Total Drama Real Estate and Housing Market Update

    Find out what your home is worthOne of the most interesting things about this market comes in the way of our additional inventory. I have seen numbers as high as 65%, related to the additional inventory between now and the numbers reporting for January 2014. (increased)

    This is turning the local Santa Clarita and San Fernando real estate markets on their heads, because sellers are finding the additional real estate and housing market inventory painful.

    Most real estate sellers remember a time when properties sat on the market only for hours.  Maybe a few days if the agents and sellers were reluctant to review the first few offers that were received. This was also a tactic used to create the multiple offer bidding war.

    As time went on during the “offering window”, offers were countered and responded to, we also observed some “special incentives” being offered to the real estate sellers themselves.

    Dropping off gift baskets and other “fancies” on their doorstep was not uncommon in our valley.

    Sometimes this gave a buyer the edge over other buyers that had similar offers in play.

    The Santa Clarita housing market has changed today. There are no more gifts because the market is making a gradual change from a sellers real estate market to a buyers real estate market.

    Who is responsible…

    Who is responsible? The additional real estate inventory that is now creating a supply over demand scenario.

    With more supply and the same amount of demand we see that some buyers are dropping out of escrow to pursue new listings that enter the re-sale market during their first few days in escrow.

    Right or Wrong? – It depends. This is not a blog post to beat up every single buyer that changes their mind and leaves the real estate seller hanging. This is a post to speak about the quirky Santa Clarita Housing Market.

    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.
