    I'm an investor looking for single family residences that are great deals…

    image1289315755.jpgI get this type of call at least once a day. The caller states they saw a property online and saw my contact information. Here are the questions and statements in bullet form:
    – hi, I want to buy the home you have listed for all cash.
    – I want to buy it for below market value.
    – If that home is not available, we buy single family residences in Los Angeles and Santa Clarita for between 130k and 150k. Cash deals.
    – If the home is not available, we want you to look for others for is. we are working with many hungry agents at the same time and will go with who brings us the best deal.

    Potential issues.

    1. if I could get a single family residence for 130-150k I would do it for my clients whom are going to refer me business and who have a relationship with me.
    2. if I’m going to throw myself under the bus with the bank who uses us to sell their foreclosure portfolio, it will be for a client of ours not an investment group that has loyalty to the deal not the agent.
    3. there is something called procuring cause. If someone looks at a home with another agent first before me, and I write the offer, the agent that just showed the home is entitled to a commission. I have educated our client on this topic. The investor is another story. I don’t know who he has seen properties with.

    Buyer / Broker agreements. This is a perfect scenario for this little piece of contractual paper. It creates Loyalty between the investor or investment company and us The real estate agents.

    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.
