Snowboarding or Skate boarding's 180

180 - doing a 180?  That is our show today, and it does seem that the market has done a 180, from where it had been during the past few years following 2007.

Sellers needen't worry - we have your back in real estateToday, we are shoulder deep in a Sellers Real Estate market.  We have buyers that are very frustrated as they have watched prices increase in the Santa Clarita Valley cities for the past 14 months.

The Interest Rate Dance

Not to mention the interest rates - Jumping from all time lows to well above 4.0% for a 30  year fixed, what is a first time buyer to do?

I'll tell you what you are going to do.  Get local, dig in with a local real estate agent or team. Have a sit down with them in their offices and develop a game plan.

Don't Give Up Mr/Mrs First Time Buyer

Don't feel as if you cannot buy a home.  You can with the right team or agent.  They will have access to inventory via their relationships with other top producing real estate agents in the Santa Clarita Valley, or wherever you are wanting to buy.

Riddle Solved for First Time Buyers

We have solved the "First time home buying" riddle for a multitude of First Time Santa Clarita real estate buyers.  Just make sure whomever you are interviewing has a "Crash Course" on Real Estate.

With the National Association of Realtors reporting that during the last month "May 2013" over 33% of the home buyers using 100% cash, if you are financing, you have competition.

Top Producers only need apply

That is why you need a real estate agent that is not middle of the road, but at the top end of the real estate production spectrum.

Be safe - have a great weekend and let us know how you liked the show.

Also - Be sure to check out our 1 star rating on Yelp - It was a surprise to us too, and the funny thing is we never worked with anyone by that name or with the scenario that was explained?  The other funny thing - They said they had never written a review - yet there were two others for other businesses?

So much for "Truth and Honesty"  being part of a Reviewer's credo :) (false or not?) - Be safe - talk soon....
