We have quite a weekend coming up in the Santa Clarita Valley. I have also posted the latest headlines from the Santa Clarita Signal Newspaper below
I think that most buyers are frustrated with the current real estate market because they are not getting the full story from their chosen agent(s).
The typical Santa Clarita home buyer scenario is:
- Meet with their real estate agent, (usually only over the phone until they start looking at properties…)
- get pre qualified with a lender the agent knows
- start looking at the homes that fit their criteria
They are not being told about “controlling rumors” as they are listening to all of the “noise” on the news and other sources. “Understanding motives in reference to the specific source of the news can be enlightening…”
Today’s Buyers are not being educated from a standpoint of this specific market. Their agents need to use recent and actual real estate experiences to explain what may be expected within each potential real estate transaction.
That way, those real estate clients are not left in the dark and are less-likely to go to work with another Real Estate Agent that will take that time to explain!
