    Benefits of “Valencia CA” home ownership :) The number 1 rule of buying a home

    Why not – in fact, I’d live, with my family, in any of the Santa Clarita Cities.

    We have friends, sold homes, represented buyers, and know some of the most wonderful people you can imagine. And guess what?  They live all across the Santa Clarita Valley.

    real estate protection and serviceHere is something important to relay to you. Not every neighborhood is the best fit for all people.

    This is what we advise our buyers, not matter what walk of life, race, color, creed, sexual orientation, age group, gender, religious preference, etc, always door knock those you are going to be living next to. And Do it EARLY in the Escrow Process….

    When buyers approach our team, you can bet that over 50% are law enforcement.  Active Cops, Deputies, FAM, Federal Agents, DOJ, and some other three letter acronyms that I don’t want to know anything about 🙂

    This is step one after having our clients offer accepted.

    The rule of the “finding Chatty Kathy” challenge is this. “You must take everyone that is going to be living in your home with you…”

    By this act, you are knocking in a 2X2 strategy. Two neighbors down the street, two neighbors up the street, and the two neighbors that are directly across the street, and if applicable, the two neighbors that are directly behind your home.

    That’s eight doors – eight potential door bells – and eight chances to find the nosy neighbor that will give you the intel as to who’s who in your new neighborhood.

    Start with, “Hi, we are buying that home, the one over there (make sure you point it out and have them give you acknowledgement they know which one it is).  Please tell me how you like living here?  What don’t you like about living in this neighborhood.  “Who are the “crazy” neighbors I should watch out for?”

    Try to observe their initial reaction when they came to the door. Their reaction after you told them you are not selling anything and maybe moving in, if the inspections go well etc.

    You will learn a lot about those you are going to be living next to for the next 5 years at least.

    Once you find the “Chatty Kathy”, I spoke about, you are golden and will find out the real happenings in your potential neighborhood. (unless the other 7 neighbors are telling you to watch out for the “Chatty Kathy”… 🙂

    We have more “rules” when it comes to buying a home, condo or town-home in the Santa Clarita Valley cities, or elsewhere for that matter. We talk about these with all of our clients in our Real estate crash course held in our REMAX of Valencia Offices.

    Be safe – talk soon and thank for reading the number 1 rule of buying a home.

    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.
