    SCV Real Estate, Internet Great Starting Point

    Picture of a laptop and hand typing on the keyboardThe Santa Clarita Valley Real Estate World is available on line. If you have a realtor that you have been working with, they should have several different options, outside of themselves, that will gather the necessary data to assist you with your home selling or buying decision.

    Whether buying or selling real estate, the internet can be a great starting point and a very useful tool, but should not be the extent of where you gather all of your information.  The internet has made it incredibly easy to see what properties are for sale and what price properties are listed for.  The ability to view individual Realtor websites, get information on local real estate, and learn about real estate in general is astounding.  It is easier than ever to arm oneself with knowledge, the important thing is to know the difference between true and false.

    Many listings found online portray photos and videos, some of which don’t do a home justice and some of which can be utterly misleading.  Having physical contact with a home, walking through it and seeing in pluses and minuses is still a very important part of a real estate transaction.

    Likewise, when selling a home don’t just depend on a real estate website to price your home.  A competent real estate professional is in touch with the local market, knows what is selling, can provide accurate comps and issue a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) which will detail what your individual house should be listed at.  Getting a few opinions in this case is a wise idea.

    The internet is an invaluable tool for sellers and buyers but not all information should be taken as the gospel.  An experienced Realtor, experienced lender, experienced inspector, and possibly even an experienced lawyer, are instrumental in completing successful real estate transactions.

    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. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. SCVnest.com/blog is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles.

      I had been surfing the internet and found this posting – The thing I like about your Home Search is the fact I can see all of the listings and more when I make the map go closer to the ground. It seemed easy – and after I saw the value – I had no problem registering so I can get emails with what I want. I’ll be contacting you soon and Thanks – James
