    Santa Clarita Real Estate, Is An Appraisal Necessary

    Appraisal completed before buying Santa Clarita real estateWhen buying or refinancing Santa Clarita real estate many people wonder if it is necessary to conduct an appraisal.  An appraisal is a necessary step for the funds of a home loan to be released.  When applying for a home loan, whether buying a Santa Clarita property or refinancing a home that you already own, the lender will request an appraisal in order to make sure that the Santa Clarita property in question is worth what you are financing it for or more.  An appraisal compares similar properties in an area and values a home accordingly.

    In order to complete a Santa Clarita real estate transaction an appraiser will be contacted and typically the Realtor will be the point person between the home and the appraiser.  If the home does not appraise for the contract price there could be an issue.  A buyer can either pay the difference out of his own pocket, a seller can come down in price, or the contract becomes null and void.  The knowledge and experience of your Santa Clarita Realtor comes into play in a big way in this scenario due to the fact that having an appraisal or financing contingency in your real estate contract can protect you against a home being under-appraised.

    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.
