When should you listen to advice and when should you run from it? Is there a way to know the advice you received is good? Is it valid? or is it wrong? Saturday in the New Hampshire's largest newspaper the Union Leader, their Real Estate edition listed 10 tips for first tome home buyers. It was a story the picked up from the wire from the Orange County Register. When i started reading it, i was amazed at HOW WRONG some of these tips were.

manchester: HOW do you get a Buyer to Buy your home? - 03/28/14 05:32 AM
What is the BEST way to get a Buyer to Purchase one's home? An interesting question from a Home Seller whose home was on the market the last 6 months without any offers. What made this question more real and more desperate, was the follow questions that this seller was desperate for ways to MAKE a buyer, buy their home. The simple answer was you can not "Make" a buyer buy a home. With hardly any showings in the last 6 months, the problem was clear for me. The home was not priced correctly, the home was not ready to show … (21 comments)

manchester: What are the Best incentives a Seller can offer to get a QUICK SALE? - 03/27/14 05:38 AM
What is the BEST way to get your Home SOLD very fast? What incentives should be offered? Those were two questions a recent home seller repeated over and over. As they searched for a short cut or magic pill, the HARD TRUTH was that to get a home sold quickly, you simply need to hire a GOOD Listing agent and price the correctly. Over priced homes are not selling. You can offer any incentive you want, but if you can not get a buyer to see your home, incentives are meaningless.

manchester: Do you think BPO's and REO is easy? Well I have a story for you - 03/22/14 05:47 AM
Does anyone know how Bank Owned home sales really work? Unless you are a BPO or REO agent you may not. You may also not know how scary it can be. In most cases banks will order a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) when a home goes over 60 days late, when foreclosure is started or just before the foreclosure auction itself. The most common BPO is the "Drive by". You simply drive by the home, you take a picture of the front, the address and the street. There is no going on the property and you have no contact with the … (29 comments)

How can you sell a home if the Buyer can not see it? Recently while representing a Buyer, we set up a showing, got it confirmed and showed up at the home. We were greeted with an open door, a very loud TV and a Seller staring back at us. I introduced myself and the buyer and I think he grunted. I asked it was alright to walk through the house and he said "go ahead". We proceeded to view the home.

Should you purchase a NEW HOME or a OLDER HOME? This is a question asked by a MANCHESTER NH. area Home buyer. She was early in her search for her Dream home, and just was not sure where to start.
