The Top three reasons to get educated when wanting to buy real estate

    real estate education connor macivorWe have something we have called our crash course on real estate since our humble beginnings in real estate. During our crash course, we take a person who is wanting to utilize me and my representation services, and educate them.

    There are many items we cover, but the primary reason for our Crash course in real estate is due to these top three reasons.

    Educating the Real Estate buyer – Basics

    • What should a buyer be looking out for when searching for homes online?
    • Where are the best deal to be found with any real estate market?
    • What about Foreclosures and Bank Owned homes?
    • Are those “special deal” real estate websites really being upfront?

    Educating the Real Estate buyer – Intermediate

    • What is the difference between types of real estate lenders?
    • How can I be assured my bank is giving me the best loan?
    • What about my Credit Union, are they really on my side?
    • Where do I see what my interest rate will be and can that change?
    • How much does it cost to buy a home and am I having to pay my Realtor?

    Educating the Real Estate buyer – Advanced

    Before I get into a few of the questions we cover during our real estate crash course in our offices or via the telephone, I will say this is the part of the course which gives most other Realtors and the real estate lending world, the most heartburn with our team. I’ll clarify that the heartburn is most experienced by those who are not up front with their clients, here it goes.

    • How to get a less than full price offer accepted?
    • How to buy home and have the seller pay your closing costs?
    • Is there a way to get lenders to compete for your loan business?
    • What is the real game with those online, Top Agent, Realty Review, Real Estate referral and Real Estate lender competing websites?
    • How to use your new “savvy power” to leverage real estate when wanting to buy a home?
    • When is it time to Fire your Real Estate Agent or Your real estate lender?

    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.
