Stupid Real Estate Questions

    Stupid real estate questionsWhat real estate related questions do we get which we think are stupid?

    After careful consideration, I have to say, as we all heard in school, “There are no stupid questions, except the one which is not asked…”

    With real estate being so dynamic, the days of you signing something without it first being explained, you not having the chance to ask questions, and it not being totally understood, are long gone.

    Or they should be!

    Some agents consider themselves worthy of your “trust”. They think you should sign anything you are presented with. Heck – “They are the consummate¬†professional aren’t they?”

    I was a cop way too long to trust any “consummate professional”, at least fully.

    There are some, which I do trust, after they have proven they are watching out for me.

    For example, there is only one car salesman I will deal with. He is who I buy all my cars from, and have for the past 10 years. Anything I need, I have his number programmed into my phone. 

    If I have someone to refer to him, I give his information willingly.

    If I hear of someone wanting to buy a Mercedes or any used car, not matter what the model, or even a different manufacture’s new car – I tell everyone to call Kaz at Mercedes of Valencia. His Cell is 818-968-1740

    He knows the other “good salesmen” and those who “you can trust” with other dealerships.

    Just like if you want to buy a home in Tampa Bay Florida, I have a connection for you.

    We never want our clients to rely on our “word”. While I consider my “word” my bond and my code, I need to keep my clients safe and need them to understand all parts of what they are getting themselves into when it comes to real estate.

    It’s a big purchase. Anything that takes 30 years to pay off – that is something you need to pay strict attention to.

    Real Estate and Car Salesmen are a dime a dozen.

    However, good ones – good “protecting and serving” types of salesmen are rare indeed.

    When it comes to going over what you are signing, there should be an extreme amount of patience exhibited by the professional presenting it.

    They should take the time to explain each part and give examples of pitfalls which could potentially reveal themselves during your transaction.

    It all starts with a meeting. Developing a game plan is the most important step you can take when it comes to buying a home, or selling one.

    We call ours “The Crash Course on Real Estate”. We explain all parts of the real estate process. From Getting a loan, hiring a qualified Paris911 Lender or Mortgage broker, to what happens at the Closing Table and when you get the keys.

    I have been around the block a few times and I hate to be sold. ¬†I want someone who is going to be on my side and not take advantage of my “limited knowledge” about their craft.

    Be safe – thanks for listening to today’s real estate broadcast. If you want to listen to past episodes or future ones – remember and you will always land on your feet.

    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.
