help: HOW much time do you see Buyers taking to write an offer? - 01/29/15 05:22 AM
Once a Home buyers says "That is my Dream Home" how long do you see them waiting to write an offer? I am seeing an interesting pattern and when reading a question in the  Active Rain,  Q and A section by Praful Thakkar  it made me wonder what other people were seeing. With a new Bank Owned Listing last Friday priced to sell I had a dozen showings in the first 2 days and a handful of offers over last weekend. Needless to say, first thing Monday morning one offer was chosen and the home went under contract. Many buyers felt they … (8 comments)

Would anyone BUY a Home during a Snow Storm? You bet!!! When a Buyer is ready to buy, nothing will stop a motivated Buyer. Saturday which is typically one of the busier days to show homes for sale, saw a 6 inches of snow fall in NH. It was a light fluffy snow. But panic had set in some.

help: Would you rather work with a mean person or fall off a roof? - 01/23/15 05:32 AM
Drastic times require some hard core writing in today's blog. When a new Bank Owned listing hits the market, it is a given my marketing will attract a HUGE response filled with showings and multiple first day offers. Buyers and their Buyer Agents will jockey for the best offer. Some will opt to play games and offer some crazy low ball bids that knock them right out of the mix. A very small segment may opt for trickery. So when one agent ordered, stomped and even screamed that " I " needed to get up on the snowy roof to take … (47 comments)

help: WHY would a Buyer ask for a SECOND SHOWING? - 01/21/15 05:09 AM
I have heard a lot of questions while listing and selling real estate, however yesterday a home seller in the Manchester NH area whose home I took my Buyer through, said NO to a second showing when we made the request to see the home again on Thursday.
To set the scene I was representing a buyer, we asked to see a new listing which we did yesterday. The buyer liked it but wants to bring their family through Thursday and perhaps write an offer. The sellers reply was "you just saw the home, you don't need to see it … (42 comments)

help: How a TV can make for GREAT ENTERTAINMENT during a Home Showing - 01/14/15 02:09 PM
What do you think about background music during a Home Showing? Now how do you feel about a Television set playing in the background? Today during a Home Showing in the Manchester NH area we met the Listing Agent who let us in. The TV SET was BLARING loud. Before we could as "WHAT THE HECK?" The agent explained the occupants leave the sound up top entertain the pets and to act as a security system,
As we digested that, I really wanted to ask why she could not turn the set down while the buyer was there and then … (26 comments)

help: Buy a Home - GET A FREE BOAT - 01/13/15 06:02 AM
I have heard of genius marketing plans then there is. I met with an person who bought a water front home, fixed it up into a show place, moved in a few years ago and now needs to sell. He said anyone who offers Full price will get to keep his boat for FREE. Up front it sounds like a great idea however when I heard his asking price, The genius turned to a Jester.
Why would any buyer want to pay $60,000 higher than market value for a $20,000 boat? They can over market value and buy 3 boats … (24 comments)

When it comes to damage, do you Fix it or Leave it? I went on a Listing appointment on a home that had gone unsold after 6 months with another agent. Even though there was snow on the lawn, there was dead weeds still 2 foot high sticking out of the bushes in the front and a snow covered lawn mower sitting where it ended its mission. Entering the home the carpets were completely stained. They gave me a tour and made lots of notes. The first thing they said was they want to set an asking price that includes offering … (28 comments)

help: Who Should or Should not attend the Home Inspection? - 01/10/15 05:31 AM
Who should be at the Home Inspection? There is so much conflicting advice your head can spin. Should the buyer be there? How about there agent? What about the Seller or their agent? How do you know what is right? We can look to yesterday where a buyer purchasing one of my listings shows up for the inspection and tells me their agent "did not have time" to attend the inspection. Now we have a buyer on their own to face the inspector. The inspector they chose rushed through the home. He threw out building terms and the buyer was completely … (22 comments)

help: What is more DANGEROUS - The Cold Weather or a Bad Offer when buying? - 01/08/15 05:28 AM
The temperature bottomed out at -6 this morning. There is a 2 hour delay for schools and my first morning appointment canceled. However although the Cold is dangerous, the conversation I just had with the buyer agent who canceled was more troubling.
Their offer on my new Listing was REJECTED. There was 6 offers in total, they knew that ahead of time and you would think had an advantage knowing that so they could put in their best offer possible. However because the Buyer Agent thinks they know everything, their offer about 30% lower than asking price asking for … (18 comments)

help: TOP 10 reasons it is NOT TOO COLD to Look at houses Today - 01/06/15 07:33 AM
Is it possible to be "too cold" to look at homes? Winter has finally arrived in New Hampshire, today's temperature is 14 degrees and people are canceling looking at homes for it being "too cold". Perhaps being spoiled by it being 60 degrees on Christmas Day, but this is New England after all. What is worse is one such buyer who called me directly because it was their agent that canceled the showing, not them.
With a shortage of homes for sale in some markets and a strong supply of Buyers looking to take advantage of the ultra low interest … (21 comments)

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!! 2014 seemed to fly by. We saw lots of changes with the MANCHESTER NH Real Estate Market. They year started with the busiest Winter we had seen in 29 years as buyers gobbled up every listing in sight, many that had been on the market for nearly a year. Sellers were realizing they needed BETTER Listing agents and made the switch and were often rewarded with a sale. As Summer came sales slowed as the amount of homes for sale slowed.
Home Buyers though are very excited and anxious to take advantage of the low … (23 comments)
