As spring approaches, there is many homes that have been For Sale since last fall. They are about to expire. Many sellers are left scratching their heads why they did not sell. Some times here in the Manchester NH, all you have to do is look in the MLS listing why the home may not have sold. Certain words, terms or sentences can and do scar buyers and their agents alike.


OWNER MOTIVATED: If the owner was really motivated, they would have priced the home right to start. They would make it wasier to see the home. They would not have hired a discount agent when they needed full service. 


WILL LOOK AT ALL OFFERS: In other words they over priced the home, but bring an offer anyway to see if we can get you to pay more. 


WILL NOT LAST: If it was not suppose to last, why is the house still for sale 6 months later. AND why has the wording not been updated in 6 months?


ALMOST NEW: It is either new or not. 


VIRTUALLY MOVE IN READY: Wait, it is move in ready or it is not. Perhaps it needs just a little work to be move in ready.


8/4/3 : What? are we playing Bingo. Many consumers do not know what numbers mean when you write in short hand agents use. 


2.1 Bathrooms: Wait, " 0.1 " Bathrooms? Most often we do see 1/2 bath or 3/4 bath. but decimal points now?


I could go on and on, but I need to leave some for my ext blog. What are some of you favorites or not so favorites?



My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
