Before doing anything read this very important tip!
By the way, before we meet in person or over the phone remember this tip:Never ever give your real name or any other personal information when viewing an open house or a new construction builder home! Don't sign in with your real name or email, don't join an interest list, don't sign up for updates, or innocently give your name to view the open house or new homes. If you do so I cannot save you the money I speak about when I represent a home buyer when they are buying real estate from me as their Real Estate Agent!
My real estate business is headquartered in the Santa Clarita Valley. The Santa Clarita Valley's southern border is the city of Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley.
Point Being - I represent buyers and sellers in both areas. I'm Connor MacIvor.
I operate the most complete and longest running blog about Santa Clarita real estate. I am the true local area expert living in the Santa Clarita Valley during and after my LAPD career. I'm all about the protection and service to both my home buyers and Santa Clarita home sellers. The biggest compliment that any client of mine can give is by way of them referring their family, friends and those whom they know want to buy or sell real estate. I'm honored in each instance. Our business operates primarily by referral.
First and foremost, my real estate representation method is teaching. I'm not teaching my home buyers and sellers on how to be real estate agents. I'm teaching them how to be best protected when it comes to buying and selling real estate.
The best way to do this is by our in-person meetings which are done in my offices, over the phone, or by remote meetings conducted with my Zoom Affiliation. I was the first agent to employ a podcast/radio show in my housing market updates. I was also the first agent to conduct seminars online with many participants where questions could be asked and where the best solutions to actual real estate problems could be discovered. I have had up to 50 live participants in my seminars within the online realm and mandate that my home buyers and home sellers become educated in one of my many processes.
Buying a home is not like buying a pair of shoes. There are a lot more moving parts and the price point is much larger.
Anything that takes 30 years to pay off, typically, needs to be approached with care and concern. Making a mistake with real estate is expensive and some never are able to recover.
Take the last real estate cycle. There were a lot of home buyers that jumped in without testing the waters. If you did so during the later part of 2011 and in the 1st quarter of 2012 - your jumping in was the best thing you could have done.
That is because during that time that was the low part of the real estate market. Between the fall of housing in 2007 and the current date, the last absolute low point in the Los Angeles Areas was last quarter 2011 and the first quarter of 2012.
I approach real estate with my clients with knowledge and experience. I know that most home buyers take the word for what they read online, no matter the source. If the source has a large well-advertised name, most take the information conveyed as the word of a higher power.
If you are interested in your best future with real estate, do not do that. Call me directly at 661.400.1720
