I was asked not to long ago, why I put so much time into my Active Rain Blog. As it came from a local agent with too much time on her hands, I was not about to waste a reply. It was a comment on my weekly Monday local market report.   This weekend something happened that I did want to share. Many ask if there is still value to being active on Active Rain. I got a call Saturday night from an out of state agent. They had buyers show up at their open house to purchase a home in a resort town. The older couple has a home to sell back in NH though. They were not sure who to list with and the agent they were buying from said she would assist.   She knew the best place to find an agent out of state was by looking in Active Rain. A while back she actually left a comment on a blog i wrote. I th...

July 4th is in the review mirror and everyone's focus is back on the Real Estate market. There is no doubt, that now is the best time to buy with interest rates so low. Those thinking of selling have had the most questions. What is their home worth? Should they sell now? Should they wait until fall?  The answer to home values are that they are not only strong, but rising. When it comes to selling, now is the time. We have buyers waiting for new listings. The election could slow sales later this year. Don't miss the best market since 2005. Let me show you there is a difference from one Realtor to another and your choice of who you hire does make a difference.    It is that time of the week to look at what is the Real Estate Market doing in Manchester NH. Welcome to our WEEKLY Wrap up of ...

It is time for some hard talk if you are looking to buy a home and sellers keep choosing an offer other than yours. I am hearing from multiple buyers who keep getting beat out. The bottom line is two fold. You have to make better offers and get better advice.    It starts with your buyer broker. They are notall created equal. YES, it does matter who you hire.    I went on with my life listing and selling homes for happy clients when i got another call from this seller. His sale was falling apart and he needed help. He remembered something I said, "that the hardest part of real estate is getting the sale to close after accepting an offer."   "What went wrong?" he asked me. I heard him out despite his hanging up on me just 2 weeks prior. He sold his house "way under" what I told him it w...

There has been more than a hand full of unusual requests in these crazy times. I was referred to list a Manchester NH area home. The seller said i came highly recommended. How soon could i be there. I looked up the tax card and old mls and headed over. I pulled up to a nice home. About 15 years old and well manicured lawn. A very diesired area popular due to the great schools. As i toured the home, it did not take long for the seller to start making demands. That he did not really have to sell, therefore he wanted to try the market. He did his own homework, talked to people he knows and said that he wanted to set a price a good 10% over market value. His wife just shook her head.  After seeing the home and asking my usual questions, we sat to go over the home. The first thing was findin...

WHAT is that a picture of you ask? On this older Manchester NH area home, it happens to be part of the electrical system. Built in 1890 this Victorian beauty sits in a desired part of North Manchester. Tree lined neighborhoods. Well kept homes and large yards.   This home was in their family for 70 years.

When a buyer says I have to have this home. Then the seller says I have to sell this home. The clock stops. Meaning.... it does not matter what time it is.   To me... You write the offer.  You present the offer. You listen to the seller. You listen to the buyer. You listen to the other agent. You present a counter offer that works for all.      IN SUMMARY, You do what needs to be done. Time does not matter. You listen. You solve problems. You put clients aniety and fears to rest.   IN THE END: The house is UNDER CONTRACT. The buyer is happy. The seller is happy. As the agent I did what is needed to be done.    I leave you with my infamous thoughts, My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling proc...

I got a call from a very upset lady. She was demanding to know why her house was not selling. Wait a second, i do not have her house listed, why is she calling to yell at me? The answer was her neighbor told her if anyone would know why her house was not selling, it would be me.     It was a nice referral, but perhaps before she made a mistake and listed with another agent? As I listened to the home owner, i pulled the house up on MLS. Right away i knew this home. I tried to show it, but could not get in. As I waited for my turn to speak, i clicked through what pictures were there. They were horrid.   SO on her final plea for answers, I asked her why she mandated her agent to be there for all showings? The seller was puzzled. I let her know that i had a buyer who wanted to see her home...

Let me amaze you as we enter the third week of June. There is so much going on. NH is completely open as of today. The weather is heating up and so is the Manchester NH area Real Estate market.  We are seeing a new trend. That is home owners who are not sure if they should sell now or wait. Some are not sure if there are any buyers. Others are not sure what the value of their house is. I really enjoy speaking to and meeting with many home owners. We have great conversations where i can provide answers to their many questions. The one problem we see is an increasing amount of landlords who can not pay their mortgage as their tenants are not paying them. If you are a landlord and find yourself behind, reach out to us today as we can help. We have buyers ready to buy multy family homes. Ge...

I am seeing a sharp increase in relocation buyers looking to buy a home here in the Manchester NH area. The leading reason is great jobs. Some are being moved by their employer while others are moving here to find work. I am seeing a pattern though in what they are saying.   Take the latest relocation buyer being transferred to NH to work for a leading defense manufacturer here in the area. The company has their own relo people. You as the employee can choose to work with them, or can choose your own agent to work with.    This particular buyer called me Saturday evening. They were angry. They chose the company agent as  they really did not know they had a choice and that there would be a difference. The drove from CA to NH as they did not want to fly. They called their agent to see ho...

Perhaps the top question everyone has, is "how has everything that has gone on affected my home value?" The big surprise to many is that home values in our area are still increasing. The next question is often what their home is worth?  Many do not know I can easily complete a FREE MARKET ANALYSIS for you. Using one of two ways, for those who are not ready for me to come see your home, I can give you an estimate range of what your home is worth today. For a more exact number i can view your home and give you a near exact amount.  The third question is often what is the average sales prices for Manchester?

Here in NH we are a little off the beaten path. Some say protected from the world in some senses. Part of my Real Estate duties i do not talk much about is property management. I do both residential and commercial. So yesterday when news came in of a protest here in Manchester NH, many businesses wanted their fronts boarded up.    Having to go back and board the doors after the employees left, we were tasked with the additional duty of watching over the workers, vehicles and tools. Their was 2 protests in the area, one small and peace full and the other rowdy teenagers. Now no where near the big city groups, numbers or damage. Maybe 40 of them by 930pm as darkness fell.    Not getting into anything political or taking sides, we were there to do a job and leave. kids maybe 12-13 on bike...

Imagine an agent from another company calling and asking you if they priced their new listing right? You do not have to wonder any longer, as it just happened. I did ask why they called me and her reply was that the seller said that I probably have sold the most homes in that area.   The questions were popping up like corn on a hot fire. How did she price the home? The answer was, "well, Zillow of course." I fast forwarded to the thought "why did the seller hire this agent?"   Before I could ponder my next thought, she told me. She is a friend of the seller. Been working real estate for a couple of years part time. By now i pulled up the home in MLS and then kind of figured why i am getting this call.....  The poor seller was my next thought.   IN SUMMARY, I was nice to her and answere...
