    63 percent of new homes are sold by real estate agents other than the builder's

    How exciting is this, something I gleaned on line this am published by Inman News as they were talking about certain MLS boards publisizing new home listings in their MLS.

    While, the New Santa Clarita home builders, strike gold and get new home listing entered into the local Multiple Listing Services – it is more the exception than the rule.

    My team of new home agents are well versed in the “how to” and the “methods of operation” of the many new home tracts and the different new home builders.

    I think the most interesting thing about the 63% statistic is the fact we see that on a local level too. When someone has a realtor – a good realtor they trust and that has their best interest at heart, it's hard to make a real estate move without them by their side.

    We have also seen that our New Home Agents get information prior to it being publisized because of their relationships with the agents that represent the new home builders in the various Santa Clarita new home communities.

    Case and Point. Agent L (works for me), has a buyer that needs to buy a new home at one of the Valencia new Home tracts. Agent G (works for me), was showing a new home clients of ours earlier this am and was told by the new home center agent they just had a new home fall out. Agent G happened to remember what Agent L said in our meeting this week about needing that particular new home type. The deal happened and I am elated to see our Team Advantage.

    Real estate is still a relationship based business. That is why the business has not been able to be overcome by the various real estate syndication websites and the “web only” brokerages.

    There is way too much at steak, far too much money, and too much variation from one home to another.

    The local markets vary, the individual city markets vary and the various elevations vary within each neighborhood.

    Be safe – search well and let us know when you are ready to approach the new housing centers. Paris911.com/newhometours

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.

      Having a Santa Clarita Real Estate agent that knows the method of operation or (MO) is important especially when it comes to new home development. I know you can negotiate terms, price and freebies better than if someone walked into a new home builder on their own. I always make sure to not sign in so I can bring you to represent me when if i go back.
