How do you get the BEST DEAL as a buyer? That is a question I hear often. Just today though, a Buyer called and asked what percentage off an asking price they should offer on a Manchester NH area home? They told me they had looked at homes the last month with several agent but did not hire any of them to be their buyer agent. Their co-worker referred me where they Googled me and found one of my Active Rain Blogs. Speaking to so many agents with so many opinions, they were really confused.

 

 

THE BOTTOM LINE is that there is no set percentage any buyer should be deducting to come with an offer.

 

You do not know if a homes asking price is at market value. Way above and requires a much lower offer or is already priced below market value and may sell over asking price.

 

The first step is assessing what the home is worth in today's market. Second is such factors as what type of seller, why they are selling, if there are any other offers and how bad do you want the home.

 

THE SECRET OF SUCCESS is often knowing it is easier to find a buyer than get a home closed. The key to having a successful Home Sale or Purchase can increase simply by choosing a better agent.  One that explains each step of the buying or selling process and stands by you throughout each. The secret is, that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. I leave you with now infamous philosophy, which is simple, to provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process.

THE TOP TIPS TO FIND A "GREAT" REAL ESTATE AGENT

 

 1. LEARN THIS ONE FACT: One should know that All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest Agent or Company. It is important to Hire the BEST Agent. In NH that could be me.   

2. CHOOSE THE RIGHT AGENT: As a Buyer OR Seller in this market you need every advantage you can to get your home sold. It starts with choosing the right agent. a. Ask for a Full time agent whose sole job is to sell homes. b. Ask for a Full service agent who will guide you through each step of the selling process. Discount brokers often equal discount services. c. Ask for a Local agent who knows your neighborhood and is readily available when you need them is a must. Out of town agents can leave you high and dry in your time of need. d. Ask for a well experienced Listing Agent can give you the advantages you need when selling your home. Not all agents are created equal. Choose only the best.
