Real Estate buyers, you may want to listen up. Today we did one of our Santa Clarita real estate daily shows that gave intel about the current state of the markets in the Greater Los Angeles and Santa Clarita Valley cities. Paris911.com/Reports
We also covered the number one mistake made by real estate buyers.
Not Door knocking your “potential” neighbors doors before you get too far into escrow.
After you get your offer accepted, it's time to put on your comfortable shoes, gather everyone that is going to be living with you in the home you are buying, and start pounding the pavement.
Think of yourself as an detective. You want to take your entire clan and start visiting the neighbors. If you are buying a single family home, at the very least you will want to knock on the homes on either side. You will want to visit the home to your homes rear. The three homes in front, across the street would also be a good idea.
You are looking for something or someone you cannot live around. Someone that answers the door wearing a hood that was prominately wore in the south and loves to burn crosses maybe something you won't want to deal with.
Living next to your X wife/husband/partner/girlfriend/boyfriend, etc. Living in close proximity to someone that you had a restraining order against back in the day, where the wound has not healed.
You never know who you are going to find in the neighborhood you are moving within. Just make sure you, as a real estate buyer, complete this critical step when it comes to buying a home.
This does not remove the necissity of you contacting the local law enforcement agency to see what they think about the neighborhood. They will be totally honest with you when you ask them question and give them the property address.
Megans Law – checking for sexual predators, a must and most states have this as an online resource.
If you are buying a condo or a townhome – the same rules apply and are even more critical. You could be sharing walls, ceilings and floors with others. You want to make sure you get a “feeling” for who you are living around, sharing common paths with, and parking spaces.
BTW, if you are renting, this is also a great thing you can to to make sure you next 1 or 2 are going to be as comfortable, at least at the start, as possible.
