nh: A whole new meaning to a Foreclosure being a pile of poop. - 08/30/14 07:08 AM
If you you think Listing and Selling Foreclosed and REO Homes is easy, you may want to read this. One particular bank asks agents to attend the Foreclosure auction usually held in front of the property. If the bank buys the home back, the listing is assigned. On this special day arriving early to a ruckus. It was the auctioneer, a couple of investors and now myself. The home owner was in the process of smearing dog poo on the stairs and hand rails.
 
He was yelling, his wife was yelling at him and we all stood back. The auctioneers phone rings, … (7 comments)

nh: Has the color of a home ever scared you or your Buyer? - 08/25/14 05:37 AM
I had a Buyer who refused to even see a dark Blue colored home? Can the color of a home really keep buyers from looking at it? There is a neighborhood of newer homes here in Manchester NH, all Colonial style homes with 2 car garages. Same size, same age, same layouts and built by teh same builder. The only thing that makes a home different than another is if the owner painted it after they purchased it.  
 
When the home they wanted went under contract it only left this home left for sale in that area. Although this … (27 comments)

nh: Is it worth it offering Incentives when Listing a house for sale? - 08/24/14 06:38 AM
What is the best tip you can offer a person wanting to SELL their home? Sellers want an edge and want to know what the secret to a quick sale is. Many offer advice to offer incentives when Listing a home? Many more offer incentives after a home as been on the market for a long time.
The BEST advice is to list the house at the proper price, which is the current market value. 
Forget about tricks, incentives or secrets....

nh: How many offers do you need to sell a home? - 08/23/14 04:14 AM
Should a Seller Wait for a certain number of offers before accepting one?Once again upon a buyer making an offer, a seller and their agent responded by saying "they are waiting for a couple of more offers before answering them."
 
To be blunt, What is wrong with some people to use such a bad plan when selling your home. Every Home Seller would love to have a bidding war on their home, however it takes a certain type of home and having it under priced to draw multiple offers over asking price.
 
Some times the first offer is … (23 comments)

nh: Is there a SECRET to getting a Mortgage in today's market? - 08/22/14 06:09 AM
How do you know if you can get a mortgage? Most Buyers are not sure where to start. There is a right way and a wrong way to start the mortgage process though. 
There is not many days that go by here in Manchester NH where a potential buyer does not email or call asking me if they can get a mortgage. Normally is starts with "my credit score is xxx, can i get a mortgage?" Most are first time buyers just starting the process while there are starting to be quite a few potential buyers who lost homes at the start of recession. My reply … (8 comments)

nh: Does a Buyer HAVE to be pre-approved prior to seeing a home For Sale? - 08/21/14 06:08 AM
Must a Buyer be pre-approved for a mortgage before they can view homes for Sale? When I tell you they may not have to be "Pre-approved" but must be "Pre-qualified" many may scratch their heads asking what is the difference. Getting pre-qualified is a process usually done over the phone where the buyer tells the loan officer how much they make, what their expenses are and gives permission to pull their credit obtaining their credit score.
 
For most Sellers and listing agents being pre-qualified is an absolute must before a buyer can get into to see a home for sale.

nh: WHAT are the Duties of a LISTING AGENT anyway? - 08/20/14 06:03 AM
What is a LISTING AGENT suppose do when they are hired to sell a property? Yesterday there was quite a discussion about whether the Listing Agent should attend the Home Inspection. The basic premise is a Listing Agent should guide the Seller through EVERY step in the Selling process. Some days one of the easiest parts of a sale is finding a Buyer. The hard part is getting it to close.
 
The primary duty of a Listing agent is that they needs to manage the sale. It is the things we can not control that often go wrong or have issues such … (16 comments)

nh: Does a Listing Agent have to attend the Home Inspection? - 08/19/14 04:46 AM
Does the LISTING AGENT really need to attend the Buyer's Home Inspection? This is a common question and one you may hear many answers to. Many will say it is the Buyers Inspection, why should the Listing Agent be there?
The basic premise is that a Listing Agent represents the Seller. Therefore to appropriately guide the seller, the Listing gent should be there to first hand see what is found. Many Buyers and their agents will use the home Inspection as way to re-negotiate the sales price agreed to in the purchase agreement.
The basic types of repairs needed could be classified as … (30 comments)

nh: What does the end of summer mean for the Manchester NH RE market? - 08/18/14 06:11 AM
What does the end of Summer and arrival of Fall mean for the Real Estate market? Typically the fall market sees a sharp increase in new listings and new Buyers entering the market. The summer in New England saw a slow down in new listings but a steady flow of buyers looking to take advantage of the Ultra low inventories.
 
Many buyers who want to be in their new home before winter, have stepped up their Buying efforts. Having a good Buyer Broker that can identify new listings just as they hit the market to get in right away has … (11 comments)

nh: HOW many Homes should I see before making an offer on one? - 08/17/14 07:16 AM
Should a Home Buyer see a certain amount of homes before choosing one of them to make an offer on? When showing my listings yesterday to a Buyer and their agent, the buyer was very excited, they loved the home and asked about making an offer. Their agent told them "they should wait until they see a few more homes before making an offer."
 
With a shortage of homes for sale in some markets and a steady pace of buyers, many of my new listings sell fairly quickly. This by far was the worst advice anyone could give. If you … (40 comments)

nh: How will the arrival of FALL affect the Real Estate Market? - 08/16/14 06:03 AM
"Should I wait until fall to Buy or Sell a home?" is a common question I have heard this summer. Typically the fall market can rival the Spring market for activity. Real Estate tends to slow in the summer heat when many families take their vacations and tackle outdoor projects. In the Northern half of the USA fall is a wake up call for many buyers who want to be in their new home before winter hits.
 
This is no ordinary or average market, so my answer to every Home Seller is if you are ready to sell, NOW is … (18 comments)

nh: WHO pays for any OIL left in the tank at Closing? - 08/15/14 05:17 AM
"How do we know who pays for what?" asked a Home Buyer. They were refusing to pay for the Oil in the tank at closing. Here in NH it is customary for the Buyer to pay a pro-ration to the seller for "fuel in storage." The tank is measured the day before closing and the amount is calculated based on gallons in the tank times the going rate that date at area Oil suppliers.
 
Our standard Purchase and Sales agreement has it already written in that Buyers agree to pay for fuel in storage. They need to cross it out if they … (74 comments)

nh: Is it ever a GOOD IDEA to let a Seller stay in the home after closing? - 08/13/14 07:40 AM
When does a Home Owner have to move out when their home is sold anyway? There seems to be a trend where Home Owner are putting their homes up for sale but have not found a new home to buy. They want to wait until their home sells to buy a new home as they need their home to sell to buy a new one. Basically they want to stay in their home after closing until they find a new home.
 
This came to light twice in recent weeks with a Home Owner whose listing expired saying they could not sell because … (17 comments)
