    “If the Santa Clarita Real Estate agents don’t know how Buyers are Searching for Real Estate in the Santa Clarita Valley – they are doing their sellers a huge disservice…” – Paris MacIvor

    What are buyers looking for in today’s real estate market? Quite simply, a bargain. The thing to remember is that bargains come in all shapes and sizes and if you are selling your home you have to focus on what makes your home a bargain, or more importantly, how you can make your home appear like a bargain. Another important thing to remember is that a bargain is more than just price.

    When a home buyer walks into a home he looks at what that home has to offer. Finishes that immediately capture a buyer’s attention include the kitchen, bathrooms, and flooring choices. While you certainly do not need to do a complete remodel of your home in order to sell it, to capture the best possible price for your home these items should appear their best.

    If you are considering a remodel you certainly should examine the cost-effectiveness of replacing shag carpet with hardwood flooring, replacing a laminate counter top with granite, concrete, or other “in” surface, and re-tiling a bathroom or two. Consider the resale value when making any changes to your home.

    Take a good look at your home, does it have what you would be looking for if you were looking to buy? It’s a competitive market, being realistic on what your home has to offer can only give you an edge on the competition.

    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.
