    We typically speak to sellers on our blog.  But we have found recently that we get visits on this Santa Clarita Real Estate sellers blog from Buyers too.  So hence this article.

    Never forget what Paris says about real estate, “You are not buying a pair of shoes…”

    Meaning, you are about to embark on one of the most expensive investments of your life.  Never go about it in a quick manner.  You will need to be educated and brought up to speed on any current real estate market.  That is why getting the best in Market Data for the Cities you are interested in will benefit you like nothing else.

    The second most important thing when wanting to move forward with purchasing real estate has to do with working with a local real estate expert.

    Preparing yourself to buy real estate  is an important part of the process. While it almost goes without speaking that buying a home is a big deal, the steps leading up to the decision are important. Knowing your finances inside and out, understanding what your needs are for a home, pinpointing a neighborhood, and finding a REALTOR are all part of the pre-buying puzzle.

    Locating a REALTOR is one of the most important steps before buying a home. While certainly you can call different phone numbers found from the classifieds and online searches, it is important to realize that any REALTOR you choose to work with has access to all homes that are listed for sale.

    A REALTOR can do a lot more than show homes, an experienced REALTOR will listen to your needs, pinpoint homes that suit your needs, show you the homes, write a contract when you find the right home, and follow through with the contractual elements. The REALTOR you choose to work with will be your guide throughout your real estate search and transaction.

    Take your time choosing a REALTOR that you can get along with and one you feel confident about. Ask around, do some online research, and find someone who reflects experience and knowledge.

    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.
