    What about Santa Clarita Open houses – are you being TRAPPED?

    Open House Flyer for Buyers without Agents print

    This is the flyer that we hand out at all of our Open Houses.  It talks about how to keep safe when viewing open houses anywhere.  Not to mention the cities that compose the Santa Clarita Valley.  It is rumored that some agents host open houses at homes that are not available for sale.  Other may tell all visitors that they are “required” to sign in when visiting giving up all of their personal information.

    “Look at all these rumors, surrounding me every day…” – Remember that song?

    Back to it.  There are several things that you may want to know when it comes to visiting open houses.

    • Ask the agent hosting the open house, if they are the actual listing agent. -If they are the listing agent, that means they are in contract with the seller.  If they are not the listing agent, they are working the open house to gather leads and potential new clients.
    • Ask the agent if the home, condo or town-home is truly wide open and available to be purchased. -Some will advertise and sit at open houses in an attempt to gain new business.  Even at homes, condo’s and town-homes that are currently in escrow or even ones that are not on the market for sale.
    • Ask the agent at the open house if the home has been placed into the Multiple Listing Service and shows active. -When a property is showing active and has been entered into the Multiple Listing Service – there are rules and codes that have to be abided by that apply to the Real Estate agents involved. (the Listing Agent especially).  This protects you much more than a, not on the market “Open House Marketing Test”.
    Here is the latest installment of Working out while working.  Today, we went 80 minutes – on a Tread climber TC 5000 – a note book was used to offset the keyboard of the lap top.  2.5 miles per hour – 1500 calories burned and It was trance like.  Without working when working out – I do 30 minutes at 3.2 mph burning 420 calories….  But today, I was able to get a lot done 🙂

    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.
