What may be funny to rural New Hampshire Home Sellers, really had the buyer holding their nose asking, "what is that smell?"The buyers were a big city. They are retiring and wants lot of land. They chose a couple of rural NH towns to look in.
SO what was the smell? The neighbors have a small farm, horses, cows and i saw some goats. The wind was blowing in the right direction to bring the odor our way. The buyer loved the home, but that smell, was it a deal breaker?
We were there quite a while. The current sellers had come home and we all sat talking about the smell. The unfortunate part was it over shadowed how nice the home was. The buyer could not take it and was ready to both leave and rule it out.
The chore now is finding a rural home where there are no smells, no farms and no animals. It was good this happened on the first showing so we could have a reality check with the buyer. There are lots of different towns, different rural settings and knowing what they like and what they do not is a great start to finding their dream home.
We re-grouped. Before going into any more homes, driving by them was a must. Also driving by the neighbors. There are areas known for farms and those known for wooded settings. Most likely a wooded setting is what they sought. The next question was how rural was too rural for them. We can go outside the City of Manchester and be rural in less than 20-30 minutes. In an hour we can be in no mans land. They did not want no mans land.
After a day of driving we so a couple of potential homes. We had to go back by the one they liked the most. I called and they said we could get in. Only 25 minutes from the city, it had it all. A newer home on a very large parcel of land. Set off the road. You could not see neighbors and no farms in site. They loved it and made an offer on the spot. They appreciate the time i took with them as their honesty spilled out that 2 other agents refused to hep them before they found me.
Perhaps the MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that 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.
