free: How many offers can a Buyer make on a Home? - 12/10/14 04:57 AM
Is there a limit to how many offers a Home buyer can make on a home? I am thinking the most popular answer to this question will be there is no limit to how many offers a buyer wants to make. There is a "HOWEVER" though as on my new Manchester NH area home listing, it is bank owned, it needs some work and is listed as a CASH ONLY sale. Despite that this buyer really wanted it. They wanted to make an offer getting a FHA mortgage. There is no way this home will be able to have a FHA … (15 comments)

They made a list, we checked it twice and will spend the day tomorrow choosing their dream home. The lender may not be able guarantee Christmas, but said there is no reason they can not be in for New Years.

What if the dogs can not be removed from the home by the Seller prior to a showing? Every Real Estate Agent will tell you it is best if pets are removed from a home For Sale before the home is shown to buyers. In this case the Home Owner can not remove them prior to a showing.

Just when you think it can not get any crazier, it did on Saturday. People are talking about yesterdays blog "What the Heck is Mrs. Buyer broker doing?, and it didn't end there. With 8 showings scheduled for a new Manchester NH area Bank Owned listing within a Saturday afternoon, One potential Buyer blurted out "What will it take to make this home mine?"
 
Another Buyer also looking at the home shouted the answer, "back flips". With a "woosh" and a "thud" the buyer does a back flip. There seems to be no end to the excitement Real Estate … (8 comments)

free: Should you tell a Home Owner their home SMELLS? - 12/05/14 05:29 AM
Sellers crave feedback - Listing Agents demand it - but no one wants to hear the truth. Home Sellers can go BALLISTIC when hearing anything negative about their home. The questions of the day should Buyer Agents give every detail of what the buyer liked or did not like. Should the buyer agent really say "the home smelled"?
 
Reaching out to the Active Rain family to get your feedback. In my opinion most feedback is very generic and mostly has nothing to do with how the showing really went. A good listing agent should already have walked through the home … (12 comments)

You never know what you will find when you go into a home. You always hope when you go inside to view a home with your buyer, that the home will show well. It is not only the Home Seller's responsibility to get the home ready to sell, but the listing agent's job to let the seller know what to do. SO when one walks into a ho,me and see this.... What you would say?

free: Should I respond to a Low Ball Offer? - 11/29/14 05:24 AM
I got a call from a Home Seller who said they did not receive "even 1 good offer" in the last 6 months their home was listed. I asked why the offers were not good. The seller responded "that their agent told them they were low ball offers, which are not good.". I asked what they countered the offers with. I heard nothing but crickets. "Uhhh? What? counter offer, why?
 
It seems their listing agent told them to ignore all the offers as they were low ball offers which only "not so serious" buyers make....

free: Can you price a home right by flipping a coin? - 11/26/14 05:39 AM
Did you ever wonder how a home is priced? Who sets the value? Some may think they draw a number out of a hat, maybe flip a coin and some choose the highest priced neighbors home that sold and then price theirs higher because their home is much better than the neighbors. Although it does bring a chuckle, pricing a home wrong is 1 of the top 2 reasons a home does not sell.

In 1807 a canal and locks were finished so that ships could bypass the Amoskeag falls.
 
Wikipedia writes that the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company was a textile manufacturer which founded Manchester, New Hampshire. From modest beginnings in near wilderness, it grew throughout the 19th century into the largest cotton textile plant in the world. At its peak, Amoskeag was unrivaled both for the quality and quantity of its products.

How do you know if you hired the Best Listing Agent? Some will say your home sells. However other home owners may say when things go right. Yet others will say when things went wrong, my agent fixed them without batting an eye. The hard truth is it is a mixture of setting the correct asking price. Informing the seller how the selling process works. Having a great marketing program to attract buyers. Negotiate the best offer that works for the seller.
