Top 10 reasons your home may not sell

    Stressed out real estate sellerSelling your home can be surprisingly time consuming and complicated. We know this because we sell several, (7+ on average), homes a month for our real estate sellers to our Real Estate buyers.

    Besides paperwork and the stress related to detaching yourselves from the home you have lived in for X amount of years, buyers will poke their noses in places that make you feel uncomfortable.

    After they tell you that your home is GREAT, the BEST they have seen and a Top Shelf presentation piece, they may offer you less than list price.

    Here is some “Sage Advice” from REMAX of Valencia CA’s Fit to Sell Series.

    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. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles. Go to to listen to their latest real estate radio broadcast.
