Who wouldn't want to rent to own a newer luxury home at more than half off market rents. What a great deal or is it? When the police call to say 3 families are at one of my vacant bank owned listings ready to move in, can i get over there to clear things up. I smelled something wrong. All i had to hear is "we saw an ad on Craigslist for a rent to own home at half price to any family willing to care for the home." How can people not know about this rental scam that as been around for way over 5 years? Who would rent a home without seeing the inside? and... who would wire money overseas without seeing said home or without signing a lease?   THE TOP 10 WAYS TO SPOT A SCAM1. They are asking you to rent a home without letting you see inside. 2. They ask you to wire money.3. The rental price ...

What is your guess? The answer in this story is 3. You see there was a vacant home that just expired with it's second listing agent in 9 months. I was called for interview to list it. I arrived to a dark home. was welcomed by the owner who had moved out of state last spring who came back for the first time since to see why it has not sold. As i walked through this Manchester NH area home, most light bulbs were burnt out or missing. A spider web swayed down from the chandelier. Upstairs the slider was open and it is December.   It was apparent why this home had not sold, after 4pm, no one can see because it is too dark. It is dirty and there are 4 feet of leaves against the patio door leading out to the back yard. The seller began to cry. It has been 9 months since he left his home being...

Recently there has been an increase in inquiries on homes that are listed in the MLS as Pending. Many Home Buyers did not know what pending meant. It could be because there is a shortage of homes for sale in and around the Manchester NH area, and they are looking for more homes to see.   In NH we two statuses you can change a home to when a contract has been accepted by the seller. That is Contingent where the home can still be seen by buyers. Most often it is used if the sale is contingent upon a home for sale which needs to be sold before they can purchase this one. Other listing agents will change it to "contingent" if there is a contingency such as a home inspection or mortgage is needed. More often most listing agents will place those types of sales under pending if a pre approval ...

Is it mandatory that an agent places a For Sale sign on the front lawn? This question was asked by a Manchester NH area Home Seller who said every agent they interviewed said it was a must, but they did not want a sign no way, no how. They gave a couple reasons they wanted kept private and I was ok with that, I can accept their listing and skip the sign in the front lawn. From the smiles on their face, it looked like i gave them a new puppy.  The leading reason to have a sign is more exposure for the home. Letting neighbors and passer by's know it is for sale and drum up interest. But without one, it is not the end of the world. For me it was more important to make the home owner happy. My marketing and advertising program will reach out to all the potential buyers who may want to purch...

How do you know if  Home Buyer can get a mortgage or not? Why are Buyers given a pre-approval if they were not actually approved for a loan? The CONFUSION starts that they actually got a "PRE-QUALIFICATION" Letter and not a pre-approval. Many buyers and sellers are confused by the two terms. This sellers sale fell through because the Buyer could not get a mortgage and had a generic pre-qual letter from an internet mortgage company that wasn't worth the paper it was printed on.   A pre-Qualification usually only looks at the buyers credit score and uses what the buyer states their income and debts are. It is contingent upon a formal application and verifications. A GOOD listing agent not just requires a pre-qual letter, but will check to make sure it is real and to what depth they verifi...

Is there such thing as an EASY sale? Some days it is easier to find a Buyer than it is to get a home to close these days. As we approach Thanksgiving in the Manchester NH area you will be Thankful if you do not get a call with the following issues before your Real Estate transaction closes. Some items may be funny but do happen. THE TOP 5 REASONS YOUR SALE MAY NOT BE CLOSING:1. The Buyers Earnest Money Deposit check bounced.2. The Appraisal came back $20,000 lower than the sales price.3. Your mortgage company just lost your file "again".4. The buyer just bought a new "expensive" car or boat.5. The buyer just quit their job. Every Buyer and Seller should know that items such this, some times worse and some times not as worse do happen. The key is to have a Buyer agent who went over the b...

Should a Home Seller agree to pay 50% of a Home Buyers closing costs? My answer may shock some. Absolutely no way should a seller agree to oay "a percentage" of price or closing costs. The warning I have is "it will depend how it is written in the offer". First it is perfectly acceptable and even encouraged for sellers to pay a buyers closing costs. It attracts more buyers and when done right, is built into the price not costing the seller anything. The HOWEVER part is it depends how it is worded. You see if it states (Seller to pay 50% of closing costs, there is not way to protect your seller with a specific amount. The buyer can pay higher points to get a lower rate or even pay all of their pre-paids and the seller is on the hook for half.  HOW DO YOU DO IT RIGHT? you ask. Well the pu...

WHY would any Home Seller or Listing Agent in their right mind sell a home through an ONLINE AUCTION, that is what i was just asked. Perhaps because yesterday I wrote about my new listing that is being sold by an online auction. I got quite a few comment, emails and even messages asking how it worked and if  i as crazy? You see it was not my choice to sell a new Bank Owned Listing through Online auction, it was the sellers. And it went something like take the listing being sold in this auction or else. The listing is reward for completing 1 million BPO's. we maybe just under that but it feels like a million.  Lets start with what an online auction is. A home is sold through a bidding process. Usually for 3 days bids are taken. The buyer registers online. Has to read and acknowledge the ...

The Seller said they wanted to do a "FAVOR" for the Buyer and leave them some paint. What is the problem you ask? Well not really sure the buyer wants a can of paint from 1985? Not to mention there was not just 1 but over 2 dozen cans of assorted paint, some dry as a bone and others leaking like a sieve. Throw in a couple of cans of old oil and it is a winner. I just wasn't sure for who? The problem here in our area is you can not just throw out paint. It is considered hazardous waste. Which is why most sellers want  to leave it. Most buyers find this out the hard way. Not my buyers though... We conducted a walk through and pointed out to the listing agent that the contract states that nothing be left behind. The morning before closing we did a second walk through and it was still there...

You may see or read the term BROOM CLEAN in a purchase and sales contract. During a walk through Saturday for a closing next week, the listing agent called to say the seller was out, so the buyer wanted to walk through the home. The seller was out, but some furniture and belongings were not. After a call to the listing agent, their response was "the home was broom clean as per the contract." I let them know sweeping around the furniture they left, was not broom clean. I List and Sell a lot of Manchester NH area homes, and broom clean has always been free and clear of all personal belongings and or trash. The good thing for my buyer, was that i used that exact wording in the additional provision page. SO yes it states broom clean, but also States free of all personal belongings and or tr...
