A few days ago, after I got most of my real estate appointments set up for a couple of days, I thought it would be a great idea to spend an afternoon taking a hike in Danbury's Tarrywile Park. It's a great spot to enjoy nature in all of it's glory with over 700 acres and over 21 miles to trails. With my camera in hand and sunglasses on, I took a short drive over to the Southern Boulevard entrance, a short trip from anywhere in Danbury. The city of Danbury purchased the land about 25 years ago from a developer that was hoping to create a community similar to Heritage Village in Southbury and has continued to acquire land over the years, making it today larger than Central Park in New York City. With a terrain varying from large open meadows to dense forested hills as well as a couple of...

What a Listing Agent Provides Selling a home is among the largest financial undertakings that most of us deal with, but the process can go smoothly with the help of the right listing agent. As a seller, you should interview candidates until you meet a person who understands your needs, and can help you from listing to closing. When you sign a contract with a listing agent, you agree to pay a commission, probably between 4 and 6 percent of the selling price, or possibly a flat fee. This is a major financial transaction and you should be happy with the marketing plans for your home. Here’s what you can expect a listing agent to do: Set the listing price An agent should be able to provide you with a competitive market analysis (CMA). This free assessment compares your home to similar ones ...
