    Buyers Go Beyond MLS based Listings in the Santa Clarita Valley

    Turning over rocks…Searching for Santa Clarita real estate out of the box

    It makes sense, look elsewhere if what you are looking for does not exist.  Or if it’s not for sale at the present time.

    We have developed something to assist our Santa Clarita real estate buyers with these “constrictive” times with regard to Santa Clarita real estate inventory.  It’s Called our One Party Show, and you can read about.

    “off market” real estate inventory

    Buyers often go beyond Santa Clarita Valley  listings to find a home. Our local SCV Real estate news is revealing shrinking inventories of homes around our cities and the nation, which leaves many would-be buyers feeling as if they have to make sacrifices and accept buying a home that they are not crazy about.

    Other SCV buyers are getting creative, locating a home they want and making an offer, regardless of whether or not the home is actually for sale.

    We have broken into the “off market” and “one party showing” presentations.  We also want buyers to know the MLS based inventory is not their last stop.  There are other options as well, it just depends on the creativity of the Santa Clarita real estate team you are working with.

    Interest Rates are Still Low…

    The biggest hurdle facing buyers today is the fact that they do not want to miss the boat on low(er) rates. At the same time, buying a Santa Clarita Valley home for the sake of getting low rates simply does not make sense.

    If Santa Clarita inventory is low in an area and an acceptable home is tough to find then buyers have three choices: to be patient and wait for an acceptable home to come on the market; to buy a home that doesn’t quite fit the bill, or to search for the ideal home that is not currently listed.

    Local Realtors Run Real Estate

    The best plan of attack is to contact your Santa Clarita Valley REALTOR. Sit down and discuss with him/her what your ideal home would be, where it would be located and what your criteria are. An experienced and knowledgeable SCV REALTOR can navigate your local market, utilize existing contacts and negotiate on your behalf. Patience and education will make the home buying process easier.

    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.
