If you are looking to OBTAIN A  MORTGAGE, whether in the Manchester NH area or  across the country, you certainly do not want to get 'TRICKED" instead of getting to enjoy the "TREAT" of getting a Loan Approval to purchase your new Dream Home..
Each step of the buying process can said to be equal for a successful purchase. Unless you have cash though, without a mortgage there can be no purchase.

SELLING your Home can be much like TRICK or TREAT as you do not know what you will get without doing your homework. Some Manchester NH area Home Sellers wonder which they will get when the hire a Real Estate Agent. It does not have to be that way though.

manchester: Should Kids Come Along to Look at Houses? - 10/16/13 03:52 PM
One of the most common questions from buyers is if their kids can come along when looking at homes. There are many other Buyers who just bring them without any planning. Donna does an excellent job in answering the question and providing some nice tips.

First, kids, no matter what age, usually only last for about … (0 comments)
