free: Who should attend the Real Estate Closing? - 08/30/15 04:06 PM
Who should be there? Who needs to be there? and who MUST be at a Real Estate Closing? Here in the Manchester NH the Home Buyer and Home Seller attend the closing. Upon signing, a confirmation the buyers funds form their mortgage have arrived and the deal is deemed close. The buyer gets their keys and takes possession of the property. Of course for banks owned homes, the seller mainly signed by mail and only the Buyer attends.
Who else should attend the closing? It is my opinion that the Listings agent, The buyers agent and the loan officer should all be there. Most often … (14 comments)

free: Should I NOT BUY a home If the MLS and Tax card dont match ? - 08/27/15 05:10 AM
What does it mean if the tax card and the MLS have different data for a home? One Manchester NH Home Buyer canceled their sale because the Square footage in MLS was about 150 SF more than the tax card at the town assessor. The seller canceled their listing and was later referred to me. Was this an over reaction? Proper reaction or even an under reaction?
First thing is that the Listing Agent and Buyer Agent should have both individually told their clients what a tax card is. That it is used to based property taxes on. That it is often wrong. That a discrepancy that small is … (11 comments)

free: When should a Home Seller move out when the home is SOLD? - 08/26/15 05:11 AM
There was a great debate when the Seller must be out of a home when it is sold. Is is before it closes? After it closes? How many days before or how many days after is alright? The legal answer to the question is "When ever it states on the Purchase Agreement that the buyer and seller have signed." The problem arose and debate began when it was the day before closing on a Manchester NH area home and the seller had not even started moving. The contract calls for the home to vacant and broom clean at closing.  
For most sales, the … (23 comments)

free: Is there any advantage to listing a condo as a Single Family in MLS? - 08/25/15 02:37 PM
Have you seen Condominiums entered in the MLS as a single family in your area?  Here  in the Manchester NH area there is a trend where listing agents are entering Condominium style homes under the Single Family headings as well as under condominium listings. It is causing confusion and in some cases chaos. What do you think about this trend? More exposure for your listing or keeping away buyers?
Many Buyers are starting their search online. Many of the online Real Estate sites then expand the confusion when the syndicate or promote these listings under the wrong header.
I am a true believer in "Truth in … (18 comments)

free: Will the drop in STOCK Market affect the Real Estate Market? - 08/24/15 06:14 AM
A seller calls and says "Here we go again". As I pondered what he was talking about, he starts with his take on the sharp decline in the stock market. I watched all the morning shows today getting some insight if this is here to stay or just a correction that soon will be right back on its steady track. The good news is the Real Estate Market should not be affected by the swings on wall street.
The facts are interest rates are still ultra low.  with a slow but steady increase in values Buyers are ready and willing to … (19 comments)

free: Before showing a Home - Do you call and ask if it is still available? - 08/23/15 05:21 AM
Call me crazy, but BEFORE i show any home I always call and ask if it is available and are there any offers already submitted. In the Q and A section an agent is irate that anyone would call the listing agent to ask this. First I must say that all agents do not update the MLS after a home goes under contract. That is also the case alot of times here in the  Manchester NH area.
Therefore I feel it is my duty to know this information before showing my client a home that may not be available. Why get them excited about … (40 comments)

free: Are Real Estate Agents ALL THE SAME? - 08/21/15 05:05 AM
Does it really matter who I list my home with, aren't Real Estate Agents all the same? That was a statement made by a  Manchester NH area home owner 6 months ago yesterday, How do i remember that? Well the home seller called me yesterday to tell me "I was right" that it does matter. Her home just expired after 6 long months going unsold with one of those big time companies. She asked if she could take me up on my FREE Market Analysis still. 
Later today I will be heading over to meet her, complete a BPO and let her know … (19 comments)

free: Will you Include the CAT with the Sale of your Home? - 08/19/15 09:19 AM
Someone said the only bad question is the one not asked. However when a buyer yesterday asked if the Manchester NH area home owner would include the cat with sale, i had my doubts. The Buyer was quite insistent on me asking the Seller prior to her making an offer. Would you ask the Seller?
Later in the evening the Seller came home and i went over to see her. I told her I had a strange request and asked her to not be upset by this question. I asked her and she sat there staring at me. For the few seconds of silence which … (31 comments)

free: Does this Home Look like it is "READY TO SHOW?" - 08/17/15 05:52 PM
I need you opinion. I was told the house was READY TO SHOW by the national preservation company hired by the bank. The price was set and bring on the Buyers. What do you think? The life of a Real Estate is said to be glamorous. Those adventurous agents like me, will List and Sell REO homes, also know known as Bank Owned homes.  This Manchester NH beauty is a cash only sale.
They love to give me the challenges, because i come through. Over 10 offers in 24 hours all cash with no contingencies.

free: How DARE you take a day off - Should Real Estate agents take time off - 08/16/15 07:10 AM
Should Real Estate Agents be able to take a day off? Some people think not. Well yesterday was a semi national holiday around New England, as Jimmy Buffett played his annual concert at Great Woods. It is one of the few days i do take off.  Even some present and prior clients/friends all joined us. Our Manchester NH area clients were all taken care of and everyone was very happy and content. Except a new caller who wanted a list of every Foreclosed home in NH on Saturday,
She doesn't think Real Estate  agents should have any time off. She demanded we be available … (19 comments)

free: Does it matter how a Buyer dresses when they go look at homes? - 08/14/15 05:09 AM
As I sat a home yesterday waiting for a buyer to show up at a  Manchester NH home. They pull in and pile out of the car all wearing bathing suits. They are more ready for a beach day then for looking at homes. The wife right away apologies for their attire as they are indeed heading to the beach right after they see the home. I open the door and start my tour. They love the home. They tell me their home in MA has already sold and they are ready to move. 
They head off to the beach letting me know they will … (70 comments)

free: Should a Home Inspection be used to re-negotiate a sales contract? - 08/13/15 04:36 AM
What is the Home Inspection suppose be used for? Most buyers, sellers and agents will tell you to check the structure, mechanical systems, roof, foundation and perhaps for pests. I can tell you with 100% certainty that the inspection period was not meant for "re-negotiating" your sales contract. Yet some Manchester NH home Buyers and their agents are thinking this and trying it.
They are coming up with lists both short and long asking for price reductions or credit back to the buyer for repair items. With a shortage of homes for sale in many markets, Sellers are saying NO. They have had enough leaving … (12 comments)

free: Have you heard about the ceiling fan that almost killed the sale? - 08/12/15 05:35 AM
I often say "common sense has left the building." During a final walk through prior to closing on a Manchester NH home, i represented the buyer and there was an out of town listing agent. Open the door and the living room ceiling fan and light are gone with wires hanging out of the ceiling. Calling the agent they didn't know anything. Checking the contract, yep, it definitely states all fixtures, ceiling fans and over head lights included. 
Panic sets in to the buyer as what else did the seller take? A frantic rush through the home looking up and down and all around. Missing is … (24 comments)

free: How many homes is TOO MANY to show a Buyer in 1 day? - 08/09/15 03:26 PM
How many homes can you show me today asked a Home4 Buyer. How many do you want to see I asked. "About 15-20" sounds fair she replied. Which leads me to ask you, how many homes is "too many" to see in 1 day. For this Manchester NH area Buyer, their list was too large, too many homes and no rhyme nor reason with new homes, old homes, homes that need work and about $100,000 difference between lowest to highest.
In order to know how many homes is too many, It does depend on your buyer and what they are comfortable with and what … (30 comments)
