    Investors cooling their jets

    Apparently, there are enough people in the “real estate resale” market and investor types to keep pressing prices against the wall and those that are comfortable waiving their appraisal contingencies.

    One of the issues with waiving the appraisal contingencies is that you may forfeit your deposit if you decide to back out when the appraisal comes in lower than you had expected.

    Appraisal Guidelines are still in play

    This happens because some of the real estate sellers are wanting to get more money than the appraisers say their homes are worth.

    That is very typical “human nature”. I would want the most for my home as I’m sure you would too. However, when people are asked to waive contingencies that are in place to protect them in the Santa Clarita real estate venue, that is when it starts to become a problem.

    Make sure you know what you are getting into

    While, most agent explain this process as it should be and emphasize to their clients that if they are uncomfortable with any part of the real estate dealing, they should get out, some agents do not.

    Some agents tell their clients everything will be okay in order close the transaction. This is quite disheartening and has the world view of real estate agents somewhere close to whale blubber.

    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.
