We have a PROBLEM and we need YOUR opinion. I will break this down later by the view of a Listing Agent and by the view of a Buyer Broker. Should Agents be attending the Home Inspection? This question was quite the talk of another Real Estate web site that was so down and dirty, I refused to leave a comment. But did feel strongly enough to wrote this blog. It may have something to do with what the tradition is for your part of the country how you may answer this. Here in NH, it common for agents to attend inspections, the … (8 comments)

free: Do you know the #1 TRICK to make a Seller take less than asking price? - 10/19/14 03:19 PM
I can tell you One of the WORST ways to convince some one they should lower their price, is to beat up on the home with many reasons why it is not worth what they are asking in that person's opinion. You can not get a TREAT with trying to the TRICK the seller or their Listing Agent. Yes indeed a potential; Buyer ripped apart the home trying to get the seller to lower their value. The result was as expected. A Giant rejection from the seller without even a counter offer.

Are you hearing from Home Seller's that they can not "afford" to use a Listing Agent to sell their home? This however is just another myth as the hard Truth is that "how can they not afford to hire the best Listing Agent? Nearly Every seller will tell you they want to save money, sell at the highest price possible in the quickest amount of time.

free: Should I have more than one agent list my Home? - 10/16/14 06:02 AM
Many Home Sellers want the fastest sale. One of the pieces of advice going around is to list with as many agents as you can. Will it lead to a TRICK or a TREAT for these Home Owners. A Manchester NH area Home Owner called me to do just that. Their thought was having more than one agent will increase the effort and exposure their home will get.
 
The HARD TRUTH though almost knocked this guy out of his chair. You can have 10 agents each giving a 10% effort which may not total one local full time and full … (18 comments)

free: I'm not using a Buyer Broker - Just give me 3% back - 10/12/14 01:16 PM
Did you hear about the Buyer in their haste to save money, who demanded that I take 3% from the sale of the Home, because they would not be using a Buyer Broker to purchase a Manchester NH area Home. I am not sure if they were trying to pull a TRICK or really thought they would get a TREAT??? I do not think they realize that whether they use a buyer Agent, has no affect on the contract between the Seller and the Listing Agent with what or how they are paid to list and sell that home.

Is it possible to get GOOD results from online Real Estate searches? Why are so many homes sold, sale pending or off the market?

A seller was told they should not decorate for Halloween as they are placing their home For Sale in the Manchester NH area. They were offended and started seeking out a different listing agent. They were told told Halloween decorations could SCARE potential buyers away.
 
I was chosen to meet with them. I do not think anything is wrong with decorating for a Holiday. My "however" is that it should be done tastefully. Blood, guts, gore and screaming caskets may be out. There were obviously many agents who disagreed with me as these sellers said that all other agents stated they … (30 comments)

free: How many Buyers is TOO MANY to show a home to? - 10/05/14 01:39 PM
Is it possible to show "too many" Buyers a home? That is what one Listing Agent said who would not confirm a showing. In order to reduce the amount of work and stress for the seller, they are letting the buyers who have already seen the home have a chance to make an offer. If those buyers do not make an offer, they will then allow some other Buyers to see the home.
 
What? Even the worst Real Estate Reality show, home course and or infomercial would not tout such a wild and crazy thought of how to sell a … (11 comments)
