How do you buy Santa Clarita real estate

A very simple question, yet it’s composed of many parts, at least to answer correctly. Local Experts in Santa Clarita Areas know the market

How do I buy Santa Clarita real estate?

1. Make sure you are working with a real estate agent that lives and sells homes in the Santa Clarita Valley.

2. Find out if your agent is versed in selling, as well as representing buyers in the Santa Clarita Areas. – This is important because those who do both are going to be better versed as to the Intricacies in best representing you.

3. Ensure your real estate agent knows the “right” vendors in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.

  • a. the right mortgage lenders
  • b. the best in the escrow capacity
  • c. title insurance experts
  • d. pest control representatives
  • e. certified home inspectors

4. When it comes to buying a home, make sure the agent you are choosing brings you into their offices, sits you down and develops a game plan with you and yours.

This Real Estate game plan should include several parts.

Discuss the types of real estate lenders that are within the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.

Find out which maybe more beneficial to work with and why.

Questions to ask real estate lenders should be covered so you get the very best deal when it comes to obtaining a real estate loan.

Tip:  When you are buying a home you don’t pay the Realtor you hired to represent you. Your Chosen Realtor gets paid by the real estate seller, even if that seller is represented by their own agent. In fact, having your own Realtor is how we like it and how our clients feel better protected in the real estate procurement process.

REMAX in Santa Clarita CA presents the local Housing Market Updates

Santa Clarita real estate remax radio show

Santa Clarita Radio Show NOW!

Santa Clarita California. It’s more of an area than a city. While it’s still known as a city, there are no listings assigned within the local Boards of Realtors.

There are “individual” city choices.

When a Top Producing RE/MAX of Santa Clarita Realtor enters a “newly listed” for sale property into the MLS within the Santa Clarita Valley, these are their choices:

  • Stevenson Ranch
  • Valencia
  • Saugus
  • Castaic
  • Canyon Country
  • Acton
  • Val Verde

You see that there is no representation for “Santa Clarita”. It’s not even a choice when we enter in the property information.

Lately some of the “data systems” we use are breaking away from calling Saugus one of the local Cities. We see they are not using Santa Clarita instead of Saugus.

This all means one thing. If you are searching the websites for real estate listings, the most accurate renditions of properties that are currently for sale, are going to be found on a local real estate agents website, that is publishing real estate listings directly, from the Local Multiple Listing Service.

There was an article that Inman News Put up this AM reference to the words and phrases involving “Abortion Pill” being inserted into listings that were found on some of the Real Estate Syndication Websites.

This is a very disconcerting because many people use those websites to search for real estate listings and to find real estate agents.

Those people are finding these websites on Google, Bing and Yahoo.  The real estate syndication websites engage in pay per click campaigns and have real estate agents provide them with millions pages of content for organic traffic.  Agents also pay them handsomely for the leads they generate.

And a spammer was able to break in to add this little phrase about “abortion pills”?

I hope that was not where the violation occurred. I would hope it did not come about as a “break” in the Real Estate syndication websites security, that would be bad.

Have a Great Day and don’t forget to reach out to the Paris911 Team at REMAX of Santa Clarita for more information and to schedule our Crash Course on real estate that has been built for real estate buyers and real estate sellers.

Slow and steady wins the real estate race

We just posted our real estate intel reports at our Top Housing News Website.

Before we were in real estate, I was a cop and Paris was a waitress.

I have tried dressing up our previous professions.  For example I was thinking we could say that Paris was involved in the Foodservice Industry.  Catchy – but not transparent.

She waited on tables, Bakers Square, Marie Callender’s, Chin Chin in Sunset, I think she worked at McDonalds when she was 16 for a time.

Back to me – Correctional officer at 18 through 21 – LAPD 21 through 44 – Overlapping Full time LAPD with Real Estate (1998 to present).

What does this mean? What do you want it to mean?  To me it means that we had some life experience when it came to service.  We had a horrible experience when we bought our first home. I vowed it would never happen again.

Stevenson Ranch real estate market update by REMAX in SR

Every single week, we do our real estate and market updates for the Santa Clarita real estate venues. Today is Monday, memorial day, but is no different from us wanting to get the newest real estate posted up for our clients.
The only difference comes in the way that We took some time and gave our silent thanks for those soldiers and everyone that made, and is making today, the ultimate sacrifice so that we may remain a free society.
Protection from Real Estate PredatorsStevenson Ranch has come a long way since we moved to the Santa Clarita Valley in the mid 1990′s. While here, we have raised two boys, (one still being raised :) , and they both went to schools that were public and part of the Santa Clarita school system.
We also put together systems when we started in real estate, as licensed full time Realtors, in 1998/1999 respectively, that allow our real estate clients to search in the best ways for homes that are for sale in Stevenson Ranch and Elsewhere in the Santa Clarita Valley cities.
You may be asking yourself how we can get the data you are seeing at the start of this Stevenson Ranch update post?
We have a system in place, that we gladly pay for, that gives us information that is based on fact not opinion.
The data stream is verifiable within the local Boards of Realtors Multiple Listing Services. The data is updated every week and is cross checked with the Tax Assessor records as it relates to Closed Escrows and transfers of real estate title.
Be safe – reach out to my REMAX of Valencia CA Realtor Team when you are ready and we will be here for you lock, stock and barrel :)

Santa Clarita real estate statistics from a RE/MAX of Santa Clarita Realtor Team

Large Chart

When it comes to real estate data and the statistics with regard to any local market, the best places to turn are the local real estate agents that make it their “full time” business to analyze them.

Making sure they are being upfront and honest with those that are seeking those professionals opinions.

Professional real estate agents consulting Santa Clarita ClientsThere is no better way to do this but with Real Estate intel and Data directly from a System that The Paris911 Team at REMAX of Santa Clarita CA offer to our clients.

Each and every week, we have the Santa Clarita market data reports sent to our clients, giving them the latest numbers, figures and market statuses for the cities, areas or specific zip codes they are interested in.

Resource: Get the real estate Market Reports for yourself.

There are many online systems where you can see some data. Some intel that possibility has been manipulated in order to influence a person in some way, shape or form.

Such as someone manipulating the real estate statistics in order to get a person to sell a home at the wrong time.

It could come in the way of the same predatory real estate agent building the case, from the manipulation of the real estate data, to get a buyer to buy a home at the wrong time.

Real Estate is very personal. I have never considered myself as being in the Real Estate Business. I see myself as being more in the “protection” business. We never want our clients to suffer or get taken as a result of wanting to buy or sell real estate.

I’m Connor MacIvor with REMAX’s Paris911 Team of Realtors. And I’m Glad to offer my personal and my Top Producing Santa Clarita Realtor Team’s Services.

Happy Client that asked how much his Valencia home was worth

Michael Sells a Valencia Home with Paris911

Michael is happy. He reported that Zillow said his home was worth around $750,000.00. We listed his home in Valencia CA and had an offer within 72 hours for $1,000,450.00.

The offer is via a buyer with a conventional loan and today the appraiser brought in the home at value.

The thing to remember is to hire the “right agent” to list and sell your home.

This is one case in which we were Blessed to have the tools in order to give Michael the “correct” value when it came to his home and the current market.

Zillow and the other Syndication Websites, apart from selling your personal and private information to agents that won’t leave you alone, also have a computer program figuring out what homes and real estate are worth.

It takes a professional sales person that is an expert in their field.  Someone that has been tried by fire and someone that has developed a reputation of performance for their real estate sellers.

We appreciate Michael and those like him that live in Valencia and within the other Cities within the Santa Clarita Valley and Greater Los Angeles where my Paris911 Team serves with regard to listing and real estate procurement for buyers.

Thanks Michael, We have no concluded escrow as of yet, but we will soon. Hang in there and thanks for reaching out to us via our BEST Residential Values Website so we could connect three weeks ago!!!
