You may be asking "Why" such a firm question as my blog title this morning? It is no secret NH is buried in snow from this winter that wont end. With upwards to 6 to 7 feet on the ground in some areas, it is hard not to think of the snow. There is a big BUT though...

The PROBLEM is the Buyers are not waiting, they are here, … (6 comments)

free: Should a SELLER ever PAY a Buyers Closing Costs? - 03/02/15 05:59 AM
WHO should have to pay CLOSING COSTS during the Purchase/Sale of a home? Different parts of the country have different traditions. However this is a subject I bring up with the Home Seller when Listing a Home For Sale. Here in NH the majority of sales where the Buyer gets a mortgage, is a FHA Mortgage. Most Buyer using a FHA mortgage do so because they have good credit but little savings.
 
Most Sellers do ask "Why they should have to pay the Buyers Closing Costs?" The simple answer is so that they can sell their home quicker and … (14 comments)

Do you like Fun houses? How about the rolling barrel at the end that can spin you upside down never letting you out as a clown laughs at you?

They paid a flat fee up front where the agent put their home in the MLS and directed all calls to the seller. They then said they celebrated all the savings. Days turned turned to weeks and no calls.

Does your area have an average of what home sells for below asking price? This is one of the top questions from Buyers in the Manchester NH area who are looking for the best bargains they can find.  Here in Southern New Hampshire buyers are surprised when they hear that many new listings sell at or above asking price. There next question is usually then why hasn't "this home" sold that has been on the market for 6 months? 
 
You do not have to feel like you are spinning upside down in a fun house when buying or selling a home.

free: WHY can't I ask whatever price I want for my House? - 02/14/15 01:15 PM
Does it matter what your asking price is when you list your home? A Manchester NH area Home Owner wanted to set his own price. He did not care about what the other homes in his neighborhood sold for. "If you want to list my home, you have to take it at this price" he said. Would you take the Listing?
 
I simply explained to them how we obtain the value of the home. That we look at the most similar homes that sold in the last 6 months in this neighborhood within 10 years in age and 20% in size. We add or … (33 comments)

free: If you show a home that is over priced, do you tell the agent or owner - 02/13/15 04:07 PM
Most days you live for the phone to ring, but when the seller of a home I showed calls me direct, i was not so sure i should have answered. She started screaming bloody murder demanding feedback from the showing.

Finally able to speak I let her know my buyer appreciated being able to see her home and I would let her agent … (36 comments)

free: What is the Real Estate Firing Squad? - 02/08/15 08:30 AM
One of the easiest parts of selling a home is finding a buyer and the hardest part of any sale is to get the home to close. In some cases it happens before they buyer makes an offer, but in others, it may happen after the offer has already been accepted, The "Firing squad arrives" Most often when the buyer brings in their parents, or in some cases their children, they bring in their uncle, cousin, co-worker and perhaps friends. They all have an opinion and soon start to confuse and sometimes scare the buyer.
 
How do you handle … (17 comments)

free: Why wont anyone give me real answers about Real Estate commissions? - 02/08/15 08:06 AM
One of the most controversial subjects in Real Estate is about commissions. The one factor is each agency can set what they will charge. The MOST IMPORTANT factor is what services you get for what you pay. Real Estate agents are not allowed by law to discuss an average commission or what anyone else charges. My best tip is to call an agency, ask what they charge and what you get for what you will pay. the BOTTOM LINE is their services should more than save what you pay.
 
You will see Commissions discussed in every online forum which … (27 comments)

free: WHY Shouldn't a Seller list with 5 different agents? - 02/08/15 06:32 AM
Does it seem like a good idea to list with 5 different agents to get 5 times the exposure? This one Manchester NH area Home Owner thought so on Saturday. They were not only interviewing agents, but hiring each one to list their home in an open listing. Their reasoning was to get added exposure for their home for a quicker sale. I toured the home but was not interested in an open listing. Unless i had a buyer, there is no way i could put any effort and money into marketing it with so many other cooks in the kitchen involved with … (33 comments)

If a Seller is insistent on Listing their home way above it's current market value, would you take the listing?
