As a real estate professional in the Danbury area, my job is to educate home sellers on the local market in order for them to sell their home in a reasonable time period for a good price. My goal in partnering with you is to not list to the home too low so that you would be leaving any equity on the table. Also, we don't want to decide to go too high based on the recent sales, otherwise you will be sitting on the market costing you time and then having to reduce to the price I provided you.However, at the end of the day when homeowners decide to list the home, they decide on the dollar amount that goes into the listing contract. It is their home and owners decide on what they'd like to start off at. Due to the tight housing market in the Danbury,CT area homes, owners can try out a highe...

As a home buyer, I am sure that you are on several different websites and using different apps on your smart phone or tablets in hopes of striking gold-the perfect new home for sale. When you see a home online-what do you do to get an in person look. If you are already working with buyers agent, contact them to make a visit. Under Connecticut consumer protection law, home buyers must have a contact with their agent in order to introduce them to homes that are not listed with their brokerage firm or the agent themselves must sign an exclusive right to represent the buyer. It is not in your best interest to go from agent to agent when you are looking for a home. All real estate agents have access to the same database of available homes. It's a matter of deciding of who you want in your co...

Moving can be a scary process. It's tough to leave where you have set up roots, whether owning your home for over 20 years or moved in just about five years ago. There's a new journey ahead of you; whether across the country or into a larger home for  your growing family.The actual selling part of your home may be a little challenging, especially if you haven't been active in the real estate market recently. You need to partner with an experienced local real estate expert to help you get the most out of house out. Your housing expert should provide ongoing updating the marketing, communication on the offer and guiding you on the steps to the closing table.  There may be surprises that could come up along the way, but some of which could be good or possibly negative. You could possibly g...
