    Overpricing a home can be painful – even more so when that’s your Realtor’s advice

    Does this make sense?  In real estate we call it “buying a listing”, it does not mean a home buyer buying a sellers listing – it means an “Agent” over promising a seller by securing their listing by overpromising and underdelivering on price.

    You may have a dozen realtors that tell you your home is worth 500k – then you that one, he may be dressed a little bit better, he may have just a little more sparkle in his eye and a more springy of a step – he tells you that he can sell your home for $550,000.

    sell my home guaranteedWho do you choose?  Most of us would choose the professional that said he can deliver on a $550k price.  Maybe he knows something the other Real Estate agents don’t.

    Unfortunately, it typically is not that they know more than the other real estate agents, it’s because they just bought your listing.

    One More Thing – You have heard about those “Guarantee’s” that are making their rounds with regard to listing agents advertising them.

    Things like “Home Sold Guarantee”, “We will sell your home guaranteed, or we will buy it”, or even “Your home sold in 59 days or we will pay you $$$…”

    If you have seen these programs being offered by agents, then you are probably looking for a real estate agent that specializes in listing real estate in the Santa Clarita Valley.

    How can other real estate agents offer such a program and a Guarantee that if my home does not sell they will buy it from me?  Watch out for the ****!!!

    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.
