Are you actually finding all of the real estate listings

    When searching online, some of the real estate websites are playing you. They are giving you information that is no longer relevant.

    Find out what your home is worth

    This applies to the real estate listings they are showing you when you are on their websites.

    The way in which to verify what you are looking at is the actual listings is to use a Real Multiple Listing Service Search. However, when you do so, you may never go back to those other real estate search systems.

    The Multiple Listing Service is the location and the feed provided by the Local Board of Realtors.

    If the system is functioning optimally, you will see those listings updated in the system every 7 to 10 minutes.

    There are three categories for the Real Estate listings that you are going to see on the Multiple Listing Service and they don't include the “off market” status which is the real estate syndication website's hook!

    Active – Those real estate listings that are actually for sale now, presently and currently.

    Backup – Those real estate listings that are in escrow, but where the seller's would like an additional offer to have in case the accepted offer falls out.

    Pending – The real estate listings where the seller would not like any additional offers or viewings, where they are quite sure the offer they have received is going to make it to the finish line. (some syndication websites show this status as being active and for sale)

    These are the three primary statuses within the online channels and on the Multiple Listing Service. Try

    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.
