I treat my Turlia leads the same way I treat any other online request. I thank them for the inquiry. Ask a few general questions, then go from there. I have had very good success.

The summer is our peak season here int he Mt. Washington Valley. It just makes sense to offer homes for sale during the busiest season. What you may call a "ski condo" is certain to be a popular summer destination as well. The busiest season for rentals here in Bartlett NH is the 12 week summer period. I often find that "ski season" people don't realize that the summer is our highest sales season overall. This is why it is very important for anyone looking to buy or sell in a resort area to work with a local agent that has many years of experience and a proven track record of over 20 sales a year to help them understand the local market. Anyone that is not that busy may be a part-time agent or just a little too desperate to make a sale. Trust your gut instinct and ask for proof from the mls to show transaction history and experience. ... more

Hi,

I guess the first question is: What is the price range that defines "too expensive"? There are some condos in the under $150K range that have pools and the condo fees are under $200/month. Once you add in a pool condo fees will usually jump over the $100/month mark due tot he ongoing maintenance and insurance costs. However, there are even 1 bedroom condos in Bartlett for around $99K with pool access.
Another consideration I can't determine from your question is whether or not this would be for vacation purposes or year round use. If this is a vacation condo then the next question is whether or not you would want to make the unit available for rentals. Once you open a unit up for rentals the whole scenario changes. For example, at Nordic Village you can buy a 1 bedroom unit for under $100K and have access to pool, tennis, basketball, paddle boats, etc.. I have 2 2 bedroom "lock out" style units for under $150K. A lock out means that the unit can be divided into 2 separate 1 bedroom 1 bath and 1 kitchen and 1 dining area and 1 living room, both with either a patio or deck. That means that they can be rented as 1 2 bed 2 bath unit or split up for owner use and rental or 2 rentals. An example of income for one of these, after the resort takes out the management/rental fees (that really make this a hands-off rental for you) is around $9-10K net income. However, the condo fees are just over $500/month. In other words, you can expect your condo fee and property taxes to be paid by rentals. The amenities package is expensive but it makes for a very good rental program. There are a couple of other local resorts with similar programs but Nordic Village seems to be the most desirable.
Obviously, working with a knowledgeable and experienced local agent can be very beneficial to help you navigate the ins and outs of the different locations as well as to help you understand the historical benefits and best practices. I wouldn't trust this type of investment search to anyone that can't show you a proven track record of many years and transactions. Ultimately I also believe that you need to trust your gut instinct and pick an agent you really feel you can trust.

Hi,

I actually have a bank owned listing that will be put on the market soon at Vista View condos so it would be smart to get it on the market as soon as possible because the bank listing will put downward pressure on the price.
This is a great exampleof why you may want to pay a commission to give your home the best chance of selling: Market expertise. The only Vista View lane in the area is actually in North Conway NH (town of Conway) and is near Cranmore Mountain. I ski at Cranmore a few days a week and I always ride the chair with people so that I might find buyers and sellers. My wife is a manager at Cranmore and is asked directly if she knows of good real estate in the area.
Popping your property on craiglslist and trulia sounds easy but it isn't. You should really consider working with someone that is here and can work the sale for you. The end result is always a higher sale price.
My company has over 50% market share int he area and I personally rank on Page 1 of Google Yahoo and Bing. Put your property in front of more buyers for bets results.

Hi Maureen,

I apologize that you never received an answer to your question from Trulia. In the future, if you have any questions for, or about, Trulia, please assign them to our Using Trulia category so that we can find them right away and respond. Alternatively, it's highly recommended to contact our Customer Service Team directly via the link below when such issues arise.

I've done some research and it appears that this issue has been corrected. When I search for the listing in question, I'm directed to the following page which makes no mention of 'Notice of Default' and shows your contact information.

http://www.trulia.com/property/1076732024-39-Fox-Run-Rd-Bartlett-NH-03812

Also, when I performed a search on Google for "auction fox run bartlett nh", the only results I found for Trulia brought me to this question.

I hope everything was squared away long ago, however if there are any issues that haven't been addressed, please let us know.

Best Wishes,

Emily Gibson
