As the Santa Clarita Housing market turns

    Find out what your home is worthThe current Santa Clarita real estate and housing market are not without their own fair share of drama.

    Today’s drama comes in the way of the sellers wanting to sell some of the listings at more than the appraisers agree they are worth, this creates “drama” between the real estate buyers that have paid for an appraisal.

    During the home buying process, there are a couple of items you cannot have refunded(without a pass), if you decide to cancel the real estate transaction.

    Home Inspection Fee and the Appraiser’s fee.

    Sometimes the Lender may show you favor by giving you credit towards another if the property does not appraise. However, you need to negotiate this up front.

    Or, if your real estate agent made the introduction to their lender, and you are using them, maybe your real estate agent has some “credit” to have the lender extend to you a “pass”, an additional appraisal?

    It does not hurt to ask.

    Low Appraisal Options

    You have options if the appraisal fails to come in at value. You can cancel the deal. You can come up with the difference. The seller can reduce their price. You and the seller can negotiate the difference.

    Four options and each needs to be thought about carefully.

    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.
