    Here are the top things to watch out for when wanting to visit open houses, no matter what city or area – the games are the same. However, in some jurisdictions to host a home open that is no longer available for sale or one that is not on the “official public market” is illegal. So, that will be our number 1.

    1. Make sure the home you are visiting that is being advertised as open, is truly for sale – Sometimes agents that are trying to build their business will host open houses at homes that are not really and truly for sale. They may have a friend that will allow them to put up a bunch of street signs to build a buyer database. It could be that the home has entered a phase of escrow with another buyer, but is being held open anyway as an attempt, according to the agent, to obtain a back up offer. What ever the story you are being fed while visiting the open house, make sure you agent knows upfront that you are going to be doing your own open house tour so they can give you the run down as to what to sign, leave etc… Like I said above, real estate rules and regulations differ from area to area and from state to state.

    2. The agent hosting the open house is not the listing agent – While this is not a “deal breaker” it goes to show you intent – maybe? It could be that this home is being hosted open when there are offers that have been submitted on the home. As stated in number 1 – this differs from that type of scenario. Merely identifying the agent hosting the open house, when they tell you that they can get it for you without a problem, make sure they are who they say they are.

    As long as you are educated as far as how it works when viewing open houses and what to watch out for – you should be able to attend them without placing yourself in jeopardy and the relationship you have with your real estate agent of choice. The most important take away you can gather from this posting is where to view the open houses. If you want to search the MLS for Santa Clarita CA – click here

    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.
