help: How can I MAKE a Home Seller accept my Real Estate Offer? - 09/02/14 06:15 AM
What is the best way to make a Home Seller accept my offer? "Many offers were either rejected or I lost out to several other buyers on other homes in the past" asks a Manchester NH home Buyer. 
The first red flag is they lost out on many other homes. The buyer told me they had a Buyer Agent. SO my first question is why isn't that buyer broker answering this question. 
Simply put, a Buyer has to make better offers. In our current Real Estate market there is a slight shortage of homes and many new listings can get several offers on … (10 comments)

help: What happens if they find something wrong in the Home Inspection? - 09/01/14 06:10 AM
Why are many Buyers unprepared for the results of a Home Inspection? Many buyers are not sure what to do when they get the results of their inspection. What do they mean? How do they proceed? What do they need to do? Many buyer agents will use this to try to re-negotiate the sales price, but is this in the best interest of a home buyer?
The most important part for a buyer to note is they should be FULLY informed before making an offer what to expect during the buying process.
Before you make an offer you should … (11 comments)

help: How can you guarantee a quick sale on my home? - 08/31/14 05:35 AM
What is the Secret to Selling a home quickly? This was always a popular question with Home Owners looking for a quick sale, however now they seem to be asking how we can guarantee that home sells. There is no wonder with ads stating they guarantee to sell your home or else.
Or else what? After you read the fine print, sure they may buy it if it does not sell in 60 days but at what price. Maybe half off appraised valued. That is not a very good deal for the seller.
Simply put there are no … (7 comments)

help: Can you trust what you see Online when it comes to Real Estate? - 08/30/14 04:36 PM
It is reported nearly all Buyers and Sellers start their their search for an agent and information online. Can you trust what you are seeing? Just because it is online, it has to be true, right?
You do not have to look far to get some answers to those questions. The majority of listings that have not sold may tell you. The buyer who lost out on their dream home may tell you.  You can not always believe what you see.
Even when it comes to well known national websites, information may not always be 100% correct. Online … (7 comments)

help: A whole new meaning to a Foreclosure being a pile of poop. - 08/30/14 07:08 AM
If you you think Listing and Selling Foreclosed and REO Homes is easy, you may want to read this. One particular bank asks agents to attend the Foreclosure auction usually held in front of the property. If the bank buys the home back, the listing is assigned. On this special day arriving early to a ruckus. It was the auctioneer, a couple of investors and now myself. The home owner was in the process of smearing dog poo on the stairs and hand rails.
He was yelling, his wife was yelling at him and we all stood back. The auctioneers phone rings, … (40 comments)

help: Is it possible to still get a home for HALF OFF the asking price? - 08/29/14 05:36 AM
What is the BEST way to get a discount when purchasing a home? Buyers want a deal. These were questions from a reporter interviewing me for national paper/magazine. There are a lot of factors that come into play how low a price the buyer can purchase a home for. It starts with the market, the economy, the availability of mortgages, the area the home is located, they type of home, style and condition.
The reality check for most buyers is that most areas are experiencing a shortage of listings. The days of half priced listings are long over. There are some good … (16 comments)

When will we see more listings start to come on the market? With a shortage of homes for sale and a steady supply of buyers looking for homes, why are more people not rushing out and listing their homes for sale? asked a Manchester NH area Home Buyer.
With the arrival of fall in New England, the fall market can rival the spring market for an increase in activity. Many home owners feel they need to wait to list until "everyone" lists. The fact is that the best time to list is now, when there are few homes on the market … (14 comments)

help: Has the color of a home ever scared you or your Buyer? - 08/25/14 05:37 AM
I had a Buyer who refused to even see a dark Blue colored home? Can the color of a home really keep buyers from looking at it? There is a neighborhood of newer homes here in Manchester NH, all Colonial style homes with 2 car garages. Same size, same age, same layouts and built by teh same builder. The only thing that makes a home different than another is if the owner painted it after they purchased it.  
When the home they wanted went under contract it only left this home left for sale in that area. Although this … (27 comments)

help: How many offers do you need to sell a home? - 08/23/14 04:14 AM
Should a Seller Wait for a certain number of offers before accepting one?Once again upon a buyer making an offer, a seller and their agent responded by saying "they are waiting for a couple of more offers before answering them."
To be blunt, What is wrong with some people to use such a bad plan when selling your home. Every Home Seller would love to have a bidding war on their home, however it takes a certain type of home and having it under priced to draw multiple offers over asking price.
Some times the first offer is … (23 comments)

help: Is there a SECRET to getting a Mortgage in today's market? - 08/22/14 06:09 AM
How do you know if you can get a mortgage? Most Buyers are not sure where to start. There is a right way and a wrong way to start the mortgage process though. 
There is not many days that go by here in Manchester NH where a potential buyer does not email or call asking me if they can get a mortgage. Normally is starts with "my credit score is xxx, can i get a mortgage?" Most are first time buyers just starting the process while there are starting to be quite a few potential buyers who lost homes at the start of recession. My reply … (8 comments)

help: Does a Buyer HAVE to be pre-approved prior to seeing a home For Sale? - 08/21/14 06:08 AM
Must a Buyer be pre-approved for a mortgage before they can view homes for Sale? When I tell you they may not have to be "Pre-approved" but must be "Pre-qualified" many may scratch their heads asking what is the difference. Getting pre-qualified is a process usually done over the phone where the buyer tells the loan officer how much they make, what their expenses are and gives permission to pull their credit obtaining their credit score.
For most Sellers and listing agents being pre-qualified is an absolute must before a buyer can get into to see a home for sale.

help: WHAT are the Duties of a LISTING AGENT anyway? - 08/20/14 06:03 AM
What is a LISTING AGENT suppose do when they are hired to sell a property? Yesterday there was quite a discussion about whether the Listing Agent should attend the Home Inspection. The basic premise is a Listing Agent should guide the Seller through EVERY step in the Selling process. Some days one of the easiest parts of a sale is finding a Buyer. The hard part is getting it to close.
The primary duty of a Listing agent is that they needs to manage the sale. It is the things we can not control that often go wrong or have issues such … (16 comments)

help: Does a Listing Agent have to attend the Home Inspection? - 08/19/14 04:46 AM
Does the LISTING AGENT really need to attend the Buyer's Home Inspection? This is a common question and one you may hear many answers to. Many will say it is the Buyers Inspection, why should the Listing Agent be there?
The basic premise is that a Listing Agent represents the Seller. Therefore to appropriately guide the seller, the Listing gent should be there to first hand see what is found. Many Buyers and their agents will use the home Inspection as way to re-negotiate the sales price agreed to in the purchase agreement.
The basic types of repairs needed could be classified as … (30 comments)

Should a Home Buyer see a certain amount of homes before choosing one of them to make an offer on? When showing my listings yesterday to a Buyer and their agent, the buyer was very excited, they loved the home and asked about making an offer. Their agent told them "they should wait until they see a few more homes before making an offer."
With a shortage of homes for sale in some markets and a steady pace of buyers, many of my new listings sell fairly quickly. This by far was the worst advice anyone could give. If you … (40 comments)
