Searching by Neighborhood – Most of the larger real estate websites don’t pay strict attention to a neighborhood. In fact, they don’t live there either. They are not local real estate agents, they don’t provide any protection nor security when it comes to buying a home.
These are the three tiers that we spoke about on the audio recording. We have our Santa Clarita real estate resources presented on the front page of The Paris911 Website. We have also installed two different IDX – Internet Data Exchange search engines. They both contain all of the current listings that are on the market for sale in the Santa Clarita Valley cities. Search at will – the reason we have two is because we want our clients to search with the engine that is the best fit for them.
- What homes are selling for: Resource for this one is located by heading over to the MacBoX at Paris911 dot com – type in the world “SOLD” into it. You can go to a neighborhood you are interested in – then zoom in to view – we have rendered only 6 months of sales history – which is how appraisers would look at establishing value when you get to that point within escrow. Click here to access the sold real estate inventory.
- What homes fit where you can afford: Qualifying for a certain amount is wonderful – but that amount may be more than you can afford. That is why you need to have a sit down with those close with you or yourself and establish your “line in the sand”. The line as far as price that you will not go above, not matter what the situation. Once you have that number, which may be less that you qualify for with a lender, then it’s time to start the searching. Head over to Paris911 dot com. Click here to have us find you a lender and prep you for that meeting.
- How to find the best deal possible: Know what you are looking at on-line. Are you finding listings that are not really for sale? Are you looking at websites that are intent on selling your personal and private information to real estate agents? Some of the real estate internet sites out there publish homes that appear to be for sale – but aren’t. Heck, agents would pay a lot of money for your personal info. “consider yourselves loved” 🙂 However, stay local when you search. Search only with a local real estate agents website outfitted with an IDX driven search engine – look for the “pre foreclosure listings” then look for the agents that have a “method” on how to approach those properties for their buyers in order to buy them. Click here for an example of our one party show.
At the end of the day you are only as successful as the agent you choose. If you are looking for a real estate agent to represent you with buying or selling a home. We would love to interview for the job and we promise to always hold your choice in the highest of regards.
