December 22, 2012 – Santa Clarita foreclosure intel by REMAX’s Paris911 Team

    Ah, foreclosures.  They are all the buzz today and have been since we had started working in the real estate representation field back in 1998. In a healthy real estate market, there are about 1% of the homes that are being offered for sale that are Foreclosures – the “bank owned” type.  Today’s current real estate market gives us about 20-30%.  The rest of our market is over 55% short sales (pre foreclosures) and the rest are standard sales. (data compiled today, 12-22-2012, for purposes of this Blog Post on the SCV foreclosure blog)

    Buying a foreclosure is going to be dependent on three things you, as a foreclosure buyer, need to be aware of.Foreclosure and Bank owned experts in SCV

    • Striking fast – While most banks are giving a certain amount of time before “offer number one” is looked at – typically 7-14 days – It does not harm a buyer to get the latest listings and view them quick.  There could be that one “bank” or that one Asset Manager that needs to get their numbers higher that will take the first offer submitted, if only within hours of that listing hitting the market.
    • Consider Financing – banks love Cash.  The next thing the REO selling world loves is 20% down payments or greater, those are conventional loans.  Followed by the less than 20% down conventional loan, then onto FHA (3.5%) down, and VA (lower down yet).  The reason why the bank loves cash is typically appraisal is never an issue with a buyer purchasing the home.  The conventional appraiser is typically less stringent than the VA appraiser.  For Foreclosure Sellers – the less critical an appraiser is, the more money they will make.
    • Inspection Time-frames – sweetening the deal – Ask your real estate agent about constricting your inspection time frames on the first offering you are going to make.  It may set your offer apart enough from the others to get yours accepted without a counter offer.  You can reduce your inspection time frames form the “contract allowed” 17 days to 7.  This will show the Foreclosure entity that you are serious.

    When approaching bank owned and foreclosure inventory, to set yourself apart and to get the attention of the bank (foreclosure owner), could mean the difference between you winning what you want and not.  Ask your local Santa Clarita foreclosure expert what they think your best plan of attack should be.  Don’t forget the value in the Game Plan with regard to real estate.  It will pay in the long run when you invest 45 minutes up front with your Real estate agent in their offices, exploring the market, your desires and your agent’s working practices.

    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. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. SCVnest.com/blog is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles.
