Is it time to move south

Winter is comingIs it time to move south

It’s getting closer and closer to that time of year again, winter. Are you prepared for winter or do you think it is time to move south ?

If you are thinking of moving south Monika and I can help you reach your goal. Monika and I have been in the real estate business collectively for 60 years. That’s a lot of experience to get your house on the market, sold and help you move to a warmer climate.

Marketing your home for sale

Once you contact us we can make an appointment with you to come over and give you an opinion of value to determine your homes value. We will prepare a comprehensive marketing plan to position your home in today’s market to maximize your dollar value.

We compare your homes value to similar homes that are currently for sale and homes that are currently pending sale and to reach the true value we compare your home to homes recently sold. Homes that have recently sold really tell the true picture of what your home will sell for in this market.

Helpful hints to prepare your home

Here are a few helpful hints to get your home ready for winter. Make sure your furnace is cleaned if you heat with oil. An oil fired furnace should be cleaned every year. If it’s a gas furnace you should clean at least every three years. Make sure your fireplace and heating chimney are cleaned. Do you have gutters? Make sure they are cleaned as well. You’ll be surprised at all the debris that gets stuck in the gutters especially sticks and leaves.

Do you have the older style storm windows on your house? Take a walk around the house to make sure sure there are no air leaks around the frame.

One thing that people don’t realize is if you have screens on your windows take them out or push them all the way up. Why you ask? With the screens up it actually allows the sun to warm up your house by allowing the sun’s warmth to fill your house with passive solar heat.

Make sure your shovels are in good condition and you can find them. Tune up your snow blower and make sure your plow is ready to hookup if needed.

Now that you have your home ready for winter and you finally decide to move south we can find an agent for you that will help you find your new home. Just give us a call, text or email us.

It may be pretty but nothings makes me ask…  is it time to move south more than some cold snowy days

2014 Trick or Treat Times

2014 Trick or Treat Times2014 Trick or Treat Times in New Hampshire

It’s that time of year again when parents dress their children up in ghoulish costumes and parade them around the neighborhoods to ask for tricks or treats. Some of the costumes the children appear in are quite clever. So, below is the trick or treat times in New Hampshire.

A link to all the times for trick or treat in your town provided by WMUR .com

Remember to have fun and be safe. Happy Halloween!

I remember as a kid we used to have the really big candy bars and we would walk from neighborhood to neighborhood filling up pillow cases full of candy. Those were the fun times. We even got money back then too. A quarter was a lot of money for us back in the 60’s. That’s when Halloween was sort of safe. There was always a story or two about weirdos but you knew to stay away from their house.

My favorite candy bars were Three Musketeers, Snickers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. What were your favorite candy bars? Leave a comment to let us know.

We live on a main road so we don’t see any trick or treaters anymore. we used to get a bunch before the subdivisions were built behind our house. I can’t blame the parents for not taking their children on our road. It can be dangerous as cars do drive faster than they should at times.

Hampstead NH Real Estate When Should I list my Hampstead NH home for sale

We get asked this question often, especially in late winter/early pre-spring market and the answer is always the same. The best time is when inventory is down, when you don’t have a ton of competition.  That means in February when before everyone else puts their home on the market.  Knowing what the Hampstead NH Real Estate market is doing is very important when making that decision. The info below comes from TrendGraphix and pretty well tells the story! Ready to sell your Hampstead NH home, give us a call at 603-944-9172 we’d love to put a sold sign in front of your home.
