This is a loaded question from a Manchester NH area Home Owner looking to sell their home. They had their home listed for 6 months and it did not sell. My first question is why. The answer was easy, that it was very difficult for buyers to see the home. The home owner restricted showings. Now mornings, no nights and no weekends. Buyers need to see the home when they are off.  The bottom line is NO showings means NO sale.  Get yourself ready to sell your home. First is emotions, selling a home is a business. Don't let emotion cloud your judgment. Don't be offended when someone asks a question or wants to see your home. Every ad we place is so buyers will ask to see your home.  Alright... It is time to show the home. Make the home available. Restricting showings means you can be turning a...

Be careful what you ask because you may get a real answer.  Why be careful? Because the seller may not want to hear the real answer. This particular seller has had 21 showings in a month, but no offers. You as the reader may ask, "what did the listing agent say?" The listing agent let them know the home was over priced on this Manchester NH area home. As you could also guess, it is not the answer the seller wanted. It is their home and despite the work needed on the home, it was worth every penny. The seller went on to invite every Realtor that would go, to their home where they asked them the same question. Despite being listed, many agents actually went. Some based the listing agent. Some said the house was worth every penny. Some even said they had buyers who would love this home.  T...

In the same breathe as a Home Seller asked why their house was not selling, they said they would be taking the weekend off from selling their home. There would be no showings on their Manchester NH area home For Sale. No, I was not shocked as I did not have the home listed. But the sellers brother was shocked. It was a Friday shake up firing the agent and giving some reality to his brother.   The bottom line is there is no days off when selling your home, especially a busy summer weekend where we see a boost in showings come the weekend. Lucky for them I sold that brothers home and he knows I can sell his brothers home. \  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 th...

Love it OR hate it, Social media is here to stay. Let me tell you a story how social media is HURTING some real estate sales. Lets take a situation here in the Manchester NH area. A Home seller emailed they wanted out of their contract. Their friend sold their home in 1 day and theirs has been for sale for a month. There are two parts to the story so lets look at both the friends house and why their home is not selling. First their home. Simply put it is over priced given the location and condition. Second there has been 21 showings. So the marketing is reaching potential buyers, why are they not making offers? Not to get personal, but the reasons were passed onto the seller who has not solved those issues. NEXT, lets check out the friends home. I actually saw this listing and know it w...

At first thought many could think they are asking if you are scary? But what is a BOO agent? Yes, the caller really asked that. The story starts on  this hot summer day here in the Manchester NH area. The caller then identifies herself as a home owner who is behind in her mortgage, She asked the bank about her options. The bank sent her a copy of a BPO. That is a Broker Price Opinion The credit department listed a list of option including contacting the BOO agent to see about selling her home using a short sale. It was nice that they mentioned me even though they think I am a ghost. I would imagine your first question is why am I doing BPO's in a thriving market? The answer is three fold. First they pay very well when you do them right. (and choose the right people to do them for). Seco...

WHAT IS THE MARKET LIKE?  SHOULD I BUY OR SELL A HOME THIS SUMMER 2018? Lets look back and review the Real Estate market in the Manchester NH area THIS SUMMER. 2018 has been a wonderful year for Real Estate. Over all a very busy market that sees new listings coming on the market.  HOME SELLERS who listed with us enjoyed relatively quick sales and at great prices when they list with us. HOME BUYERS who bought through us enjoyed getting ultra low interest rates. They got an insight of what new listing were hitting the market and used our tips to have their offers accepted and closed on their dream homes.  Interest rates bumped a little the start of August which has seen a rush of buyers who were waiting, to act now. WHAT DO WE SEE FOR THE END 2018? During the last week, the Fed raised rat...

What is a Home Seller to do when it is time to clean the house so it can be listed For Sale? This Manchester NH area Home Owner took everything and threw it in the basement. Large furniture, clutter, old clothes and anything else in the way. They then had a bunch of agents come interview last fall to list the home.  Despite what I thought was a great listing appointment, I did not get the listing. Apparently because I told them the "hard truth", I was told by the wife. The husband was offended that I told them that the basement also needed to be cleaned. They listed with an agent who said the home was "perfect just like it was" to list and show. They also inflated it's value quite a bit. The last 6 months it was listed. Here we are 6 months later and it has gone unsold. I saw it on the ...

Give her credit for asking, but I picked up on the word "Friends". It was her day to host the neighborhood kids on vacation week and there was a new listing she wanted to see. Of course we went to see the home. Of course the seller was home when we got there. Of course there was 3 other boys with her and her son.    This house had a play room full of toys and the boys did not miss a beat to jump in and start taking them out. I looked left, right, up and down. Mrs. Buyer was off and running to see the home. As luck would have it. Mrs. Seller whistles to stop the mayhem. As i readied her to throw us all out, she announces all the boys to the table for some fresh chocolate chip cookies.    I caught up with Mrs. Buyer. She loved the home. She was in tears, embarrassed for the kids, happy t...

Tell me you have seen it all now. I was asked to complete some Open Houses on a Brand New home. It is just a lot now, no model home yet. No construction trailer and no camper. SO while standing at this Manchester NH Lot, I wondered how best to accommodate their request. Sitting in my car is restrictive. Sitting in a chair on a March weekend after a blizzard would lead me to be a Popsicle.    One of the equipment operators in jest suggested this All weather pop up sports tent. He has one for his daughters Soccer and softball games. I looked it up and perhaps this may work. Alone with a table with paper weights for my literature. If it is busy, i may never sit it what I am hoping. The builder asked me to update him with ideas. I did and he loved my creativity.   What say you?     The MOST...

SHOULD YOU BUY OR SELL A HOME IN 2018? Lets look back and review the Real Estate market in the HOOKSETT NH area. 2017 was a wonderful year for Real Estate.

Have you ever heard the commercial "Where's the beef?" Well this blog could be titled "WHERE IS THE POOL?" Welcome to week 5 of my new weekly feature of "Pools that make you say *WOW* ".  This weeks pool comes from a bank owned home. Reading the recently completed appraisal, the appraiser gave extra value for a pool. His price was way more than market value of the home with no deductions for the repairs needed. My response was "Where is the Pool" followed by this picture of a deck and over grown area where the pool was, before the alleged metal thieves stole the above ground pool.  Did the appraiser ever really step foot on this property or use the old appraisal to complete the new appraisal? You tell me...    And there you have it, week 5 in the books. I can not wait for week 6. How ab...

Something caught my buyers eye in an ad. Professionally Landscaped and "A fire pit to die for". Looking for a home in one of the surrounding towns or Manchester NH, they wanted a big lot, trees and Mr. Buyer liked the idea of a fire pit.  We arrived at the home. The wife was drawn to the kitchen, the bathroom and up to the bedroom. Mr. Buyer headed for the 3 Car garage, the basement and out to the back yard. We stood on the deck and looked outward. But that is what we saw.     Professionally landscaped was no where to be scene, a yard, with many bare spots is what we got. As we walked to the rear to see the fire pit, we saw a circle of rocks with burnt pallets and half burned cans. We sat pondering this mess as Mrs. Buyer walked out with her mother. The inside of the home was not much b...

Not a week goes by when a consumer calls on a home they saw online that has already sold or is under contract. However, today, a buyer agent called and argued how they saw my new listing was still available and demanded to see it. I assured them it was under contract and actually already schedule to close, we were no longer showing this property. "Then why would it still be online?" they asked over and over. As i shook my head more and more, I pondered how they did not know that many of these online sites are not updated in real time like the MLS. I also wondered why they were searching for homes on these sites and not using the MLS. Finally I had enough and asked what company she was with. It was both shocking and not shocking she named off a big franchise. Why are they not training th...
