Newhall is the southernmost and oldest community of the
Santa Clarita Valley. Named after famed businessman Henry Newhall, the area is home to the
historic William S. Hart County Park and the Pioneer Oil Refinery –
California’s oldest surviving and first commercially successful
refinery. Due to its historic significance, close proximity to the 5 and
14 freeways, and frequent use as a filming location for many movies and
television shows, property values in the area have seen a considerable
boost in recent years and are projected to continue on an upward trend.

As a result of increased home values and a substantial decrease in the
number of homes being foreclosed on or sold through short sale, the number
of homes on the market are relatively sparse. Homes on the market tend
to be snatched up pretty quickly, meaning that prospective buyers should
act quickly to stake their claim. Similarly, sellers may find themselves
in a desirable position by having several buyers competing with one another,
giving them the opportunity to receive top dollar for their property.
