If you are looking for a rental or property for lease in the Santa Clarita Valley cities, you have found the fastest and most up to date real estate website. SantaClaritaHomeExperts.com
(- remember to mention this website when you or someone you know wants to buy or sell a home - it's super fast and accurate!)
The problem that you are going to have is that I am unable to represent tenants and those who are wanting to rent or those who want to have their properties managed or rented.
I represent home buyers and sellers only if you become one of those - I will be here for you with my fanciest wig :)
Why am I here?
You are here because I protect your personal information. I am Connor "with honor" MacIvor.
I publish FREE, for your viewing pleasure, all of the properties that are published in the multiple listing service (MLS), that are currently for rent and for lease in the Santa Clarita Valley cities.
That is why you are here.
There are a lot of scammers that want to get your personal and private information online.
I will do you no harm.
What can you do for me?
I have no issue giving you the name of the leasing agent or the property management agent and phone number so you can follow up with them about the property that you are interested in.
I would never use the listing agent when buying a home, condo or townhome - but for a property for rent or lease, they are the property manager and you will have to deal with them a bunch throughout your time renting or leasing.
You call them, tell them that you are interested in the property at _________________________, and ask for a showing and what else you will need to rent or lease the property if you like it.
These listings are those that have been published in the multiple listing service which is maintained by the Board of Realtors.
Therefore, all those who place listings into the MLS are actual realtors which are held to a higher standard than those people who have property management companies without the Realtor affiliation. (hello, enforcement anyone?)
Other websites with home rentals and leases
You are bound to run into other websites that are online showing the rentals and leases which are currently being offered.
Some of those listings are going to be fake, some are going to be already leased, and some are going to be unverifiable.
The problem is who is getting your personal information? The bigger problem is what are they going to do with it as soon as you give it up? Are they going to sell it? You betcha. The selling of information game is alive and well and business is booming.
Look at the bottom of the websites where you are viewing rentals and leases. There should be a local address and local phone number with an agents' name and CALDRE # - which is our California real estate license prefix - California Department of Real Estate.
That is if you are looking to keep your personal information safe from being sold.
How money changes hands with a rental or lease
Be careful who you are giving your money to. Do they have an actual contract between themselves and the true property owner?
How are you able to verify that they do? Can you ask for the contract? Absolutely you can.
If the rental or property for lease has been placed into the MLS, then you have the Board of Realtors to act as your enforcement mechanism.
If the property is not in the MLS database, then you don't.
Just be careful.
If something sounds too good to be true, it is.
Please, when you are ready to step up to a conversation about owning your own real estate or if you know someone that wants to buy or sell, remember me. I'm Connor MacIvor and I can be reached on my cell at 661.400.1720
Thanks for taking the time and let me know if you see anything you like below. I'll send you the contact name and phone number for the agent. Be super.
