    Selling your home for Free in Santa Clarita Real Estate – What is a Guarantee?

    It has been a strange last few years in the Santa Clarita Real Estate market.  We have seen the top of the Real Estate market, where prices were on the rise, in some cases, $30,000 in a single month.  Everyone had thought, as we did, that the market would continue to increase forever.  (hindsight being 20-20)  However, thanks to -anyone you can blame, place their name, title or trade affiliation here-, we saw the Real Estate market collapse.Santa Clarita Real Estate Guarantee

    Now the Short Sale World is alive and well.  At the beginning of the collapse – one had to talk to a Real Estate agent with more than 20 years of Real Estate experience to explain what the “Short Pay” was – as it was called back in the day.

    Today, the banks have adjusted, the government has intervened, and there are a miracuouls number of Law Firms that want to help you with your Short Sale property.  All either want to represent you with your short sale, obtain for you a Loan Modification or Principal Reduction.  Who can you Trust?

    Dad always said he was too poor to buy cheap things.  Guarantee’s are great, but can you guarantee their guarantee?  What does the small print contain – are you being granted some time to “think about” what you are about to sign?  Can you seek advice from others that are in the same industry?  Some will tell you that any discussion, to anyone, of their “Guarantee Sold” home model will create legal issues for you.  In fact, you cannot even speak with your mother about the contracts and marketing plan you are signing.

    Here is the bottom line, read and re-read.  If you have someone telling you that “this is your last chance”. Run away and don’t look back.  This is not your last chance when it comes to a Short Sale.  Unless your home is headed for the auction block in the coming week, which we have been able to save in some cases, this is not your “last chance”.

    How about the interesting advertisement about, “if we cannot sell your home – We will let you fire us?” I would hope so.  If the agent is upfront with you and truly gives you all of the Real Estate dynamics for the current market – you are in good shape.

    Get the facts – you are not reading a mystery novel – everything should be laid out and the largest commission reduction is not always the best option.

    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.
