How to have your personal information sold while searching for foreclosures – Updated Intel

    While we have answered this question before on our Foreclosure Blog.  However, I think it is appropriate to answer it again due to a phone call I received this AM.  The caller stated he was calling from out of state and wants to fly into Los Angeles and buy some foreclosure properties.be careful where you are searching for foreclosures

    Connor, “Hello, thanks for calling the Paris911 team at REMAX, how may I help you?”

    Caller, “I found you by searching online and wondered if you can help me buy a foreclosure?”

    Connor, “Be Glad to, tell me a bit of what you had in mind?”

    Caller, “My name is Stan and I am from Oklahoma City, I wanted to buy a foreclosure as an investment in Los Angeles or there abouts.  I have 50K to spend.”

    Connor, “Fifty thousand dollars?  Are you going to want to flip this property or maintain it as a rental?”

    Caller, “as a rental”.

    Connor, “what type of structure were you looking for?”

    Caller, “a single family home.”

    Connor, “there would be nothing in that price range that would be classified as a single family residence in our local California Market.”

    Caller, “there are some on-line – 3 bedroom homes between 30 and 50k…”

    Connor, “are you looking at manufactured homes on leased land or mobile homes?”

    Caller, “No, I’m looking at the webpage that shows actual 3 bedroom homes for $49,900.”

    Connor, “what is the site you are on?”

    So this fella tells me the name of the site he is looking on.  He found it within the “sponsored” results.  He did not enter his information, he googled a second time the word foreclosures – found me and clicked to call me from my website.

    I went to the website and saw immediately that it was a lead generator for the un-knowledged searching for real estate.  It seemed to have some type of Syndication feed that was not being policed by anyone.  There were agents that had uploaded listings, apparently from Palmdale, but being advertised as being in Valencia CA.  However, even the prices were totally changed from the actual market prices.

    There was a HUGE lead capture form on the home page and I opine that they sell the public’s information to the agents that pay for the leads from their website.

    I explained to Stan that he was looking at, gave him the “true” price points of our Local Market and gave him some resources he could look at in his quest.

    The games never cease to amaze me.  How can you not get caught in crap such as this?  Get a local agent, schedule an appointment with them in their offices, and feel them out.  If they are a good fit, stay with them.

    Be Safe and here is to Searching the BEST way for real estate.

    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. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. SCVnest.com/blog is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles.
