    The best way is to use a system, as the one above, to determine value within the confines of Fair Market Value.

    Most of the online systems, the estimates of value, are just that, estimates. These online systems of valuation for residential real estate fall short because they do not give you accurate evaluations.

    They are not connected directly to the Multiple Listing Service, which creates issues with the accuracy of the home valuation. Their data is not as accurate as the MLS. My experience with those online estimates of value have shown properties coming back at much lower than the current fair market value. This has occurred for homes I have researched for my sellers in the Santa Clarita Valley and within the Greater Los Angeles housing market.

    My System for Finding what your Santa Clarita Valley home is worth, is connected directly to the Multiple Listing Service which comes from the local Boards of Realtors.

    However, the first step in selling your Santa Clarita home does not stop there. It also takes me putting together another evaluation which is lengthy and contains all of the data I have compiled to give you the most accurate estimate of value. This report is emailed directly to you after you have given your information to me to obtain the Fair Market Value of your Santa Clarita Valley home.

    After that step is fulfilled, I will reach out to you to get any “changes”, “remodeling’, “additions”, or “improvements” you have completed on the home you want me to sell.  This data is also going to be valuable for you getting what your home is going to sell for in today’s current real estate market.

    This is the time when I give you other market info. Is the Santa Clarita Valley, (or fill in your Southern California City’s name here), in a Sellers Market? Meaning, are there a lot of buyers with few sellers. Sellers are able to capture a premium for their homes in a Seller’s market with not having to inject concessions.

    Maybe the current Santa Clarita market, at the time of your request, is in the Buyers Market realm. This means there is a plethora of real estate inventory and a low home buyer demand. Buyers are having a lot of homes to choose from and only those more “negotiable” sellers are going to be able to offload their real estate.

    This is all covered in our Santa Clarita Home Valuations and is your best first step to selling your Santa Clarita Valley home.

    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.
