I was asked if I could top this mornings Bathroom photo. This home was labeled "move in ready:"  It is another Manchester NH area home that was listed but did not sell.

When you enter an owner occupied home that is for sale, you expect the home to be ready for you and your buyers to see it.

How can you help with a home that is difficult to sell? Is it possible for a home to be doomed to never sell? These were questions from a sobbing Manchester NH area home owner.

Hurry and wait could be the motto of a Real Estate transaction. The best way to get through it, is to be prepared. There is normal waiting and then some, that is not so normal. Knowing what is normal and how to get through that which is not so normal, is a must. Buyers may wait for the perfect h...

Have you ever seen a buyer sabotage another buyers chances of buying a home? I am seeing a disturbing trend that started with keys disappearing from lock boxes every now and then.

Once a buyer shouts "that is my dream home". how long are you seeing them wait to make an offer? In the last week I have seen the best and worst in offer writing.

Does it matter what color the exterior of a house is? Yesterday while out showing homes, we cam upon a home that was "pea soup" green with yellow shutters. It was so awful that buyer balked to even go inside. We initially left the home and on to another down the road. The 2 homes were the same s...

Every day I receive "Thought for the Day" from the Napoleon Hill Foundation. Today's thought reminds me of a verse from the most popular book of all time "The Holy Bible". Proverbs 23:6-7 ~ "Do not eat the bread of a selfish man or desire his delicacies. For as he thinks within himself so is he."...

Is there a minimum number of Buyers that should see a home before the seller accepts a home? Most reasonable people will tel you it only takes 1 showing if the buyer is ready, willing and able to purchase and makes an acceptable answer.

Have you ever thought that "this home will never sell". I showed an owner occupied home over the fall. It was priced low, needed some work and as you can see, was a total mess. Now this is not a bank owned, not vacant and not abandoned. My buyer wanted to be in this neighborhood and loved the pr...
