manchester: Why you should not wait if you need to Sell through a Short Sale? - 11/12/13 06:04 AM
Short Sales come with the allure of a fresh start, being able to sell a home where you owe more than it's worth and perhaps not having to pay back the difference of what you owed less what it was sold for during the Short Sale. Here in the Manchester NH area, Home Owners are rushing to List their homes before the "FORGIVENESS LAW" that allows your debt to be forgiven expires on Han. 1 2014. If you wait, it may cost you tens of thousands of dollars as most forecasters are saying it will not be extended.

manchester: Is there such thing as a REAL LEASE PURCHASE or Rent to Own? - 11/07/13 05:55 AM
Are RENT TO OWN home deals for REAL? They sound too good to be true. the fact is the amount of inquiries from potential buyers looking for a LEASE PURCHASE in the Manchester NH area is rising sharply. The problems are that not many tenants, buyers and even sellers really know how they work. this is leading to mass chaos and a new breed of schemers.

Buyers are confused... The media states this and the other media states that. Should I Buy a Home in the Manchester NH area now or wait until Spring is two of the the many questions I hear every day.

manchester: Should you list with which ever Agent gives you the highest price? - 11/03/13 05:09 AM
Do you want the TRUTH or would like me to tell you what YOU want to hear? With a shortage of homes Listed For Sale, some agents are boosting the price they tell Home Owners that the home is worth just to get the Listing. This is not a trend that is unique to the Manchester NH area, as I hear it from agents across the country. I wrote about a recent Listing Appointment where a "National" company stated they should list their home 10% to 20% over what they want for their home.

manchester: How much over Market Value should I price my Home at? - 11/02/13 06:13 AM
How do you price your homes For Sale? A Home Owner who was interviewing Listing Agents in the Manchester NH area, stated that an agent from a "National" company stated they should list their home 10% to 20% over what they want for their home. They told me what they thought their home was worth and showed me a number with 20% added to it. They then asked if I would list the home for this price. 

The problem, with this philosophy, is the home's value they proposed is not based on facts, but wishes and perceptions.
