manchester: Let me share one of the STRANGEST ways to get a Home SOLD - 12/07/13 05:47 AM
There are some strange ways to get tips to get one's Home SOLD, but a Manchester NH area Home Owner went to extremes yesterday. They called and asked to see a home I have listed For Sale. The key here is it was not until we were in the home they began to compare this home to their own. It was then they told me they lived down the street and owned the home listed for sale with a "national" company. They than began to pepper me why I have had so many showings and they have not had any. I actually already … (9 comments)

manchester: I don't care whose Bigger or Better - Can you SELL MY HOUSE? - 12/06/13 06:15 AM
There are some Home Sellers who have done their homework and their calls and emails usually reflect it. When a Manchester NH area Home Owner calls and states they have seen many ads with every company claiming to be the "Biggest or the Best". What she wants to know is "Can I get her Home Sold?" I sure can I replied. The consumer proceeded to tell me that I sold a home in her neighborhood a couple of years back. She recently came across my blog and knew I was the one to call. 
 

During the conversation she said she LOVED the … (35 comments)

manchester: Should you Always take the HIGHEST OFFER when SELLING A HOME? - 12/05/13 05:46 AM
Isn't the HIGHEST PRICED OFFER the one that Home Sellers should always take? Asked a Manchester NH area Home Owner. Why then do my sales keep falling through??? It was soon apparent why this home had been pending so many times and had seen each of the sales falls through. Choosing the Highest Offer may not always be the BEST offer. "How is the Seller supposed to know what is good and what is bad?" was the next and possible the best question.
 

A Listing agents JOB is to go over each and every offer and explain it to you before you … (14 comments)

manchester: Are you Noticing an Increase in FORECLOSURES in your area? - 12/04/13 06:43 AM
What does it mean that there is an increase in Foreclosures in many areas once again? Here in the Manchester NH area I have seen a sharp increase in new foreclosure postings and an increase in auctions. Before you jump up from your chair though, what if I told you this was a good thing. As a Leading REO agent in my area, the conclusion is it is necessary to clear all the vacant and no performing loans from the Banks books. Most homes are 1 to 3 years behind and many have defaulted on Loan Modification that were meant to save them.

manchester: HOW did YOU get that new Real Estate Listing? - 12/03/13 05:38 AM
Is anyone noticing less homes For Sale these days? Here in Manchester NH area the amount of Homes listed For Sale is down. The reasoning is two fold. There are less new listings come on the market and Buyers are buying at a steady base to take advantage of ultra low interest rates before they may rise in the spring. The homes listed right, priced right and marketed right can sell in days while other listings can sit for months if not listed right.

Some agents are not always so happy when another listing gets a new listing. A call yesterday asking how … (4 comments)

manchester: If I purchase a Home at Auction, Can I get a Mortgage to buy it? - 12/01/13 06:03 AM
In case you did not notice, there has been a sharp increase in AUCTIONS as of late. With a shortage of Homes listed For Sale, Many Manchester NH area Home Buyers are asking how they can purchase some of these homes. Many do not know how an auction works. To make things More difficult, Banks are changing the style and terms of auctions. The different types of auction have similar rules where most are sold AS IS and do not allow contingencies such a home inspection or a mortgage. Let me review the different type of Auctions. 

FORECLOSURE AUCTION: Typically are cash only and most close with in 30 days … (7 comments)

WHY do some homes SELL in a Month, a Week or even a day while other  Manchester NH area Homes sit for 6 months or more and never Sell? This is one of the frequent questions I hear. We are experiencing a market that has a shortage of homes FOR SALE, a steady supply of BUYERS looking to buy to take advanatge of the Ultra Low Interest Rates but the days on market are increasing?

What a day... Who said things slow down for Thanksgiving? Listings, Showings, writing contracts, BPO's and REO's oh my... 12 1/2 hours on a Satur\day was not today's plan.
