Simi Valley Wood Ranch Home Sales 2006 – July 2010

Simi Valley Bank Owned Property The tables below breakdown the sales for single-family detached homes in Simi Valley’s notable Wood Ranch community.I’ve purposely not mixed the Wood Ranch condo-town home market with this data as the diversity and size, types of complex and amenities are a very broad range for attached homes –  skewing the averages.

The same pattern is seen in the Wood Ranch community as in others I have looked at in Simi Valley. In May of 2009 the market hit a low, which may prove to be our market bottom. As encouraging as that news is, it doesn’t mean that our struggling real estate market is in a full recovery.

A recent article from DSNews.com discusses how distressed properties will impact the market into 2012.

loss mitigation efforts like the Treasury’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) that are preventing another debilitating flood of foreclosures from hitting the market. Although HAMP and its private sector counterparts are likely simply delaying the inevitable and “prolonging the pain,” as Barclays analysts put it, such programs support a better outcome for the industry than one big market-shattering shock, they say.

The number of homes  with financing issues that will influence the market is still very large and will take a number of years to get through.  A quick glance at the public record reveals that  Simi Valley’s Wood Ranch community has approximately 54 properties that are in the process of foreclosure. Less than half that number has an auction date set for the property. Looking at Long Canyon as an example on one tract in Wood Ranch shows 9 properties in pre-foreclosure and 4 additional properties set with auction dates.

While the banks are much more cooperative with short sales and loan modifications compared to the last two years, these troubled homes and the ones that will be added to the list this year and next remain a negative influence on Simi Valley Wood Ranch home values.
