What is your opinion on Monday? The 1st day of the week, a day most people dread. The weekend is over, time to head to work, the phone is ringing, the email tone is dinging, traffic was heavy and work is waiting. After a day off I am ready.

Prices should be coming in on a couple of new bank owned homes that will hit the market this week. Over all I looked … (25 comments)

free: How DARE I be Open on July 3 - I did not know i was suppose to close - 07/04/15 05:28 AM
WHY would any Real Estate agent be working on July 3? It is a Holiday after all according to "Mrs. Big time national agent" who felt the need to call and yell at me for being open on July 3. Seems like a Buyer contacted her to see my new listings, she said she was closed and could not show it. SO they called me, I answered my phone and said yes the house could be shown.
 
On my follow questions are you working with another agent? They said yes, and named her. I told them they would need to contact her … (25 comments)

free: Are you seeing a HUGE slowdown in Real Estate this July 4th week? - 07/01/15 04:50 AM
An amazing thing happened yesterday, A local agent was telling me how slow it was and said it must be because of July 4th coming up? I looked with my jaw wide open as this has been the busiest week before July 4th i may have ever had in 29 years in Real Estate... 2 new listings, 3 offers and 1 closing and it is not even 8am on Wednesday.

free: WHY your home may NOT SELL this Summer - 06/29/15 06:13 AM
Dont you love when people call to yell at you. This morning it was my turn as a Home Seller listed with another company called to demand to know why their home was not selling. Looking it up on MLS it was expired, so i could talk to them, but would they listen?
 
I knew the home, i drive by it a few times a week. Looking in MLS the reasons why it had not sold "SCREAM" out at me. Why did their agent not notice? Well perhaps they were part of the problem. Let me share with you what I see … (13 comments)

free: Should I Purchase an Older Home or a Newer Home? - 06/28/15 05:04 PM
What type of Home is the BEST one to purchase, a newer home or an older home? A buyer called today really confused about what type of home they should purchase. They had been out looking with another agent all day and did not find anything they liked. There were calling about one of my new listings. After a brief conversation they really were not sure what they wanted, what the liked or whether they could even purchase a home. As with any caller, the first 2 questions are do you have a buyer broker and have you been pre-qualifed for … (10 comments)

free: Should a Home Seller tell a Buyer why they are moving? - 06/24/15 06:03 AM
What should the Seller or the Listing Agent say when asked "Why the Home Owner is Selling?" It was debated if it was polite for a Buyer or their agent to even ask this question. The reality is they do and will. Some Buyers truly care what will happen to the seller. Some are (excuse the term) but nosy and want to know more while others want to use that information against them and get the home at a lower price.
 
Home Owners Sell for many reason, most have outgrown their home and want a bigger one. Some have seen their kids move away and … (14 comments)

free: WHY are we seeing a SHORTAGE of Homes Listed FOR SALE? - 06/23/15 06:21 AM
If Home Owners can get top dollar for their homes, why are we not seeing more homes listed for sale? In some areas there is a shortage of homes for sale. In most areas there is a strong supply of Buyers ready, willing and able to purchase. SO if a Home owner was thinking of selling, why are they not listing their homes For Sale?
 
In my daily interaction with consumers and home owners, most often they state they did not know there homes value had increased. I quickly offer them a FREE Market Analysis to let them know what their value is.

free: WHY cant I place any Price I WANT when I put my Home For Sale - 06/20/15 02:50 AM
"Why can't we ask what ever we feel the home is worth?" asked a Home Seller. In brief they can ask anything they want, but do you want to sell the home, or let it sit FOR SALE for the next year? There is a SECRET to pricing a home when it is listed For Sale and I love to tell every one of my potential clients what that secret is when I meet with them. Recently a Home Owner in the Manchester NH area called to list their home. As always I walked through the home, I had prepared a list … (8 comments)

free: What should a Buyer do if asked for their HIGHEST and BEST OFFER? - 06/19/15 05:01 AM
What is a Highest and Best offer? You will see many listing agents asking for them. You may also see some buyer agents frozen in their tracks not knowing what to do or how to proceed. It is a trend that started with bank owned home's where the seller does not counter offer but has buyers up and better their own bids.
 
In many markets there is a shortage of homes. It is not rare for many of my new listings to get 2 or more offers very quickly. Therefore which one should the seller choose. For me, i look for the best price and terms for … (8 comments)

free: Would you let a Home Seller stay in a home after Closing? - 06/15/15 03:18 PM
If a Seller decides they need or want to stay in the home after closing, what would you tell your Buyer? I just went through this scenario and reading the Active Rain Q and A there seems to be others who experience this scenario as well. the simple premise is the the closing happens and the seller stays.
 
The easiest way to prevent future problems is for the Buyer to say "no way - no how".  The buyer should have a walk through just prior to closing and make sure the seller is out, their belongings are out and the home was left clean. If … (27 comments)

free: How do you know if a Home is OVER PRICED? - 06/15/15 05:45 AM
The phone rings and on the other end is a confused caller. They want to know how to determine if a home is over priced. They studied the internet, asked friends and met with different agents all who had different ideas on the subject, Their neighbors house has been for sale for over 4 months and is still unsold. They are ready to sell and think their value is the same as the neighbors house, but feel it may be over priced as it is not selling.
 
I was able to both look up the neighbors house on MLS and then pull up … (14 comments)

free: LOOK OUT the PC Police are watching - 06/14/15 03:12 AM
Want to attract the Wong attention, whether it be to your listing, your ads or your blog post, Yesterday I wrote about the term "Handy Person" or Handyman Special" and how it can scare away more buyers than it attracts. What i did not want to do, is have a debate over what is or is not PC. I was writing about Selling more homes and how home sellers can do that by hiring the right Real Estate Agent.
 
I got a few messages form those PC police that read only part of my post and thought they should chime in without reading … (26 comments)

free: Should the term "Handy Person Special" be used any longer in ads? - 06/13/15 04:40 AM
In the past a Handyman special turned into a Handy Person special, both terms used when a home for sale needed some work. What happens if you are not so handy? Can you not buy this home? "What kind of special are they offering?" was a question asked by a buyer who wanted to hire me as their buyer agent.
 
Dont get me wrong as I am 100% against the political correctness police that state you should not use Great view, short walk or quiet area. When it comes to handy person, are you alienating those buyers who are not handy?
 
Are you … (35 comments)
