There it was, those golden words "Ready to move in Bank Owned Home". Something does not seem right... so i had to check it out. Ready to move in means it is ready to move in. No work needed. Typically bank owned homes are far from ready to move in and with a play on words, This home is not quite ...

A very IRATE man screamed "Who you calling a "FSBO"?" Pronounced Fis-bo, which stands for For Sale By Owner. As he was selling his home himself in the Manchester NH area, he received one of my marketing postcards that has a cute little "Fsbo" sign. Not knowing what it meant, he was offended.   Af...

Why is that home so cheap asked a Home Buyer. They could certainly offer more if they want, but welcome to the world of bank owned homes. I am still seeing a slow but steady flow of foreclosures. Most need a great deal of work, have been vacant for some time and the bank considers them "cash only...

With Nearly half of the State of New Hampshire being either State or National Forest Lands, I guess it's no wonder the woodland creatures have the run of the place. And I'm not talking about the deep dark recesses of the Forest... no right in my back yard on any given day, we find wild life in ab...

Is it possibe to make "many" offers on different homes at the same time asked a Manchester NH area Home Buyer. The simple answer is yes, you can make as many offers as you want, as long as you are prepared to purchase every home you made an offer on. There is a better way and that is being pre-qu...

Why would a Home Buyer want to "Test the waters?" Yesterday I wrote an Active Rain Blog about a home seller asking to do just this. Some of the comments got me thinking of a Home Buyer who had asked just this last month. What exactly does it mean when someone is testing the waters? My immediate t...

What exactly does it mean if a Home Seller is testing the waters? My immediate question when a Home Seller states they would like to test the market is that they can not be that serious about selling the home. I did listen to what they wanted, what their goals were and most important why? Being t...

Should a Home Buyer open the refrigerator when looking at a home listed For Sale? The answer my friends. In most cases yes. There is a "however" though, when it comes to selling REO homes, also known as Bank Owned Homes or Foreclosures. For those we have a rule..... DO not open the Fridge. WHY yo...

What would you do if a Home Owner calls and states they want to sell their home because it has ghosts? That is what happened yesterday.

Would you rather know or take your chances? I bet most people would much rather know than guess and be wrong. BEFORE i show any home I always call and ask if it is available and if there any offers already submitted. I must say that all agents do not update the MLS after a home goes under contrac...

 New Construction in New Hampshire on a major Townhouse project is rare, so rare in fact as one well connected appraiser just told us, "you have the only shovels in the ground on a townhouse project anywhere in New England".
