    We we attend For Sale by Owner homes in the Santa Clarita Valley, we usually find the main reason came down to the prices associated with Commission Costs.  Some will choose to employ the services of a discount real estate company that will place the home, condo or town-home on the Multiple Listing Service only.  However, in that case, there would still be a commission offered to represent the Home Owner/Seller.

    Some of the Santa Clarita Homeowners will want to do all parts of the Real Estate Transaction themselves.

    I will put this on the table before I get into some of the more “dangerous” aspects of choosing the “For Sale by Owner” method.

    Did you know that Real Estate companies are bonded, branded and have back up by legal professionals? It is not about you not being able to do it yourself.  It might come down to what Value you can give yourself by personally Selling your Home.  There is Cost, which is a one time thing – Then there is Value, which lasts much longer.

    When you have a team of Agents in your employ – Each one a member of the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors and members of the Local (enter your city name here _________) Board of Realtors – you have a HUGE network of people working to sell your home.  Where are people searching for homes – With their Agents and over 89% online before they leave their home, that’s where…

    Let’s Talk Legal Issues.  We had a client that we sold their Agua Dulce Home a couple of years ago.  He was retiring from the PD and headed to Oklahoma where his family was waiting his arrival.  He had his sights on a home in Oklahoma and we needed to have both properties, the sale of his home in California, close at the same time (concurrently) as the home he was buying in Oklahoma.  No offence against the Real Estate procedures in Oklahoma – but do you know there were only three pieces of paper he needed to sign to buy it?  I thought this was flabbergasting – Because if you see how many pieces of paper you need to sign to buy or sell a home in CA, – NOT TO MENTION SELL – WHETHER YOU DO IT YOURSELF OR WITH AN QUALIFIED REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL – Each disclosure, contract and addendum in California originated out of a Law-Suit or was established by the Code of Ethics by the National Association of Realtors.

    Agents Deal with Escrow, Title, Pest Inspection, Requests for Repairs, and much more, not to mention every single real estate transaction is covered by Insurance and a Team of Legal professionals that not only protect the principal (the seller or buyer of a home), but the Real Estate company as well. I don’t like Insurance necessarily – Until I need it.  Then I wish I would of had more coverage.

    Advertising is HUGE – Exposure to the “right” buyers is MONSTROUS – Protection is PRICELESS!

    It does give Value for you to hire a professional when you are talking about selling one of the biggest, if not the biggest, investments of your Life!  If you must go down the road of attempting to sell your Santa Clarita home as a For Sale by Owner, Make sure you don’t go about it blind – Give our Team a Call and we will set a For Sale by Owner appointment and help in any way we are able!

    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.
