    Good Day Everyone, I’m Connor MacIvor, the host – your host 🙂 – of Santa Clarita’s Santa Clarita realtorsLongest running and “known” real estate radio show.  We get into what you want to hear about how that relates to the local real estate markets.

    We cover the local cities and some others in and around of Los Angeles that we are “very active” within when it comes to real estate representation.

    Today’s real estate radio show is going to be our  Foreclosure and Hump Day real estate update for the local Distressed real estate inventory.

    Included in our weekly distressed housing discussion will be the local Foreclosures, how to find them and other ways to get help or take advantage of the distressed inventory.

    During this past week, we have had two wonderfully successful real estate shows. We have been simulcasting on our YouTube channel for Santa Clarita real estate.

    In the News:

    by the Paris911 team local newsAre you a millennial? Is your Age between 19 and 35? Inman said to get your attention to equate real estate to sex. Now that I have your attention here are a couple of great tips that I was able to glean from the article.

    Tip 1 for the millennial – Real Estate, overall, has an awesome return of investment. It’s a good bet that if you were to focus your money on buying homes – when you are ready to “retire” you would have quite a nice amount of equity.

    Tip 2 for the millennial – No matter who you are hiring, you are going to have to break down and sit with them face to face.  Never hire anyone online without meeting with them before signing on the line which is dotted. Never!

    You will be able to gather a lot of “non verbal” signals about the professional you are about to entrust with hundreds of thousands of your dollars – that are being backed by your name and reputation.

    Plus – you will see their real brick and mortar offices, just in case you need to take enforcement action in the future 🙂

    Some will show you real estate listings that appear to be for sale, but are not.

    And some will show you homes that are for sale for $1, just to get you to give up who you are so your personal and private information is able to be sold for their profit.

    Today’s Radio Show – Foreclosures

    Santa Clarita Foreclosure Real estate agentsOn the active real estate market we see, in the Foreclosure/REO/Auction category that there are that are for sale.

    Those properties are active as of the time of the publication of Today’s Foreclosure Show.

    Here is the way those properties would work if you want to see them – I have the Foreclosures Broken down by “status” – Active, Back up and Pending.

    It’s Simple, reach out to my Team, or me and we will schedule a showing, write the offer and get you the property.

    Currently we are tracking the following distressed real estate inventory. Most of the numbers are “off market” properties. “Off market”, in this case, means that they are not currently listed for sale. However, there is a good chance they will be in the near future. Also, someone that is aggressive maybe able to procure one of these properties before it hits the market for sale.

    Email Question of the Day:

    Paris911 QuestionRob Writes, “Connor, when a property is going to the auction, can I buy it?”

    Sure you can Rob – but buying a home at auction takes a lot of preparation.

    Example – Homes sold at Auction are all Cash Transactions. You need to show up with a Cashiers Check in hand. That shows the court what you are worth at the time of the auction. That will be your maximum allowable bid amount.

    It’s not unusual to have people show up with multiple checks – each with an assigned property. The person that is doing the bidding in the “bidder” the one doing the research on the phone I call the “connector” and the one driving the properties, if they have not done good prep work before, is the “runner”.

    It’s not uncommon to be let down at the auction. Doing all of the research on a property only to have it not hit the actual auction block on the day they said it would.

    Some of the prep work with bidding at homes at auction include, checking for liens, checking occupancy, checking any past due HOA fees, checking property taxes, getting an estimate of market value and researching the properties condition.

    Real Estate Tip of the Day:

    real estate tipIf you are going to hire a realtor, lender or any “service professional” make sure you meet with them “face to face” at some point. This is best done First!

    Never take for granted they are who they are over social media or over the phone or email!

    A real “established” office would be nice – One that is local is better. Being able to find them if things go sideways is convenient.

    Upcoming Show – Tomorrow:

    Truth in Lending Thursdays – we are going to speak about that fancy new 3% home loan that is being offered by Fannie and Freddie.

    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.
