I list and sell all types of homes. From luxury homes, starter homes, retirement homes, vacation homes, investment homes, new homes and homes needing lots of work. There are some magic words you may see when looking for a Manchester New Hampshire area Home. Those are "CASH ONLY."     The most popular questions is often what "cash only" actually means. Followed up by "WHY?"   There are two common reasons a home i listed as "cash only." That would be the home needs so much work, you can not get a mortgage. The most common reason is when the home goes under contract, the seller wants to make sure it 100% will close. That it wont come back on the market due to an inspection, appraisal or the buyers mortgage company rejects the loan.   Recently I listed a couple of homes for a local investor...

As I go on many Listing appointments, I am seeing a trend in home sales. Winter will soon come to an end here in NH. That means many Manchester New Hampshire area Home Sellers are thinking about getting their homes on the market.     Sellers have many choices. But what is the right choice? As I meet many would be sellers, I am often one of 2 or 3 agents interviewed. The latest trend that sellers are telling me seem to be from two different groups.   The first group is focusing on how much they can list the home for. The higher the better. We are talking $20,000, $30,000 and even $50,000 over what the market value should be. They do not mention how long it may take  to sell at this price. They do not mention over priced homes are not selling even in this market.   The second group seems...

Sell my house in one day or you are fired. That is what a recent home seller said to me. Lets go back and see what happened prior to the call from this Manchester New Hampshire area Home Seller.   This Seller sought out the biggest agency. He wanted a team. The more the better. He told them what price he wanted. He wanted an open house and wanted multiple offers.   What could go wrong in this market? Don't homes sell themselves?   The listing hit the market. They held back showings until the open house on the next Saturday. The house on a busy main street of a suburban town. They had a flood of people. Lines out the door. Sunday came and went and they had a spattering of offers. All well below asking price. How could this happen? The seller fired the agents and refused all the offers. ...

Last week we saw the the largest increase in new listings hitting the market in the Manchester NH Real Estate Market so far this year. "We saw some of the coldest weather this winter.

The simple answer is NOW could be the best time ever to list your home with us. Home values could be at their highest levels, and with a shortage of homes for sale, there is a great deal of buyers waiting to buy, DOES IT MATTER WHICH REALTOR I USE?

You may first be asking what is a DE - Escalation Clause? I was not even sure this was a thing until this cash buyer called. He asked for my assistance in buying a home. We met and he he told me if he hired me, we had to use "his plan" to  purchase a Manchester New Hampshire area home.   His plan was to offer more than the asking price. A cash offer with no contingencies. The kicker is that the seller has 1 hour to accept.    If the seller did not accept in an hour, his offer reduces by the $40,000 he added to the asking price.    If the seller does not accept in 2 hours. He wants to withdraw his offer and make one on another property. He said he is sick of the games.  Sick of delays and sick of waiting 7 days for sellers to answer offers.    As i pondered his request, he told me he ha...

Who makes the decision to hold back showings? Meaning placing the home for sale in MLS but not allowing showings until next Saturday?  Here in New Hampshire, a trend that has developed is for the big companies to not allow showings for a week or sometimes 2 weeks after the home is listed. They state showings begin at their first open house such as noon to 2pm on Saturday.     Who does this help the most? Does it help sellers? No, it could delay the home going under contract. Does it help the buyers? No, it punishes buyers who would act quick, see it the first day and make their best offer up front. Does it help the agent build up a potential client list? Yes   The latest trend though means that 10- 20 potential buyers are lined up on a cold NH winter day waiting to get into a home. Add...

A picture is worth a million words. You do not have to look further than this wall as a picture was removed. Life long smokers are ready for a change. They need to sell their home and they are looking for a newer home all on one level. Perhaps even one in an over 55 community.  But where to start?   Their first step was to find out what their home was worth in today's market. Their daughter had them call me. I did a great job selling her home.   It was a grand home in a desired area of similar homes. When they opened the door. There it was, the smell. The daughter did not waste any time asking if it will affect the value? There was no doubt the smoke would affect the value of this home.   After walking through the home, I went over the value. First, what the home is worth AS IS with th...

The phone rings and there is a person on the line who is distraught. They eventually slowed down so i could make out what they were saying. They were distraught over the sale of their Manchester NH area Home.  Were they listed with me? No. Ok, good. So, I then had to get to the bottom of this call. After listening to the seller I was in shock. They cried that Selling their house should not be this hard.  Just then someone else gets on the phone. I know that voice. It is a local school teacher, i just sold her home and sold her a new one. Now her parents need help. Without telling his daughter, the father wanted to list with the biggest company he saw on TV. He called in, they sent a young agent and he soon had his house listed.  Until today, he had not heard anything from the agent. Peo...
