Tricky real estate descriptions what the words really mean

    I know you have seen it – when you read the words used by the real estate agent describing the homes that you are interested in viewing.

    Some descriptions are quite tricky when it comes to real estate descriptions you are going to be reading.

    Cozy – this may equate to the home being very small and having little space for you and your family.

    Open and Airy – Could mean the home does not have a formal living room or other spaces or many inner walls.

    Contractors Dream – this could mean that you are going to need to have funds to make updates, repairs and to bring the property to a habitable space.

    Great Opportunity – this could mean the home is overpriced and you need to check before committing yourself.

    Will not allow for FHA or VA financing – this could mean the home is in such bad repair that appraisers that represent these loan programs would not allow for financing of this type.

    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.
