    Santa Clarita Real Estate, Being Prepared Important First Step

    When it comes to buying Santa Clarita real estate being prepared is an important first step.  Time and time again it has been mentioned that getting pre-qualified for a mortgage is an important precursor to buying a Santa Clarita home, but heading into a loan officer’s office prepared is equally important.  Having your financial information readily available for a lender to examine will make the entire process of qualifying for a loan more fruitful.

    Here are some things to keep in mind:

    • Have your tax statements from the prior two or three years available.
    • Know your credit score and clean up any issues that may be on it before applying for a loan.
    • Have proof of employment and pay stubs or salary information ready to show a lender.
    • Know what you have in terms of outstanding debts, including car loans, student loans, credit card debts and whatever else you may owe.
    • Know what you have saved in savings accounts, IRA, 401, stocks, etc.

    An experienced Santa Clarita Realtor can direct you to a qualified mortgage lender, but having your information readily available is key to getting a loan started.  The more prepared you are the easier the entire process will be.  Contact us today to get started on the process of buying Santa Clarita real estate, we can help direct you to a lender and fill you in on the process of buying a home.

    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.
