Fortunately for home sellers, it is a good time to sell. Prices have increased due to a shortage of the properties in the Greater Danbury area. I recently read somewhere that the current number of homes in Danbury is only half of the amount that were listed at the same time in 2020.

As much as we want to bring to help absentee owners, it is not a real estate agent's job to be the contractor or person responsible for a complete cleanup. The real estate agent should visit the property and prepare a general list of what should or shouldn't be done for possibly a satisfactory price. At the time of the initial visit if the owner is out of town, the agent should send data &; time stamped photos to the client.  The owner should also a trusted friend or family member view the home prior to any work being planned.The agent should review real estate activity with the seller client prior to so they can understand the market and tentatively give the owner an idea of what current as-is value is as well as an idea of what the value should be if they invest time and money into im...

There's a lot of things to consider when purchasing a fixer upper home in the Greater Danbury,CT to live in. The right fixer upper could lead to quick quity if done properly. Please consider the following:1. Can the home be mortgaged right now?Some homes in need of upgrades or repairs could be in such poor state of repair it may not qualify for financing. FHA loans are very picky and some sellers may be want to take an offer with that contingency. 2. What is the cost to repairAn experienced contractor should give you an estimate on the costs to repair. Always have a contingency fund available for any overages or unexpected property issues. Major renovations, such as kitchens & baths can get expensive. It also be be costly to take down any walls or reconfigure the floor plan. Some repair...

It has been a strange and challenging time in the year of 2020. When it comes to real estate, some of the media reported that there is only really high demand for single family home-not such more condos or townhomes. Believe it, condos and townhome are still in still demand in Danbury,CT.  For a number of reasons including low interest rates, high rent , affordable values compared to nearby areas of New York State and lower Fairfield County,Connecticut.  Townhomes in the area are typically attractive to buyers since they are generally newer that comparable single family homes, allow for maintenance free living and several communities do offer on-site amenties. If you think it might be time to leave your townhome to upgrade locally or leave the area, you may in a good position to receive...
