    Where the Santa Clarita real estate search engines fall short

    I know you know that I am a big fan of technology and search.  It is very important for Buyers of the World to find the most accurate renditions of the Sellers Listings that are currently on the market for sale. Without any “fail safe” mechanisms or “policing agencies” in place, some of the Real Estate syndication websites are posting the following “misleading” property types:

    • Homes that are in escrow – showing up as active
    • Listings that have been sold in time past but still are getting GREAT traffic for the syndication website so that syndication site is keeping them as appearing as active(scandalous)
    • Pre Foreclosures and Bank owned as if the real estate buyers can purchase them without an issue
    When searching on-line for real estate properties, make sure your local Santa Clarita real estate agent is giving you the right goods to search.  They should have systems in place so you can search without having to worry about your personal information being sold to the highest bidder.  In addition, their systems should update much faster and with more clarity that all of the Real Estate syndication websites.  Your agent’s system for search should be based on the IDX – internet data exchange – principal.

    That is an agreement and data feed that the syndication websites cannot get.  That feed is only available to individual Realtors working under a Licensed Broker.  Those agents that have IDX being displayed also have to be full members of the National Association of Realtors and in CA – the California Association of Realtors (NAR and CAR).  On top of that, those real estate agents have to be a member of  a local Board of Realtors – In Good Standing.  

    Most syndication websites are built around generating income for their owners.  They want to sell your personal information to the agents willing to pay the highest price.  We don’t appreciate that type of business model due to many people being misled as to what the websites actual intention is.  If they just had a large disclaimer on their website.  “Your personal and private information is going to be sold to multiple real estate agents hungry for your business!!!”

    There are three new listings that have just been listed in Saugus CA.  Each of these listings has been listed for sale by the Saugus CA real estate experts.  We are on the prowl for buyers for each of these listings – please let us know if you are interested or have any family/friends that may be.

    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.
