Of the last few listings that I have had, the owners received about 96.8% of the last asking price, which is above area market averages per smart mls.In the last 7 listings that I had, for townhomes in the area, my homeowners had their home in contract averaging under 87 days, with a median of 76 days.

If you are house hunting in the Greater Danbury area,there should be times after reviewing homes that you have to decide whether you want to try to go for the house with an offer right away, arrange for a 2nd visit, ask questions or pass on the house. If you feel this is the 'one' and would be upset if some one else gets the house before you can try for it by making an offer, I would recommend calling your real estate agent as soon as possible to discuss. Items to include are obvious how much should we start off at, what do you think the house might or should end up selling for, as well as terms and conditions of the sale. Homes in certain prices in the Danbury,CT area selling very quickly from when they hit the market for sale.

It is true that there are several complexes that are quite similar to each other, but there are also a number of different settings, offering a different size, layout or neighborhood environment.Most of Danbury, units where created from the ground up by local developers. Some condos in the area exist because of re-purpose old factories, adding on to a singel family home and converting them or taking former apartment houses are making them into condominiums. Square footage and setup can vary, anything from  offer 400 square feet with a common entrance,up to 3000 square foot plus a finished basement.  Some offers views of Candlewoo...
