    During our real estate update we received a phone call from a male caller who wanted to know why he could not view and write an offer on a home that was in the “backup” offer position of escrow.

    While he did not say it so “realtor-ish” I knew what he meant.

    I said, the way the back up offer status works, you should have been able to view the home and write a “backup” offer. That is what that status is all about!

    He responded that his agent, not us, tried and the seller’s realtor told him that he could not even have us view the property. The seller is “tired and stressed” out by the entire home selling process.

    I explained, while this is not appropriate, this is not unusual.

    Many times agents will use the backup status of escrow to continue to market the property to the masses on the real estate syndication websites.

    This keeps the door open for leads from those who want to buy a the same home or a similar property.

    That is BAD business, if you are teamed up with a real estate agent or team who practices this black art of “misleading clients”, stop and contact me asap!

    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.
