OK, so the holiday shopping season starts off with Black Friday and now we have Cyber-Monday to boot! Crazy people are up at 4 a.m. running around the stores in the Lakes Region trying to find that special item to buy before they are all gone. I’m not sure which are the hottest items but I am sure there will be plenty of iPods, iPads, iPhones, flat screens, Xboxes, Wiis, Kindles (and some candles), Nooks, Droids, Blackberries, digital this and digital that sold over the next week. But the big thing is everyone wants to buy something at bargain basement prices. Everyone wants a deal, a steal, something on sale at 25-50% off, a deep discount, or a big bargain. So let’s try and sell some homes on Cyber-Monday at a bargain basement prices, too! Oh, that’s right, I forgot. They have been at bargain basement prices for some time. You just need someone to point them out? Right?

Well, maybe we just need to have a different marketing approach when selling homes. After all, I don’t think they would sell as many Wiis if they had called it a Woo, Wee-Wee, or Waa. Who would have thought to market a phone as a Blackberry or Droid? But, that worked and they are selling by the millions! Calling a place to live in just a plain old “house” or “home” doesn’t have marketing flair.


Maybe a new, exciting name for these already deeply discounted homes might excite buyers. So, I thought given the name recognition of the iPhone it would be a good idea to combine it with “abode” to make iBode! The“iBode”will no doubt attract considerable attention in the marketplace this holiday season as the hottest new gift offered at bargain basement prices! Just think, we can offer iBodes while they last at 35% or more off retail pricing! Who wouldn’t want one?



Well, here are a few iBodes to ponder that have been reduced in price significantly since they were first listed. I’m not saying that these are real deals—just that the price has been reduced by quite a bit indicating that, well, just maybe the owner wants to actually sell his iBode. First up is an iBode at 126 Washington Street in Laconia. This is a turn of the century iBode Patriot model with 2,109 square feet of living space, three bedrooms, two full baths and a one car garage on just about an acre of land close to Bond Beach. The price started at $235,000 and they are down to $133,000 and it is a short sale. That’s 57% of the original asking price! Put a sale price tag on that at the outlet malls and it would be gone. I am not saying that the $235,000 original price was correct but at the time they listed it was assessed at $230,6000 so it was probably fair. The current assessment is lower (like everyone else’s) at $151,600 but this seems like a potential bargain with some up side.



Over at 44 Jackson Street in Laconia there is an affordable 1,277 square foot, two bedroom (which could be converted back to three), one bath iBode Intro model that is on the market for $110,000. It was originally offered at $154,900 and it was assessed for $161,500 but that was adjusted down to $110,500 so you know the asking price is right on.



At 46 Pine Street in Laconia there is a 2,856 square foot, 4 bedroom 1 ˝ bath iBode Patriot model that was originally offered at $189,900 which has been reduced to $139,900 as a short sale. This solid iBode has fantastic woodwork, pocket doors, tin ceilings, stained glass, upgraded systems, and a fantastic Jacuzzi room above the heated garage. The current tax assessment of $217,000 makes this property one of those steals that you get up at 3 a.m. for.



There is a brand new model, the iBode Contempo, at 3 Sun Lake Drive in Belmont which was ginally offered at $529,000 and has been reduced to $349,000. That kind of sounds like a bargain, but you have to remember, sometimes new models of the iBode have to have the bugs worked out. There always seems to be a glitch somewhere. But this 2,990 square foot iBode has four bedrooms, three baths, a nice open floor plan with hardwood and tile floors, a screened porch, two car garage, and views of Winnisquam. The seller is “motivated” and this one is offered at a “Blow Out” price. It says so right on the MLS sheet! There’s even a $5,000 appliance allowance that will allow you to shop for even more “Blow Out” deals on some stuff to cook on and keep your beverages cold. With an assessment of $409,400 this sounds like an “American Pickers” no brainer.

This is just a sampling of the great deals on iBodes available today. You can a buy many different models of the IBode and you can even purchase aftermarket skins and applications to individualize your iBode to your own personal taste and lifestyle.The iBode is, no doubt, going to be the greatest holiday gift ever!
In the spirit of Cyber Monday, and for the first time ever, Click here and you will see a list of the 200+ best deals on iBodes in the Lakes Region (based on asking price compared to assessed value) right now and where you can get yours before they are all gone!

Happy Holiday shopping to one and all!!
