncertain. Plan on entering this market with flexibility and an open mind. That can be easier said than done - so work with a real estate professional who has the experience, connections, support team and accessibility to help you ride any waves that come your way. There are so many positives and possibilities in this market - so choose a team that can help you identify and take advantage of them all.

When your Backyard is the Ocean, Every Day is a Vacation
Beachside living isn't just for remote workers and retirees. Thanks to the proximity of Ventura County to Santa Clarita, more and more SCV families are purchasing second homes on or near the water for fast getaway fun. And - when not in use - these same properties are earning homeowners substantial vacation-rental income. 
Why Oxnard? Besides being less than an hour away from Valencia, Oxnard offers a wide variety of real estate options, including on-the-beach homes and condos, properties right on the canal with private docks and resort-style community living with coveted amenities. The local culture's chill vibe, mom-and-pop restaurants and shops and vibrant events are a big draw, too. 
From famous beaches like Silver Strand to near-year-round sunshine, you can't beat Oxnard's weather or pristine waters. And the neighbors are great - you'll see plenty of familiar faces! Each month, more Santa Clarita residents relocate or purchase vacation homes here.
