Santa Clarita: The Ideal American City

Santa Clarita is located 32 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, and seven miles from the LA border. It is made up of four basic communities: Valencia, Saugus, Canyon Country, and Newhall. While the town has grown significantly in recent years, it still has that great small town look and feel that so many people enjoy without being isolated from communities, necessities, and attractions- and with its many affordable housing opportunities and over 70 miles of picturesque walking and biking trails, (known as paseos), it is an ideal place to call home.

A safe and family friendly community, Santa Clarita features many hiking trails, convenient car pool lanes, outdoors recreation opportunities, three fine colleges, and award winning “Blue Ribbon” primary, secondary, and high schools. Trains leave the town each morning with destinations in Burbank and Los Angeles, making the daily commute enjoyable and easy. Outbound travelers can take a train from Los Angeles to Santa Monica.

FHA Homes & VA Homes

Available housing is affordably priced between $300,000 and $1,000,000 in most neighborhoods. More expensive homes are available in the multi-million dollar range for move up buyers, but the majority of Santa Clarita neighborhoods are reasonably priced on average in the range of $575,000.

First time home buyers and veterans can qualify for many state and federal assistance programs when seeking affordable housing in this one of a kind region. FHA and VA programs are specially designed to boost home ownership and build communities by providing opportunities to qualified applicants. These forward-thinking initiatives have made it possible for many people to settle down, raise families, and embark on careers in this enchanting part of the Golden State.
