    Santa Clarita Multiple Listing Service and having your personal info hijacked

    When you are considering relocation from one city to another, it can create issues when the homes for sale you are finding on-line are not really for sale.

    You may be wondering how this can happen?  It has to do with the Source of the Data you are viewing.  It also has to do with the purpose of the Data being published and who it was built to serve.  It may be that you are looking at a website that shows real estate for sale for the purpose of having real estate agents join to buy leads(thereby monetizing the syndication website).  To have a real estate Searcher’s(your) personal information sent to that agent for a cost.

    If the website is savvy enough, it will also include information about how you were searching with their system.  You may have been looking for three bedroom homes in Saugus CA with private pools.  Maybe after you were done searching for the “for sale” real estate, you clicked on the “school information tab”.  Then, you may have went on to look at some demo-graphical information about Valencia CA – then repeated your home search – but this time without pools…

    You have just had your on-line habits, tracked, recorded and sold!  All with just the innocent searching for real estate on-line.  It’s kind of like this, when you are searching on-line for real estate, there are two factions – one wanting to sell your personal information to real estate agents. The other wants to sell you a home.

    Which would you rather use to search with?  The local real estate agents in the Santa Clarita Valley are mostly members of an agreement with the Boards of Realtors – their Brokers and the Internet Data Exchange, IDX.  If they spam you, you can go to their office and drag them behind the tool shed 🙂  Be Safe and we will talk with you soon!

    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.
