Before anyone sees the inside of your home thay already have formed an impression based on the outside. "Curb Appeal" is what the potential Buyer sees your home as they pull up in the car. Simple things are where you start - put away the trash cans; get rid of cars in the driveway (especially if they are not registered to drive anymore); trim the bushes and trees aways from walkways and windows; and finally put away the plastic children's toys. Don't let your agent take a picture of your home with cars in the driveway and trash cans on the street. That is the major picture that everyone on the internet will be seeing. You only get one chance with impressions from the curb whether it be in the car or on the computer. Many agents send their Buyers out to do drive-bys. This is when they de...

Since I live in the lovely town of Stratham, NH, I thought it was about time I blogged about it!  Stratham is located in the heart of the Seacoast of New Hampshire.  It encompasses 15 square miles and is situated within easy access to major commuting routes (101, 33 and 95) which will take you to Boston, MA, Manchester, NH or Portland, ME.  Stratham is also about a 15 minute drive, depending on where you are, to the port of Portsmouth. To give you a bit of history, Stratham was settled in 1631 by Captain Thomas Wiggin, who became the first governor of New Hampshire.  Stratham was the sixth town to be incorporated into the state in 1716. The Stratham area, originally called Winnicutt by the Pennacook Indians, and was also known as Squamscott Patent or Point of Rocks because of its locati...
