bedford nh real estate: Reasons Why Buyers Are Not Biting In This Market - 10/28/10 01:06 AM
Good Article I came across on Trulia on from Tara Nelson on why buyers are not biting in this market even though rates are low and prices are down.

bedford nh real estate: Good Time For A Home Inspection - 10/13/10 01:34 AM
With the market being in a lagging state, home inspection can show buyers what "as is" really is. It can give them the negotiating edge needed to get cash or repair concessions.
For the seller, a home inspection serves as an anti-haggling tool and keeps the bargaining down as little as possible.  
It is also a good way to estimate a home's integrity after a natural disaster such as flooding, an earthquake or a wind/rain storm.
For someone who does not plan on selling their home right now, having a home inspection done keeps them up to date with what is happening with their home. They will … (2 comments)
