During the past week, I have been monitoring the Santa Clarita Valley real estate market and we have been monitoring the new real estate listings. For this week and our Market Monday’s real estate show, we have 99 real estate listings that have entered the real estate market for sale. View all of the New Santa Clarita Real Estate listings During the past week I have also seen “Things” and I have “Done some Things…” If you are of an alike mind – you will get the movie reference – and hey – if you do, shoot me an email and I’ll fire you off a Starbucks Card, with money on it New Santa Clarita real estate listings 99 New Santa Clarita real estate listings hit during the past week. 5 are Short Sales – these are real estate listings where the owner wanting to petition the bank(lender), the one whom they owe the mortgage to, so they will agree and allow the seller to sell his/her home for less than what is owed. View the Short Sales for Sale Now! They may or may not. It’s going to depend on a lot of factors. In fact, those who headed up the short sale market, had difficulty. Those in the  middle did not. Now that we are at the end, I’d imagine the short sale process may encounter a bit more flack! 1 is a probate sale. The owner did not have a written will or a living trust when they died. Now the kids have to deal with the courts and have what the court thinks is the...

Did I just give my Valencia CA home away?

Sometimes it happens that a real estate seller has spoken with a neighbor, and due to that conversation thinks they have “given away their home”. Maybe they think the home was not on the market long enough to get “all reasonable offers”. Maybe their neighbor conned them into believing their home is better, upsetting the recipient of the news. No matter what the cause – selling real estate is a very dynamic endeavor. There are a lot of moving parts in the process. Timing is everything in real estate. It could be that the market was “just missed” when the home was placed onto the market for sale. One such example is the case where a school oriented community has begun it’s fall session. For the most part, when the homes are placed onto the market just prior to school resuming for a new year, the market slows down. However, that will depend if a majority of the buyers are hinging their real estate purchase on obtaining a particular school system for their child or children. It may come down to future planning. Maybe a family is something that is wanted and these particular buyers break away from the mold of selling every 4.7 – 4.9 years, as is statistically the case with real estate owners. Maybe the sellers are moving out of the area and just want to move along, not hinging to “price” being the paramount issue they face. As stated, real estate is a very dynamic proposition. That is why it’s key to hire the best and most experienced real estate agent you are able to...

What I want for Christmas is an SCV Open House Sign Installation Service

What I want for Christmas I received early in the form of a local Santa Clarita Based Business. Have you ever thought to yourself, “There should be a company that does X or that is able to do Y?” It sure would save me, and other’s, time and it would be something that I could talk about with my clients conveying a “professional” was on the job! When it comes to real estate, we are the consummate professional. Marketing, advertising, listing, negotiation, disclosing, protecting and serving – we have those bases covered. (what an inning that would be ) Real Estate Open House Sign Installation – Mr. Sam Padilla Here is what I wanted for Christmas. I wanted a company that sets up and takes down open house signs. Yes, that is what I wanted and what I received Mid July 2015. Talk about an early Christmas. Introducing Sam Padilla. “Sign up SCV” is his company’s name and he is stellar. At first, I had my doubts. Some of my questions, “How can a person set up open house signage as I would?” – Not that it’s all that hard or difficult. But I do put a lot of thought about the best location, where I’ll get maximum visibility and what “laws and enforceable” rules exist about placing the signs on “common property and private property”. My Signs have been taken and booked as evidence before when I was conducting an open house in Calabasas – apparently there are restrictions from placing signs on public sidewalks and on curbs – Who Knew Have you been stuck behind a real...

Being scammed when searching online for Real Estate and Homes

There are ways in which to avoid the online scams when it comes to searching for homes and real estate online. One such way is to always make sure you are using the actual Multiple Listing Service. In order to do so, you must be attached to a website that has the correct permissions given to it by the Boards of Realtors so the actual multiple listing service homes and real estate listings can populate it. Without having to do a lot of “painful” research – if you are in Southern California, go to goSCV.com to search for homes and real estate for sale. It’s a real system that is only showing the multiple listing service homes and real estate listings for sale. They are going to be in various statuses – they will be active status (no contracts have been accepted by the seller). They will be in “backup” status – those are homes and real estate that have had an accepted offer written on them, however – they are still in the status where the owner wants continued showings and additional offers written on them just in case they fall out of escrow! They maybe in “pending” status – these are homes and real estate listings which are in escrow. Homes that are not available to have additional viewings nor additional offers written on them. The pending status and those homes what have recorded as being sold – should be labeled as such and not set within the online websites in order to “trick or deceive” you into giving up who you are so your personal information...

How much is my Santa Clarita Home worth now

If I could shake a stick at all of the “online attempts” non MLS and non Real Estate Agent systems have tried to put together a correct “estimation of value” referencing real estate, I’d be shaking a lot of sticks!!! You have seen the systems and some aren’t bad – but most are horrible. They have some type of “computer algorithm” in place that is supposed to give you what your home would sell for in today’s real estate market. The problem is it does not bring in any of the buyer drive or local focal data related to home values. In addition, it relies on the Tax Assessor records, which aren’t bad – but don’t have the dynamic information that the Board of Realtors maintains records on. During the past several years, we have seen systems such as the “online pricing” valuations websites and pages come and go. Today, there are a lot more that are gaming our clients and spamming them consistently. When you are ready to really get to the bottom of the question of what your home is worth in today’s real estate market, all you have to do is get your value now. What is your Santa Clarita Home worth NOW! It will only take several minutes and a top producing realtor, me – Connor MacIvor, will get you what exactly your home happens to be worth today, in the current real estate market. Each of the systems we have in place only show me, yours truly, your personal and private information. Also – any of your personal and private information won’t be sold,...

Ask REMAX of Santa Clarita real estate agents a question

Sometimes you don’t want to give up too much info. You don’t want to talk with someone directly. You just want to reach out and ask a simple question or two. Such as, “What is the home at 12345 anywhere street on the market for?”  or, “What should I expect to have my agent prepare for me in the preparation of my home for sale?” Great questions and you now have the place to ask without having to tie up with anyone. One of the things that is also important in real estate, is getting the “proper responses” and knowing that the agent on the other side of the string is going to be someone you are able to trust. We are the Paris911 Team with REMAX of Santa Clarita – Just google us or check out our YouTube channel as it relates to Santa Clarita real estate. We are local and have been maintaining a top producing real estate team since 1998 (after about three years) – Hey, we had to get started – Have a great day and thanks for taking the time to ask a real estate related question of our Top Realty Team in Santa Clarita Valley at...

It’s a bird, it’s a plane – no, it’s 747 active Santa Clarita Listings

Good Day everyone, today in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities we have 747 homes, condos and town homes for sale in the active real estate status. Resource: View the New Real Estate listings in Santa Clarita Valley This is meaningful when you look back to 2.5 months ago when we had only around 500 homes, condos and town homes for sale in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities. Also, around that time, we had a lot more of those real estate listings that were in some type of distressed state. The flavor of the day when we list Santa Clarita Valley real estate is that those residential listings are not “distressed” in nature, but equity sales. Meaning the owners have enough equity in their home to sell and break even or walk away with some money. With Santa Clarita real estate values being only 10-15% off peak prices – we are continuing to have buyers wanting to buy a home before prices get too high. Let me take a moment to address buyers of the “better get it now” mindset. Don’t panic!!! – As they continued to say in “HitchHikers guide to the galaxy…” – Don’t. Not is not the time to panic.  As they said in “some other movie I watched recently…” Interest rates – they will continue to fluctuate – rising up and down as they do traditionally. Will they rise to a point that people are going to panic – absolutely yes. Like what we had happen last week – from in the 3’s to into the 4’s. However the rise was only two tenths… Sure, I get...

Searching for REMAX Real Estate Agents Top Referred Realtors

Some people just like the fact they are working with a REMAX Realtor. I get that – because we work with the REMAX brokerage and are very happy. Most agents move around a lot when it comes to working at specific real estate companies. They are always on the move jumping to the patch of grass that seems to be greener. In our case – we have been with REMAX since 1998 and are happy to say we have not deviated very much, except in the very beginning, during the first 6 months, after having become licensed as Realtors. Since that time we consult and represent our clients, with regard to real estate, in the Santa Clarita Valley and the greater Los Angeles Areas – However, there are times when our clients are not interested in conducting any real estate business in those areas. We have built a system that helps our clients “Find a REMAX Agent” in the areas where we don’t frequent with our Real Estate representation. This is the system of which I have been speaking. The best asset about this system is it is all about our clients and those whom we work with. We are active within the Los Angeles Areas – However, some of our clients are wanting to buy homes in Riverside – Corona – Las Vegas – Idaho – etc. They like the way we provide for their real estate representation and want us to find someone in the business that has our similar work ethic. We built our “Refer me to a REMAX Agent” system set up for those people whom...
