Falling in love at first glance… With a Santa Clarita Home????

    There have been many songs and wars attributed to love 🙂 – I think, with regard to the relationships that last for years, most started as a, “Love from the first moment I saw you”, thing.

    I suppose I am a hopeless romantic.  When I was a new police officer with the LAPD, I went into a Los Angeles Police Department realtor websiteBakers Square restaurant, while I was fresh out of the police academy, and a gorgeous woman waited on me, my training officer and another Training Officer and his Boot(rookie cop, as I was).

    I’ll never forget, I ordered Lasagna, French Fries and a Sprite.  I don’t even like sprite…  I was smitten  Three Months later we were married.  That was July 29, 1991.

    Did I mention Paris, my Wife, has the patience of a saint and a fortitude of a 3″ thick piece of tempered iron?

    Let me put it this way, If I had married me back in the day, I’d probably would have stuck it out for 1  year max 🙂

    First impressions of any Santa Clarita Valley home means everything when it is your intension to sell one. In fact, if you don’t make a good first impression you greatly diminish your chances of getting buyers through your front door. Now, what you have to focus on is where potential buyers are getting their first impressions.

    We know this because at REMAX of Valencia we operate a Team of 6 known as The Paris911 Team. Three full time buyers agents that work showing buyers and hunting for the BEST Santa Clarita real estate listings for each one constantly give feedback via our “paris911 staff” meetings.  The story is the same – “they fell in love with the home when I stopped the car…”

    Most first impressions are made online these days which means the images of your home should be exceptional. Your Agent’s personal and brand internet presence should be even better!  

    While many choose to save money by taking photos on their own the reality is that quality photos matter. If you want to captivate potential buyers your should make sure that your photos pop and that they capture your home’s finest attributes.

    A recent article, “20 Seconds for Love at First Sight”, from the Wall Street Journal acknowledges the tracking of the eye and how long potential buyers are willing to spend looking at a property. The article suggests that if your first photo doesn’t capture someone in 2 seconds then you have lost your shot. If you don’t capture a potential buyer’s interest quickly your property most likely will not see him enter your front door. Take a good hard look at your real estate agents marketing and see how you can increase your opportunity.

    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.
