Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Jan. 30, 2023. As January comes to a close, the amount of Single Family home new listings doubled last week. The amount of Pending Sales increased greatly for both single family and condos. The amount of new condo listings though, fell greatly.  THIS WEEKS QUESTION asks "Is there more Pending Sales falling apart or does it just seem that way?" Let me check MY CRYSTAL BALL and see what it says. YES, you are seeing a greater percentage of homes that went "Under Contract" come back on the market. Inspection issues, Appraisal Issues, Buyers not getting approved or Buyers with Cold Feet, are the main reasons.There is a way though to reduce your odds that your sale will also fall through. Pricing your home correctly from the start. As your listing agent...

Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Jan. 16, 2023. Well, January has felt more like spring than winter here in NH. That has people thinking more about Buying or Selling a home than skiing or Ice Skating. Prices are down a little. Interest rates are down a little and the total amount of homes for sale are also down. Our Sales though, are up. The biggest swing is the amount of multi family homes for sale is way down, although potential buyers looking to buy one, is way up. That makes now a great time to list and sell with us. The next question is "WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN REAL ESTATE FOR 2023? Let me check MY CRYSTAL BALL and see what it says for 2023. Look for Interest rates to hold steady or even come down a little with the slow down in new mortgage starts for the first quarter. Look f...

Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Jan. 9, 2023. Happy New Year to our our faithful readers. The question most asked the last couple of days does "New Year" mean "a New Market?" The simple answer is no, the market has already changed. We saw 4-5 times more listings hit the market in fall. We saw prices level off as interest rates went up. Then Thanksgiving came and we saw a sharp decline in listings once again. We are still a market in transformation. The next question is "WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN REAL ESTATE FOR 2023?

Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Dec. 26, 2022. Everywhere i go people want to know how the Real Estate Market is. Are any homes selling? Is anyone even buying homes? Are we facing a crash? Lets start with saying, Yes, homes are selling. Yes, People are Buying and No, there is no crash on the horizon. In 2008 seemingly overnight the banks stopped approving mortgages. No one could buy without cash and the market crashed. Today, banks are strong. Banks are approving mortgages. There is a variety of different mortgage choices for someone looking to buy a home. Prices have come down in a lot of areas which off set the rise in interest rates  The amount of  single family homes coming on the market has decreased once again last week. Typically the weeks from the week before Christmas t...

I thank you all for the support and inspiration in 2022 and look forward to a happy and healthy 2023.  Here in the Manchester NH area Real Estate Market. Many ask why all my blogs have a common theme. I think it is important to share my Real Estate stories whether good or bad so future Buyers and Sellers can learn and have a GREAT Home buying or Selling Experience. The common lesson is that as a Buyer OR Seller in this market you need every advantage you can to get your home sold. It starts with choosing the right agent. My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or ...

It is that time of year again, Let me share with you one of my timeless and infamous blogs. It was the Night before Christmas and all I could see, is a Manchester NH Home Seller kneeling by his tree. The Seller looked up, at the stars so bright, they wished for Santa to bring them a Listing agent, that would try... with all their might.  They had it for sale before, without even a bite. No one came and and no one could see, this beautiful house with this magnificent tree. Stockings were hung on the fireplace so nice, a completely redone inside and all, at such a good price.  A new kitchen, a new roof, but did it matter? Would they ever hear the clatter... of buyers walking through their home? I think not as they sit here reading this poem? They stared out the window at the newly fallen ...

Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Dec. 19, 2022. The amount of  single family homes coming on the market has decreased once again last week leaving some of the lowest inventories of the year. Meanwhile the Amount of new Condo listing tripled last week. The amount of buyers remained strong for this time of year.  WE ARE SEEING ON BIG CHANGE IN THE MARKET THAT NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT - That would be HOME INSPECTIONS. A short 2 months ago they were unheard of as there was far many more buyers than sellers. Buyers waived them to even have a chance to get their offers accepted. With the slow down, buyers are not only having home inspections, but asking for everything to be fixed including the kitchen sink in some cases. HOWEVER, the response from sellers is not always what the Buyer ex...

Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Dec. 12, 2022. The amount of  single family homes coming on the market decreased very slightly here in the Manchester NH area. The amount of  condos on the market is down by half this week.  Some changes we are seeing in the Manchester market are the average sales price is down and the average days on market is up from 8 to 13.  When it comes to Multi family home, most seem to be holding there value although the days on market has risen from 15 to 22.

You should know that not all agents are created the same. E...

Manchester NH Real Estate Market REPORT Dec. 5, 2022. The amount of both single family homes and condos coming on the market doubled last week here in the Manchester NH area. Interest rates trended down slightly. We had one of our busiest weekends for real estate since the administration started raising rates. Prices have come down and buyers are buying.You as a consumer have a choice and before rushing into hiring just anyone. You should know that not all agents are created the same. Experience matters more than ever as the market changes. Knowing what to expect next. Knowing how to approach these changes. Knowing how to better guide you as a buyer or seller through these changes matters and comes with experience. Hiring an experienced agent like me who can navigate the market changes ...

The Local Real Estate Market shocked us once again as the amount of new single family homes coming on the market dropped nearly 300%. Interest rates nudged downward with the brightest stat being the amount of homes going under contract increased this week over last week. Looking at how many homes are for sale, the number dropped 27% to only 44 single family homes for sale right now in Manchester NH   Today we want to talk about asking prices. Many homes that have been on the market a while have dropped in price. Looking at new listings we are seeing 3 trends. Those who price the home at actual market price. Then there are those over pricing their home from the start. On the flip side we are seeing people under pricing their home, not really knowing what their home was worth in today's ...

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Godzyk Real Estate Services to all of you. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to work in a field which I love.

As we approach Thanksgiving, we first would like to thank all our faith full readers who look forward to our weekly updates each Monday. We are happy to report that Interest rates actually came down last week. The amount of new single family home listings coming on the market doubled last week. The amount of new condo listings fell last week. The amount of homes placed under contract fell last week.   I wanted to comment on something i am seeing. I make it a point to read as many articles about real estate as i can find. To my dismay, so many are wrong. Different people, different companies and even different media like to label what is happening in Real Estate. The market is not changing, it has already changed. While similar it is also different than anything we have seen before. Med...
