steve loynd nh realtor: Post and Pray is not OK…and not with snow photos in May. - 08/16/14 02:39 AM
If you are going to post and pray, at least change your snow shots by May (no snow in August).


I work in the ski resort real estate business and the winter sports are what makes second homes sell. I get that and I too will leave a beautiful shot of a winter scene with in the listing’s (up to 36 pictures) marketing photos…but when it’s your cover shot. The first shot seen when you open the MLS listing…the picture shouldn’t have snow on it in August.

I Get when you can illustrate a shot … (3 comments)

steve loynd nh realtor: Slope side home site on Loon Mt - Lincoln New Hampshire - 08/15/14 11:33 PM
Loon mountain is the most popular ski resort for the Boston / Massachusetts's a two hour ride all highway and the reward for your trip is great skiing. The best man-made snow coverage in the east, and a great little town to entertain and enjoy when the skiing is done for the day or over for the season.

From the summit of Loon looking north...this is why we ski and climb mountains.

The Adirondack style homes are approved by an architectural design process, so the completed homes are all spectacular (the one pictured above shares a side boundary with the subject … (18 comments)

steve loynd nh realtor: Loon Mountain New Hampshire...I'm selling as fast as I can - 07/17/14 11:50 PM
When you want something done quickly give it to someone who is already busy...
I don't often take stock of my sales activity during the course of the year. But once in a while a client will ask: "Tell me why I should list with you? (or) Why should I hire you to be my buyer's rep?" Those are very good questions, and the proof is in to pudding as they say.  I looked back from one year ago today at my own transaction and found the mix to be what I expected...but frankly I'm so busy I didn't count the numbers … (2 comments)

No Trespassing-Heck- I go into homes of people I don’t know for a living.  I'm a New Hampshire White Mountain area Realtor !

           Glacial Park, Thornton New Hampshire.
 You’ll know you are on the right trail when you discover the remains of a cabin that marked the entrance to the park. The cabin most likely served as a place to for ticket purchases and souvenir sales. If it weren't for the stone construction of the fireplace, there would have been no signs of its existence.

steve loynd nh realtor: New Hampshire waterfall hike...Bridal Veil Falls - 06/01/14 11:33 PM

Bridal Veil Falls is a scenic cascade on the northwestern side of a ridge between Cannon Mountain and The Cannon Balls. It is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in New Hampshire. Coppermine Brook pours through a narrow spot in a high ledge, then widens as it plummets, resembling the shape and color of a bride’s long, lacy veil. The approach to the falls is a pretty hike. It follows Coppermine Brook most of the way, which has numerous pools that will delight your dog.
Directions…Take Route 116 south from the center of Franconia (Exit 38 off I93)…you … (11 comments)

steve loynd nh realtor: Marketing Vs Price, win the listing & be thier trusted advisor for life. - 04/13/14 01:21 AM
Marketing Creates awareness – While price creates activity.
Seller's often think more ads equal more activity…this is not what the data shows in the real world. 200 Realtors were recently polled… “How many of you have sold The Property to the person who called on That property ad” in the last 6 months? The answer may surprise the consumers but not the Realtors in the room. About 5% said the caller bought the house they called about.
Ask your seller “would it be Ok –if you paid for print Ads for the next 6 consecutive weeks…knowing the callers … (25 comments)

steve loynd nh realtor: New Loon mt NH Condo listing...will be on the market by March 2014 - 02/14/14 05:02 AM
These Forest Ridge Condo owners will be moving to a slope side home "yet to be built"... so there is no rush to get the listing ready to show. The Problem is - the next two weeks are school vacation weeks and that means a lot of missed traffic. What is a Realtor to do? Blog about the upcoming listing, and hope the right buyer will wait a few weeks to see it.
As you can see these duplex condos offer a distant view of the ski slopes, they also offer a very nice Club house with ample recreational choices … (3 comments)

Back in the late 1800's a road crew working to establish a route through a difficult mountain pass came along these beautiful falls. Many other sites were found in a similar manner (Sabbady Falls Rte 112)...I'll share a few I find enjoyable in the area in and around where I list and sell properties..
