    When wanting to relocate – knowing the time-frames of the current listings is important

    Days_on_market_averages_SFR_SCV_04232013

     

    We just pulled the data from the Local Boards of Realtors.  What I chose to gather was the time frames – the Days on Market as “conclusive” within the following cities.

    Castaic – Stevenson Ranch – Valencia – Acton – Saugus – Newhall – Canyon Country and Santa Clarita

    The data that I pulled included this graph being compiled for the local Single Family Residences only.

    These, as stated, are “conclusive” only DOM”s – data tabulated from being placed on the market to close.

    The DOM(days on market), even with the constrictive inventory and the multitude of buyers, are still longer than “average”.

    The reason is due to the majority of the current real estate market still being short sale in nature.

    Short Sales are distressed real estate listings where the sellers have either had a traumatic life changing event or chose the way of a Strategic Default.

    When wanting to relocate – you need to get the grasp on the local “time frames from Zero to time Escrow starts.  This will give you a gauge that you can use to compare with your personal “relocation” time frames.

    Do yourselves a favor. When wanting to relocate – make sure you are looking with the Local Experts.  Make sure you are getting updates for the local real estate market.  Make sure your agent or the team of agents you hire, have your best interest at heart.

    Read what they are writing.  Find out who they are on-line and within social media channels. See if they add value to your real estate endeavors.  Be safe – Search well – talk soon.

    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.
