manchester: What everyone should know about Listing their home For Sale - 06/05/14 11:26 PM
What is the secret to getting a home Sold? You may have heard all kinds of promises, myths and short cuts however there is only ONE tried and true way to get one's property sold. Just as important what you do, is what you do not do.
It starts by avoiding short cuts, avoiding schemes, avoiding focusing on saving a few hundred dollars when you could be losing tens of thousands of dollars. Big flashy TV ads touting bigger is better do not sell homes.

manchester: 5 Reasons your NEIGHBOR may be killing your HOME SALE - 06/05/14 12:06 AM
Can a neighbor really "Kill a home sale" ? You bet they can and most often it is by scaring away potential buyers before they even can make an offer. Take a recent showing where we show up at a home with my Buyer. The listing agent was not present. We went in to view the home, the Buyer LOVED it. Then it was time to check out the back yard where we were met with the neighbors 4 barking little dogs.
Then came the neighbor. Their introduction was priceless when they stated "we will be glad to see … (12 comments)

manchester: Can't I just sit and enjoy the view for a while? - 06/03/14 11:02 PM
What do you think is most important when showing homes to Buyers? I was showing homes at Hampton Beach to a buyer that just signed me to be their buyer broker where all homes were walking distance as it is easier to walk than drive. The Buyer said to her daughter I would love to be able to sit and enjoy this view for a while as we were walking from the first home to the second showing,. I turned and pointed out a bench over looking the sand and water that was open.
The mom turned and said … (13 comments)

manchester: What Sets an agent apart from another in Real Estate is SERVICE - 06/02/14 10:16 PM
What difference does it make which agent I use? Many consumers do not realize there is a difference from one agent to another and what it really will mean to them. SERVICE is the key, however what most people see and get is just the enough service to result in a home selling or not selling and for a Home buyer whether they find and close on their dream home or not.
In Active Rain's June challenge they ask what sets me apart from others in the field of Real Estate. I not only promise but strive to provide … (17 comments)

manchester: Did I miss the Spring market to be able to Sell my home? - 06/01/14 10:36 PM
When is the BEST time to sell my home? That is a question often asked by Home Owners looking to sell their property. One Manchester NH area Home Owner thought because they missed the "Spring market" he would have to wait a whole year to list again.
Typically we do see the most Buyers in the spring, however anytime a home owner is ready to sell can be a good time. In addition, this is not a normal market and nothing is average. There is still a shortage of homes on the market and the amount of Buyers looking … (8 comments)

manchester: Is it OK to purchase a Home with a Well and Septic? - 05/30/14 10:55 PM
"Will I be alright if I purchase a Home with a Well and Septic system: asked a first time Buyer. They come from an area that has public water and sewer. They did not know what a well and septic really were. They did know they were scared to purchase a home that had one. Most rural area's of New Hampshire as well as some suburban area's do not have public water and sewer. It is perfectly acceptable top purchase a home with a well and septic.
As a Buyer, you do have some homework to do to make … (12 comments)

manchester: What is the Standard Discount if I Buy a home with cash? - 05/28/14 10:44 PM
What should CASH BUYERS expect to see for savings or benefits in today's market? A recent buyer of a Manchester NH home was demanding the 'standard" deduction off the asking price of a home. The problem is, there is no standard deduction for paying cash. There are some benefits cash buyers can only enjoy, but it will differ from property to property depending on the who the seller is, what type of property and it's condition.
A cash offer is certainly stronger than any offer with a mortgage contingency. Meaning if you have 2 offers exactly the same price, … (11 comments)

manchester: What does it take to get a Home Sold in Today's market? - 05/28/14 12:18 AM
In the May Active Rain Challenge, it asks What do I believe to be the top success principle required in real estate? I believe to be successful it takes more than just 1 principle to succeed. Real Estate is more than just Selling homes, it is providing service and making Buyer and Sellers dreams come true. Anyone can place a For Sale sign in a year, place the listing in MLS and hope and wish for a Buyer to come to them.
To be a really good agent it starts by standing by your Buyer and Seller through each step of … (10 comments)

manchester: What do you think about Flat Fee Listings? Good or bad for the Seller? - 05/26/14 11:02 PM
Do you really get what you pay for in Real Estate? There are different approaches to List and Sell homes. Some may work well and others may be disastrous. One trend that comes and goes only to come back again is the "Flat Fee" Listing. Sellers pay one fee whether the listing sells or not. Every Home Owner would like to save money when selling their home. However what most articles may not tell you, is the amount of work, the amount of risk and potential losses when things are not done right?
It takes far more work than placing … (26 comments)

manchester: What do you say when the buyers relatives or friends start the bashing - 05/24/14 11:47 PM
Some days the easiest part of selling a home is finding a buyer and the hardest parts of any sale is to getting the home to close. In some cases it happens before they buyer makes an offer, but in others, it may happen after the offer has already been accepted, The buyer brings in their parents, or in some cases their children, they bring in their uncle, cousin, co-worker and perhaps friends. They all have an opinion and soon start to confuse and sometimes scare the buyer.
How do you handle the "spoilers"?

manchester: Are you feeling LUCKY? - 05/22/14 10:16 PM
How LUCKY does a Home Buyer have to be to get their offer accepted? This was a statement recently made on one of my new listings by a Buyer and their agent, the buyer simply said I hope we are lucky enough they accept our offer. The HARD FACT is that luck may have nothing to do if your offer is accepted.
A good offer will usually yield good results. Here in the Manchester NH area we are seeing a small increase in new listings, however there is still a shortage of good listings compared to the amount of … (13 comments)

Are you seeing an increase in Home Buyers Ready to buy? I sure am, however with an increase in Buyers ready and willing to buy, why are they not able to buy? Many do not know where to start.

manchester: How mad does it make you if someone says Real Estate agents are lazy? - 05/18/14 10:46 PM
A feature blog today angered me but then when I thought about it more and more, it was similar to something a Home Seller asked me this weekend who I called as their listing at expired. Mr. Home Seller asked, "Why would Mr. Big time Agent list my home if they were not going to do anything to get it sold?" What can you do better?
You often will read in my blogs that "ALL AGENTS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL." Therefore all agents are not lazy and titles such as that are misleading. There are some very hard working agents … (57 comments)

manchester: Should Buyers base their offers on the assessed Value of the property? - 05/17/14 11:24 PM
Every Home Buyer wants the best deal, the lowest price and to find their dream home. One such Buyer though is basing all their offers on the assessed value from the city tax card. Is this recommended? Is this the best way to not over pay on a home? and what is an assessed value anyway asked his wife?
The assessed value is what a town or city uses to base property taxes on. They can be set every 5 years or more though. Some towns adjust the assessed value higher than true market value and some reduce it to … (16 comments)

manchester: Can a Buyer Agent do all the paperwork if you are selling FSBO? - 05/16/14 11:31 PM
Every one like to save money, so when a Home Owner Selling their home themselves asks if the Buyer Agent can "write up" all the paperwork, you may see the savings may turn to loss quickly. Buyer agents work for the buyer and look to get the buyers the best deal, lowest price and best terms. A listing agent does more than just "write" paperwork. They guide the seller through each step of the selling process.
It starts by the Listing Agent assisting in setting a reasonable listing price while trying to obtain the best sales price. They make … (8 comments)
