To be a "success" in real estate today, it is necessary to be on the list. The email list when it comes to getting the latest in real estate inventory.
I'm not talking about a 'set it and forget it' system. I'm talking about you getting the freshest listings and your agent getting the same too. Besides your agent having to watch the "pocket or pre-market listings", we need to keep up with your specific home search.
You will know that they are by the phone calls, text's or email's you are receiving with notifications about the properties you "maybe" interested in.
If you need a yard that is bigger than a 6X9 cell that can be found in a supermax - then you need to let your real estate agent know that.
want to need to have three bedrooms as a minimum - tell them that too. Work with the "minimum" you would be willing to accept. That is because most agents are going to set the low levels and leave the top open, with exception of the price.
No need to leave the "price limit" without limit - if you can afford a property at a maximum price of $400k.
In addition, on the other side of the coin, if you can afford a maximum price of $400k - there is no reason to have your search set, or to be showing you homes at $450k. (market dependent of course)
Today, listings are acquiring multiple bids and most times, they are exceeding the list price. Multiple offers, are received, in mere hours from the time the home was listed within our local Multiple Listing service.
This is another reason why you need to hook up with a local Santa Clarita real estate expert. They have the inside scoop with regard to inventory, and they are only limited by their own Ego.
If you find an "ego-less" agent, they will be dug in deep within the networking groups that are occupied by other "ego-less" realtors, wanting to share their pocket listings.
That could mean the difference between you finding the right home or continuing to rent. Be safe - search well and let our Team of Santa Clarita buyers agents know when you are ready for us to MOVE you.
