nh: How would you handle a Buyer that doesnt know what they want in a home - 04/28/15 05:44 AM
Sometimes a Husband and Wife do not agree with what they want in a home. It can pose a great challenge when starting the Buying process. Take a recent relocation Buyer to New Hampshire where the Husband wanted a new home that "needed nothing", move in ready he said. Then came the wife's request of an older home, with character they  could fix up or restore. She wanted a pool, he wanted a garage. She wanted a first floor laundry, he wanted either a finished basement or one that could be finished. She wanted a home close to the highway, he wanted … (5 comments)

nh: What good is a pre-approval letter if it doesnt mean you are approved? - 04/27/15 05:45 AM
An angry Home Seller wants to know what the use of the being pre-approved is if the letter they received with the offer didn't mean they were actually approved for a loan? The CONFUSION starts that they actually got a "PRE-QUALIFICATION" Letter and not a pre-approval. Many buyers and sellers are confused by the two terms. This sellers sale fell through because the Buyer could not get a mortgage and had a generic pre-qual letter from an internet mortgage company that wasn't worth the paper it was printed on.  She fired her agent and seeks answers to what went wrong.
 
A pre-Qualification usually only looks … (48 comments)

nh: WHY list a home if you dont do anything to get is SOLD? - 04/24/15 05:27 AM
How angry do you get reading this? Meeting with a local group of residents, the talk turned to me when they found out I was in Real Estate. The question posed was "Why would a big national franchise agent list my home if they were not going to do anything to get it sold?" The answer is simple, some agents and companies work off only selling a percentage of their listings. They need a large number of listing's to reach their goal of a "certain percentage".
 
You often will read in my blogs that "ALL AGENTS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL." Therefore all agents … (16 comments)

nh: WHY is my Home NOT SELLING and why are you yelling at me - 04/23/15 05:27 AM
Every time the phone rings, there can be some excitement on the other end. This time it is a very irate woman screaming "Why her house is not selling?" My first question was who she is and what her address is. It is not one of my listings, so why is she calling me and why is she yelling?
 
She tells me she did everything right, she cleaned her home, de-cluttered, spruced up the yard and hired the biggest company she knew of. Looking up her home on MLS, I asked why she decided to call me.
 
While she was thinking, I was able to find … (11 comments)

nh: What do you think of Value Range Pricing in Real Estate? - 04/22/15 05:23 AM
Why would someone offer a home in MLS at a price they were not willing to accept? Recently a Buyer of mine made an offer on a home listed at $250,000 in MLS and in the comments it states it was listed as a "Value Range" Listing of $250,000 to $300,000. The buyer liked it and offered $250,000. The Seller rejected it later countering at $300,000. The result, was an angry buyer who did not under stand why they would list it at a price they would not accept. The seller could not answer why. The listing agent stated that is … (28 comments)

nh: Why Cant Uncle Bob The Plumber in spare time fix the inspection items? - 04/19/15 10:51 AM
Who decides who will fix any issues from a Home Inspection? Different parts of the country have different traditions. We have been getting a great deal of relocation Buyers to NH for our great jobs and fact there is no Income and No sales tax. With the new buyers, comes new thoughts how to handle home inspections. Many Home buyers have used the Inspection to re-negotiate the sales price. 
 
In today's market though, there is a shortage of homes for sale in some markets with an ample amount of buyers ready, willing and able to buy. Many sellers are putting their foot … (24 comments)

nh: How Many Homes can a Buyer make an offer on at the same time? - 04/19/15 05:44 AM
 Can a Home Buyer make an offer on two different homes at the same time? This particular Buyer saw my listing yesterday and soon with their agent. A couple hours later wanted to see it again and said they were bringing an offer. It was assisted, so i met them there, Looking at the name on the offer it was similar to a name on an offer I received on a bank owned listing of mine the day before. I asked their agent if they put in an offer yesterday, she said no.

As they looked over the home again I pulled the offer … (37 comments)

nh: Is Facebook a Deal Maker or a Deal Breaker in Real Estate? - 04/16/15 06:22 AM
Ismple search of their name and a great deal was had by my Buyer.
 
In summary a Listing Agent or Buyer Broker's job is to work with their Buyer or Seller through each step of the buying OR Selling process. That includes discussing how negotiations work, what to say and what not to say. SO thank you Facebook for another great sale.   LEARN THIS ONE FACT: One should know that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest Agent or Company. It is important to Hire the BEST Agent. In NH … (30 comments)

nh: Do I have to do what is written in a Real Estate contract? - 04/16/15 05:50 AM
Did the Buyer really want that done? If it is in the contract, I would say yes. This was not asked by a seller but by the listing agent. In a recent offer on a home both accepted and signed by the seller. The buyer asked the yard be free and clear of all dog poop. The seller had several dogs that ran around in the yard all winter doing their business, none of which was cleaned up. It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out when all the snow melts, what would be left.
 
Fast forward the arrival of spring, all the snow is gone … (17 comments)

nh: How important is having and using a Telephone in Real Estate? - 04/16/15 05:28 AM
Has the telephone gone the way of the pagers, faxes, dinosaur's and travel agents? Yesterday after trying for near 6 hours to reach a Listing Agent I stopped into their office.  They were there and when told I have been calling them all day to get something for our closing, they said "exactly, you didn't reach me because you didn't text me, I don't answer a phone any longer. Get with the times." My response was short and swift for them to get me what is needed to close or this is not closing.
 
Last night as I sat pondering this conversation, my phone rang.  I answered … (29 comments)

nh: Have you Flown lately? If so did you see the NEW trend in Real Estate - 04/15/15 04:55 AM
There is a new trend in Real Estate and I can tell you for sure that if you have boarded a flight, spent time in an airport you may see similarities. Flying US Airways now the "new" American Airlines, there was a sharp distinction between those employees who offered good customer service to the many more who did not. For what you pay and what one is put through, you think they would treat a customer better.
 
What does this have to do with Real Estate? Sitting there waiting for a delayed plane, I hear this woman blurt out "This was as BAD … (19 comments)

nh: Would you let your Cat Sell your home? - 04/09/15 05:26 AM
The phone rings and on the other end is a screaming lady who yells "My cat could do a better a job at selling my home." As i paused looking at caller ID who was calling, she gave me a breathe of relief when she said she listed with !@#$% for the last 6 months and they could not sell water in a desert. I did snicker to myself as I looked up her listing on MLS.
 
She continued on and I did more listening than talking. She invited me over to see her home. The curve ball was she wanted me … (31 comments)

nh: If I dont get a buyer agent, can their fee pay my closing costs? - 04/08/15 05:15 AM
Why would any Buyer think this would work? A Manchester NH area buyer stated they were not hiring a Buyer Agent and would like the fee they would have received used to pay their closing costs. They said they saw it in TV. In NH, a buyer does need their own Buyer Agent. An agent can act as a facilitator or what is known as a "non agent" in some circles. A buyer received an agency disclosure form that explains what each type of agent means and what the duties of each is.
 
 
 
The Seller hires the listing agent at a set fee. The … (27 comments)

It is 8am on Easter, your business phone rings... What do you do? For me, I answered it. It was a home buyer in town visiting relatives who saw a home I have listed. They are leaving after Easter dinner to head home, is there any way they could see it. Lucky for them the seller is away and I was ready to roll. After asking the key questions to make sure they were ready, willing and able to buy a home, I headed to let them in,
