Selling homes in Santa Clarita Valley with Mello Roos

    Santa Clarita Mello RoosHow do we sell homes with mello roos, (C.F.D’s), in the Santa Clarita Valley?

    It all comes down to good advertising and marketing.

    How do you sell anything when it comes to real estate?  You advertise and market the heck out of it.

    When it comes to selling homes with Mello Roos or CFD’s – the price point has to make sense to the buyer.

    I’d estimate in about 10 years, due to most of the new communities having mello roos or special assessments in the Santa Clarita Valley, it won’t even cause a hiccup.

    However, today – that is not the case.

    Many buyers see their budget exceeded due to the mello roos, CFD’s and special assessment taxes being part of what they have to qualify for.

    As a Santa Clarita real estate seller’s representative – it is our job to show how the mello roos and special assessments benefit the prospective home owner!

    During the past several years, since 1998, when we entered the real estate resale business, I have seen buyers which are okay with the extra taxes and those which are not.

    Our business model has us in all sorts of Southern California Communities, not just in Santa Clarita Valley. When it comes to buying property, for example, in Fontana California, for example, you can expect mello roos taxes on most of the newer construction.

    That is 1987 built and newer.

    Santa Clarita Valley has not arrived yet. That is because Stevenson Ranch California was the first Santa Clarita Valley city to start with the imposition of Mello Roos and that was in 1988ish.

    Give The SCV Cities 10 years and you will see that is a common fee when it comes to owning residential real estate in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.

    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.
