Dropping the soap when searching for homes online

    home search online for real estateForeclosures and More. What do you think about those “too good to be true” deals you find online?

    I’m sure you had someone tell you, or I’m going to tell you now, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is…”

    It has been really hard to deal with some of the online games being proliferated by some of the online real estate syndication websites.

    Today, we spoke about the real estate short sales and short pays where the agent have undercut Fair Market Value by a Huge Margin.

    The homes and real estate listings for sale in the Santa Clarita Valley, some are not what they appear. When it comes to short sales, due to the “exclusionary” rule within the short sale listing agreements, the listing agent is able to price them lower than fair market value.

    When it comes to a short sale and the concerns of the short sale seller – hiring the “right agent”, who has their (the seller’s), best interest at heart is paramount.

    A short sale seller may only get one chance to short sell their home. The bank may only approve the first offer and not entertain others. This happens more often than not and has created havoc with some of the short sale games which are played by some “real estate agents” in it for themselves

    How about you real estate buyers in the world?  We did a posting this morning about the Grant and Rebate Programs being offered for home buyers in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities and within the San Fernando Valley.

    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.
