Preparing Your Santa Clarita CA Home For Sale, Don’t Forget Windows

    Windows are important to real estate buyersWe are blessed to be working with a multitude of real estate buyers are any given moment.  Sometimes throughout the year the “overall” buyers slow down to attend to Seasonal holidays.  That is the current season we are in at the time I’m writing this Seller Tip on our Realtor Blog for Santa Clarita Valley CA.

    While it does not get “that cold” in our neck of the woods, being within 1 hour to the beach and 1 hour to the high desert, it does change from summer and is very noticeable to the indigenous population for sure.

    When showing properties, myself, Paris or our excellent buyers agents, we always want feedback from our buyers.  What did they think of the home? What things did it have they liked? What about disliked? To make it the perfect home, what would have to be changed if money was no object? etc…

    As a real estate seller, you may be surprised to find out that windows play a big part in a buyers decision to purchase real estate.

    When preparing your Santa Clarita CA home for sale it is important not to forget your windows.  Make sure your windows are clean operable and that the screens are in place and void of holes.  Windows are the eyes of your home, they showcase any views you may have, let in light and improve ventilation.

    Most of us would prefer to be outside as much as possible, but certain times of the year can make this hard.  Windows allow us a glimpse of the outside regardless of the weather.  We can watch the sun rise, rain and snow fall, wind blowing, and leaves falling from the comfort of our homes, appreciating Mother Nature whether we are reading a story to the kids, cooking dinner, or relaxing by a fire.

    Buyers can picture themselves appreciating the view from every room in your home, and it is of the essence to show this view off as much as possible.  If you do not have a view from a particular window a window treatment could make a big difference.  An attractive fabric or perhaps a shade that lets in light but blocks and unattractive view could be in the cards. Whatever you do to prepare your home for sale just remember that windows are your home’s segue to the exterior of your home.

    Oh, and if you are not selling a home and have no intension of moving, you may want to continue reading.

    We had our start in the real estate business in 1998. For what would prove as being an exercise in futility for the first several years, we had been looking for a system that we could utilize for our buyers of real estate and those that only wanted to monitor the real estate they owned.

    Not monitor as in security.  Monitor as in “home value”.  Not like a property value proposal that a real estate agent would prepare if you called to list your home.  But like a system that will keep you updated once a month with exactly what is happening in your specific neighborhood with the homes that are like yours.

    We had it built, we made it free and without obligation nor spam.  Here is our SCV – Southern California Value – Property monitoring system – enjoy!

    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.
