help: 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)

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.

She wants an agent there for showings and what the plan is to handle the pets.

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)

help: WHAT the Heck is the Buyer Agent Doing? - 12/06/14 06:03 AM
Some Home Showings can go real well, some may go real bad but then some are just so STRANGE I have to write about it to share with you all. In short while showing a home for sale in the Manchester NH area to a Buyer and their Buyer Agent, Mrs. Buyer Broker was filming the whole showing. Although she was not just filming the home but filming the buyers. She would ask the questions and rush in front of them to film their face as they answered.

help: 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)

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? counter offer, why?
