buyer: If you are going to swing a hammer.......... - 05/18/11 07:30 AM

If you are going to swing a hammer...GET A PERMIT!!! 
I cannot tell you the heartache that I've had in the last dozen or so homes that I've sold where the seller, looking to expand their horizons (well maybe that's a bit lofty...they probably just wanted some extra living space) decided to finish a basement. And so they did. Exactly that. Just finish the basement. But, how do you know the town approves of it, and why should you care? There is no other way to know that you have a performed work that is legal without obtaining a permit from the … (2 comments)

buyer: What Happened To Your House Durning The Winter Storm?? - 01/20/11 01:39 AM
With all the crazy weather happening across the north east, I read this and have heard some terrible stories about dangerous walkways and driveways. Worst off, I have heard about some serious water damage to homes currently on the market.
Freezing Rain.  4 Feet of Snow.  Hail the size of golf balls.  With this trifecta of winter weather conditions, I have been driving slowly, dodging 4 foot icicles when showing houses and aappreciating the sand that the sellers have left out for me to use on their slippery walk ways.  However, one thing that I didn't think so much of, but have heard … (3 comments)

buyer: Down Payment for Purchase - 12/21/10 04:19 AM
"While many buyers have taken advantage of low down payment FHA- backed loans, REALTORS in Regions such as, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island & Connecticut, reported that a majority of buyers, roughly 49%, put down more then 6% for their purchase". *
 * This information is from The National Association Of Realtors-It is good to see in Connecticut, about half of the buyers put down more than 6%!!

buyer: Here's a riddle for you.... - 11/29/10 03:48 AM
Q: How can a home buyer go through the entire home-purchase process: make a satisfactory offer; have a satisfactory inspection; receive a motgage committment and attend a closing, but not wind up with a home?
A: By not knowing that there are closing costs that are due... at the closing.
To prevent all of the work and none of the payoff, as well as having a furious client, it is so important to tell your clients what to expect from the process... beginning to end...
The following is a list of cost that I found on … (0 comments)

buyer: Top 10 Reasons to Accept the First Offer that You Get..... - 11/04/10 07:13 AM
(Even when you just know that another offer is sure to be right around the corner because you just came on the market/reduced your home and there's been so much activity...)
10. Because there is never as much activity in the first 2 weeks of listing a home, just based upon momentum.
9.  Because 9 times out of 10 your first offer is your highest
8.  Because reducing your home if it doesn't sell the first few days on the market is the best way to let a buyer know that you will negotiate off your price.
7.  … (7 comments)

buyer: If We Can Walk A Day In Our Clients Shoes.... - 10/25/10 04:43 AM

While recently negotiating a property for my buyers, the sellers were not budging on their price.  When they finally did give us a counter offer, my buyers took a day to decide that they would accept it.  We in the buyer's camp were so happy, they found a great house to buy~call the moving company.  Right?  Well, not until the seller called back and increased his counter to almost asking price.  Cue sound of screeching brakes.  What?  We agreed on terms and now the seller increases their offer?  Who are these people?
Well, I found out … (2 comments)
