free: Would you rather dump hot coffee on you or List a messy home? - 01/28/16 06:00 AM
The phone rings and the lady tells me "no one will list my home as they say it is too messy". I list and sell Bank Owned homes, messy does not scare me. I headed over to this Manchester NH area home. Looking back it was listed for a year and went unsold. I arrived and the exterior was over grown, but not filled with debris. The owner came out to meet me, she was older, frail but in good spirits. She was full of stories and loved to make people laugh. We went inside and i was pleasantly surprised. It was not messy, was … (64 comments)

free: Did you get a call yet about WINNING POWERBALL tonight? - 01/13/16 06:47 AM
I got the call, "How soon would we be able to close on your new listing if we win Power ball tonight?' Still a little shocked and not knowing who was calling, my response was "With any cash sale you can close in as little as 7 days if the seller is ready, you have the funds and your lawyer can work that fast.
 
The phone was ringing off the hook on this new Manchester NH area home Listing, so I didn't want to really ask, but had to... Before I could ask the woman went on to tell me everything she would do IF she won Power ball tonight. … (21 comments)

free: Did you hear the story about How Toilet Paper KILLED A HOME SALE? - 01/10/16 06:22 AM
You may have seen sales go down the toilet, however not too long ago, toilet paper tried to kill a sale. During a long home inspection the would be buyer "had to go".  They used the sellers bathroom. Late that night a frantic home seller called in a rage. "Some one used their bathroom and to not deny it".  How did they know you ask?

free: WHY do Real Estate Agents stay away from Short Sales? - 01/07/16 05:49 AM
Who would think in 2016 we would be having this conversation? There was a huge controversy that agents purposely keep buyers away from short sales unless they are cash buyers. Here in the Manchester NH area although very minimal these days, still are seeing some short sales. I can say it MADE MY BLOOD BOIL!!!
 
Most people do not even know what a Short Sale is. Sadly some agents do not know either and even worse, many agents who have no experience in listing, negotiating and selling short sales are taking short sale listings in toady's market. The problem starts with home sellers who should really make sure their agent is WELL … (10 comments)

free: Is the word STARTER HOME Offensive to some Buyers? - 01/06/16 05:17 AM
Are STARTER HOMES good for the market? The Home itself, yes. The word Starter? Maybe not so much and I will tell you why. There was this a  Home in the Manchester NH area. who had been for sale for 9 months without selling. It is in an established area, many neighbors who have lived there for 30 to 40 years. A Ranch style home, updated and in good condition. The price seemingly right where it should be in the low 200's. They came to me fuming that their home had not sold with their big national agent.
 
They handed me a print out of … (31 comments)

What is your guess? The answer in this story is 3. You see there was a vacant home that just expired with it's second listing agent in 9 months. I was called for interview to list it. I arrived to a dark home. was welcomed by the owner who had moved out of state last spring who came back for the first time since to see why it has not sold. As i walked through this Manchester NH area home, most light bulbs were burnt out or missing. A spider web swayed down from the chandelier. Upstairs the slider was open and it is … (25 comments)
