Santa Clarita real estate on Pinterest for Representation

Google+We are the Local Santa Clarita Realtors and we are on Pinterest.

Follow RE/MAX of Valencia’s Paris911 Team of Realtors’s board Santa Clarita Real Estate on Pinterest.

SCV Realtors on PinterestThe Santa Clarita Realtors on Pinterest – We make sure to keep our Pinterest Page update for Santa Clarita real estate.

One of the things most agents, whom you are interviewing, won’t tell you is the fact they need to be present on all of the social media websites.

When it comes to having photos taken of any of our Real Estate Listings – Pinterest is the key.

Our Santa Clarita real estate sellers benefit from our Pinterest Feed.

They get the added exposure, above and beyond the real estate syndication websites, in this way they are “searchable” on the Pinterest Platform.

Real Estate Sellers have the edge when working with our Team. We don’t cut corners when it comes to advertising our real estate listings.

That is why Discount versus Non Discount – is the key to ensuring you getting what you want when it comes to Santa Clarita real estate and your goals.

When we first got into the Santa Clarita Realtor business, we did so because we were taken advantage by the Realtors we hired to represent us. Actually, it was only one realtor. But he did the job of two at screwing up our buying of a Santa Clarita Home.

We came from modest means at that time. I was a full time cop and Paris was a full time student – part time waitress.

It should not have happened to us – but it did. The agent we had hired played many games on us and to have it end finally in a bad way, was something I did not expect.

Santa Clarita Valley housing market forecast 2015.022

When it comes to the local real estate market we are tracking the sold listings, the new inventory and those homes that are entering escrow.

All of these housing types and statuses are important indicators as to the health of the Santa Clarita real estate housing markets.

Santa Clarita real estate news January 6, 2015

Welcome to our Travel Tuesdays Broadcast. I’m Connor MacIvor your host and Santa Clarita home searchesbefore we get into where we happen to be within the “social media” sites of the world, let’s get into the Santa Clarita real estate news.

Resource: See where the SCV Real Estate market maybe strengthening

On the forefront within real estate, we see that there are a couple of new “loan programs” that Fannie and Freddie are offering. Using one of these products will allow you to buy a home/condo/townhome with a 3% down payment.

That is 1/2 a percent less than the comparable FHA Loan.

Sounds sweet – However, it maybe require you to show your ability to “walk on water” with regard to your debt to income ratio and your fico scores. More about that this Thursday on our Truth in Lending Broadcast – Tune in!

Email Question for our Show!

Definitely real estate related, and a perfect fit for our Travel Tuesdays real estate news show.  BTW – thanks Diane, your query did have an influence on Today’s Santa Clarita Housing news show.

Diane Foley – from the Visual Sense, a client and friend, asked where the realtor’s gather on social media.

I have to admit, Diane is the best designer I have ever encountered. She has the “sight” that you want when it comes to hiring a designer. She is diligent, trustworthy and gets the job done in the best way possible.

I shared with her where I am on Social Media and that is where she will be able to find the Realtors and Realty Professionals too. Here is her New Real Estate Graphical Design Website. She is Good as Gold!

Travel Tuesdays Broadcast:

Where is the Paris911 Team within the Social Media Sphere?

We listen on social media, not just plug our wares. We also talk about our clients experiences so you may grow from the knowledge and know the best ways how to protect yourselves when it comes to the most expensive investment of your life, your Real Estate.

Here is where our team is on the major social media channels.

We have a facebook fan page for our Paris911 Real Estate Team and do postings about local real estate inventory and our real estate sellers/buyers stories that I write about in article form.

Sharing the local real estate data and our clients experiences would not be complete without our Santa Clarita Real Estate team on Twitter.  OMG – hold me back – the wonder of 140 characters of pure real estate goodness :)

Get ready to do some more clicking – we have two more Super Duper social media channels we frequent:

Our real estate team would not be as successful, as we currently are, if it were not for Google Plus. Our Santa Clarita Real Estate company is on Google plus. Besides my account on Google Plus – we have several business pages that will give you specific real estate information related to the Santa Clarita Valley and Greater Los Angeles Areas.

How about our Santa Clarita Business profile? To do justice for our real estate clients and REMAX Real Estate business, we have to be dug in deeper than “Alabama Ticks” within LinkedIn.

LinkedIn is where you will find my Paris911 Team.

We interact with other business professionals and have built some of the strongest referral bonds within real estate.

And Pinterest – What do people love about searching for homes, decorating ideas, and for other “real estate” fanfare?  They love the Pictures and there is where you find our Pinterest Channel for Santa Clarita REMAX’s Paris911 Team.

Tomorrow’s Realty News Show:

We have been tracking 25 homes with price changes

real estate agents2014.333 – When the real estate market blows up, we will be ready :).  (look at our data concerning Spring 2015)

During the holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, the real estate market slows down quite a bit.

Case and point, during our friday finale broadcast, we have seen the Sold Listings cut in half from where they normally are, somewhere around 100 ish every week.

We have seen the “sold numbers” much higher, especially during the heyday of the REO market during the late part of 2011 and early 2012.

The numbers we have been tracking in the Santa Clarita Valley cities are the following for our Friday Finale Real Estate radio broadcast:

  • 34 new real estate listings hit the Santa Clarita market

  • 25 real estate listings had their prices changed

  • properties that fell out of escrow were 27

  • 9 homes expired and did not sell within contractual timeframes

  • 40 real estate listings went into escrow (pending status)

  • 49 real estate listings in the Santa Clarita Valley closed escrow (sold)

Access points to view the information for the properties above are the following URL’s:

During our Friday Finale Radio show, we get into the data. You may be wondering why I’m posting this up on Saturday, when Friday has passed?  It’s because I swapped our Sold Saturdays Broadcast my mistake, and recorded it yesterday (on Friday).

Here is the Price Change recap for the previous seven days:

Twenty Five real estate listings had their prices changed in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.

Of those homes, we have been tracking 7 that were listing price increases. Two of which were short sales that had received approval from the bank who owns the note.

The remaining 5 were Santa Clarita standard sales and had their prices increased. You may be asking how a seller can increase their sales price in today’s market?  It may have been a mistake when the listing agent entered the listing into the MLS.  Or maybe the seller changed their mind.  Maybe the seller did not discuss it with their counterpart before signing on the line which is dotted.

The other 18 real estate listings were price reductions – from listing price to a lower listing price in the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.

Enjoy our real estate update, connect with us when you are ready and thank you for reading our real estate intel reports for the Santa Clarita Valley Cities.

Santa Clarita real estate consultant for home buyers and sellers, even tenants

connor t. macivor real estate santa clarita consultant

When it comes to real estate and real estate consulting in the Santa Clarita Valley cities, Connor T. MacIvor has the com :)

It’s interesting. While I was with the LAPD I taught several different “high speed and low drag” courses.

One of which was while working Firearms. .45 transition, Glock Transition and being a Shotgun instructor required a certain level of ability.

While you may have heard the saying that, “Those who cannot do, teach…”

This is not the way it is when the instruction has a curriculum that can equate to death. There were many “fail safes” and “rules” that were imposed on the recruits and inservice personnel while teaching firearms, not matter the field of endeavor.

Plus, we always demonstrated all “phases” live. If we were not the BEST of the BEST, the students lost faith in our ability and theirs also! You can imagine how much we had to practice so we were at the “Top of our Game”…

Double, Triple and Quadruple checked weapon systems to ensure those that were handling them knew their current “chargedConnor MacIvor real estate consultant or discharged” condition.

“Down-range” was always established and all weapons will always be pointed downrange!

Any violation of any of the safety rules would get a student removed from the class, we did not play around.

While in real estate, my life now, there isn’t the chance for death from the direct result of a real estate dealing, it is considered by some to be just as important in a person’s life.

We approach buying and selling real estate, with our real estate clients, as that of consultants. We sit down and advice about the process. It is time to sell or a better time to buy? What does it mean that real estate maybe a “wash” when it comes to selling and or buying? Who are the players involved in the transaction?

What about discounts? Who gives them and what is the best way to ask? Who pays what in a real estate transaction? Who can be “made” to pay some of a buyers and or sellers closing costs?

So many topics, when approaching them as a consultant would, you are better off in the process.  Reach out to me when you are ready. You will find me in the Santa Clarita Valley and ready to be of assistance!
