Picking Your Real Estate Agent

What do you really know about selling your home? It involves much more than sticking a sign in your yard.

“I don’t want to pay those BLANKETY BLANK Realtor commissions!”Proven home selling strategies from Montemayor & Associates

Indeed, we hear that from a few sellers to say the least. However, if you’re considering selling your home, there are some things you should know regarding the difference between hiring a licensed, experienced professional and trying to sell it yourself.

1. We know the market!

We have access to local, ACCURATE information regarding the fair market value of your property. Relying on automated value sites can cost you thousands of dollars. These sites mostly use a generic algorithm based on what may be very outdated data, and may not accurately reflect today’s real estate market. Our team analyzes the most current comparable sales, demographics, and items that may affect the value of your property to provide you with a detailed, accurate accounting for your home’s value.

You have a lot of choices when it comes to picking the Real Estate team to represent your family.  Give Montemayor and Associates the opportunity to interview for the job of being your “Go To” Realtor!

So with all the real estate agents out there to choose from, what sets you apart?

We get that question a lot, and for good reason. You in fact DO have a lot of choices when it comes to buying or selling your home. There are close to 2,000 licensed real estate agents in the Santa Clarita Valley alone.

That being said, here are just a few things that set us apart from much of our competition:

FULL-TIME AGENTS
Our team of agents dedicate themselves to the business of real estate on a full-time basis. That means our entire workday is centered around following up with our clients, showing properties, writing offers, and making sure our buyers and sellers needs are met with 100% satisfaction.

WE OFFER THE LATEST IN MARKETING TECHNIQUES
From traditional websites, to blogging (Like what you’re reading now), to effective social media, video virtual property tours, and good old fashioned footwork, we put a lot of effort into marketing your home for sale.

WE PUT TIME, EFFORT, ENERGY, AND EXPENSE INTO MARKETING YOUR PROPERTY
We leave nothing to chance in marketing your property. Door hangers, flyers, virtual tours, are only a few of the options available to you when Montemayor & Associates lists your home for sale. We also network with our database of potential buyers as well as other realtors who have buyers looking for a home just like yours.

AND FINALLY….OUR CANCEL ANYTIME GUARANTEE!
We offer these services at no up front expense to you. We do everything we can to market your property at a top-notch level. We do invest our money, time and resources into getting your home sold with no promise of any type of return. The only thing we ask is that you work with us, and through the process, if we do not provide you with top-notch service,   or the service that you feel you deserve, you can fire us at any time!

One of the great aspects of using Montemayor & Associates as your buyer’s agent when looking to purchase a home is that you don’t pay our fees, the seller does. In essence, you pay nothing for our professional level of service representing YOUR needs in a home purchase negotiation.

Why is this important?

Remember, that when a seller lists a home with a real estate agent, that agent is contractually obligated to represent the seller’s interests, not the buyers. So for those home buyers who think they’re “cutting out the middleman” by calling the agent whose name is on the sign in front of the home they are interested in buying, that agent is actually working for the seller’s interest, not the buyer’s. Yes, true professionals will try to aid the negotiations between the buyer and seller to a win-win conclusion, but remember, the listing agent HAS to represent the seller as per the listing contract.  Basically, when the listing agent is working for both the buyer AND the seller, he or she may feel more obligated to lean toward the needs of the person who is paying their fees IE: the seller.

In hiring Montemayor & Associates  as your buyer’s agent, we represent YOUR interests in the negotiation process. We make sure the seller and seller’s agent understand your needs and your unique situation, and we fight for the best deal for you. Again, THIS COSTS YOU NOTHING!

If you are considering buying a home, there is no better time than now. Interest rates and home prices are incredibly low, and there are some great home buyer programs available that can get you into a home for as little as half a percent down. For more information, go to http://bringingyouhomescv.com or call us direct at 661-290-3802.

Despite what you may have heard about the real estate market, available-for-sale home inventory is extremely low. On top of that, 50% or more of the homes available for sale are short sales.

This means that there is sometimes fierce competition for homes that are available for sale.

So what’s the advantage?

Our team at Montemayor & Associates work with home buyers to assess their wants and needs in the most detailed manner possible. With that information, we regularly check the multiple listing service (MLS) for the latest listings that come on the market so that we can get the buyer over to preview as soon as possible. But, that’s not all…

We also belong to various realtor networks in and around the Santa Clarita Valley where we share home buyer needs and in many cases, find homes for our buyers that haven’t even hit the market yet. This way we can get the buyer to the property to preview and, if they like what they see, we can get an offer in right away.

Your time is extremely valuable, and we appreciate and respect that time. With that, we do our best to make the time on your behalf to help you find what you’re looking for based on your wants and needs, and our market expertise.

Now is the time to buy a home. Rates and home prices are still extremely low, and there are many loan programs for qualified buyers that allow them to purchase for as little as a half percent down. For more information and to begin your home search, go to http://bringingyouhomescv.com, or call us for a no obligation consultation at 661-290-3802. 

One of the great aspects of being a part of the Keller Williams team is that we have access to a network of over 80,000 real estate agents internationally. This means that no matter where you are locating to or from, we can find a real estate professional that is right for you.

Here’s how it works: Let’s say you (or someone you know) is relocating across the country to North Carolina. Or perhaps they’ve been transferred by their work to Vancouver, British Columbia, for example. All you need to do is call our office (or contact us by clicking here), and we’ll make sure to find a Keller Williams agent in that particular that suits your needs for your move. This is a free service, and we’re more than glad to help.

Client Testimonials
I had specific needs for my new home. Brandon was very patient with my unique situation and flexible when it kept changing. He showed me so many houses, but with little inventory, none of them were quite perfect or they had too much HOA or Mello Roos. Finally when we found The One, no HOA, no Mello Roos, it had been on the market for 4 days and I made an offer that morning. I was sure the sellers would give it to someone else but Brandon worked hard to make sure they accepted my offer and by that night, the house was mine. Had it not been for Brandon I would still be searching for a house because so far, there is still nothing better than mine.
