manchester: What do YOU do when you see a Short Sale that is WAY UNDER PRICED? - 02/26/14 05:02 AM
Have you ever seen a Listing that is so Under Priced you just have to get your Buyers to it? Perhaps your investors or maybe even yourself. It is not a new trend to Under price short sale listings to get a HUGE response and multiple offers, But it is a trend where people should have learned their lessons.  Here in the Manchester NH area there still are some Home Owners who may owe more than the home is worth. They choose an agent full of promises but little to no experience in short sales. The agents answer is to price it super low, … (30 comments)

manchester: WHY does the Yard Sign say COMING SOON? Is it a Bank Owned Home? - 02/25/14 05:27 AM
WHY would one put a yard sign listing a home FOR SALE but then put "coming soon" if the home is not ready to be sold. This question is featured today as written by one of my favorite Bloggers Dick Greenberg simply titled COMING SOON. What is gong on with these signs? As a leading Listing Agent of Bank Owned Homes in the MANCHESTER NH. area, I can tell you the Banks and asset management companies who assign these listings, make the agent put a sign up on vacant properties as of day 1.

manchester: Why would I NOT want to wait until spring to Sell? - 02/24/14 01:42 PM
Why should I list now if it only gets busier in the Spring? A home Owner was very firm that they wanted to wait until Spring is actually here. They said we can not have a spring market until the snow is melted, flowers are blooming and kids are getting out of school. Unfortunately what he is not see ing is that RIGHT now is the Best time to sell, even better than when spring arrives in NH. With a shortage of homes listed for sale in the MANCHESTER NH. area, Buyers are ready to act quickly to find their dream … (11 comments)

manchester: Can you see that new home over the snow banks? - 02/23/14 02:11 PM
Can snow help you sell your home? An interesting call from a Buyer who was stopped in front of my Listings telling me the newly fallen snow looked so pretty she needs to see this house. As winter holds on tightly in the Manchester NH area, there is no doubt the spring market has started although it is only winter. Ultra low interest rates right now and a fear they will rise are spurring buyers to start the buying process now.

The market here is like many other areas of the country where you will find a market that has a lighter inventory of homes … (7 comments)

manchester: What is the Best type of Home to buy? - 02/21/14 01:44 AM
An interesting question was posed to me where the Home Buyer wanted to know what the best type of home to buy was, if he was to live there for say 5 years, and be the best investment for him." The FIRST thing to note is then when buying a home to live in, the most important thing is the home will be comfortable and fit you and your family for the time you live there. Here in the MANCHESTER NH. area we have a nice selection of homes and neighborhoods that are well desired. With home prices and Interest rates … (3 comments)

manchester: WHY isn't my home worth more then my Neighbors house? - 02/20/14 05:29 AM
My home should be worth more than my neighbors because after all, it is mine. Great in theory but not so much when it comes to today's Real Estate market. Today we look at a home that has been for sale for over 6 months with one of those "big time" listing agents. I sold a home on his street not too long ago so the Seller contacted me to find out why his house is not worth more than the house I sold. He should be concerned more with why his home has not sold. I believe deep down he … (6 comments)

manchester: HOW do I know what a home is really worth? - 02/18/14 05:30 AM
How do you know what the value of a home is? We get calls and emails from both buyers and Sellers wanting tio know what a home is really worth. Some are just home Owner's who are curious, some home owners want to sel and other need to sell. From the buyer side, home buyers want to know what a home is worth so they know what to offer. The key is to acknowledge that value in a buyers eyes may be different from a value in a home owners eyes. Here in the MANCHESTER NH. area, we are one of … (9 comments)

manchester: How many BUYERS does it take to SELL a Home? - 02/17/14 05:44 AM
How many Buyers should you let see a home before you accept an offer? That was the question of the weekend for a new listing. To set the scene a new listing hits the market. They ask for a few days to get the home ready before showings can start. I( have buyers ready, willing and able to buy in this very neighborhood. The home was listed at the higher end of the market value based on the homes the same age , same size and all in the same neighborhood. With a shortage of homes listed for sale in the … (16 comments)

What is gong on with Bank Owned Homes in your area? With a shortage of homes For Sale in the MANCHESTER NH. area, home buyers are looking to Bank Owned homes to find their Dream Homes. There seems to be a steady supply of foreclosures, but not at the level we saw in 2008 and 2009. The one that that has not changed is the confusion of what a Foreclosure is and how to buy one.
 
To start a home in the Foreclosure process is not Bank owned yet, it is still owned by the Home Owner who is … (12 comments)

manchester: Can i use the buyer Agent commission as my down payment? - 02/13/14 05:33 AM
One particular Buyer asked if they skip using a Buyer broker, can the commission that buyer Agent would have earned be used as their deposit. Buyers are Looking for any way they can to take advantage of the ultra low interest rates by buying a home now. Some are misguided in the shortcuts they are looking to take. Here in the MANCHESTER NH. area and throughout virtually every state, it is illegal to pay a person who does not hold a valid Real Estate license a commission.

manchester: HOW do you expect me to Sell your home? - 02/12/14 05:10 AM
Can houses really sell themselves? Simply put no... so when a Home Seller stays home to follow us around their home during a showing asking if i will be selling her home and asking the buyer if they will be buying was kind of irritating. We were her first showing in near 6 months and she is lucky we were there. the potential buyer was related to a buyer who i sold a home to in this popular MANCHESTER NH. neighborhood. Otherwise we probably would have over looked this home. You want to know why? The owner told me they have … (15 comments)

Why are some Buyers getting to take advantage of the Ultra Low interest rates and Buy their dream Homes while other Buyers can not?

manchester: Do I have to tell a Buyer if i know something is wrong with my house? - 02/10/14 06:02 AM
What do you have to disclose and what can you hide? Asked a Home Owner looking to List their Home. I was interviewing with the owner when they asked me this. The correct answer is a seller has to disclose everything they know. They did not like my answer and told me another agent from a BIG company told they did not have to say anything. lI let them know that whether selling a home in the MANCHESTER NH AREA,. or anywhere, the correct thing to do is to disclose everything on the Seller property Information report.
