We are in the 8th week of 2017 and real estate could not be tighter. This is reference to the last inventory numbers for the Santa Clarita Valley Cities and the current active listings.
As you will see the restrictive housing inventory is keeping the local market within a home seller’s zone.
This week we also wrote a Santa Clarita real estate blog article for our home buyers. This was coupled with a housing real estate radio show where we spoke about what not to do when buying a home.
This article/radio show had to do with paying off a credit card within the escrow process. While you are in escrow, or after you have met with a lender for pre approval for a home loan, how paying off a credit card could harm your ability to finance real estate.
This week I wrote a Santa Clarita real estate article that mentions the pre market and coming soon real estate listings. They are one in the same and are used by real estate syndication websites in order to make money and maybe inform the public of a coming soon listing.
There aren’t any rules, except a promise for the listing to be actually “coming”. Also, in order to input a coming soon or pre market listing you must be a paying member of the real estate syndication website as a Real Estate agent.
While this seems like something which should not be allowed, it happens all day long. As far as the actual Board of Realtors, and their Multiple Listing Service system, it’s not allowed on their sites. Coming soon listings cannot be correctly vetted and cause issues in the real estate advertising and marketing venues. Pre marketing sites also create havoc amongst the home sellers and home buyers.
Open houses in real estate are a great way for the real estate agents to advertise themselves. The first viewers of an open house are typically the neighbors. Those Neighbors are “curious” and want to see how your home has been outfitted.
Within in this Santa Clarita real estate article I made sure to speak about three things you may not have known about open houses.
There are also specific ways to keep yourselves safe when wanting to view homes during open houses. Be safe and let me know if you have any questions.
Keeping up with real estate is a daily activity for me. I am always looking at the real estate inventory and also wanting to keep it real with my home sellers and buyers.
