    There are many common home issues, knowing how to recognize them and what to do with them are important aspects of home ownership. In a strange way your home talks to you, your senses capable of picking up its unique language if they are awake. From the obvious unique smell of a gas leak to the sound of a running toilet that won’t turn off, your home and its parts let you know what’s wrong, the important thing is not to wait too long before taking care of the problem at hand.

    The main veins of a house are electrical and plumbing. Flickering lights and popping fuses are a definite cry for help, as are knocking pipes and leaky faucets. A simple call to a plumber or an electrician can save further headaches and heartaches and diagnose your home’s problems before the situation gets worse.

    Encasing the internal organ of your home is its shell, the walls roof and windows. Cracks in the ceiling or paint bubbling from the walls could spell water or dampness issues. If the problem isn’t obvious call a professional to diagnose, maintaining your home’s structure and foundation is instrumental to its long term health.

    It is extremely important to upkeep a home in order to preserve the investment. While repairs can appear costly at times, avoiding repairs can be much more costly in the long run.

    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.
