    First time Santa Clarita Home Buyers

    Do you remember your first time?  Probably never with regard to real estate, if there has not been one.  I would say that you should do a few things to make your first time in real estate more memorable – and not in a Bad Way Either 🙁

    • Use a local agent – This is important, because there is accountability attached with using local resources.  Your offer’s will be Santa Clarita Lending accepted more often too!
    • Beware of listing agents – We have written extensively about this topic – it is best to have your own representative that has no ties to the seller.
    • Don’t fall for “first time buyer programs” – Not that they don’t exist, you just want to make sure they are the “real deal” and not an unfair attempt to get you to divulge your personal info.
    • Get Pre-qualified – finding out what your payments will be at certain amounts is very important.  That way you can ensure you don’t enter the world of being “mortgage poor”.  You will have a lifetime to do that!
    • Use Good Real Estate Search engines – Every Real Estate search engine that we have is local and self-updates several times per hour.  They have not been manipulated in any way to only render certain listings.

    Those are the Five Tenants of the First time home buyer. Whether you are in the Santa Clarita Valley or elsewhere – these five will keep you safe from harm.  Our primary clientele all stem from Law Enforcement and Educational professions.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to gain the trust and business of people in those lines of work?

    I’ll tell you that no “funny business” can exist when it comes to working in those Employment Circles.

    Be Safe and let us know if we can help you.

    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.
