    Shadow Inventory Rumors

    It’s easy to write something that knee jerks people into talking about it. Such is the case with Shadow Inventory.

    This is the term that is used to talk about some “secret” distressed real estate that is going to hit the market causing advantages to real estate buyers of the world.

    These “advantages” are usually in the “price” as they pertain to real estate listings and the home prices.

    While you can see we have some “shadow” inventory in the Santa Clarita Valley. There is no means enough units that will cause this current market harm.

    Prices will be steadily increasing in value with stagnant points throughout the rest of this year and into next.

    The next time you hear “shadow” inventory and then someone wants you to give up who you are – be careful!

    As you can see – there are homes and properties that are in some semblance of distress.  Contact my Team when you are ready for us to take the helm and assist you with your real estate needs.

    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.
