    Santa Clarita Real Estate, Closing Costs

    Closing costs for Santa Clarita real estateWhen buying Santa Clarita real estate it is important to remember closing costs.  Closing costs can add up to 2% or 3% of the home’s cost, often quite a bit of money to come up with at the closing table.  Can closing costs be reduced?  Yes.  One easy way to reduce the closing costs, if the seller is willing, is for both parties to share closing costs or the seller take all of the closing costs, whatever can be negotiated in the contract.

    Another way to cut back on closing costs for your new Santa Clarita property is to apply for a no point loan.  Points cost money, money that needs to be brought to the closing table, and while a higher interest loan may cost more monthly, if a buyer doesn’t have a lot of extra cash a no point loan can be a good way of reducing up front costs.

    In the same vein, shop around for a no fee loan.  A no fee loan also may carry a higher interest rate but the initial savings may be worth it.

    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.
