    Searching for Real Estate in Palmdale with a local Real Estate agent may not be wise…

    Before you start telling your fellow Realtors “Get a Rope…”  You are most likely misunderstanding this Blog Article.

    Multiple Boards for Real Estate listings

    If you are a buyer interested in purchasing a home in the area of Northern Los Angeles County known as the Antelope Valley, make sure your real estate agent has access to the CARETS real estate search systemHow to search for homes that are for sale

    Reason being – GAVAR, which is also known as the Greater Antelope Valley Association of Realtors, is a bit stingy with their MLS data.  It almost makes sense for the agents that are from Brokerages, not central to the Antelope Valley, to buy memberships.  They do so in order to get the listings and their data for their clients that wish to purchase real estate in Palmdale, Lancaster and the other North Los Angeles County Cities.

    Reverse the Roles

    However, let us talk about the “Visa Versa” scenario.  For the GARAR Real Estate agent to join the Southland Regional Assocition of Realtors (SRAR) would not be likely.  The fees are greater and most agents from the AV don’t list homes too far outside of their Board of Realtors’s Reach.

    Reverse the Role’s once again.  The agents in the SRAR do take listings in the Antelope Valley.  Some of those agents are not members of GAVAR, so the listing lives in a board that is cut off from GAVAR.  Therefore, the GAVAR agents do not see those listings.

    “Those Listings” from the SRAR are populating the Real Estate Syndication Websites.  So, a client searching for real estate in Palmdale or Lancaster will find others that their GAVAR real estate agent has not.  However, those websites are not updated as frequently as we would like.  Click here to read a bit more information that pertains to some of the real estate syndication websites.

    How do you SEARCH GAVAR the right way?

    Recap:  When you are working with a Real Estate from the Antelope Valley who is a member of GAVAR only, make sure they have access to the listings that are on the re-sale market in the other surrounding Multiple Listing Service systems and Boards of Realtors.

    We have had several agents from the Greater Antelope Valley that will email me to send them the MLS pages for listings that are in our Main Board of Realtors that those agents do not have access to.

    Below is that feed of which I spoke.  The CARETS listings that are within the Southland Regional Association of Realtors.

    Some of the agent with the following listings may be members of GAVAR, like us.  That would allow them to place each of the listings below into both of the MLS Board Systems.  However, most are not.

    Be Safe and get good advice.

    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.
