The Real Deal on Finding a Great Windham NH Realtor

  • By

When you find yourself poised to sell your home, there’s no more important initial step than seeking out a great Windham NH Realtor® to round out your team. Without even thinking about it, everyone automatically knows that they want a real estate professional with the technical experience, communication skills, and local knowledge that such serious business requires. It also won’t hurt if your Realtor has bottomless reserves of energy and a positive attitude to match—as well as the sympathetic human traits that makes them a pleasure to work with.

There are lots of conventional channels that make it easy to identify perfectly well-qualified Windham Realtors (and we are lucky to have many talented ones here in the area)—but when you’re looking for the one who will sync with you and your ultimate goals, that level of rapport will most likely take an extra proactive step or two to secure.

Positive word-of-mouth is a good way to start, but it’s realistic to remember that the one making the referral may or may not share your priorities in a working relationship. You will be working together for a while, and depending upon each other to make some significant decisions—some of which could be made under pressure. When the team has good chemistry going for it, those decisions will come easier. A few ideas that people have found helpful in finding the right Realtor:

Check out the REALTOR’S Web-site

When you looking on a REALTOR’S web-site, check out the past performance pages, the reviews of past clients, and the focusof the message that the web-site conveys Even though a REALTOR will be presenting themselves in the best light, there are many indications of how the REALTOR will interact during the transaction with you.

Check out a Realtor’s Open House

This is a good way to see a Realtor at work. Whether you are buying a Windham home or selling your own, dropping in unexpectedly will allow you to listen to what they say and how they interact with prospects. Don’t hesitate to be upfront about your own situation: a great Realtor will be able to help other potential buyers and deal with you without missing a beat!

Use Social Media

You can also start conversations with prospective Realtors on social media to gauge how long it takes them to respond, whether or not they can give you detailed answers, and to see how they engage with other members of the public. This is a good way to tell if they use social media skillfully, building their brand while clearly valuing the people who interact with them.

Consult with Other Professionals

The opinions of contractors, mortgage brokers and repair people can be valuable, too. Professional people have an insider’s view of the Windham Realtors who work hard to get the job done efficiently.

 Pick up the Phone and Call

Just pick up the phone and call to introduce yourself and to begin the process. Let the agent know you’re just beginning your search for a Windham real estate agent. This will allow you to see how quickly they return calls and how the interact with you during your conversation. Most agents know that you will be interviewing other agents and will be glad to speak with you.

Of course, fine-tuning your choice should include doing the conventional legwork, too. Look at the Realtor’s listings, their track records, their accolades, where they live and their experience. If you have a house to sell in Windham, it really is best that the agent consistently sells homes in Windham. The rest is up to you. Needless to say, I hope I make it to your final cut!

After Easter, Windham NH Spring Real Estate Season Blossoms

When the first spring day comes along (as opposed to the first day of spring), a goodly proportion of Windham’s residents feel the annual pull toward the garden store aisles. Even those who’ve stoutly resisted ordering seeds, gardening tools, or any of the other back yard paraphernalia the catalogs kept hawking all winter can succumb to this particular Call of Nature.

Burpee, Scotts and Miracle-Gro shareholders can relax: spring has sprung.

The Windham spring real estate selling season starts stirring, too, pretty much in lockstep with the appearance of the tulips. Whether or not the tulips have succeeded in poking up out of the ground, it’s a cinch that by this time they will have made colorful appearances on store shelves everywhere, just like the Peeps and chocolate bunnies. Unlike the rest of the early spring’s trappings, though, the spring real estate phenomenon doesn’t disappear from sight once Easter Sunday is a memory. In fact, it picks up steam.

There are any number of explanations why spring real estate in Windham is always expected to ramp up. Part of the reason is the calendar. For families with children, if a move is going to involve a change in school districts, summer vacation is the least disruptive time of year for it to happen, so spring is the time to start house hunting. Part of the reason is due to the comparative difficulty of selling a home in wintertime: not only can foul weather make it harder to keep a home at its showy best, it also can throw a monkey wrench into property maintenance and the few cosmetic fixes that almost every home could use before it hits the Windham listings. The result is a certain amount of bottled-up inventory that bursts onto the scene all at once—and springtime is the single time of the year when that happens.

This is especially true in Windham this year. The winter of 2015 was horrendous and put a crimp on market activity in town. Pending Sales of homes and condominiums was down 29% during the first 3 months of the year. So this year, there is both a pent up demand for buyers who weren’t about to go out looking in four feet of snow and of listings caused by sellers reluctance to list in such awful weather. Since April 1st there has been a frenzy on my listings.

Then there is the automatic momentum effect. When you sell a Windham home, most families need to turn around and buy the next. The National Association of Realtors® tells us that the spring real estate selling season may actually be stronger than the numbers indicate, because many sales that really did begin “in season” don’t actually close until summer begins. Spring real estate as a phenomenon is “real” enough that you can’t blame them for lines like “Spring brings rain and flowers—and possibly extra green in the final sales price of your home.”

The spring real estate selling season is indeed underway, so if you are planning on listing your own Windham home anytime soon, now is a great time to give me a call. It’s the best way to take advantage of the traditional boom in prospective buyers!
