nh real estate: 3 Keys to $elling Your Home: Marketing, Price, and the Buyer Pool - 01/30/12 03:31 AM
The successful sale of any home in today’s somewhat trying real estate market can be broken down into distinct components that are inexorably linked together; (1) marketing the property, (2) the available pool of willing buyers, and (3) price.
Unfortunately, these three components often get blurred and home sellers get confused and discouraged when their home doesn’t sell. They always ask why are so few buyers looking, why has it been on the market so long, and why is no one at least making an offer? Any offer! It is logical that if you have a property for sale and you … (3 comments)

That’s just off the 63 sales last November although the average price was down from $365,623 to just $263,025. There was only one sale over the million dollar mark last month compared to five in November 2010 which contributed to that significant drop in the average sales price. Sales under $200,000 continue to make up over 50% of the transactions while the $300-400,000 range is still struggling badly. Year to date, our total sales are off by just thirty transactions from last year … (3 comments)

There are many times in life that you need to make compromises. You’ll find that you may have to give something to get something. You may have to concede something in order to succeed in something. It is no different in a real-estate transaction. Sometimes a home seller can lose … (2 comments)

nh real estate: More Lakes Region Home Deals - 09/02/11 07:06 AM
It seems like $199,900 used to be the most popular price if you really wanted to sell your home. That number always worked! Finding a house just under that $200,000 mark always seemed like such a bargain, right? I spent a little time on the computer during Hurricane Irene and found that there were 19 homes listed in our area towns at $149,900. There were 15 were listed at $199,900. Maybe $149,900 is the new $199,900? The most popular price, however, was $239,900 with 32 homes listed there. That number has a nice ring to it, too don't you think? Those … (0 comments)

nh real estate: What color is your dream home? - 08/25/11 08:00 AM
According to what I have read on-line, the most popular house color, not surprisingly, is white. All you have to do is look around good old New England and you can see quaint villages full of white houses, churches, and town buildings. According to one article, 37% of homeowners would choose white as the predominate color if they were to repaint the exterior of their home.
 I’d say white is pretty popular here in the Lakes Region, but does one color home sell quicker than another? I found that people don’t really shop for a particular color home as it can … (2 comments)
