Are Foreclosures a Huge Scam?

August 30, 2010

A 4,400+ sqft home under $300k? Are foreclosures the best opportunity to get a deal? A lot of the NH bank owned properties are in sad shape, but recently  there has been a new crop of 3,000-4,000+ sqft homes for sale in Southern New Hampshire that are in foreclosure. These homes are competing with the resale market and dragging prices down. How can a seller compete with these bargains? Only by taking advantage of the fact that their house is lived in and (hopefully) well cared for. Staging has turned from an obscure  art to a must have to compete in this real estate market.

Bank-owned Homes around Pelham New Hampshire

August 12, 2010

Pelham NH appears to have been spared of the latest wave of foreclosures that is affecting the higher end homes in the surrounding towns. While there is 57 beautiful bankowned homes in Southern NH, buyers who have been targeting Pelham will have to be satisfied with a real estate bargain in a neighboring town.

And bargains they are! These are not your broken-down fixer-uppers, small neglected homes. They are 2,000-3,000 sqft houses with all amenities, in-ground pools, granite countertops. One of them sports an IN-DOOR pool and another offers 5 bedrooms and over 4,300 sqft living area.

Add super-low sub 4% interest rates and these Southern NH real estate deals look irresistable.

Price reductions Pelham NH

May 1, 2009

21 single family homes for sale in Pelham New Hampshire had a price reduction in April, representing 24% of the 86 active MLS listings of residential properties in Pelham NH.

The record holder is a $65,000 price drop from the original list price of $544,900 to $479,900. More typical price adjustments ranged from $5,000 to $20,000 amounting to 2-4% of the listing price.

In a better year April would be the month of new listings appearing on the market, but because of the length of time to sell a house these days, many home owners in Pelham NH decided to attract the buyers attention by putting the house up for sale earlier and now reducing the price. It is a good strategy in the very short New Hampshire selling season limited to the months between the end of the long winter and the beginning of the new school year; only five months from April to September.

Relative to the original list price of $234,900 one home’s price is down to $142,200 a nearly $93,000 difference that amounts  to a 40% price reduction. The property has shared frontage on Little Island Pond in Pelham.

Based on information of MLS listings in NNEREN, the Northern New England Real Estate Network, Inc. for the period through April 30th, 2009 these are the properties for sale in Pelham New Hampshire that incurred a price adjustment:
